Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 2/3/17
It’s been an eventful week. You’ll know why when you read below. Lets get to the meat and potatoes shall we?
Stuff to Check Out Before You Read Stuff
1. Oh, Hello
Han Gandalf Gentilcore Julian Lewis Gentilcore. Born 1/31/17 at 12:22 PM.
Lisa and I are so happy, excited, and tired….;o) Lisa, by the way, was a CHAMPION. Thanks to everyone who sent well-wishes via email, social media, and texts.
And so it begins…..
2. Appearance on Ben Coomber Radio
I had the pleasure of being invited onto the Ben Coomber Radio Show recently.
In typical fashion I was witty, intelligent, and cunning. But that’s just my own assessment. Ben’s a pro and has one of the most successful health/fitness podcasts over in the UK. We dive right into things and start talking about “effective” gym training. At about 30 minutes, it’s the perfect thing to listen to on your commute. Or to pass time as your significant other watches The Bachelor/Walking Dead (depending on gender).

3. Latest article on MensHealth.com: 4 Push-Up Mistakes You’re Making
Despite it’s popularity and recognition as an exercise staple, nothing gets more eye-rolls when I plan them into a program (especially from guys) than push-ups.
Stop being a nimrod and do them right…..HERE.

Social Media Hightlights
On Turkish get-ups, if you have to rush to the next transition that speaks to lack of stability & ownership of the load. Please, go lighter.

My new favorite tricep exercise. KB Tricep Extension w/ Roll. Got the idea originally from @dr.joelseedman_ahp when he explained the advantage of using the KBs allow for more ROM. Here I perform a 3s eccentric on the way down then “roll” the elbows forward before pressing back up to the starting position. Perform these for 8-12 reps and you’ll love it.
Comments for This Entry
John J BrooksGreat point on the TGU. That is a movement that so strongly improves movement quality, so long as you put quality in it. One of the biggest mistakes I made early was adding TGUs to complexes. People rushed through them.. wasn't helpful. Instead I added them either to the warm-up, or as a partner challenge (follow the leader style) I got much more benefit from them.

TonyGentilcoreThat's pretty much the only time I program them too, John. Either as part of an extended warm-up, or as it's own "thing," corrective.
