Movement Debrief Episode 108 is in the books. Below is a copy of the video for your viewing pleasure, and audio if you can’t stand looking at me. Here is the setlist:
- What is anterior pelvic orientation/tilt?
- How does this happen with different infrasternal angle presentation?
- When do I coach breathing sequences within a lift like the squat and deadlift?
- How does the breathing sequence differ if I am coaching a squat/deadlift for movement options versus max effort?
- What could a squat be useful at improving movement-wise?
- How about a hinge?
- What are the benefits of handstands?
- How can headstand and handstand variations be used to improve movement options?

Here is a great video where Bill Hartman deep dives into testing hip flexion
Decline quadruped on elbows is an early activity I use if I need to invert someone:
Here is one of the first headstand variations I use:

Anterior Pelvic Orientation
I was recently talking to a group about Wide and Narrow ISAs and the effect on the pelvis and referred to a video you did on the anterior orientation coming from “at the pelvis” or “above the pelvis”
I explained it the best I could but I remember your video with the model being quite easy to understand!
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find that bit I wanted and was hoping you could help me out with a link so I can pass on your great work you continue to do
Breathing During Squats and Deadlifts
When do you prescribe inhale-pause-exhale during squats and deadlifts?
Hey Zac – if u fancy something different for a debrief – how about talking about the benefits of Handstand Practise [ie against a wall for most people] for posture, breathing, muscle balance etc.
- Wide infrasternal angles have extension within the pelvis due to sacral nutation from an exhaled axial skeleton
- Narrow infrasternal angles have extension above the pelvis due to increased anteroposterior ventral cavity dimensions
- Early-phase squatting and deadlifting should focus on setting the stack and then teaching the movement
- If going after specific limitations, inhale into the limitations
- Valsalva maneuvers are useful for max effort lifts
- Handstands are a great terminal exercise to improve upper thorax anteroposterior compression; with headstands being the intermediary
