On Monday, I have a post about the whole “Death of the Squat” controversy that has taken the strength and conditioning industry by storm. I decided to delay that post until Monday because I recently came across an awesome video from my friend, colleague, and mentor Eric Cressey.
I’ve learned a lot from Eric’s approach to training, as he incorporates a lot of functional anatomy and lessons from physical therapy into his approach. Whether you think people should be squatting or not, this video is worth checking out. He walks through several mobility drills that are my “go-to” exercises for opening up the hips of our hockey players. The video is titled something like “7 Ways to Fix Your Squat”, but it should really be called “7 Awesome Hip Mobility Exercises for Athletes and General Fitness Enthusiasts”. Check it out at the link below:

To your success,
P.S. When you go to the link above, you will be asked to enter your name and email address to access the video. Don’t let this turn you off. Eric does this because he has other great videos to come and he wants to make sure he can notify you of their release. Gotta love exclusive content!
