    By JoAnna Dettmann | In Blog | on May 4, 2020

    One of my favorite variations to the hip hinge. Here’s where I often utilize this movement. 1.) Building volume in a particular range. Have an issue with the conventional deadlift? Use the RDL! 2.) Reinitiating hinge patterns to a program. Since the RDL is less range of motion, it is often an excellent starting point of […]

    By JoAnna Dettmann | In Blog | on April 29, 2020

    I was very skeptical 2 years ago when I started my intermittent fasting journey. I spent about a month researching and understanding the science behind IF. The 5 small meals a day was always the go to for trying to get shredded. Now I have a different plan. What is IF? With intermittent fasting, you […]

  • COVID-19: Is it time to start opening up?

    By Todd Seabaugh | In Blog, Health & Wellness | on April 28, 2020

  • Exercise and immune system performance

    By Todd Seabaugh | In Blog, Health & Wellness | on April 23, 2020

    Staying on my theme for the week, I found another interesting article on the relationship of exercise and the immune system’s infection fighting capabilities. Like most everything, there is value in exercise to a point, then diminishing to the point of negative returns. Like alcoholic drink consumption, there is evidence that moderate drinking can be […]

  • We hope everyone has been hanging in there as best as you and your family can through such a unique time. We are no longer going to call it a “difficult time” (not because isn’t) but we want to change our verbiage to “unique” time. Solely because it seems more positive. And let’s be honest […]
