So, this post was originally published on my LinkedIn page, but I think that it is still very relevant to share with you here. Why? Because this time of year is tough – many New Year’s Resolutions are fading because we’re getting back into our old lives, that is, our post holiday lives. And for many people, that means that they are having to make some very tough decisions on how they spend their time… […]

It’s no secret that this time of year brings in a lot of new faces in any gym. One of the most common New Year’s Resolutions is to join a gym. Memberships spike across the country.

Welcome back, Motus crew. I’m back from summer vacation and the blogs are rolling out once again. So, let’s get back into the swing of things. I have an anecdote for you. Let’s talk about deadlifting. For those of you that follow Motus, you’ll know that I’m not exactly a huge fan of PR’s (personal records) – maximal lifts. Lifting heavy enough that you’re bumping up against 1 or 2 rep maximums means that the risk […]
