I often see questionable deadlifting on social media and even in person.
Here’s a great video between Supertraining’s Mark Bell + Mobility WOD’s Kelly Starrett, as we get to listen on a deadlifting session with the two. Tons of info, in 45 mins, folks. Enjoy.

I understand that every flip-flop colour imaginable is available at Old Navy on sale, currently and you can get a wearable colour for every day of the week.
I totally get that they’re easy to slip on and slip off whenever and wherever you’d like…
But flip-flops are terrible. Plain and simple.
On one hand, they lack proper support if you’re coming from the non-minimalis (i.e. maximum arch support) footwear school of thought.
But it goes beyond that biomechanically as Mobility WOD god, Kelly Starrett, breaks down how the thong in a thong-slipper flip-flop is causing direct and referred pain beyond your wildest dreams.
Like he says, if you’re serious about taking your fish oils, hydration levels, position and poundage on the bar, then scrapping the vintage flip-flop from your summer wardrobe is a huge step towards healthy and strong living.
