Released Sunday, 2nd November 2014
Good episode? Give it some love!
You want to get stronger, or maybe you want to learn a new sport.

And you want to do it without getting injured.

You may have heard that you should visualize your body performing the exercise correctly.

Or, you’re told to focus on holding parts of your body in certain positions, like “keep your back flat,” and “push your knees out.”

Those seem like good recommendations at first, but they aren’t necessarily the best ways to get stronger or learn an exercise.

Research has shown that you can learn exercises faster and get stronger using a different method. In this video, personal trainer Randy Gruezo and I talk about the best ways to learn a new movement, or get better at a sport you already know.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a powerlifter, bodybuilderrunner, swimmer, or trapeze artist, you’ll get something out of this video.
