SHUT UP AND WORK

Shut up and work. If you want to be successful in anything, start with being great at the basics. One of the most basic things in anything is how hard you work. You are in complete control of what you put into anything and everything.

Un-bastardizing balance work PART 2. A big part of balance comes from the core's ability to hold strong while the arms and/or legs do work. For better balance, it's important to train the core to communicate with the arms and legs during activity.

SINGLE LEG DEADLIFT WITH MED BALL ROTATIONS

Today's Edge:
Stop bastardizing balance work. I roll my eyes when I see people attempting to train for better balance as if they're a seal in a circus. This isn't training it's shenanigans. Balance comes from strength. You're better off training for balance on a stable surface and using external forces, actions, or tools to challenge your neuromuscular system.

GET RID OF TIGHT HIPS AND HAMSTRINGS WITH ONE AMAZING STRETCH

As the head strength & conditioning coach for the LA Lakers, part of my job is to make sure players stretch and warm-up correctly before they lift or play. This can be a challenge given that when players aren't playing in games/practices there's a great chance that they are sitting on a bus or airplane.
