Find Your Balance

Every day is a balancing act, literally! No, really. You balance every single day, even when walking on flat surfaces. It’s very easy to take it for granted because it’s such an automatic part of life for most of us. While this kind of “balancing” is pretty second-nature, improving overall balance fundamentals offers great benefits. […]

Squatting is both an exercise and a basic human movement. Whether you like squats or not, you probably do it multiple times every day. Odds are nobody has told you that your knees can’t go past your toes as you sit down on the toilet, but try that in the gym in front of certain […]

4 Persistent Deadlift Myths That Are Holding You Back

Deadlifts are perhaps one of the best exercise you can do, not matter your age, size, or fitness level, and it pains me every time I hear someone say they don’t like to deadlift. It’s like they just said they don’t like kittens. Kittens! Admittedly, I like kittens more than I like deadlifts, but deadlifts […]

Band-resisted exercises don’t always garner the respect they deserve. Often considered inferior to using barbells, dumbbells, and kettlebells, band-resisted exercises tend to tend to have a reputation for being only for beginners or inexperienced lifters. Even more disappointing, in some circles, resistance bands are perceived as tools used strictly for rehab or physical therapy. I […]
