Deadlift Stance, Measuring Hip Rotation, and Hemorrhoids – Movement Debrief Episode 102

Movement Debrief Episode 102 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: How does the infrasternal angle (ISA) relate to deadlift stance? Which ISA presentation are typically better deadlifters? How can I select the most effective deadlift stance What’s the difference between measuring hip rotation in sitting, prone, and supine? What are hemorrhoids? What may be a mechanical cause for hemorrhoids? What movement limitations may be present? How can I go about improving hemorrhoids?

Ribcage Pump Handle, Hip Rotation, and Compliance – Movement Debrief Episode 62

Movement Debrief Episode 62 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 are pump handle mechanics at the ribcage? How do pump handle mechanics impact thorax mobility? What treatment would you use to restore pump handle mechanics? What hip rotation limitations would you expect with various infrapubic angles? How would you treat hip rotation deficits? When a client says “it’s not hard for me anymore, why do I need to keep doing it?” how would I respond? If you want to watch these live, add me on Facebook or Instagram. They air every Wednesday at 7pm CST.

Next Level Lower Body: Pelvis Mechanics and Single Leg Exercise

Want to develop a comprehensive approach to restoring movement to help someone in pain? An approach that allows you to enhance your client’s movement repertoire so there are multiple ways to help them reach their fitness goals? My seminar, Human Matrix: The Code for Maximal Health and Performance, can help you attain these very goals. I will teach you how by providing you a comprehensive assessment to pinpoint your client’s movement limitations, practical exercise application to aid in restoring movement deficiency, and learn how to coach loaded movements to build client fitness and resiliency. Below are two snippets of the seminar. In the first snippet, we discuss compensatory pelvis mechanics. Understanding these mechanics can allow you to better appreciate how lower body movement limitations can develop, and what to do about them (note, you may want to check out normal mechanics here before going all abnormal). In the second video, we discuss single leg loading variations. Executing these movements to perfection build up what was gained in the compensatory mechanics section. If you would like to attend a seminar and dive further, look no further then the links below. October 27th-28th – Kansas City, MO (Early bird ends September 30th!) November 10th-11th – Portland, OR (Early bird ends September 30th!) December 8th-9th – Charleston, SC February 2nd-3rd – New Providence, NJ Otherwise, enjoy the videos!
