Toes. Love ’em or hate ’em, they’re important

Over the past two or so months, the number of people I have met who can’t get into a plank, perform a walking lunge or split squat (among other positions) because they can’t bend their toes back far enough has really astounded me. I am sure I have met people over the years that also

‘Engage Your Shoulders!’…But Am I Doing it Right?

We’ve all probably heard (or even said for those instructors reading this post) “engage your shoulders”, but what does that mean? What do we mean? Do we know? Do our students? There have definitely been many discussions on this topic and there are plenty of instructors who have a strong belief in their method. I

Do Your Legs Have Intention (part 2)

Welcome to part 2 of my posts on Leg Intention. Last month in part 1 we discussed what leg intention is and how to use it in movements, training and exercises. We explored a few positions when on all fours and I am going to pick up with a few other positions to add in

Do Your Legs Have Intention? (part 1)

Leg Tension or Leg Intention as I like to call it. No, I am not referring to leg tension where you are feeling tight muscles restricting your movement, but rather tension you created with muscle contraction. Leg Intention, as I usually say, is creating purpose in your legs. It’s an isometric contraction of some or

Yay it’s Summer, but that doesn’t mean you can skip the Warm-up!

It’s HOT! But that doesn’t mean you can skip the warm-up. The warm-up is so much more than just warming up your muscles before you train, it’s preparing the mind and the body for the activities ahead.   Here’s all the great reasons you still need to warm-up even when it’s warm out Warm-ups….
