When purchasing bodyweight training equipment, purchase a product that allows you to move in all three planes of motion, not just two. Rotational movement is key to proper bodyweight training exercises and real life movement and this can be accomplished with the CrossCore180® Rotational Bodyweight Trainer™ www.crosscore-usa.com
The CrossCore® Lat Row Progression, or “Reverse 180”, begins as a single arm row, then progresses into a single arm row with hip rotation and then finally finishes as the “Reverse 180”. Both the CrossCore® Lat Row Progression and Chest Press Progression can be done with varying degrees of hip rotation by keeping the feet pointed straight ahead as you rotate the hips or pivot the feet to keep the spine more properly aligned. But no matter your foot placement preference, you gotta PULL THE PIN!

One of the more annoying, yet common myths in the fitness world is that you can "spot train" muscles. Not only is it not possible, it shows how highly uneducated some people are with exercising, yet these people keep "educating" people on how to train. Under education is a huge problem in our industry, and spot training is the perfect example of that lack of knowledge. Targeting the "Lower" Abs or the "tear drop" in the Quads, are two of my favorite that people will try over and over to spot train.
You know what? For the most part I suck at balance, core work, and strength training. Any given day, if you walk in to my gym and see me train, you might agree.
Stumbling, losing my balance and uttering the occasional obscenity is common. Block your ears if you are precious.
However, I will not stand in front of a mirror and do biceps curls. Not my style. I will work at, even though I am not good at it. Can you say the same?
