The Cert, Baby!

I got this in the mail yesterday. They got it to me pretty quickly. I was very happy to see it. Now all I have to do is find some people to train. I’ve been doing some home sessions with some friends and I think they’ve gone well. One of them has had a trainer in the past, but she says that she likes what we are doing much better. I like hearing that. One of the things that I have them doing is a mobility style warm-up. I have really seen the value in this and I give full thanks to Eric Cressey for it. To me it’s really a part of the workout, just as important as any one exercise. I think this is especially true for people who don’t have a whole lot of workout experience. Actually, when I think about it, calling it a warm-up is probably not the best way to refer to it. That gives it a bit of an optional kind of tone. I should just call it a mobility circuit. I like that. I have been putting an extra emphasis on X-band walks and either bird-dogs or supine hip-extensions with them. I think it’s really important to wake up those glutes. It really seems to me that the glutes are the most neglected muscle in the body. I might be wrong, but I know, in relation to these two things, that since I have concentrated on glute function and have been doing this style of warm-up myself, I have felt great and seem to be moving around much better.
So anyway, there you go. A rambling, poorly gramaticized (is that a word?) post. I hope you’ve enjoyed it. Talk to you soon.
