Pushups for Neck Strength

An effective resistance training program is a balanced program. Every pulling exercise should be accompanied by a pushing exercise.

Split Squats and Creaky Knees

Knee pain can be caused by movement impairment. A movement impairment is similar to your car being out of alignment; even though you intend to drive in the middle of the road and hold the steering wheel steady, the car still pulls to the left or right. Walking, running, swimming, getting up out of chair, throwing a ball, swinging a racquet, etc. can all suffer movement impairments. Much like automobiles, our bodies need constant work, and our auto body shop is the gym and our tools are resistance training, core training, and stretching. Read More...
