Quick Reference

When weight training, it is good to work muscles on both sides of a joint. This achieves muscle balance. It reduces the risk of injury and improves physical performance. Muscle balance in the upper arm, for example, is achieved by training both the biceps (flexors that straighten the elbow) and triceps (extensors that bend the elbow). See also super-set system.
