A Movement Matrix for All.

This week’s episode with Julien Pineau [@StrongFit1] wastes absolutely no time diving into the issues of training and organizing programming to expose athletes’ weaknesses. A passionate Pineau explains the balance of internal and external rotation as the perfect marriage. The goal is for that marriage to result in a beautiful, performance enhancing baby named…TORQUE. Then that baby grows up kicking everyone’s ass and getting plenty of chicks. The education never ceases at PAHQ and thanks to Julien, a fellow performance junky, we are constantly evaluating the way we perceive movement.

Hear how Julien consistently refers to the “end game” using chess as a perfect metaphor for movement and performance. With each chess piece serving a specific purpose, it’s impossible to ignore their importance particularly when the end game is near. All this and tales of a mutual friend, George Zangas, round out this meeting of the minds.

This year’s Power Athlete Symposium is now open to the public for the first time! If you haven’t heard of this annual knowledgefest, it’s basically the most badass three days spent in SoCal. Rub elbows with fellow Power Athletes and soak up the wisdom from guest speakers like Robb Wolfe, Andy Stumpf, Aaron Ausmus, and Brad Snyder. Of course you can expect that the PA Crew will also be leading the weekend with the latest and greatest out of HQ.  Registration can be found at https://powerathletehq.com/symposium and closes on November 23rd. Hope to see you there!
