Best of 2013: Exercises You Should Be Doing

Share This:

Okay since it’s New Year’s Eve and this is the officially the last day of 2013 I figured I end the whole shebang with ONE last “Best Of” post.  This time around I’ll highlight some of the more popular exercises I introduced in my “Exercises You Should Be Doing” series.

I don’t know what everyone else’s plans are, but Lisa and I will be heading into Boston’s historical North End district – like we do every New Years since we’ve been together – for a late dinner and probably a cannoli or two. Or three.  Okay, four…..;o)

I’m lame and only stay up past midnight for maybe four nights out of the year so fingers crossed I’ll be able to pull it off.  But I have a sneaky suspicion that once the ginormous plate of chicken parmesan I’ll order comes out and is placed right in front of me I’ll brighten up and it will be go time.

Nonetheless I’d just like to take a few moments to thank everyone who routinely stops by on a daily basis and who also offer their continued support by “Liking” and sharing my posts.

This site continues to grow and it’s only because of you* and your support that that’s the case. Next stop world domination.  Just kidding.

But seriously, I’m looking at you Canada!

THANK YOU and Happy 2014!!!!

Kettlebell Lateral Lunge w/ Pulse – While I think it bodes it most peoples favor to master the sagittal plane first before venturing out into the frontal and transverse planes with their exercises, at the same time I feel a lot of people are stuck in their comfort zones and NEVER do anything outside of the sagittal plane.

This is an excellent exercise which not only works on adductor length but includes a killer anterior core component as well.

Off-Bench Oblique Hold w/ Pulse – Here’s another exercise which takes the “pulse” component and runs with it.  This is an exercise that we’ve been using at CP quite bit as of late.

1-Arm Perpendicular Landmine Row Meadow’s Row – This exercise as grown to be one of my favorite single arm rowing movements.  So badass.

Supine Band Pallof (Belly) Press – This was an exercise I only just recently added into the arsenal, and it’s already become a fan favorite at Cressey Performance.

Turkish Get-Up: Roll to Elbow Conundrum – This isn’t so much an “exercise” as it is a technique to help clean up one of the most butchered components of the turkish get-up.

* = I’d like to say it’s my good looks and charm, but we all know that’s a bold face lie. Except for the charm part. I’m very charming.

Hey, have you been working out???

Did what you just read make your day? Ruin it? Either way, you should share it with your friends and/or comment below.

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.

    Sometimes there is nothing better than a really tough workout that makes you sweat! To get prepared to the hardest trainings I am taking Military Grade Nutritionals. These products contain natural compounds and amazing bunch of herbs, which deliver pure energy, so I can easily go through 2 or even 3 consecutive training classes in the gym. Because of increased endurance I never more feel exhausted after my workouts. And the best part: my pounds go off easily and my shape is better than ever before!
