Anatomy Study Tips: An example study set up for learning anatomy

Anatomy Study Tips

This video is for the people who have started to learn anatomy, but are looking for a way to fine-tune their study set up.

This is just an example of how I’ve evolved since beginning to learn anatomy.

For a list of all the tools I use, I’ve made a list in PDF format.

I believe it’s important to add that no amount of colored pens will make you smarter. It takes a lot of hard work and social isolation. Think through your anatomy during your workouts. Practice palpating on a friend. You’ve got to put it into action.

Counterintuitive Progression

Inspired by Jae’s video about starting and ending bar fights last month, I decided to look at the other side of the upper body: the back.

Here I will show you an example of how I teach the movements (thanks to the fresh intern meat), which of them is more difficult, and why all upper body exercises are also lower body exercises.

Basic Bioenergetics

PREFACE: ^^This video^^ is TOTALLY FREE.

Time and time again we have kids come in who play sports year round. You hear their schedule and you think, “Wow, that kid must be in good shape.”

But if you’re an observant coach, you know this isn’t always the case. You ask them to move around and bit and they’re sucking wind. Some of them seem like they will never recover.

This topic is a fundamental component of being a good coach. To understand how someone who is constantly active could possibly gas out so quickly, you must understand bioenergetics.

Watch the video above if to brush up on this important topic.
