The fitness program you practice must include skeletal alignment corrective methods, and principles that ensure your workout is symmetrical.

In order to achieve gorgeous definition, your muscles must be lengthened to their full capacity while you are exercising. If you fail to include this important element, you run the risk of creating muscular misbalances, reducing muscle functionality, and promoting injury.

Creating gorgeous definition is only possible when the muscles being conditioned are held at full length, and you work your body symmetrically across all sagittal, frontal and transverse planes. And since full muscle length is only possible when your skeleton is in its correct alignment, you must therefore ensure the program you practice pays particular attention to the corrective alignment of your skeleton.

To be complete AND effective, the skeletal alignment work incorporated should include instructions for corrective adjustments to your feet, knees, pelvis, spine, bottom of rib cage, chest, shoulders, back of neck, chin and crown. If any of these areas are ignored, you will not get your best results.
