Many of the moves we use to improve range of motion are a little weird. What if I have a client who wants to lift them heavy-ass weights?
They want to feel like they did something.
How can we bridge this gap?

Applying the movement model to fitness
Don’t underestimate the power of some of these simple breathing moves. When coached well, your clients will shake and get absolutely cooked. It’s a beautiful sight.
Often, the key differentiator between feeling nothing and feeling a whole lot with some of the simple breathing moves is the stack. Make sure you have the stack.
But remember folks, these moves are not something we just throw into the program willy nilly. These moves are merely regressions of the common moves that we perform in the gym.
The Lewitt position is a regression of your midrange depth of the squat.
If we understand the different positions we need to utilize to improve various ranges of motion, we can pick common gym moves to get range of motion changes.
For example, if someone has a loss of external rotation, we might choose a 2 kettlebell front squat:
If I need internal rotation in the arms and legs, pushups could be MONEY:
Need to rotate like a boss? Well fam, a 1 arm press could change da game!
