One of my favorite new regressions for teaching the hinge is the Goblet Hinge (Thank you Justin and Cody from Parabolic!). Check out the demo below (I apologize for getting caught up in Let Me Clear My Throat). In the video my client is performing a timed, tempo set of the GH. He has notoriously tight hips/low back and has been put out of commission a few times due to deadlifts. Since we are in our GPP1- base building block, we are really taking our time and building up his

Especially in the Western world- developing a workaholic frame of mind is the standard for which most of us are told we must have to be successful. Push, push, and push some more. That's the o
Today is all about MOVEMENT, specifically the benefits associated with being aerobically fit. I'm assuming a lot of people reading this love to crush weights, push there bodies hard with some heavy duty intervals (HIIT), and may occasionally forget their long run or their 5k row they had scheduled. I've been there plenty of times of myself, however recently have been trying to incorporate more low and high intensity aerobic work into my training week for a few reasons... 1.
