Video #4: Face Pull

With this series of short videos, I’m going to help you avoid a whole bunch of S. H. I. T.

Some exercises remain very controversial. Most people fall into the “you can” or “you cannot” do Upright Rows camp. I think you should NEVER do Upright Rows. The problem with Upright Rows is that no matter how you lift, you’re putting your shoulders into impingement.

I have a safer way to work the traps: Face Pulls. As with the Row (see video 3 of 12), you start from the back, then follow through with the elbows (not elbows, back).

Avoid fish oil supplements

I don’t generally promote supplements. Most of them play to specific, isolated points of medical research to serve as a magic pill. One remarkable example of this is fish oil.
