What you're viewing is a visual model I stringed together for the preferred visual learner. I have strictly focused on the main nerve structures distal to the knee. We are assuming hip flexion and knee extension here that would be contributing the neural tension. For DPT...

Having difficulty trying to teach someone how to use their hips with squatting? Here is an excellent technique that promotes a hip strategy with squatting. To be clear - it is ok for the knees to go over the toes and for the knees to travel...

The Pallof Press is a fundamental core exercise that supersedes the ab crunch anyday. The 'core' is a simpler term for a number of muscles that stabilize the trunk and pelvis. Not only do these muscles stabilize, they help transmit force from the legs to...

If you have access to a TRX system and still want to incorporate a leg exercise like the lunge, no problem. Suspension trainers like the TRX make three dimensional training easier with the ability to modify the demand and difficulty. I'm talking all three planes...

This exercise is a leg burner! I'm talking cardiovascular demand, leg strength, and muscle endurance. Utilizing the sliders AND the resistance band, this exercise achieves something normal lateral lunges cannot. I'm talking greater co-contraction and time under tension. As I initiate the exercise, I am activating...

Scapular muscles play a huge role in controlling and stabilizing shoulder movement. One cannot address the shoulder without first addressing the scapulae. The serratus anterior is among the important anterior scapulae muscles. Scapular winging (i.e. sick scapula) is a condition where the scapulae medial border...

People tend to use their upper traps too much when focused on rotator cuff work as the arm moves overhead. The middle and lower trap are important during overhead exercises to promote optimal mechanics. More importantly, we have to learn how to activate the trapezius...

The cervicothroacic junction (CTJ) can become a problematic area for people and may contribute to their neck, shoulder, or upper back symptoms. Mobility can be restricted secondary to stiff joints and/or soft tissue, and if soft tissue it could be limited due to weakness. Sometimes...
