YouTube Update for Hips(ters)

Morning, Folks! We’re back on the YouTube Channel today, this time with a new routine to develop some strength in your hips. This routine has proven particularly effective for treating hip pain, as well as knee pain and the dreaded low back pain. We recommend you give this routine a whirl two times weekly, preferably after your main working sets on training days or on your recovery days. Enjoy!

Back at it

Morning, Folks! So it turns out that this whole building a garage gym deal takes a bit more time and effort than we had originally anticipated. We appreciate you guys who have continued to check in here on the blog, our YouTube Channel, and our social media outlets. You all are what drive this ship forward.

Towards that end, we’re back on the Restore/Thrive YouTube channel today, this time talking about how to select the best warm-up and cool-down activities if you’re trying to improve you mobility along the way. Give it a look and have a great day!

74 blog posts. 32 YouTube Videos. 2,178 visitors.

363 days ago (the blog’s official b-day is 5/28/2016) we launched this site with one goal in mind: to speak directly to you, internet reader, and help guide you on the path to a better life. Whether you had an injury to rehab or were looking to get bigger, faster, and stronger, we’ve been putting down work to help you achieve your goals.

Year 2 promises to be bigger and badder: The gym opens. The first self-assessment and performance guide goes live. We can’t wait to share it all with you.

In the meantime, we thought it would be fun to link to a couple of our most popular posts from year one. If you’re a new reader, consider this a primer on what we’re all about. If you’ve been following all along, feel free to share with friends and family who you care about.

#1: “Why We Train”-Be Strong to Be Useful.

#2: “Are You Ready to Run:?Part VII”-Whether you run or not, if you sit more than 3 hours per-day, master this standard.

#3: “Treating Concussions”-The new standards for treating concussions.

#4: “Why I Hate Physical Therapy”-The genesis of the blog and the gym.

#5: “Research Update”-A convincing case for personalized medicine and hope for those of us trying our best to avoid dementia-related illnesses.

A big “Thank You!” is owed to all of you who’ve read, watched, and subscribed to our blog and YouTube channel. We hope you all have a great holiday weekend and spend a moment or two in silence to remember and be thankful for the good men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who paid the ultimate price for us to make the most of every day of freedom they purchased on our behalf.
