These effective transitions, though, were made by people who invested the time, energy, and patience to do it the right way. I know I can say that I am like a little kid on Christmas morning when it comes to helping out up-and-coming high school athletes with the college recruiting process, and I watch dozens of high school baseball games every spring. Is it really that heavy? The overwhelming majority of people who come through our doors with a history of pain are not just people who have dysfunction. That, to me, is why we made Assess and Correct.

Two Sunday Night Freebies Just a quick heads-up for my loyal weekend blog readers Check it out HERE. We talked about assessment, programming, whether squatting is "safe," my recent deadlifting specialization program, and our new product Assess and Correct.
My portion kicks in about halfway through the episode. Speaking of Assess and Correct, today is the last day for the early-bird price. Definitely check it out here. Not surprisingly, you actually see higher compressive forces and knee extensor moments with the back squat - which would imply that the front squat is a safer option for most folks.
There is more of a sitting back motion, and a bit less knee flexion, so more of the stress it put back on the posterior chain glutes, hamstrings than the quads. And, in reality, it probably helps to address some of their inefficiencies, as a good chunk of folks with knee issues tend to have weak posterior chains and be very quad-dominant. FYI, I covered front vs. When it comes to shoulder health, one thing folks miss out on all the time is the important role of the subscapularis, one of the four muscles of the rotator cuff.
This is a huge mistake if you want healthy shoulders. As the picture below shows, this sucker has a big cross-sectional area CSA. In fact, according to Bassett et al. As an interesting little tag-along to that fact, I recall reading that research has demonstrated that subscapularis cross-sectional area was the only factor that predicted powerlifting performance. In reality, in most folks, some subscapularis activation work during the warm-up should be done in conjunction with lengthening drills for the other internal rotators and posterior rotator cuff in order to establish a good shoulder groove before training.
We go into great detail in Assess and Correct with two of our progressions, but to get the ball rolling, try putting your hand behind your back as if handcuffed and then lifting off without extending your elbow or flexing your wrist. Have a great weekend! If you are located there or know someone good nearby, please email me ASAP at ec ericcressey. Pasteurization: Awesome or Complete Garbage?
Pierre is very well research and presented. Assess and Correct - Uh, duh. We introduced it earlier this week. What are you waiting for?
Are you ready to improve your performance in the gym, or on the field?
Or, at the very least, I look at a birthday as good blog content! Several of our high school athletes have gone off to college and been among the strongest if not the strongest in the weight room. I just love that they are informed consumers and advocates for themselves. We train over 30 players who are currently in the LS program, plus quite a few younger guys and LS alumni. Along those lines, LS junior Carl Anderson was batting.
This week, Greg focuses on improving your warm-ups. Integrate new movements into your warm-up first. A solid warm-up should do a few things for you; in a nutshell, it needs to prepare the body for the task at hand. At Cressey Performance, we do this via soft tissue work, mobility drills, and various low level activation exercises. Essentially, we are working on our weak points from a movement standpoint , so that we can solidify these new ranges with our strength training. Therefore, the warm up itself is a great spot to work on any new movements we want to externally load down the road.
