The Kinetic Chain and How to Apply It

The human body is not made up of isolated segments of muscles, bones, connective tissue, and ligaments. Rather, the body is a series of interconnected parts that all impact each other. This impact can either be positive or negative. Ideally, when the kinetic chain is incorporated, the human body works as a holistic collection of parts working in harmony to help create coordinated and optimal movement patterns.

When this concept is incorporated into a training program, it can play a fundamental role in unlocking the body’s performance potential and reduce the chance of injury.

In this blog, we’ll go over the kinetic chain and how you can assess your clients’ needs and program effective and safe exercises for their fitness goals.
