Nice find, Garrett!!

My clients are always baffled when I tell them to STOP doing all isolated abdominal work. They need to learn that it creates MORE problems. Isolated abs are dumb abs. They'll never see them unless they get their bodyfat down anyway!

Stabilizing while doing dynamic movements like squats, deadlifts, power cleans, DB snatches, etc. gives the abs and low back plenty of work. Then we stretch, stretch, stretch the out of whack muscles to restore balance so natural posture can become... natural!

Gokhale's book is added to my Amazon wish list. Santa, are you listening?

I'm looking forward to adding her tools to my tool chest!!
Be well,
