Top Five Articles of 2016

by Dr. Michael MashUpdated

What a year! After starting Barbell Rehab in February, I couldn't be more thankful for my dedicated readers and those who have helped me on this incredible journey. Expect some BIG things for 2017...but for now, here's a recap of my top five articles of 2016!

5. Top 5 Squat Mobility Drills

For those that struggle with achieving adequate depth on your squats due to mobility restrictions, this one is for you. Here I outline my top five squat mobility drills. These aren't your average "run of the mill" drills that plague the internet either. Check it out HERE.

4. How to Squat Without Knee Pain

Knee pain during squats is a common problem from which many lifters suffer. Fortunately, there are some simple form modifications one can make to help with this! To learn how to squat without knee pain check the article out HERE.

3. Turn Your Feet OUT for a Bigger Squat

This one surely ruffled some feathers. While the feet forward squat is a great assessment of overall mobility, it is NOT the most effective way to load it in most cases. Find out why you should turn your feet OUT for a bigger squat at the link HERE.

2. Your Hips Don't Go Out of Place

A common theme I preach at Barbell Rehab is that your body is more ROBUST than you think! Contrary to popular belief, your hips do NOT go in and out of place! For those that do believe this and who are constantly struggling with one-sided low-back pain, check out the article HERE.

1. Stop Squatting Your Deadlifts

Finishing off the chart at number 1, this sure made a dent in the fitness industry. There's a lot of nonsense out there about getting your hips as close to the ground as possible for a deadlift, when it simply just doesn't work that way! Check out the article HERE!

Thanks again for your continued support. I look forward to continuing this journey with you into the new year!
