  • Love being back in a groove with Technique Tuesdays! Hope you guys enjoy the video don’t forget to hit the like/subscribe button if you found it helpful! Peace!

  • It was a running dare to take the DS cover during OSUT. After graduation, some people were leaving with family and some were being loaded on half tracks for the bus. In all the commotion I saw a DS cover sitting on the stage and I was about to take it. But I didnt, probably for the best.

  • Let’s get real ppl. Ppl who make up these training video’s have nothing to do with what goes on with the client.
    Just sit behind their desks without a clue what goes on with these ppl.
    It’s a real world out there by and clients don’t act like there videos.
    We need more upper staff to get on the floor and see what goes on….
    I guarantee they’ll throw these training video’ out the window…
    * A calm loving attitude is the basic tool.

  • Fr tho, Im at the point where I dont like cake anyway. Ice cream I’ll eat every once in a while or when im in a really good mood for it, otherwise i dont

  • My question is, are there positions that provide relief, eg while lying down, that are in reality harmful in the long run?

    Also, are back braces a viable option?

  • When walking I endure extreme pain and I know you say “no” cycling, but I experience absolutely no pain or discomfort when on a stationary bike at the gym. I do make sure I am sitting up with no hunched back. I would be interested on what ab exercises I could do that will not aggravate my sciatica?

  • I have sciatic pain bcz of lumber herniated disks..its been a year now since I got the injury..I still suffer from sciatic pain from time to time..can I do these exercises? Will it b safe for me to try these?


  • Leaving September 24th to Fort Benning as a 25Q active duty, just wanted to say thank you for all this information you provide and thanks for serving man!

  • my exhale duration is short.n i feel my lower abdomen contracting at the end of it bearing down or tva contraction happening??coz tva happens at end of exhalation ideally.can u pls explain.whther its problametic or something else

  • My mother in law argues when I help her with her clothes, I just ignore it and calmly explained to her that I’m helping her and take over and she eventually allows me to help

  • Another common error of the rollout is not having a hollow body, if you don’t have a hollow body your lower back will tense to make up for your weak abdominals, and you will cramp so badly. Happened when I first started training and took really conscious effort to crunch/hollow during the entire rollout.

  • The second act, is sort of unrealistic responsed from dementia patient.Dementia patients don’t want to hear you saying,”your helping them”that word can trigger aggitations sometimes.

  • My drill sergeant stopped me and asked where’s your battle buddy, and I told him…I don’t know, he screamed at me and told me to go back and get him. Those drill sergeants take that battle buddy stuff seriously.

  • Talk about Yoga and sciatica. I’m did a lot of yoga and not sure if it’s related but I ended up with badly herniated disk that required surgery. I’m doing more mat palates now less yoga. I’m 65, but very fit.

  • Dear I m from Bangladesh…
    Take love….
    I’m 18 years old nd my weight 75kg….I’m so much depressed
    How can I loose my weight please help…..

  • I appreciate your videos. I’m trying to get back into the gym to rehabilitate whatever is wrong with my back that causes sciatic notch pain that extends into my leg. I have parasthesia and partial paralysis in the effected leg which one doctor believes is due to something irritating my L4/S3. I haven’t been able to move the last three toes on my left foot for two years and with no diagnosis and nothing showing up upon MRI’S, I’m kind of on my own with physical therapy and exercise. I tried physical therapy but what they had me doing made the pain and symptoms worse. I’m going to watch all of your videos on sciatica because it’s the closest thing to my specific issue in order to try and learn as much as possible so as to not injure myself further. Thank you for posting these!!!!

  • The guy on the right is not telling the truth and he has pain because he adjust himself sitting alot and he wont really look into the camera. You two need to casually be in a confortable. Chair. In otherwards practice what you preach good luck. Just suggestions. Your tensions radiate from you 2. Relax and do this in a chair or couch. An environment that people can daily relate to.

  • Amazing video. There are two people I wanna meet in my life time, Gary V. & you sir. If you’re ever back in Jacksonville, FL I’d be down to have a quick bite or some coffee and pick your brain. Thank you for the videos/content.

  • I always feel pain in my lower back, even when I did these exercises. I feel like I am going to have abs in my lower back not my stomach����������….HELP ME!!!!

  • I was skeptic about NextLevelDiet because I thought that I would have to eat only broccoli to lose weight. I am eating only food I like and still losing weight

  • As both a Certified Ergonomist and Board Certified Physiotherapist I have personally used and prescribe the #MacKenzie Technique for many a client and patient. This is one of the better You Tube Videos which explains this very well. JESleeth Optimal Performance Consultants Inc

  • Well I still feel everything on my neck. When lifting up my legs, I‘m feeling everything on my legs and lower back. I think my back is fked up. What should I do

  • i have to take care of my mother who have dementia and my brother who had hemorrhagic stroke while also working at home. My mom keep telling me that she wants to go home to my grandmother place. eventhough my grandmother passed away when i was junior high and her house already gone. She insisted to the point that she attemped to runaway several times by climbing my house gate. My mom also thinks persons on tv and pictures alive. I often get super stressed and frustrated that i keep yelling and eventually crying.

  • I feel like jeff is the kind of guy to push a button not once but ten times, each press on a different finger, to ensure perfect muscle proportion on each finger.

  • Plz do a vid on partial squats (and partial in general) in terms of safety (partials when you don’t break the eccentric phase with the concentric) and compare them to when u do break the phases.

  • My mother was easy to care for, except when she would have a bimonthly episode of frantic anxiety that would last 36 hours non-stop. She would look for lost objects and demand me to help her find them. Ten minutes later she’d be searching for the same objects again.

    Meds didn’t help her with this and after the 36 hours, she would fall asleep exhausted for 3 days, just getting up on her own to use the bathroom and to eat and drink a little. By then I really needed that break.

    She had a large walk in closet stuffed with clothes many dating back to the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. I would remove one or two sets of clothing and see if she noticed it. If she didn’t notice it I put it in a bag to take to Goodwill. It took several months but I got her clothing collection down to a more manageable amount.

    5 years I cared for her and my father. It was a good experience and healing time for all of us, and I would be willing to do it all over again.

  • Omg I love you so much I’ve been looking for a video like this. You pointed out everything I’ve been doing wrong and I can’t wait to fix it. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! ❤️❤️❤️

  • It’s an unending circle with no end. All these advices multiply with zero while dealing with actual patient. You are bound to lose your temper, say things you don’t want to say, do things you don’t want to do despite regretting them later. May those who take care of these patients be blessed. It is one hell of a tough job; keeping them alive with no hope of recovery.

  • My grandpa had dementia and was very stubborn and agitated lol, it was hard for awhile but it got easier with time. He passed away on my birthday a few days ago and its a weird feeling knowing that the responsibility you had one day completely vanished the next. I miss him alot but I just miss having someone to care for and love you know? I guess if I ever got the opportunity to take care of an elder again I would and hopefully would learn from this experience and do better than I did before because I know I didn’t do everything right but I did the best I could and am very thankful for the opportunity to care for an elder, my elder.

  • Are you shitting me? I WISH this was true! I am ALWAYS calm, collected, gentle, and patient when communicating with my MIL. That’s my nature in general. But it matters not, she’ is always combative, aggressive, and resistant. None of the advice I’ve gotten from the doctors, support groups, or online helps.

  • DON’Ts
    1. Don’t go anywhere without a battle buddy
    2. Don’t be anywhere as a group with different uniforms or equipment, agree on one thing even if it’s the wrong stuff
    3. Don’t forget peanut butter sandwich or pbj for some extra calorie, energize bro
    4. Don’t touch a Drill Sergeant’s head gear
    5. Don’t call a DS by their first name or last name. Just Drill Sergeant.
    6. Don’t grab a cake, don’t grab an ice cream
    7. Don’t fall asleep
    8. Don’t smile when a DS is talking or yelling at you
    9. Don’t ask for mail every single day, make it easy for your leader and platoon, you’ll get mail when you have mail
    1. Ask a DS if you have questions, ask again if you don’t understand, but keep the asking minimal
    2. Stretch the night before a PT

  • I tried to make my own diet, but it didn’t work. I went to Next Level Diet and let them create diet plan for me. I am delighted with the result

  • No bending picking up trash, no weeding the garden, no squatting floor scrubbing, no wiping the floor. No bike riding. No hiking up the Rockies. No plane travel. No vacuuming. No mowing. They are all bad for my sciatica pain and how it started.

  • Your core is your bridge from your lower body strength to your upper body strength


    Hollow Body
    Side Plank ( both sides )
    Pallof Press

  • One thing my recruiter didn’t tell me at all when applying for the army. The army has a 8 year obligation to serve. So if you wanted to leave when your contract ends, you can’t till the 8 years are up. Didn’t find that out till MEPS enlistment. Just a heads up for people thinking that you can leave as soon as the 3 or 4 years are up.

  • Also a tip for not smilin’ is bite the insides of ur cheek.
    1) It forces ur body to not smile, even when ur brain is like “Dont smile dont smile dont smile” which sometimes MAKES u smile more
    2) U look innocent and u wont get smoked

  • Why is when you’re doing something wrong you have the hat backwards, black bandana, headphones & dog tags? Why couldn’t you have just shown the incorrect way with the same attire you had on for the correct way??

  • There was the sharp pain down the right leg, for about 2 years I’d have to literally, roll out of a sitting/lying position and then hobble until it “loosens” up. Nevertheless, I kept using the stairs at home, generally kept moving. Now, I know for sure it’s the low back causing all this misery have to be so focused on posture. Things, others take for granted, in action/stretches in daily motions stresses me up but people don’t understand the pain, because they don’t ask!lol!

  • I hate in dementia training everyone talks about clothing like does it really matter if someone’s clothes don’t match as long as they are happy like do you really care if people think it looks weird does it really make a big difference to the person’s day

  • I Can’t do this with my Gram anymore yet she cries and dreads a home but is very combative and downright cruel. I came here to help her but now I feel like it’s driving me to point of insanity. ��

  • 4:48 Is an RDL (Romanian Deadlift). Good Mornings are with the bar on the shoulders like you’re going to squat, but instead of squating down with your knees you are to have your pelvis tilted forward, core engaged, knees slightly bent, and bending at the hips, working on your hip hinge movements. And when squatting you’re to have your pelvis tilted forward with the core engaged, not with your back curved and butt sticking out like how it kind of looked like you were doing. That would hurt anyone on it’s own

  • My mother has all the symptoms of dementia and is also quite deaf and unable to accept that she even needs a health check or to see a doctor about her hearing, it’s almost as if she is getting a kick out of it all being so awkward and laughs as she goes away after ripping my head off for offering help or for doing things that in all fairness she hasn’t been doing for a while anyway. I’d cook good food for herself and my father and he is fine with this yet he has to take her food upstairs to her saying he made it so she doesn’t get angry that I’m about and doing the things she should be doing herself, my mother has suffered with anxiety and depression for all of my life (44 years) and she is always in an angry state and if I try to talk to her I have to raise my voice which in turn also riles her up to the point she growls and snarls at me and also she creates foul stories about neighbours and strangers that pass the house sometimes shouting out of the window at them and accusing them of prostitution and foul play with children and others. She tries to leave the house in the middle of the night and I had to take her door keys away from her so she doesn’t get away and become harmed late at night and my father sleeps downstairs in constant vigilance of her actions. She has alienated all of my siblings and other family members with fights over my lifetime and it’s only now she has lost the energy to be violent yet when she does go nuts she is very agressive and will lash out at anyone and everyone. This is not an easy thing for anyone to deal with and it’s so so hard for anyone to get through to someone who has been suffering it for many decades and any mention of seeing the doctor or getting help or a carer is nastily rejected, I have taken this out of her hands and have called in the doctor and other services because she is dangerous in the kitchen causing stomach upsets and the food she tried to prepare is left out and spoils, she uses her hands on fresh uncooked meats and then handles cooked meats and doesn’t think about washing her hands as she goes or cleaning up after herself and this is very unsafe for her and my father. This kind of video is great for those who have only recently started with the symptoms but for us that have lived with this and have had to put up with rejection of help for many years it is a nightmare to even hold a calm conversation about anything and the stories are as dangerous with the state of society as it is it seems many people that seem to not understand mental health issues and can react badly are also waiting for their own diagnosis. Please stay safe and well and if in doubt call in some real help and press to be heard for the best interest of your loved ones and yourselves because many of the people affected are beaten down family members who have shielded the poorly ones already too long and they then become part of the problem themselves and this affects their own lives and social expressions. Love to all, bless those who harm us and pray we’ll all make sense of it all in the end before it’s the end.

  • I’m able to hold a plank for 30 minutes, yet any sit up or leg lifting exercises put a decent amount of core on my lower back.

    My form is nearly perfect (before covid I did a lot of ab exercises so I know how to do them correctly) but my back has a natural arch in it. I can’t tell if my core is too weak or if it’s the arch in my back causing me problems.

  • Battle buddys woot:) I’m exited I take my Asvab 7/23/20 been busting my ass. working out run mind body and soul possibly ready i got this.

  • I LOST 40lbs!!! You ask how? I visited website called NextLevelDiet. I selected only food I like and they provided me with DIET MEAL PLAN, TRAINING PLAN, FITNESS TIPS and HEALTHY RECIPES

  • No wonder sprinting at top speed,Made my sciatica want to kill me.I couldnt help it being born a sprinter.Lol!But yeah,I paid a terrible price the next day.OmG!!!I am healing now.With my background as a trainer,athlete,and physical therapy.Ive helped a lot of people out with their back injuries.I use to do 15mph like nothing.I did do 13mph to test myself.I take it slow now.Its a guarantee.i get stronger.When I get off treadmill,strengthen myself.The 2nd time back on is far better.

  • Having someone follow you around isn’t weird. It’s kinda like when your little when your parents have you go with your cousin or friend to the bathroom or where ever. To this day (now that I’m in the habit of going to certain places with someone) I can’t really go alone. XD But yes it would be weird for me at first if I was going somewhere with a stranger. XD

  • Darling, your midriff, cleavage, and perky bottom do not disappoint. You have such a great body! All the same, I wish you would show off your features the way your competitors do in workout videos such as:

    Please, darling, before age betrays those curves of yours, do a “Thong Bikini Beach Workout” video? Please?

  • Food= healthy life protein and potassium= less muscle soreness I was at a military high school for 6 months at 2,000 calorie food becomes meaning of life first hour out of the program I ate a 3,500 calorie meal

  • I could probably do some of these. I don’t know about the plank, my hips are so bad. That looks a little painful, honestly. I may have to try the “ support “ option, with the leg over.

    Thanks for posting, this could be quite beneficial. I had a baby 14 years ago and I still struggle to get that weight off! ( Even my parents tell me I’m overweight… it’s so upsetting.. )

  • First off thank you guys for all this valuable information. I have a big problem that no one has been able to help me with for almost 15 years.
    I have three severely herniated/degenerated disc’s from L2 through L5, and a hairline fractured SI joint. I have numbness in my heels that comes and goes associated with pain and tingling behind my calf muscle. I’ve been through PT for 15 years, massage, chiropractic therapy etc. Since 2003 surgeons have told me that my only solution is a fusion…I don’t believe them because I do have days where the pain is minimal, though most days the pain is severe and limiting my lifestyle. I have six active kids and three busy companies, but I live in pain and just deal with it. Curling up in a fetal position is usually my only relief, though from the sound of it from you guys that only offers a momentary solution.
    I don’t want irreversible surgery, I guess I’m not sure what my question is, but I’m just dying for some relief other than pain meds!

  • You got amazing body over the years mam ��@joannasohofficial I’m ur constant follower from last 3 years except six months gap in last year I do follow ur exercise routine but I didn’t got sufficient improvement compared to u…I’ve pcos so it’s bit difficult to get into shape..

  • Many times a UTI will cause the same responses. Make sure you consult their doctor. Take a deep breath and remain calm, it’s not personal; it’s simply their “reality”.
