0

Every trainer in the world is writing about at-home workouts right now, so let’s be trendy. Preface I realize there is a lot of controversy around this issue, and that controversy is only growing.

Particularly with obesity, I’m not sure this is well considered in the context of the toll it places on society. This has never been made more obvious than with the coronavirus outbreak.

November 25, 2019

0

We’ve talked a lot about recovering from an anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. We haven’t talked a ton about getting ready for it. I certainly wouldn’t say the prehab is as important as the rehab, but the better you go in, the better you come out. -> This is why all surgeries have worse success rates […]
