Stability is the basis of strength and fitness itself. Not having the smaller muscles of the body working, or not having the various parts of your body working harmoniously, leads to an inability to progress in strength. Instead, you spend unnecessary effort in conditioning workouts and increase your risk of injury.


This doesn’t mean you have to do some boring rehab program, but you do need to train the body in different planes of motions, tempos, angles, and speeds. While this takes a bit more thinking, the rewards and results of using smart programs are far more fun in of themselves than the instant feeling of killing yourself in a singular workout.


Does this mean this workout isn’t challenging? You tell me. Most people are surprised how hard using these concepts actually makes their training.
