I’m a big picture thinking body engineer. I help people get strong and mobile (and sometimes out of pain) through simple and easy to implement exercises, most of which fix problems instantly and some through progression. Most of my work is on amazon. My clients range from the end user to physical therapists to older athletes to weekend warriors to sports scientists. Last month I helped an M.S. in sports medicine who heads up a big firm avoid knee surgery with one easy exercise.
My work starts with the big picture. We have lost our ability to look at the book picture. My strength books are big picture, my hip and shoulder corrective books are big picture. For example in my hip book I step back and ask “what are ALL of the ways we move our hip?” There are 10. So instead of having some esoteric corrective system that favors one movement and ignores others, I educate on all of the movements of the hip. This is the problem with mantras like “movement” and “strength,” they are so general that they say everything and nothing at the same time. My work is to make some sense out of “movement.” So instead of going around talking about “movement,” I go around and say “these are the 10 ways your hip moves.” When people do them, they feel muscles going on (and off) that haven’t gone on (or off) in a long time. Some even 20 or 30 years.
That is concrete. That means something. It is easy to understand and easy to do. If you are aware of the 10 movements of your hip and know the exercises to use, you can see the big picture and more easily assess and fix muscle imbalances. What we really lack is a clear teaching on the body.
I came up with this big picture idea because every corrective system I used was helpless in correcting a really, really bad hip and knee problem that I had. I had excruciating knee pain and couldn’t walk down my stairs at home. I had to walk down sideways. It was so frustrating. It sucked because I didn’t know why my hip and knee all of the sudden started doing this. I literally went from being able to do rock bottom one legged bodyweight squats on my left side one day to bad knee pain the next day. This dragged on for over a year. I was friends with all these corrective experts whose tool were useless in solving my particular problem (it was a rotator imbalance.).
