The posterior chain is the foundation of our body and is also called “The Powerhouse”. All of the largest and most powerful muscles are included and it is designed to hold the body upright.
The anatomical term “posterior” refers to the backside of the body. Therefor the posterior chain refers to the muscles of the backside of the body, specifically the low back, gluteals, hamstrings and calf muscles.
Posterior-chain exercises involve contracting and lengthening the muscles in a chain-like manner. This is important factor for athletic movements that require strength, flexibility and fluidity to properly jump, rotate, lift or land. While isometric exercises should not be eliminated, training the posterior chain is vital for human movement-inspired workouts.
Training these can also help to reduce possible injury caused by weak or improperly functioning muscle groups. In addition, a strong posterior chain contributes to a strong core musculature, which reduces back pain and low-back injury, while also facilitating coordination and strength through the limbs.
The posterior chain is the most influential muscle group in the body. It can tremendously affect your athletic prowess and they are the prime movers of forward propulsion.
With such a huge role in athletic performance we cannot take programming for the posterior chain lightly.
