How To Workout, Keep The Training Wheels Off.

There is no such thing as a bad exercise, just a bad way of performing it. — Mel Siff.

Couldn’t agree with this more. People must be appropriately challeged in the gym, their brains rewired by being fed rocking, rolling, crawling patterns, along with primal patterns of push, pull bend, squat twist, lunge, built to be bullet proof with strength in these movement patterns along with strength in the frontal and transverse planes where most injuries occur.

I do not put training wheels on people when working with them, the nervous system and stability is not challenged in supported exercises. If one does not have the strength or neurological control in a exercise, descend it, while they still get that motor learning, then load them appropriately as they become proficient in it.

Putting them in a supported environment to.build strength and leaving them there is like learning how to ride a bike well achieving supreme confidence with training wheels on but never taking them off. They don’t don’t have the ability to ride.

I was taught if you can’t you must. Descend only to be able to ascend the exercise movement. Motor learning, strength, stability, is achieved.

We were once bullet proof in primal and pioneer days. There were NO weak links in the body grown from sedentary habits.

We are teaching people to be primal again, feeding their brains through movements the brain once was hard wired well with.

I do not say a movement is bad for a person, particularly when it’s a natural primal pattern. Because that’s our job as a trainer to strengthen their weakness within that movement to build them into that movement.

Putting training wheels on people building strength in such exercises does not accomplish this with those red flags in those uncontrolled ranges with weakness with them still present.
