    Loved the Cherry Baker interview, nice to hear someone talking about glutes as a major stabiliser in core strength activity. I totally agree they are one of the most important muscle groups in core strength!

    As a personal trainer I’ve been working with integrated excercises from day 1.
    Very functional, very simple movements, but much fun and very rewarding.
    It’s almost unbelievable, that people still are training “the old fashioned way”, workouts of 1 1/2 to 2 hours, with less results than we have!
