use low back in every exercise

Quick…I’ve got a one question quiz for you.  What do you think the answer to this unfinished statement is? “Increase your Strength in EVERY LIFT by using…”
a.)  Lifting Straps
b.)  Illegal Steroids
c.)  Cheating and Momentum
d.)  A Strong Spotter
It’s a tough one huh?
low back strength secretWhy?  

Because they ALL would help, but of course NONE of them would be productive to you actually getting any MEANINGFUL HEALTHY LONG TERM gains.
Increase your Strength in EVERY LIFT by using…YOUR LOW BACK! The fact that the answer can impact virtually every exercise you do (regardless of whether it’s an upper body or lower body exercise) just shows you how important it really is. Not to mention, without it, you might be missing not just an opportunity to be as strong and built as possible…but as pain free too!
If you take just one thing away from this video I want it to be this…MUSCLES HAVE VERY SPECIFIC WAYS THAT THEY PREFER TO WORK TOGETHER! Realizing this and the fact that muscles influence joints, joints influence leverage, and leverage can make a lift feel either very easy or very difficult (depending on how much you have) can unlock a WHOLE new level of expectations for what kind of gains you expect to see from working out.

If you find this useful and want to see what a complete program of true, real-world scientific strength principles (laid out in a workout by workout fashion) could do for your ability to build a lean, ripped and athletic body in just 90 days…then I invite you to join “TEAM ATHLEAN” today and get ATHLEAN-X!

PS.  As a watcher of my videos, it’s these kind of tips that I’m told have been most impactful on helping others like you to make such incredible progress on ATHLEAN-X.  For that reason, I went in and shot ALL NEW walkthrough videos for every one of the 60 workouts in the program that are now available in the ATHLEAN-X ALL-STAR program.  It was the perfect opportunity for me to get many many more of these tips into every exercise!!  I think you’re going to love them!
