How to Do a Squat Without Messing Up Your Knees

There is a formula for a good, stable squat (which I’m about to share with you), but keep in mind that this is just a loose prototype and the specifics will depend on your body and its limitations. “FLEXIBILITY and mobility are like the foundation of a house,” Milton says. “You can stack on as many bricks as you want, but if you don’t have that foundation, you’re putting strength on top of disfunction.”

This is How to Avoid Injury This Marathon Season.

My story is hardly an anomaly, says former athletic trainer Tony Vidal, CTO and creative content strategist of Beast Fitness Evolved.

How To Be Strong - Learning to be a BEAST

Beast owner Nik Barricelli confirmed to me that "HIIT can be intimidating to some people at first." And it's easy to see why. The very premise of HIIT revolves around pretty much nonstop action. There's cardio, weights, more cardio, more weights. There's little time to rest until the very end. And you're encouraged to push yourself to your very limit. There's no cheating in this class; you can go at your own pace, but...
