Yardstick Conditioning

This is a concept I first learned from Bud Jeffries. I believe he outlined it inside of Twisted Conditioning 2, though I could have that mixed up.

Movement Feedback Systems

Isn’t it funny where the ‘AHA’ moments strike? A couple months back, I was at a marketing seminar. The speaker was talking about feedback systems, specifically his hobby of creating audio speakers, and how this related to marketing.

A Basic Bodyweight Workout Plan

Shane asks about a basic bodyweight workout plan: “What is a good place to start a body weight workout? I cannot do strict military pull ups, but have always wanted to.

5 Minute Intuitive Mobility Routine

I figured it might be helpful to share an example of me doing an “intuitive mobility” routine. By intuitive, I mean that I’m not just doing the 3 circles per joint, then move onto the next. I start with a movement, feel into my body, and let that guide what I do next. In doing […]

Death by All Causes

Are you familiar with the term “death from all causes,” sometimes also called “all-cause mortality?” In longitudinal research, that is studies where the same data is collected from the same people over long periods of time, this is something that can often be found.
