  1. Jeff, I seem to get a lot of pressure and pain through the foot & ankle that is balancing my weight doing the 2nd excercise. Holding the band, lifting one foot (one towards the anchoring point) off the floor and pushing my arms out.
    Is there any way I can avoid that pain or improve my balance in the first place?

  6. Ever seen anyone with a weak trans actually benefit from this? …. Actually see a physical change as in the core (abdomen cavity) pull in.
    I only ask as i see many trainers on youtube advocate exercises that they have learnt but never had to use themselves.
    My core is weak especially my trans, i have back ache and poss some sciatica now.. Im following moves from youtube and your channel.. But not getting results.
    Im not obese im actually quite slim with just a little extra weight….. But i find many physio like exercises dont work… Never actually seem to deliver and i have had tutorials from physios personally.
    I wonder half the time are exercises taught simly as trainers have been told they work but never experienced them themselves?.
    Hope this doesnt sound disrespectful its not meant too.

  7. Do you create personal workout routines for individuals with not so typical circumstances? I have had rheumatoid arthritis since I was 14. And my bodies chain vectors do not set up the right way

  8. Can u do the female training please. The ppl you have on that side are like everyone else. I want a female YOU. I want the science, the experience and clear knowledge. I keep going there to learn things specifically for my physiology but I'm never satisfied so, I come back to you. Please help. Men get a lot. We need you!!!!

  9. Nice one. Using all your routines to stabilise and build hips, core, lower back. Suffered recently as right iliotibial band locked out alongside pain in left hip – imbalances elsewhere?

  10. I really value all your advice. I have retrospondylolisthesis of the lumbar spine and I’m always looking for ways to improve my core/pelvic stability and to get my gluteus to fire. This exercise has helped! Ty

  11. When I try this, there is not that much movement in my pelvis, I don't feel my gluteus medius, and it feels more like my back is rotating than actually going up and down. I do really focus on the relaxing, and then pulling back up. But with you it looks like there is a differential of like 10 cm. With me, not even half. I do know my one leg is a bit shorter than the other. Does this matter? It looks so darned easy, but I just cannot get it right and because of that, frankly, it's annoying like hell.
