Quick Response – Deadlift Initiation

A shout-out to Ms. Laura for asking about the mobility necessary to start the deadlift!

Joking or not, she raises a question that is covered on a repetitive basis in the office.  Many of my patients haven’t used their hamstrings in years or decades.  Turning on the awareness and motor control to sync lower extremity to pelvis and rib cage for good functional movement can be… ah… well… yeah… a bit of a chore!

But your all worth it, so enjoy the follow-up video.

#NeverMiss – Front Lunge

Walking, Jogging, and Running should be well developed skills, lasting until the day we die!

Fine-tuning the front lunge allows us to understand, develop, and train the walk, jog, and run mechanic, allowing for pain-free movement for much longer than we realize.
