  1. Doing that last exercise from the plank, it definitely makes it harder, overall, but does that make it better for the back and glutes?

  2. Well, all I can give you for those booyah sticks is 10 dollars and a couple of bottles of viagra…
    Cuz, I still gotta frame them and besides, I'm taking all the risks

  3. CORE EVOLUTION EXERCISE MACHINE. VIDEO ON YOUTUBE. BEST LOWER BACK EXERCISER I'VE EVER FOUND. I BOUGHT ONE TEN YEARS AGO FOR $ 500.00 WORTH IT TO RELIEVE BACK PAIN. IT WORKED AFTER THE FIRST USE. REALLY AMAZING.

  4. Great preventatives, but maybe add to beware not to hyper extend elbow joints in bird dog. Hyper extension in joints stresses them, instead bring awareness to supporting muscles which strengthens and tones the muscles at the same time 😄

  5. I'm still on the fence whether these two are washed up actors on a homeshopping channel. They seem seem to have really committed to these characters.

  6. Hey guys, I once saw a high intensity core routine using resistance bands with wall anchors, but can no longer find it. Please repost it. Also a high intensity complete workout with bands and anchors. Thanks.

  7. McGill curl up has the head barely raised above the ground and one leg straight out.

    Nice beginner side plank btw, perfect execution. You have some work to do on your Sagittal strength ;-). And yes, the McGill big 3 will reduce pain for many hours afterward. Brad can try doing the plank on the wall, keep shoulders and hips locked together, if there is spine movement, brad will feel it the next day.

    Knees should be wider apart on the bird dog :-).

    Bob, hinge at the hips first (shoot rearward at the butt) then follow with knees, keep the knees over the heel.

  8. So my back pain once was from a fall… I did loads of exercise to help and it didn't get better. After seeing a therapist who said just to rest it got better very quick. Theory was it was overactive / spasming so needed R&R before any strengthening or stretching or massage.

  9. I love the content! Do you have any suggestions on breathing techniques during these exercises because sometimes that can make a big difference?

  10. It would be nice if you made cheat sheet cards with diagrams for all the different exercises for the different problems. I will forget by the time I am ready to do those exercises again. What do you think about that?

  11. As others have already noted these exercises were first grouped together by Dr. Stuart McGill. You guys should have credited him on this!! I don't know if I can post links here but McGill did a video for the New York Times a while back where he demonstrates the three exercises as well as one other using an exercise ball. I healed a bad herniated disc several years ago by adhering to the McGill regimen. His book "Back Mechanic" is very useful and gives alternatives to the plank and bird dog for those how have shoulder or knee problems. Bob's form on the crunch is poor and the position is wrong. One leg is out, one is bent and you alternate them between the reps. Criticism aside these are probably the three top exercises one can do.

  12. I have injured my back to the point that I could not get out of bed. The VA nurse wants me to go to PT without getting a MRI to see what is going on. She always wants to do x-rays.

  13. Hello sir I 've CERVICAL spinenal pelvic pain..burning sensation during pain shoulder hand ad legs .. plzz your advice needed. Ur number or Email..warm Regards
