You’ll get the earlybird back door link if you’re already on the waiting list, Kathy. No worries!
Good evening Steve
This is another great video! Just shared your link with my customers. This confirms I am in the “good trainers” group.
Thank you so much! Love what you do!
Thanks Chantal! Yes…now your are officially in the “good trainers” elite group! You’re going to love what’s all in the full coaching course! Keep spreading the good word!
Great post Dr. Steve,
thank you for letting people know how important proper form is while exercising.
It’s critical stuff, Michael. Thanks for your comment!
Thank you so much for posting this Steve. I get sooo frustrated watching all of the damaging, dysfunctional “fitness” going on. It seems ubiquitous, and it also seems that nobody has the patience to learn correct form. As a soon to be Personal Trainer, I want to be able to get my clients fit and functional. Do you have any suggestions for ways to get aerobic/metabolic fitness safely while you are working on developing functional patterns?
I’m starting to realize that life is all about compromise, and nobody will have perfect form. Where do we draw the line between functional and damaging…
Thank you very much for all you do.
I was not aware of this Steve, I will be taking more notice of my workout buddy on our next chest/biceps workout, a big thanks excellent information
Form is everything, Donna. Keep it up!
I have entered my email address several times in the box above, but I have not received any confirmation email, so I don’t know if I will get the information about the new 7 day course on Core wellness coaching. Please advice,
Thanks, I enjoy getting the information from you.
I see that you signed up on 12-50-12 at 12:60pm Eastern time Maureen. A link was sent to your email for you to confirm about that time with the subject line “Confirm Your Request For Information”. It should be in your inbox somewhere. If not please let me know.
Another great video / tutorial!
When starting out on push ups, I used the wall, then the kitchen counter, then a table / desk, and then some stairs, so that I could progress down to the floor for a “full push up”.
Haven’t tried a pull up or chin up in years, but I do remember my shoulders being scrunched up.
Might try what you showed, with hanging and then putting my shoulders down. Great tip!
Nice tips on push ups. A perfect progression, Beth!
Pull ups are definitely a worthy goal. A lot of gyms have an “assisted” pull up machine that lets you load up a counterbalance weight so you can do the same thing you did with push ups and not mess with your perfect form.
You can also use a pull up assistance band like this one http://www.performbetter.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product2_10151_10751_1005629_-1_1000219_1000219_1000219_ProductDisplayErrorView
I have not used one myself so I can’t give an endorsement.
Good to hear from you!
Thank you for this EXCELLENT advice!!! You are so generous, and make so much good sense! I'm trying to reduce/avoid some shoulder impingement problems, and your advice will be very helpful in trying to improve my proper shoulder functionality! I'm so glad I found you! Thanks, again!
Excited to find this. At 8:58 bump the wall demo. Great reminder of how to do it correctly. Thank You!
I think this video describes why I am so excited about your course. When I teach piano, I spend a lot of time helping people make very, very basic skills automatic. The movements you teach in such clear detail were very natural to a child who developed normally. However my health issues have caused my body to forget how to move automatically. I needed to learn how to move, before I could progress. You have a gift of recognizing why just the effort of exercising is not enough to be able to move. Thank you for sharing it.
