Perfect Posture, Excessive Knee Bend, and SFMA – Movement Debrief Episode 68

Movement Debrief Episode 68 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 set list:

  • What is perfect posture?
  • Why do extension-based exercises not improve posture?
  • How does respiration impact default posture?
  • Why would the back knee bend in a yoga pose when it needs to be straight?
  • What is occurring when we see knee bend when the hip is placed into extension?
  • What can we do to rectify this issue?
  • What are my thoughts on the SFMA?
  • Why do I not use the SFMA?
  • What is my current thought process instead?

If you want to watch these live, add me on Facebook . They air every Wednesday at 7pm CST.
