Does your back hurt so bad after deadlifting heavy that you can barely stand up straight? Do you worry about orthopedic safety during CrossFit? If you answered yes, then you need this email. This week I teach you the most critical skill of all: how to brace your spine under load. If you aren’t doing this when you lift, run, or stand in line at Starbucks, you are f-ing up. The good news is that it’s an easy 3 step process to fix. Check out the video above and stop risking injury during lifting.
(P.S. YES, you need to do this consciously. Yes, it’s weird, and yes, it’s a pain in the bum, but guess what intentionality while moving is essential. If you can’t keep braced while moving, the load is too heavy, or the speed is too fast.)
