Core First Approach to Exercise
by Peter Rumford, DPT, CSCS
-Most people move in ways that do not maximize their strength
-Access to strength is influenced by many factors such as mechanical capacity (mobility of the fascial system), neuromuscular control:(actual initiation, strength and endurance of the neuromuscular system), and motor control (the ability to learn and perform the skillful and efficient assumption, maintenance, modification, and control of voluntary movement patterns and postures).
-The opposite of accessing strength is inhibition. Inhibition occurs due to poor posture, poor mobility, pain, and other factors. Most people are inhibited.
-CoreFirst Strategies are a starting point for teaching clients how to access the strength they already possess.

The Kettlebell Snatch – Prerequisites, Technical Analysis, and Programming Considerations
by Tony Gracia
Objectives: The kettlebell snatch lovingly called by some the “Tsar of Kettlebell Lifts.” For those with the prerequisites to train snatches, the benefits are many, including building power in the hips and legs, a stronger upper back, shoulders, and grip, and unique endurance benefits not offered by many other training modalities. Viewers of this virtual presentation can expect to learn about prerequisites that should be in place before starting to practice snatches, teaching progressions to build up to snatching, identifying common technical errors in the snatch, and programming considerations for the exercise.
