Quote of the day

I’ve got a longer post in the works but today I wanted to take this detour and quote Mike Reinhold:

Selecting core exercises is typically more complicated than most people think. Sometimes I worry that too many people just try to create new exercises that look different and promote them as new “functional” techniques without any efficacy or research validation.

Too true, Mike. People have come up with a million and one different “core” exercises and in most cases have no idea how they all compare to one another. That’s why I am a big fan of Bret Contreras. He has recently done a bunch of personal EMG research, and while it isn’t peer reviewed, at least he is trying. I respect that.
