    Hey Joe & Bryce,
    Thoughts on this Jordan Shallow post?

    LOW BACK STRENGTH DOESN’T EXIST.
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    So please, for the love of god, stop telling people they need to “strengthen” their lower back.
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    The lumbopelvic region is the most complicated intersection of force transfer in your entire body. And with this complexity comes with it a great deal of misnomers, the most egregious of those being the myth of low back strength.
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    The Gluteus Maximus and Latissimus Dorsi are muscles that require a great deal of strength in order to maintain a healthy low back.

    But the pursuit of localized strength of muscles of the lumbar spine is a red herring that’s been so widely perpetuated it’s been unquestioned as truth.
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    So rather than spending countless hours “superman-ing” us and our clients into oblivion, I want you to consider fixing your damn shoulders so you can actually utilize your Lats properly, and fix your hips so you can use your glutes properly.
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    Exercise economy is a crucial concept you need to grasp if you’re going to become a great coach. @pre_script

    Makes sense. Thanks Joe. And yup, sorry about that. Wasn’t looking to start trouble or anything like that.
