It’s hard to believe but the really impressive Muscle Imbalances Revealed product that I reviewed here just a few months ago has already been re-released by Rick Kaselj as version 2.0, and the improvements are great! For those that bought the original Muscle Imbalances Revealed, you get a free upgrade (and will continue to do so for the life of the product), which is a really neat perk that they didn’t have to do.
For those that didn’t get in on the original Muscle Imbalances Revealed, now may be the time as the product has gotten even better. You can read my full review here but continue on below to read about what is in the new 2.0 version.
What’s new for Muscle Imbalances Revealed 2.0
#1 – Muscle Imbalance Exercises for the Lower Body
Rick got a lot of feedback on Muscle Imbalances Revealed, and the number one thing they wanted was MORE EXERCISES. For MIR2, Rick added more exercises that help address muscle imbalances in the lower body.
This bonus is a live presentation from Rick where he went through well over 50 exercises to address muscle imbalances in the lower body. Some of them are unique and different, but very effective. You get the video of the presentation and a handout with pictures of all the exercises.
#2 – Fascia, Exercise & Muscle Imbalances – Part 2
According to Rick, The video presentation in MIR 1.0 that got the most feedback and response was the video on fascia. This presentation specifically talks about Training the Myofascial Lines for Back Injuries.
We’ve talked about Anatomy Trains and the fact that fascia is not commonly taught well in our schools. In Fascia, Exercises & Muscles Imbalances Part 2, the fascia is explained in great detail. But better yet, it is explained how you can address fascia with exercises in order to get better results. In the presentation, Dean Somerset goes through this:
- 4 ways of assessing anatomical lines of force
- What these assessments tell you and what to do about them
- Designing an exercise program based on the anatomical lines of force
- Why anatomical lines of force are so important
- What happens to these lines of force on a day-to-day basis
- How most people injure these anatomical lines of force
#3 – Naked Running
There has been a lot of talk about barefoot running lately, including a lengthy discussion in a past post here. So Rick asked Jon-Erik Kawamoto to write an eBook on the topic so he could include the following information:
- Those five finger shoes, do they work or do they look goofy
- Are shoe companies wrong in the way they design shoes
- How to make your own zero drop shoe
- Is barefoot running for you
- Where did this barefoot running thing come from
#4 – You Get Everything Else
You get everything else from the original Muscle Imbalances Revealed. If you missed my original review, you can read it here. All together you are looking at a very lengthy program with the added bonus of being eligible for NSCA and NASM CEU credits. Plus, a 60-day money back guarantee, pretty hard to beat! One of the favorite options I liked was that you can save a few bucks and not get the DVDs shipped to you, and just get online access to the videos. Even better, you can download them to your computer, iPod, and iPad, pretty sweet! I have a few of those talks on my iPad now.
Here is a nice demo clip from Mike Robertson’s talk:
