Let’s talk about today’s grunt work that’s scheduled. Something that best mimics the everyday work we have to do as a part of our lives. Yard work, cleaning and organizing, lifting your kids, or even taking out your air conditioners; you know basic things that are required to be a human being. But when we work on it in the gym, we do so in a controlled environment. We learn the right way to move heavy things while developing the strength and conditioning required to maintain good form. So the next time you have to move your wheel barrel full of stones you know that right way and have the strength to do it. Remember, brace your rib cage and tuck your shoulders back and down.
