In the 80’s and 90’s the fitness industry in it’s infinite wisdom thought the best way to train the body was to work in a very isolated muscle centric manner. Often seated on a machine that controlled range and had very little degrees of freedom from a movement point of view. The theory being that if we can get the isolated muscles stronger, then as a whole we will function better. As our understanding of the body has increased most would agree that this wasn’t wrong but maybe incomplete when considering optimal human capacity.
