Neck Stretching? | Tight Calves | HFS Post-Op [ASK ERIC]

In today’s QnA video, I answer the following questions:

What’s the best way to stretch and strengthen a sore neck? – Mike Burke, US [00:46]

I’m dealing with some tight calves and I’m finding that no matter how much I stretch them it’s not getting the job done.

What do you recommend? – Shane Walters, Toronto [04:32]

I had a hip replacement (severe osteoarthritis) in December.

When I’m cleared for exercise, is the HFS program appropriate to rebuild strength and flexibility in the joint – Glenn Sunshine, US [08:43]

If you’ve got a question about training for MMA or martial arts, nutrition, injuries or anything else that you’d like me to answer in a future QnA video, submit it here.

I also had upper and lower cross syndrome and a dodgy neck and wrist. I have caused most of this myself through years of lifting with bad form.

Hey Eric,
Good advice. Just be cautious after hip replacement not to get crazy with the joint mob series in the HFS. Takes time for the hip joint capsule to heal. Makes me nervous

Great video Eric, looking forward to trying out the neck stretch. My neck is often stiff after a heavy deadlift session.

Hey Eric, I just did those two exercises for the calves and I feel so much better. My physiotherapist said that the main issue with the tendonitis I’ve been having in the right foot, and it was killing me. Those exercises just erased the pain. Feeling great. Thanks once again for taking the time to help me with this. Your the best man.
