This week’sExercise of the Weekis the Box Squat. This is a great alternative to a regular squat as it allows your body to recover a little faster and you can typically do more weight with it. I would use this version of the squat in addition to a regular parallel squat.

As I continue to learn more and more about the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and all of its benefits, you can expect to see more videos of these types of exercises. FMS calls these correctives as they are intended to help address stability and mobility issues that appear in the Functional Movement Screen.

This week’s Exercise of the Week is actually a couple of exercises. If you’re looking for something simple to do at home or on the road, this is for you. The equipment needed for these can be picked up at KMart or similar places for $10-15.

Hello again! This week’s Exercise of the Week will introduce a new piece of equipment here at Athletic Training and Fitness. This piece of equipment is found in a lot of gyms, but I know in ours it rarely gets used. This one is great for the hips and the groin with the lateral movement you’re about to see. Definitely expect to see more use of the slide-board in the near future!

This week’s Exercise of the Week is going to explore the hips. This is coming from Mike Reinold’s blog. Enjoy!

This week’s Exercise of the Week is bringing back the TRX Suspension Trainer. This series of exercises are for the arms and more particularly geared toward the rotator cuff. They are commonly performed using Theraband or light dumbbells, but this is another way of doing them!
