Here is an exercise that MOST people overlook and could really benefit from if done regularly. Sometimes when people have wrist, forearm or elbow pain it's from stiffness, a lack of range of motion and/or weakness. This easy to do exercise will address all of those issues and help improve your grip strength.
Personal training in any format, 1 on 1, small group, or online is a lot more then just the right program design for your goals. Accountability and motivation come into play just as much as program design for most people whose biggest issue is never sticking to anything and lack those 2 things.

There are so many neglected things when it comes to fitness. One of them that can easily be worked in but isn't often is eye hand coordination. Check out this weeks video to boost not only your eye hand coordination but your core strength as well.
The actions your core performs when you rotate are EXTREMELY important. It's also EQUALLY important for your core to NOT rotate. Learn the standard Pallof Press, an anti-rotation exercise to make sure you add into your programming!

If you've ever wanted to try out a steel mace but didn't want to have to spend a lot of money on it right away this post is for you! In the video below I will be going over how to make your own adjustable mace for a few dollars that works quite well.

If you've been looking to gain strength in your lower body but want to get more athletic try out the "Lunge Pause." The lunge pause will give you a totally different feel then the wallsit, while also kicking your glutes on and bringing balance and stability into play. Making this a much more athletic exercise!
A lot of people, even ones who workout super consistently lack the ability to get full hip extension.
Why should you care?
Well without full hip extension you really limit your ability to activate your glutes. This causes a whole host of problems: back pain, poor posture, muscle weakness, saggy butt, tight hips, to name a few.
If you want to lose weight or gain muscle we need to be able to work hard, and do things that are pain free. If your glutes aren't strong enough or you lack the mobility to activate them it severely limits A LOT of your success.
In the video below I included 2 easy exercises almost anyone can do to include at the beginning of any workout you do, especially a lower body workout. While basic exercises fundamentally, these will have a HUGE impact across all of your training.
