How To Develop More Useful Strength

When doing strength work, it’s ideal to combine upper and lower body movements, which fosters better overall body awareness and neural activation.

Virtually all non-sedentary activities of daily living and sports require integrated activation of the upper body, core, and lower body.

For optimal conditioning and functional range of motion, it’s best to minimize use of momentum - the idea is to develop strength and control through as wide a range as possible.

With integrated body conditioning in mind, when doing body weight squats, you can add a one-two shadow boxing combo as you come out of each squat.
