Aaron Nelson - NASM Expert, Sports Medicine, answered on behalf of National Academy of Sports MedicineThe first thing to do is a thorough assessment which includes the overhead squat, single leg squat, goniometer assessment and manual muscle testing. Use the information from this assessment to correct any muscular imbalances. Once the imbalances are corrected, we will move into a stabilization program, followed by a strength training program. It is important not to jump right into a strength training program. Almost anyone can get bigger, faster and stronger right away, but until you establish boundaries and criteria for imbalances and correcting these imbalances you can set yourself up for injury.
