You Tube has become a huge source of exercise demonstrations. Recently the popular channel, Psyche Truth, reached out to Scott about filming an exercise demonstration of his choice. Their film studio is based locally out of Austin. The channel was new to us, but when I searched it online I was impressed to see it had a very substantial following. The channel is dedicated to bringing their viewers quality information on health and wellness. I was amazed at the variety of resources Psyche Truth offers. You can find videos on yoga, stress management and body pain to name just a few.
Psyche Truth Exercise Demos
Scott chose to showcase a signature exercise he uses with many of his athletes to build the base for more advanced hamstring work later on. The Iso-Extreme Prone Hamstring “Curl” is not really a curl, but a hold. It is a very humbling and effective exercise. After quite a bit of time using it in my workouts, I have progressed, but still implement it into my warmups.
I previously highlighted it in this bodyweight workout. The video breaks the exercise down even further through Scott’s explanation. So let us go to the videotape!
The video went live about a week ago. As of today the video it has over 15,000 views! We scrolled through the numerous comments the other night. I was tickled pink to see that one of the comments singled out how distracting my booty was! The flattery. I gushed to Scott…”is that a compliment”? All those squats I have been doing were obviously paying off! He agreed that it was a compliment…and then I scrolled down. That comment questioned if the previous guy needed glasses. He was most certainly not impressed with my booty. The internet is a harsh world my friends!
I was also asked to be a model for a 2nd video which highlights the Pen-Penny Exercise. This exercise is extremely helpful for anyone who has flat feet. I use it as a cue for when I am setting myself up for various exercises. It teaches the proper position of the foot, and will form the foundation for all lifts where you use a position one (i.e. the first step in any well executed squat, push press or RDL). A flat foot can also mean shin, knee or back pain if you perform long distance running.
You can also do it separately as an exercise to improve your foot arches. Fallen foot arches can lead to a lot of foot and back pain. It is always better to get ahead of any potential issues that you could develop down the road.
Check out the Psyche Truth Exercise Demos and let me know what you think! Scott also has his own You Tube Channel which offers a ton of great information on training.
