    Are there muscles more important than others?

    I’ve heard a lot of times things like: train your glutes for speed, your hamstrings are the most important muscles for speed, train your core for stability, your posterior chain is the most important for athletic performance.
    I actually believe that all muscles are important for athletic movements. If they weren’t, we wouldn’t have them. I’d like to know if you agree that all muscles are crucial for sports and if there needs to be balance between them, or if you actually believe that there are muscles more important than others.

    This depends on the context really obviously some body parts are required more depending on the sport in question, such as:-

    Professional arm wrestling won't be too focused on lower half of their body. Same as a cyclist is not going to need massive pectorals.

    So it depends on your sport in question.

    Edit:-

    So reading your previous question the answer is in this one

    https://forum.bodybuilding.com/showt...hp?t=177775331

    Do footballers need muscle, no of course they don't Iniesta was one of the best midfielders ever and he is a skinny rake. But will having some decent level of muscle effect your sporting performance certainly not a lot of top professional footballers have solid amounts of muscle. One part you certainly shouldn't skip would be leg day.

    You're very good at rephrasing the same question over and over.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Most important: Broceps maximus
    Least important: the other ones
