    I've spent the last 2 years recovering from a weight lifting/RSI injury. Recovery is good, and I've learned to take things slow, listen to my body, and not overuse the muscles being rehabilitated.

    I've never really been in physically good shape, except maybe when I did gymnastics when I was 8. I'm skinny, and eat a healthier than average, gluten-free diet, but I didn't play much sports as a kid, and honestly spent most of my adolescence in front of a computer screen.

    The reason I mention that brief history is because I suspect there's lots of little muscles, tendons, er...fascia and other important tissue that hasn't been developed since I haven't moved my body much.

    Since I've been going to the gym and working out the major muscle groups (leg press, chest press, leg raises, inverted situps) it's going ok so far, but after spending several months rehabilitating my wrist flexors/extensors/supinators, I want to make sure that all the other small muscles/tendons in my body are developed enough so I don't injury myself again in a different area.

    I'm swimming, and also doing light cable work on my rotator cuff, but would like to get a more comprehensive look at all the little muscles and deeper muscles.

    Where can I find good info on this? I'm not sure what keywords to put into Google. Stabilizers? Tendons? Small muscle groups?

    Figured you guys would know. icon_smile.gif

    The Bosu ball is good for stability exercises.

    I don't normally peddle products on RJ (mostly because I can't be bothered to argue with "personal trainers" who think stability ball training is where it's at), but here are two sites from which I derive ZERO benefit (financial or otherwise) that I would support:
