Reflecting on 2010 in 2020


Fads come and go, but the barbell remains the same. Respect it accordingly. – Jim Wendler

Remember how we laughed at people falling off Stability Balls trying to enhance proprioception? How much stability ball work are we doing now? In ten years the activation nonsense will be replaced with good old structural balance and warm-up. Corrective exercises will be one or two in a program eventually instead of the bulk of the training. While learning has some growing pains, wisdom tells us that conventional works and refinement is the name of the game. I suggest reading Jeremy Frisch’s blog and get back to physical education, good manual and physical therapy, and classic strength and conditioning.
