*WeiRd* Exercise for DEEP SQUAT Mobility

Getting down into the bottom range of motion in the Squat is a fundamental human movement pattern that we’ve lost because of all the sitting we do. We don’t need to think anymore about it. But is getting down deep into the Squat an absolute necessity? You could argue against it because in modern western society, we…

I was browsing through the folder my assistant Madalina keeps for me with all the questions I get from practitioners around the world and I’ll be answering a few about shoulder impingement and some hip flexibility stuff related to my recent “front splits” video.

The WRONG Way to Set Goals (do this instead for LASTING results)

Ahhhh, New Years Resolutions… Set by millions around the world. Broken just a couple of months (or even days) later by those same millions. As such, a lot of “experts” look down upon setting them.

Build Shoulder Strength and Stability [20 Second Reps]

The lovely mailman recently delivered these to my house: And I used them for the first time yesterday. I went out to a local playground and attached them to this cargo net style apparatus that kids climb up because it was the highest anchor point where I could hang and do my thing. A few kids who…

New Exercise for Rotational Hip Power

I have not seen this exercise before and came up with it because I’m more and more on a quest to find new techniques to train movements and muscles in the transverse (rotational plane) because these muscles are so underworked with regular Squats, Deadlifts, Bench Presses and Lunges and because they’re so critical to joint…
