213 | Five Exercises You Should Be Doing | with John Frank

Mar 13, 2020

Today I have with me friend and family member John Frank, physical therapist, movement genius, and my brother.


What are the top 5 exercises you would recommend for people to do?

If you’re sticking to the expensive equipment, you might be doing yourself a disservice — because exercise machines don’t have you moving the body in natural ways! Good exercises should involve multiple parts of the body, should teach movement patterns that you use in everyday life, and should be varied. But these five exercises fit those criteria:

  1. One-legged squat
  2. Side plank or side bridge
  3. Bridge (using the glutes)
  4. Turkish squat
  5. Bird dog
