Two Backside Exercises For Every Frontside Move

Celebrity and professional-athlete trainer Todd Durkin has seen his fair share of sports-related injuries that (unfortunately) take clients out of commission. To prevent these types of setbacks, Todd recommends his clients counter classic moves with back-strengthening moves in a 2:1 ratio — "for every frontside exercise you do, you should do two backside exercises" in order to keep the entire body strong and prevent muscle imbalances.

The next time you're at the gym, try incorporating two back-strengthening exercises for every traditional move that works the front of your body. When you're not dealing with pain or pressure from muscle imbalances, you'll have Todd to thank.
