Kinetic link training (KLT) mentioned above is a system of training that aims to create biomechanical balance and stability within ‘essential movements’ rather than isolating muscle groups such as chest and legs. Put simply humans need to be good at pushing something with their body, not contracting their pec muscle well. If you are the type of person who is constantly battling injury, tightness or just working hard in the gym with traditional isolation exercises only to see no improvement in your athletic performance. KLT could be the link you are missing.
