What is the best exercise of all time? How do you make a claim like that and what does that exercise have to do for the body to fit that mold? For some strength coaches it's the squat, for some the bench press or the clean. I think all of those exercises have their place and there is a spot in my heart for the squat for sure, but that is not it. You need an exercise that works wonders for a wide population of clients and athletes. An exercise that provides a ton of value for those that learn it and do it on a consistent basis.
Every day each person takes about 20,000 breaths. That is 20,000 repetitions of muscle contraction. Count up how many crunches, squats and lunges you have done, every rep making them as perfect as possible. Now think about breathing. Is that something you ever really think about? Unless you are suffocating, or have a cold, probably not. Have you ever thought you could be performing 20,000 reps a day wrong? Well, we all do it but there are some ways to help.
