1-minute mobility flow If you hate spending time on slow isolation mobility drills, try using something like this flow sequence. It gets your hips moving through flexion, internal & external rotation, extension and even some abduction to boot, plus makes you work on balance, core control, and your ability to keep up with the beat. You’ll also look like a damn ninja when you bust this out, which is always good to see. #mobility #ninja #breakdancefighting #blessed
I had a client train with me after working through many other trainers. She said she'd work with me forever because of 3 simple things: "You show up, you're on time & you have a plan ready. None of the others were ever able to do all 3 at once." It's a low bar. Hit it every time. https://t.co/NzQ1ymQDC3

I had the opportunity to appear on a bunch of really great podcasts in the past few weeks:

For those old-school folks who like to read words written with letters, here’s a few articles to satiate your desires.
What 3 Hybrid Physical Therapist/Strength Coaches Want You To Know About Pain, Exercise and Movement – Physio-Network.com
This was an awesome article with solid overviews of pain science, movement competency, and approaches very knowledgeable and practically skilled professionals use when describing pain or movement issues to their clients and patients.
6 Random Thoughts On Programming for and Coaching Young Athletes – Mike Robertson
One thing I love about reading Mike’s work is seeing where we agree and where he sheds light on potential blind spots I have in my own approaches. I picked out a lot of blind spots on this piece.
The Big Toe and the Squat – Tony Gentilcore
One of the first places I look when coaching someone’s squat is at their feet to see what’s happening during their eccentric phase. Tony writes a great outline of why feet on the squat matter, but specifically where that cheeky big toe may wind up in some less than perfect examples of squatting success.
Enjoy the rest of the week and stay warm, fam!
