3 Exercises all of my Clients Do

Three exercises every single one of my clients do:

1️⃣ BAND WALKS: All of my clients’ least favorite exercise, but f*** it. This part of the glute (glute medius) gets used every single day running, jumping, squatting, and the reality is most of America is far too sedentary. So you’re sitting at a desk all day and all of a sudden you decide you’re gonna go squat 150lbs and you’re wondering later that night why your back hurts. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link; you need to build your smaller muscles up as well.
2️⃣ FACE PULL: Again, the smaller muscles in your body are often neglected by weekend warriors. I get it, you only have 2, 3, 4 hours a week to work out, but these smaller back muscles (mid trap, rhomboids, rear delts) are essential for shoulder health. They allow for what’s called scapular (shoulder blade) stability.
3️⃣ ANTI-ROTATIONS: Trainers are constantly talking about “core” and developing a strong core. Well what the hell is that? It’s your ability to brace with your abdominals. Anti-rotations literally mean you are training yourself to be able to prevent rotation. This is a basic fundamental movement that translates all the way to the highest level of athleticism.
