The Reverse salamander is a great way to improve muscle function of the core in a rotational manner. As shown here when I drop my hips to the left; my torso is in left rotation in relationship to my lower extremity. To get my hips back...

We're big advocates of the stork, or Captain Morgan, exercise for GLUTE STRENGTHENING. Once you can properly perform the stork, try implementing a little bit of sport specific movement into the exercise! Here, I'm trying my best to replicate the biomechanics at the hip for a...

If you don't know the importance scapular stability by now, then look back at our previous shoulder posts! A weak Serratus Anterior can lead to poor scapulo-humeral rhythm (episode 220 for more info) and shoulder impingement. Here is a great way to stabilize/strengthen the entire shoulder...

-The Glute's (Gluteus Maximus, Medius, and Minimus) perform 3 primary movements on the hip joint. These include: Hip Extension, Hip Abduction, and Hip External Rotation. -Often times there is an over emphasis on individuals training in just one plane, the Saggital plan, via Hip Extension. While...

-There has been a recent paradigm shift from a structural approach towards a functional approach, for a good reason. This is primarily due to the work of Vladamir Janda (part of the Prague school of Rehab). Here is the difference between the two approaches: -A structural...

-The Tricep is a long, broad muscle that consists of 3 branches/heads which attach to the ulna/forearm. The responsibility of this muscle is to extend the elbow; however one of the branches (the long head), will aditionlly extend the shoulder. This is due to crossing...

We were recently introduced to this kettlebell swing variation by @cfartistry. It is a fantastic variation because the resistance increases as the band length increases. This means we can apply further load to the exercise at the STRONGEST POINT of the KB swing, with fully...

The Tensor Fasciae Latae also known as the “TFL,” originates on the ASIS and inserts on the Iliotibial tract. This muscle will abduct, flex, and internally rotate the Hip. When the Gluteus medius is weak, there is an increase demand of the TFL as a...

Athletes must return to pre-injury levels of strength and motor control to reduce future risk of injury. Quick support drills, dynamic landings, and cutting drills are examples of exercises that demand high levels of ankle proprioception, similar to the demands of the sports they want...

The archetype of virtually every movement where we are either producing a force or receiving a force involves a flexed hip position. This concept most definitely holds true when catching a barbell. Many times I’ve seen athletes’ form breakdown past 90% of their max lifts....
