There are over 600 muscles in our body and it is easy to let go of one to exercise more than the other. However, there are a few important yet neglected muscles that many athletes should be paying attention to to strengthen them.
The multitude of muscles in our body makes up around a third of its weight. If you were to name important muscles in your body, which ones would you come up with? Probably pecs, quads, delts, lats, biceps and triceps.
Due to the bodybuilding industry, unattainable beauty in Hollywood movies, and culture, most people tend to focus their training around those muscles. However, there is more to going to the gym than having a defined chest and bigger arms.
