Hudson, Massachusetts-based trainer Tony Gentilcore recommends deadlifts. “You'd be hard pressed to find a better exercise that trains the entire body,” he says. HOW TO DO THEM: Set up with your hips back and chest up making sure to maintain a neutral spine. Grab the bar with both hands. Keeping your arms fully extended, press yourself away from the floor through the heels until you're standing. Finish by squeezing your glutes at the top. On the descent, make sure to maintain a neutral spine -- no rounding. Push your hips back and keep sitting back until the weights reach the ground. Pause, re-establish proper positioning and repeat.
The 3’x6’ Pettibon Linked Exercise Trainer is for isometric exercises that stretch and strengthen postural muscles and increase endurance. Exercises in most gyms use isotonic (kinetic) exercises that exercise phasic muscles. Phasic exercises will make one strong; however they will not help and often hinder correction of the spinal subluxation complexes. Kinetic exercises should be discontinued during corrective care. Two people at a time can use the Pettibon Linked Exercise Trainer, making it even more efficient and cost-effective.
