To put it simply, you wake up one day and you just sort of start feeling old. And it happens to everyone. It’s inevitable. But youContinue reading “Intro to Arthritis – Exercise is the Best Medicine”

Improve Your Mobility Tenfold – Get Your Ass on the Ground
How often do we see someone squat like this in public? It’s not something you typically see in a world run by desk jockeys and business people. Imagine being in a desk all day, typing away for eight hours at a time in a dog doodoo posture. Tight spines and hip flexors. Immovable midback andContinue reading “Improve Your Mobility Tenfold – Get Your Ass on the Ground”

An Eye into my Coaching Ethos
Hey, Here’s the thing. I’m not a coach who’s going to yell at you or shame. And I think that’s because I did that to myself for years. It hurt to hear those thoughts in my head, and tear myself down.

The PPSC and Humility
There is something positively contagious about learning something new. An impulse to open up and share new knowledge with the world.

It’s a common obstacle. And every single day, someone will tell me how much they hate something, don’tContinue reading “I Am Lost and Don’t Know What Exercise to Do!

Where do I get my exercises from?
Not really anywhere special. Youtube. Instagram. Google. It comes from my brain and exploration of movement. Something that always bugged me is the inconsistencies in movement pattern nomenclature. And maybe that is where I need more growth. But when a Doctor tells me there is a deficit in metatarsal extension and flexion, that’s not goingContinue reading “Where do I get my exercises from?”
Bodyfat norms for all you rascals out there! I usually preach an improvement in bodyfat over looking solely at weight loss due to it being a better indicator of health program adherence ( food, exercise, sleep, hormonal balance, etc). Where you at??
All Bout Gout
Gout. Just saying that word makes me smile. I’m not sure why and I couldn’t care less. But it’s one of those words that just rolls off your tongue. Which is sort of the opposite of what gout is. Gout is when urate accumulates in your joints, forming little crystals, leading to tons of inflammationsContinue reading “All Bout Gout”
