No, you shouldn’t be deadlifting like power lifters (i.e., many heavy sets), nor like the CrossFitters who commonly do many high-rep sets with a more moderate load.The protocol I recommend, after a light warm-up set of six reps, is three sets of deadlifts with reps of five, four, and three per set.

  • Thank you so much for these videos! What is the spinal condition that Brad has that he should not be doing some of the exercises? I know about the spinal stenosis, but he mentioned another condition that I am not familiar with. I want to check my MRI to make sure that I am not doing exercises that will make my back worse. I know that I have bulging disks, spinal stenosis, bone spurs and scoliosis.

  • I’ve searched all your videos for L1 good exercises and strengthening. This is good but I’m hoping for more.

    I have stretching for the lower lumber that requires the foot be placed high like the back of a couch then stretch to touch that toe. Then shift so I’m facing away 45 degrees the foot is now laying on its side then stretch to the toe again (up over my head as far as I can get to the foot.) Without shifting reach down to the floor. This last one stretches the nerve bundle that goes down my leg eliminating the pain from nerve damage from a car accident.

    Do you have anything like that for L1?

  • Bob and Brad I have clavicle misalignment/instability, i believe this is the cause of my suspected TOS (self diagnosed at the moment, awaiting mri), do you have a video teaching how to correct clavicle alignment? It feels like my shoulder should sit about an inch or 2 further outwards to become symmetrical with my other side, i would greatly appreciate any help you can give, best regards:)

  • Where I can find this music?
    Or other similar music?
    Pleased I love strong by zumba and the music is very motivating for me
    Thank you so much!

  • Can you make a postpartum exercise/stretching video. I just had a baby last week and as soon as the doctor says I’m ready I’m gonna workout.
    Love your channel bob and brad

  • Many years ago, I had an old guy cycling mentor (retired chiro doc) that I used to do long weekend rides with. He taught me a series of eight moves — all variations of these. At that time, I was attempting to comfortably reach the double century (200 miler) distance, but my body (neck, shoulders, back, core) would all fail me around the 120 mile mark. After about a month of doing this daily routine, my core strengthened considerably, and I got to the point where I was able to ride a 200 mile event every month, sometimes two per month always finishing strong and ache-free. Cycling does nothing for the core, so these “floor moves” really make up the difference between, finishing slow and weak vs fast and strong. I start every day with my “8 point routine”, and have never had a back ache.

  • Sir please make a video on very old people on how they strengthen their core if they are not able to do hard exercise only with simple exercise

  • Why bother to put this vision in your head? Work Outs needed not be complicated or difficult. Some guys just need an excuse to spend more time in the gym and as far away from their wives, who does have what they truly need.

  • I have degenerating disk and get my nerves burnt twice a year. My understanding is the facet joints are moving causing arthritis and pain. Surgery doesn’t seem to be an option. Is there any exercise to help this condition?

  • Nice quick ab workout. The only thing I would have liked added was a sound at the end of each 30 second interval, but good otherwise.
