Stability doesn’t mean you have to do some boring rehab program. Most people are surprised how hard this concept makes their training.
These methods will rapidly accelerate your results, but also teach the body to work more efficiently.
This workout takes you through four tough movements to build a strong foundation for the weeks ahead.
Since there are so many deadlift variations, it can be overwhelming to think about which one is the best one to train. In my mind, though, it is a rather easy question to answer.
Years ago I was lured into "corrective exercise" and "functional training" by a back injury. I can tell you what I learned from that experience - and what I do now (and it's not standing on a Bosu).
Why is it that people freak out over a badly performed snatch or kettlebell swing, but everyone thinks it's okay to have horrible form while using the sandbag?
Powerlifters and Olympic lifters have used variations of their lifts to improve their specific weaknesses for decades. We can use the same strategy with the deadlift with these variations.
Good training is about managing variables. Not some of the variables, not just the ones you think are cool, but all of them. And it is completely possible you might be unaware of all of the variables.
Barbells have a much younger history than we've been led to believe. They are also quite limited in design and application, and take up more space and money than is economical.
Last week we learned why kettlebells and sandbags make great training partners. This week we look at different movement progressions that use both tools, and why these movements are beneficial.
You've got a bunch of kettlebells and sandbags. You've got some amazing tools and here's how to put them together. I'm going to explain the science, show you a video, and give you three workouts.
Watch this video and read the article to understand the "sling systems" of the body, what's potentially missing from your programming, and exercises you can incorporate to address this.
