Hey Eric and everyone!

Perhaps this could help someone, I’d like to share my experience:

I did my own investigation because I practice trail running and in March of this year I’ve started to feel a pain in my right hip.

After doing an MRI, I’ve been diagnosed with FAI -femoroacetabular impingement with early arthritis and labral tears- [I’m 48 so personally I don’t see anything strange in having early arthritis].

The fact is that I’ve been told I couldn’t run anymore and I probably should get an arthroscopy surgery to repair my bones. I live in Spain and doctors community have a very poor vision of movements and sports and they associate pain with bones shape.

But the truth is that being passive doesn’t help at all and pain is often caused by muscle imbalances.
I’m very grateful that I’ve found “The Precision Movement” on the Internet and following Eric’s challenge “Hip flexibility and mobility” has helped me a lot.

4 months later after being diagnosed, I’ve started running again -with no pain-

I know that I still have to improve my strength and flexibility, but I know The Precision Movement is exactly the type of PT we need to improve the range of motion and getting back to normal activity.

Thanks a lot for your good work and to the members, i wish you the best in your workouts and a full recovery.

Come on!

Dear Coach E,

Just wanted to thank you for this video. I have been suffering from neck issues since last February when I experienced a concussion/whiplash while skiing. I started doing the stretches in your video [3 Unique Exercises for a Stiff Neck] and for the first time in a long time do I feel relief and have more mobility.
Thank again!

Hey Eric,

I’ve been doing the easy shoulder exercises you demo’ed a few months ago. Wow, what a difference!
I’m an amateur racer and once strapped into the cockpit, I could never reach the master switch, which is located directly behind my shoulder and rearward about 4″. Used to have to yell for help when I forgot to switch it on before strapping in. Or unstrap, twist around, turn it on, strap in again.
A few weeks ago I forgot to turn the switch on again after tightening the belts. Was about to call a friend over but decided to give it a try myself. Reaching behind me with my elbow pointing up, I easily reached the switch and turned it on all by my lonesome!
Thank you for one more thing you’ve helped me with.
Sincerely,
Jim G

Hey Coach E – Another success story for you. After watching your hamstring series I applied the reprogramming range of motion trench and WOW what success. As you know all the static stretching of hamstrings and thigh decays throughout the day. The hamstring glutes in the left leg after hip replacement were constantly tightening and even fighting for control – even impacting my right leg and knee especially. That, I’ll call it the kinetic stretch routine the left hamstring and glue both settled down and it was as if I could walk normally again. Lasted for hours before having to repeat the kinetic stretch, even after I sat over an hour – getting up used to be the worst thing gimping for numerous steps before table to get close to a normal gate. Can’t thank you enough. I’m a fan and will be a client again in the future once I get through full recovery.

Hi Coach E

I bought Hip Control in an attempt to get rid of my intermittent groin and knee pain. I have tried various traditional approaches over the years with limited or no success – mostly variations of static stretches. I scoured the internet for treatment solutions and came across your website and was very impressed with your approach to self care and injury management. What you had to say made sense and as a podiatrist I can see that your professional knowledge and its application is second to none.
Best wishes

I can honestly say without a doubt that THIS is by far the BEST exercise programme that I have had the pleasure to thus far come across.

By THIS I mean having access to all of the precision movement academy material.
And by BEST I mean for me, these courses have given me more physical strength, resilience, and postural comfort than any other discipline of movement I have dedicated myself to.
There are three main gifts for me in this material:
1st – The cost I think, is extremely generous and I am grateful.
2nd – Eric’s clear dedication to improving the overall efficiency of his mechanical body and his ability to share his findings in a clear precise and easy to digest manner.
3rd – The support, of the coaches, admin staff, and ergonomic availability of course material 24/7 online and in-app.
A tiny bit about me – I had done one of those online muscle development courses. To become BIG. And it worked, reaching the point where I couldn’t help but walk down the street like a BIG man, you’ll understand if you got there. However, I didn’t feel strong. I could lift heavy weights and do many reps and I looked fantastic but felt weak.
Following a trip abroad to an exotic location, I became bed-ridden and almost died. In the process, I lost approx 4 stone of physical weight from my soft tissues.
I returned home and began rehab. When it came to physical rehab I found I could not do simple exercises. I came across Eric’s work and began to understand my physical body better, breaking down the rehabilitation to the absolute basics, like the kindergarten ABCs, and then swiftly being guided through a syllabus up to advanced Calculus in Sanskrit.
I have never had so much CONTROL of my body, nor so much understanding of the varying states of fitness of all the different parts of my body, and how they all function together in an immersive experiential developing journey.
I now FEEL stronger than I did when I was extremely muscley and at the time apparently well proportioned. And although I don’t yet look, well, let us say powerful and sexy with all the show muscle. I simply don’t care, because I feel GREAT!
The sense of achievement is also fantastic, when control returns to the body, its like discovering a new technology or ancient mystical artifact in your own back garden. And I know that should I want to, and when I choose to, I could extremely easily add some mass and bulk up in a short period of time.
But I don’t think I will bulk up. I think I will keep weaving together a tight smooth flowing body with coordination and strength and resilience tying all the limbs together held like titanium alloy by the A.I. of a mechanically efficient and relaxed body that knows exactly where it is in time and space whilst soaking up every last generous drop of the available material here and there, and there is PLENTY HERE.
I’ll just end this by saying thank you for being an extremely fundamental catalyst in returning my body to a fully functioning better than before state to enjoy whatever movements I decide to take up for the rest of my life. And I hope you and your team and your sources of inspiration ALL feel the appreciation economically as well as spiritually.
Yours Sincerely
Graham B

Eric,

I have been suffering Tennis for about eight weeks. I had an injection which really helps with the pain about a month ago and it has resolved 80% of the pain.
I found your videos Googling Tennis elbow and found all others to be vapid or not logical methods to resolve the issue. I found yours to be practical and thoughtful.
I am a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt and have given up my dream to own my own gym due to this chronic issue. I hope that the techniques I learned today and started today will help me get back to the gym
Respectfully,

Courses Followed: Spine Control

Hi Eric,

Thanks for getting back to me. The program’s been going decent so far.
It’s been a lot of content to cover, which I’m happy with. I’m happy that the Spine Control content is well structured, as well. That is something I sought out for when beginning my road to recovery and longevity journey, and unfortunately it’s just something that none of the doctors that I worked with in the past had in their treatment plans.
Another thing that I really like about the course is that Eric focuses on breathing. I hope that performing 360 breathing some good things for me. In addition to helping the healing of damaged tissues, I think that this will help control stress and anxiety in everyday life, which in my personal opinion, is just, if not even more important for me in my healing process. Managing stress is often times very overlooked in modern medicine.
In the past, when working with doctors, I wasn’t able to properly heal after working on core stabilization. I worked with a few people, and I think that an underlying theme/issue was that the timing of progression was not thoroughly planned. 1 treatment was very static (continue to do what you’re doing), another treatment was very passive (chill-out, stretch, and do a few core exercises), and another too progressive (let’s get you squatting and deadlifting again; you currently pass all of my tests, and you move fine).
Thus, all I have to say is that I’m really looking forward to this journey, and I hope it gets me back to a state of health where I need to get to in my life and (hopefully) puts me that much farther ahead in the future.
Thanks,
Vincent

Courses Followed: Scap Strength, TFLPS

Hi Eric, thanks for the note.

I invested in the Scap Control programme primarily because of a long term AC Joint impingement which went from chronic to acute and stayed acute for two and half years despite numerous cortisone injections into the joint, a course of physio from a guy who just pulsed me with laser rays (or something!) and various bits of bro science on YouTube (“keep your scap packed down throughout lat pull downs bro!”).
I had already invested in TFL Pain Solution so I knew Coach E had some interesting techniques which above all got results!
For me, Scap Control was educational – how is my shoulder joint supposed to work? In my 45 years on this planet and many, many hours in the gym and on the rugby pitch I am not sure I intuitively knew (or maybe all the sitting at a desk and bro science washed away what I knew instinctively when I was four years old like my son now?).
Anyway, I am now on on SC Level 3 and I can flow from protraction to retraction and from depressed to elevated with ease (gone are the clicks and bumps along the way) and an unexpected benefit is that I am getting stronger (and just maybe a little bit buffer ). For all my gym junkie years (Monday – chest, Wednesday – arms, Friday – chest again, etc) my core was weak, the connection between my legs and my (over- worked) chest was not keeping up. Scap Control in some ways is making me stronger now in middle age than when I was testosterone-fuelled twenty-something!!!
I aim to stay on the same track once I have completed Level 3, following the same principles but pushing the boundaries. I hope to achieve 10 strict chin ups at some point (well, we can all dream…).
Thanks for the great advice Eric.
Kind regards.

Hi Coach! I just completed my first round of the fight stance knee drop. I got three reps on one side and four on the other. I put the iPad on a chair in front of me to follow along. This gave me something to hang on to and support myself as I rise and fall/drop into the position. I was pathetic in how little I could do without support, but I can only get better, right?

Even though it was really hard for me to do the movements, I tried. And although I intended to go onto the next exercise immediately, I decided to allow for more recovery time and take a bigger break. So, afterwards I noticed how nice and warm my hips felt, even though everything is maxed. I could tell some good things happened.
Thanks,
Jana S.

Courses Followed: Hip Control, Hip Flexibility Solution

Hi Eric,

I invested in Hip Control because I recently completed HFS and had very good results from it, and while I still enjoy the HFS routines and find them to be effective, I want to learn new techniques to hopefully progress and improve further. I’ve been working at a desk job for about 15 years, combined with a fairly high volume of leg exercise in my off hours (squatting, deadlifting, olympic lifts, running, etc), and I had neglected true mobility training up until this year when I started HFS (I say “true” because I thought I was doing mobility work, but it was either not enough or not effective). So needless to say, my body, especially the legs/hips, have taken a lot of abuse. Earlier this year I started to pay the price in the form of injuries and chronic stiffness.
HFS has repaired a good amount of that damage and has improved my hip flexibility/mobility significantly in just a few months, but I know that realistically it’s going to take longer than that to erase 15 years of abuse. I figure that if I’m going to continue trying to improve, I might as well learn some new techniques and figure out which ones are most effective for me (maybe it’ll be some combination of what I learn in HC and HFS, we’ll see). In particular, I’d like to strengthen my hips and other leg muscles in a way that keeps them balanced, so that I avoid the compensatory M/APs going forward.
Sandra L.
I had a bad groin injury several years ago and have had problems ever since. I’ve also gone through some very stressful life situations and had some chronic pain and inflammation.
I have worked with the Hip Flexibility Solution and the TFL programs (as well as dietary and some other lifestyle changes) and it’s all helping, but I wanted to get the full picture.
I truly feel that you have the best, most comprehensive information available; I just wanted to get as much as I could.
I have to work very slowly and carefully so as not to reinjure this area. I’m making progress thanks to your programs.

Chronic hip and ankle pain and stiffness was the reason I signed up for the Lower Limb Control course.

My hip and ankle pain are almost completely resolved and my mobility significantly improved. Will continue working because I want to get stronger and continue improving my mobility.

Previously I had tried acupuncture, chiropractor, trigger point therapy for years with no long term improvement in my pain.

The Split stance squeeze is my favorite exercise in the Lower Limb Control course so far.

I invested in Hip Control because of chronic hip and ankle pain which affected my day to day life.

After 2+ month of working my hips, lower limb, spine I am finally pain-free and my mobility is 100% better.

I have tried many things over the past including acupuncture, chiropractor, trigger point therapy but nothing worked.

I have many favorite exercises from the Hip Control course such as, butterfly reach, active front split, but the one that stabilized my whole right side from feet to hips was the SPLIT STANCE SQUEEZE which is my absolute favorite.

Hey Coach E,

I want to thank you for what you have taught me so far. I am 65 and have struggled with back pain in one form or another since I was a teenager. As I have reached my 60’s I have really been struggling just to get out of bed some days. I am not someone who just sits around or relies on pain medication and have always been active. Years of rugby have contributed to a lot of my physical issues.

Anywaaaaayyy.. after day 1 of your program I felt immediate relief with the martial art 90/90 pose. I still can’t get to where you are in the pose but I know I will eventually. I am super stoked to learn more about my own body mechanics and how I can get off the sidelines again 🙂

Thanks a million 🙂

My main reasons for investing in the course was pain, inflexibility, etc. Since I was young, I always hated my thighs. I felt like they were thick and clumsy, and I think this was partly because I did a lot of horse back riding (up to 5 horses a day) and strenuous exercise.

At 19-20 years old, I experienced back pain for the first time. I got over it quite quickly despite it being very painful, but knew that I hadn’t entirely solved the problem and it would come back. Through my 20’s I discovered alternative forms of exercise, mainly doing things at much lower intensity and I also started yoga, which helped a lot. At 25 I started going to a masseur once a month. All of this helped and I liked my thighs a lot more at this point, but still noticed that certain basic exercises were more difficult than they should be at my level of fitness. Exercises incl. one legged hip thrust, one legged squat, push up (winging).

I started Hip Control and Scap Strength at the same time. I experienced results such as changes in pain, mobility and being able to do things I couldn’t do before. For me, the biggest help came from the inner rotation exercises. They improved the small pains I had alongside my leg (sometimes groin pain, sometimes pain at side of knee, sometimes pain at side of hip).

Previously I had difficulties activating my glutes at a level I felt was satisfactory, but my ability to activate glutes improved tremendously. I had been doing glute exercises regularly for 3-4 years previously, but only got moderate results before the Hip Control course. I still can’t do a perfect one legged squat, but I feel I’m getting there. Also to any fellow women out there; The Hip Control really improves thigh shape if you suffer from square, “manly” thighs.

Things I’ve tried in the past that did not work were strenuous exercises such as running, sports, weights at the gym, indoor cycling etc. What helped in the past was yoga, walking, gentle stretches, masseur, physiotherapy exercises, low to medium intensity body weight or low weight muscular condition exercises.

Inner rotation exercises were my favourite and I found them particularly effective. I liked the fact that there so many of them. The elastic band exercise in Hip Flexibility where you use an elastic band to push back the head of the femur into the socket was really good for me. I actually improvised a little to get more variations to the exercise because it felt so good and seemed so effective for me.

...[I have] replaced most of my normal workouts with those from Precision Movement…

Thank you, Eric. Softball games caused my knee to ache every day and I wanted to try something besides ibuprofen and naproxen.

I’ve suffered through tight and pinchy hips for years, and can say that 90% of all my discomfort has disappeared thanks to Eric’s Hip Control and Hip Flexibility programs.

The best part; I’ll be able to continue working on the remaining 10% with all the knowledge I’ve gained. I particularly liked the supine butterfly knee extensions, hinge walk, 1-leg hinge opener, and deep squat knee extensions.

Hi Eric,

I just want to tell you how thrilled I am with your TFL program. Honestly I can’t tell you how many physiotherapists I’ve been to in the last 7 years.

After the spine surgery I was determined to get this sorted and thought the best bet would be U of T MacIntosh Clinic. The doc told me it was periformis syndrome and sent me to a massage therapist. WTF? Went to many others and just got so frustrated. No one ever said anything about the TFL. Don’t even think I knew what that was until I found your site.

You are a rock star and please keep doing what you are doing. And if you can set up training for all the physiotherapists in Ontario and beyond that would be amazing. 🙂

Hello Eric.

I’ve been following you for sometime and bought your Hip Flexibility Solution a year or so ago (this worked really well – cheers!)

I still suffered from pain and discomfort daily from outside of my right lower leg and ankle. Your Lower Limb Control Program seemed to fit my needs so I bought it and got started straight away. I can feel the difference already and have been almost pain free after the second session. Thank you again! I’ll keep going to the end of the whole course.

The TFL Pain Solution Phase 2 is going well!

For example, on Tuesday I taught two dance classes in the morning then joined my neighbor for a 2-hour line dance class in the evening. In the past I would have been in a lot of pain in the TFL area, a dull nagging pain that I would have either iced, heated or taken an anti-inflammatory as a consequence. I felt nothing on Tuesday evening, my right hip felt relaxed and pain-free.

I sometimes notice a niggle, generally when I am carrying heavy bags, but I do a combination of phase 1 or phase 2 exercises that now keep my hips in good health with no tightness and very little pain.

I cannot thank you enough as I am now able to move as I used to and I also, very importantly, now understand what the problem is and how I can keep on top of it.

I am grateful to you. I appreciate your message in this email [YOGA: Instagram vs. Reality], and I agree wholeheartedly with what you say about yoga and safety. It’s unfortunate that the true message of yoga seems to have been lost to the pursuit of the most impressive asana and the cutest pants. I am a yoga instructor, and currently training to be a Yoga Therapist. My goal is to help people out of pain.

I, too, have developed painful imbalance and injury in my body over the years from strength training, HIIT without stability, and a forceful approach to asana (as well as a bike accident that forced me to stop doing all of the above and look for a better way).

I am grateful to have found your work, because it fills what I see as a gap in most other therapeutic modalities. The programs are practical and the results speak for themselves. I especially appreciate all the background info you give about the “why” of the programs. I’ve learned so much from you.

The reason I decided to invest in the Hip Control course is because I have suffered with pain in my right hip for about 5 years. The pain as cleared and I now have more mobility in the hips and a better understanding of how the joint work. I have visited physiotherapist in the past which helped a little but never really resolved the problem. I found all the exercises very beneficial and now use some of them in my yoga practice. I feel much more confidant and have a better understanding of how the hip works.

Can’t wait to start the next course.

[3 Steps to Addressing Tensor Fasciae Latae Pain & Tightness]

Finally! I’ve been dealing with TFL pain for 2.5 months now, and all my attempts to rehab my hip have seemed to make it worse. Now I realize that a lot of my rehab exercises have been working the TFL, which is the last thing I should be doing if my pain is a result of my TFL being overworked ( which I strongly suspect is the case, because I don’t feel much pain in the morning, but after a long day of walking (as I was doing on vacation last week) it hurts like all hell.).

Until I found this video and your blog post, nobody had shown me, including an ortho doc I visited, how to do rehab exercise that would exercise the other muscles in my hip while putting minimum strain on the TFL.

My knees and ankles were stiff and impacted my ability to do martial arts. I also had surgery to reattach my LCL on the right knee. I wanted to strengthen and improve the mobility of my knee after surgery so I can return to my martial arts.

My ankle and knee have improved incrementally. I feel more solid and stable when running and jumping and doing kicks. Because I am right side dominant, it seemed to improved better on that side instead of the left.

My knee after surgery is still stiff and certain movements are still painful but I have noticed improved mobility. The twisting squat and kneeling switches seem to be good for it. The ASMR for the joints and joint mobility exercises are great. A really good way to relax the feet and lower leg.

I hope your other readers find similarities with their own experiences so that they can identify with my experiences, and have time to learn from my mistakes!

From a young age, I knew I needed to be strong if I wanted to be a successful circus acrobat. Unfortunately, I did not have access to a facility that could educate me in this training. I trained using only with my body weight, generally doing a variety of acrobatic exercises, depending on what new “act” I was learning at the time. My first serious training was on the trampoline where I developed strong legs, only to discover that my knees weren’t perfect. However, my ankles and hips were fine. I learned to catch people on my shoulders while standing on the unstable trampoline mat. This wasn’t always kind to my back! I should have paid more attention to strengthening my butt and stabilizing my hips, if only I knew better.

My next increase in body strength started when I was fifteen years old. I trained to do a hand balancing act using wooden blocks. Building them up and throwing them down while balancing on my hands. The act was about 6 minutes long and I needed a lot of strength to stay up that long in my arms doing one arm balances and bent arm presses to handstands. Try doing a handstand against a wall for a few minutes to appreciate the strength required to do this. My training consisted of many hours of push-ups, handstands against a wall, walking up and down stairs in my hands and even more hours perfecting one arm balances on both arms.

Flying trapeze was my passion. Ever since my first swing on a trapeze and dropping into the safety net, I knew I wanted to be a Flying Trapeze artist. So a whole new set of muscles needed to be made stronger through hours of training, including overhand grip chin-ups. I wanted to learn everything I could about it and did not limit my training to just the acrobatic flying, but also the demanding catching. I used my experience as a base (catcher) performing with my sister doing a Duo Trapeze act, where I hang by my legs from the trapeze and manipulate her doing a variety of poses and releases. Knee hanging requires great hamstring strength.

Without planning it, I had trained every major muscle group in my body, to deal with not only my body weight, but the added weight that accompanies dynamic and explosive demands on my body by my actions, or those of my partners. I, therefore, needed to be strong enough to endure these demands, especially during repetitive train and repeating actions over and over again, to perfect our acts and keep my partners safe.

My first injury took place during my first professional contract. An unfortunate landing in the safety net resulted in a broken capsule joint of my right elbow. At the time, I was ignorant about repairing injuries and was satisfied that since X-rays revealed no broken bones, I would heal completely over time. Wrong, and I blame the doctor who sent me home despite a massive hematoma that had developed under my arm from internal bleeding and soft tissue damage. I returned to catching on the flying trapeze as soon as I could tolerate the pain. Those were the days of “no play, no pay”, and I needed money to survive.

Another bad landing in the safety net, two years later, resulted in a bucket tear on my right meniscus – surgery! Fortunately no long term effects yet! Performing professionally is very taxing on your body. I was always getting minor injuries like broken ribs, toes, fingers, shoulders, torn hands and more stiff necks than I could remember. I was blind to a future of pain. I lived in the present, and I lived hard!

Years later, I started to experience pain, swelling and loss of feeling to my right hand, forced me to get an MRI on my right elbow. Scar tissue and osteoarthritis had developed during the previous 19 years after my elbow injury, resulting in the first of two elbow surgeries. I continued my flying trapeze act after a two-month recovery. More recently, the range of movement has been severely compromised since then and I can only get from 80 degrees bent to 160 degrees straight. Doctors are doubtful if I’ll ever achiever full range of movement in that elbow again.

The injury that forced me to stop my flying trapeze act after 15 wonderful years was an avulsion fracture on my left elbow. The tell-tale signs of osteoporosis. Two years later I injured my right shoulder while training a young catcher. The surgeon did an acromioplasty which is removing the lower edge of the acromion bone trying to create more space and avoid impingement for my supraspinatus rotator cuff muscle. An avoidable surgery if only I knew about scapular biomechanics. Thanks to Coach E, I am better informed now and will try avoid future unnecessary invasive procedures!

Next was my left knee meniscus tear while spotting someone on the trampoline. No long term effects other than nagging pain at night forcing me to sleep with a pillow between my knees! I have since discovered the success of PRP injections and as long as I get the once a year, my knee pain is under control.

I then damaged the labrum on my right shoulder while catching. The surgeon did a SLAP repair and told me he had never seen so much damage to one shoulder. He gave me a two-year recovery, but circumstances and financial survival had me catching again 9 months later. Sorry Dr. Hammond, sorrier to myself!

It was once again my right elbow that gave me enough reason to see my surgeon two years later. He did his best to “clean out” the elbow joint from arthritic bone spurs doing a “debridement” procedure, but that didn’t have the result I hoped for. I continued to have pain relating to my activities doing aerial acrobatics and coaching. I’m still searching for a pain free future for my right elbow, as I will continue to be active.

Catching on the Flying Trapeze at the age of 57 was probably not a great decision considering the next injury I endured! A full-width tear of the supraspinatus rotator cuff and partial tear of the infraspinatus rotator cuff. Plus an 80 percent wearing of the bicep head tendon. The surgeon believed that the time it took for those repairs to heal would be enough time for all the other minor injuries to heal that was present in my shoulder at the time. What I didn’t count on was the adhesive cellulitis, that became apparent a year after that surgery, resulting in another surgery to release the frozen shoulder. It’s been two years since that surgery and I’ve only just started to get almost a full range of movement again and being able to train and regain some of the muscular atrophy that had taken place throughout my body while I was forced into inactivity.

I decided to study again and came to Montreal which is the circus capital of the world. I found a mentor to train under and did a course at the National Circus School. One of the subjects dealing with the Prevention of Injuries is the reason I found your website. I was researching answers regarding shoulder impingement when I discovered your site and have been inspired to get back into shape, using your exercises and pure zest for the longevity of movement. It has been a profound personal achievement for me to be able to move again after my inactivity and depression about my broken body.

I am now able to do handstands again! I’m still unable to stay up longer than 35 seconds, but my bent right arm limits me. I’ve managed to get back my chin up strength and recently achieved 6 sets of 25 reps, three with a forward grip and three with a reverse grip! I do 4 sets of 25 abs exercises most days, but push-ups and overhead pressing is my weakness. I focus on protraction and retraction exercises mostly, to move my scapular better, and my favorite – doorway stretching. Trying to release the tight pecs I created when I was a teenager, doing thousands of push-ups.

So on a personal note Coach E, thank you for being where I could find you. By the way, I aced the exam for my course using your information! Thank you for your clear explanations which helped me understand my body’s biomechanics better. Thank you for giving me precise and achievable goals through the correct exercises. I still have a long way to go to get rid of all the bad M/APs I have ignorantly allowed my body to learn. A Physio recently called me a master of compensation! Normally I would regard that as a compliment, but in this case, it gives me the motivation to develop the correct M/APs and biomechanics so that I can one day return to swinging on a flying trapeze again, just for fun, and without the fear of possible pain.

Coach E, thank you for helping me repair my broken wings!

Thank you again Eric.

Your BulletProof back exercises gave me my normal life back and I can’t thank you enough.

I am back to playing with my band and am able to have a fairly normal life.

I am the second one towards the rear on the left-hand side. 64-year-old male. I thought this photo was appropriate because I actually retired from this band due to back problems. I am now happily back playing.

It’s easy to see how people would become discouraged not realizing there are simple effective solutions. The solutions require consistent application and discipline, but they work.

You’re the best.

Please always include the master manual in your courses. I read it and study it and the information that I have learned has come in handy when I talk to people. I’ve even been able to explain to some why they have pain and where it’s from, told them 1 exercise to do to make it better.

When they ask about my knowledge, which they usually do after they see pain alleviated I give them your name and tell them I buy your programs that have educated me and alleviated/resolved my pain.

Thanks!

Firstly I must say the TFL routine has already helped me greatly. I got injured at the beginning of the year. Then tried my best to get back to my old self to no avail. Tried everything I could think of. Even went to the doctor but all they did was give me pain meds which as soon as they were finished I was pain riddled again. Your advice and program have been the only thing that’s actually helped me.

I honestly thought I would have to stop playing basketball, which is something I love dearly and was on the verge of depression. Your program saved me and it gave me hope. While I’m still not quite myself I think if I keep doing the program I’ll likely get back close to who I was physically.

I live in a country without access to proper sports injury experts so finding your stuff was a Godsend. Just a few weeks of your program and I went from not being able to even walk without pain to being able to run relatively pain-free. Can’t thank you enough, you made me have hope when I thought I had none.

I love the info you provide, I will definitely recommend your site and programs to any athlete I know that’s battling injury.

Lastly, I just have to say thank you again. You helped me when I thought my TFL state was going to be permanent and helped avoid depression because of it.

Thank you for the wonderful article! It’s very nice to have such a reference for everyday use!

I came from the injury camp myself — I had an acromioclavicular ligament partial tear about 3 years ago. I’ve done my rehab, and I’m now doing your Scap Control program (which is absolutely amazing!).
I’ve seen great progress from the Scap Control program. Previously the overhead movements were painful, now they are not. I’m continuing to do SC, and I certainly will do the Shoulder Control when it’s ready.
I know that eventually, that will help with my shoulder instability.

I’ve been dealing with leg and hip issues since I shattered my right femur in 2007. Your hip flexibility program helped tremendously, and I was able to diagnose a pelvic alignment problem that turned out to be some compressed discs in my lumbar.

My chiropractor resolved that but I have been struggling with leg strength and some TFL pain as you described in your vids. Also since I broke my femur I’ve had a short piriformis that I assume is causing some sciatic pain I’ve been experiencing.

This is the first time I have actually had some real improvement in these three issues. I am very excited now it appears I might finally get my superman legs back.

Thank you for your great programs and the terrific instruction that you’ve given.

My main reasons for purchasing courses are always the same with the Precision Movement Academy. I find in your courses a big resource of exercises and solutions to apply in my sport and my health.

LLC, in particular, was absolutely effective in resolving many issues with my feet and ankles. I had troubles with my balance because of old injuries from several Taekwondo performances and the LLC exercises and concepts helped me to improve my movements a lot. BEST IMPROVEMENT SO FAR: My Balance!

It is a great course.

My favorite exercises were: Ankle / Toe dissociation (every morning I do these!), Reverse Slide Lunge, Twisting Squats ( a big control challenge!), 1 Leg MTP Circles, and Lunge Stance Front Foot Circles.

Thank you very much, Eric!!

Hey Eric,

Your HFS program has been amazing! For the first time in years, I now know what it feels like to be “free” in the hip region, lol. In doing your routine I’ve now switched my lifestyle over to more flexibility training as opposed to heavy weight lifting. I now do yoga almost every day of the week and include different parts of your routines into it, and maybe hit the gym up 2 or 3 times a week, but lifting much lighter more high reps. I’ve noticed that my body is happily reacting to yoga mixed with your routine…I can now do things more freely than I used to. It used to be hard to wake up in the morning and make it to the bathroom without feeling like my back was going to “throw out”! Now, my back is more flexible along with the hips and legs and it makes a million dollar difference.

Your routine works…I felt a huge difference within the first week! I didn’t realize how weak I was in certain areas and your routine brought those to my attention.

Thanks a ton for creating this program….keep up the good work Eric.

How ironic! Yesterday I tweaked my low back at work from simply bending over to retrieve a wrench and when I stood back up I did so at a slight angle and BAM! Tweaked my low back! This morning I was still experiencing the discomfort. It was like something was out of alignment.

Started this (HFS) series of exercises and on the 3rd rep of the bird dogs with my left leg extended I felt and hear an audible click. I did one more rep per side, stood up and to my amazement the tweak was gone! Not just feeling better but GONE!

Eric Wong saved my life!

This is probably a long overdue email and it was only when I received your email saying that I had been inactive for a long while that I thought I’d better send this.

I have always lifted weights and did some bodybuilding when I was younger. I even entered the Darkside a little bit but about 2 years ago I seemed to develop severe bursitis in both shoulders and had a torn rotator cuff with a 10 mm tear. In all the scans and the two surgeons that I saw said the only way was to have surgery and I would never lift weights properly ever again.

While in a state of depression I was scrolling through the Internet I came across Eric and after reading I decided to purchase the shoulder flexibility program but more importantly the scapula strengthening program from him.

I began working through the scapular strength program from the start and eventually found out that my shoulder felt better and better. Although I could not lift weights it also gave me a sense of purpose.

I still could keep in a routine by going to the gym and keeping in contact. Although I am now 51 years old and not as strong as I used to be I’m still managing to bench press 140 kg and military press 90 to 100. 2 years ago I never thought I’d even be there. I could not even brush my teeth or work properly as I said at 51 years old. I know that the tear will still be there but with the added stability in my shoulders and scapula, I think it has counteracted this. I still struggle on some days with pain but I still religiously do a scapula strength routine before every single workout. So although the title I gave this email was Eric wong saved my life it may have been a bit melodramatic but without going to the gym my mental state would not have been good.

So after this long email, I would just like to personally thank Eric for his revolutionary and inspirational programs. Please keep up the good work

Thanks, Russell, from Australia.

Why did I invest in Hip control? Well I’ve actually invested in Hip Control and Hip Flexibility and am starting with hip flexibility. I am here because I love endurance trail running.

I had to stop running in the end of January 2017 due to too much pain in my right low back and hip area. It’s never gone away.

I started and stopped several times between then and Oct 2017 but the pain was just so debilitating. I realized rest wasn’t working for me. In Nov i started up again.

By mid Dec i was back at square one and could barely move. I’ve had hip and low back x-ray and outside of some very minor degenerative disk between L4 and L5 there is nothing anybody can see. I believe therefore that i should get better.

I found out that my glute mead wasn’t firing. I searched the Internet for some exercises and found you. The exercises for glute mead activation felt really good.

I signed up for your 5 day hip flexibility and mobility challenge. Your exercises were amazing. I hadn’t felt this good in a long time.

So here I am. :). I’ve got a running training plan to build myself back up slowly and I’m in the gym 6 days a week. I still have pain, but I’ve seen a tremendous amount of improvement over the last two weeks.

Thank you!! Here’s hoping I’ll be back at 50km + training again soon!!

Eric,

The 4 weeks of doing HFS (Hip Flexibility Solution) have really helped. Left hip flexor is no longer inflamed, and I don’t feel like an 80-year-old woman any more when I get up from sitting for long periods (which I try to avoid, but I AM on the bus for an hour every workday).
I’m not experiencing soreness while running, and my body responds better after I run. I still have a way to go, but I’ve definitely seen the fast results you mentioned I would. And the exercises don’t really take that much time and are easy to incorporate into my day.
I have been impressed enough with your system that I purchased the Shoulder program as well–and a few other programs.
Thanks for creating such useful and helpful training tools!

Anthony Sharah

Courses Followed: Hip Control

Hip Control is a fantastic program. I am moving through it at my own pace, which is pretty slow. Most of the work I have done has been glute and psoas activation. This has worsened the stiffness in my hip. Obviously, I have taken it too far, but this has been a good learning experience.

I have started to work on abduction and found that this action dulls the pain and discomfort. So, I have been working this action 3 or 4 times a day. What is great about your program is education. Knowledge is power. I have been able to train a movement, then stand back and watch what happens. It is a great learning experience.

So I believe that I also had the issue of the psoas being dysfunctional. The psoas activation drills fixed this issue in the first two weeks. Initially, I was getting a cramp in my thigh, as the rec fem tried to do the job on its own. Once the psoas kicked in, I could feel the load of the leg being distributed across the whole of the hip structure.

Ryan followed the Hip Control Program

Courses Followed: Hip Control

I invested in this course because I was looking to increase flexibility and control for my kicks in Muay Thai and for my guard work in BJJ. I have previously used other courses of Eric’s and I was sure this would not disappoint.

I can get deeper into squats without pain or binding. I feel like I can move with more control and my balance is better too. Additionally, after not going to the gym for 6 months and only doing my martial arts and the Hip Control program I hit an all-time personal record with my dead-lifts (about 30lbs above my previous PR) which I fully attribute to the increased strength in my stabilizer muscles from doing Hip Control.

Standard “gym class” stretches like trying to touch my toes, do “the splits” and the like. I would see improvement while I was doing them every day but if I missed any time my results would vanish.

The clear and detailed guide videos that walk you through each technique before going “live.” Having the coaching videos separate from the follow-along videos made it nice and convenient.

I started The Hip Control program to address Lower back pain, hip flexibility (forward/back bending is ok, inner/outer rotation sucks), and general curiosity.

Billy, 52

Courses Followed: Student of the Precision Movement Academy

I purchased Hip Control because I thought it would bring together all my body’s’ architecture together in one unifying celebration of movement. I have issues with a continuing tight quad/hip flexor on my left side, when I do hip circles as a warm-up I get clicking or heavier clunks from that area, This has been improved but not eradicated.

I feel the first exercise was fundamental to me, I normally have my feet slightly bunny like and so am trying to turn years of muscle compensation around. When I have my feet pointing straight ahead I feel that my feet are pointing inwards!! I do feel the course has helped my stability and movement range….sometimes I just feel very upright and in control, a good feeling.

I practice yoga. I use foam rollers and balls for facia release. Yoga is extremely helpful to me on many levels but doesn’t hone in on a problem area as your courses do. As we know rolling and balls help but issues return!

Being coached is very rewarding. The tasks themselves were and are great fun.

I’m continuing with the course and want to fit in some movement patterns to my every day for continuing stability and control.

The first course that I ever purchased from Eric was the Hip Flexibility Solution. I had been trying to rehab a knee injury for several years. I now know that his material is amazing and knew that I would see the results that I want 🙂

My pain and mobility improved almost immediately. Having completed the course, my issues are almost 100% resolved.

Before Hip Flexibility Solution, I followed traditional physio/massage-therapy material, which was just ok.

I am now a proud subscriber of the Precision Movement Academy and continue to enjoy exploring my body and learning through movement.

My primary purpose in investing was to expand my mobility tool kit. There are actions/exercises I have used in the past, but you get bored with the same old thing. You always have new tips and tools for improving overall mobility and I like that!

I really wasn’t dealing with any pain or activities that I couldn’t do. But I do have a much better range of motion in my hips than before.

I really like the “follow along” videos. I just play those and follow along to do the workout for the day. Being able to see and follow along is MUCH easier than trying to read a description or look at static images and figure out how a movement is supposed to be done.

Chantal Couturier, 59

Courses Followed: Hip Control

I loved Hip Control. I started with a hip rotator injury and a lot of over-stressed hip flexors (from running with a blocked pelvis and a non-functioning right glute) and with high hamstring tendonitis (from a long time high hamstring injury reactivated by overstretching).

So I wanted to retrain all my muscles, strength first and flexibility second before I run again. I feel I’m now super strong and flexible enough and I am running again without any pain and with a great form. I liked the progression of the course. My great challenge was HC3 Supine Butterfly Knee extension on the injured side, but just when I thought I should back off I became stronger and could do it without feeling I was gonna rip my hip off.

I gained a lot in strength and stability/balance. My right leg is slightly less flexible than the left, but it improved a lot and I can have it now almost at a 90-degree angle while in a supine position despite my constant effort of not stretching it too much as it might be counterproductive in my case. I love the follow-along videos, as it gives the feeling of not doing it alone. It allows having a constant reminder of a good posture as well.

Jason Robinson, 49

Courses Followed: Student of the Precision Movement Academy

Have suffered for years from a lower back prolapsed/degenerative disc. Resulted in lower back stiffness and muscle spasms, some of which would completely incapacitate me where I had to lie on my back for a couple of days until it slowly released. I then felt nervous about getting back into exercises. I would protect my back which I think in turn reduced my natural/correct mobility.

Despite previous physiotherapy and Pilates; I was amazed at how effective your Hip flexibility program was in reducing the tightness and pain in my lower back. It was like a miracle. Before that, I had assumed that my tightness /reduced mobility was something I would just have to accept and live with. Upon recognizing and understanding Eric’s theory and movements/techniques I was keen to do and learn more about your programs. Although I’ll never have a 21 yr old lower spine again, I am continuing to go from strength to strength with more flexibility/mobility. I can now more confidently flex my spine with less worry of it going into a spasm. I generally feel far less stiff in that area, even first thing in the morning when I get up. It’s a great feeling again.

Prior to Eric’s program (as stated above) I had tried lower back and hip passive stretches which on occasions gave short term pain relief, but did not improve my range of movement. Before your programs, I wasn’t aware of the correlation with my lack of Hip mobility.

I thoroughly enjoyed all of the exercises/techniques but particularly the seated butterfly reach, side kicks, 90 90 Bear Sit, deep wall squats & the stairs/ get up hacks were great.

“After four weeks…WOW! I am not cured yet or anything but I have seen very dramatic results.I have had severe pain and weakness in primarily my right shoulder, but also the left, for the last 8-10 years or so. I have tried physical therapy, cortisone injections, static stretching, rolfing, exercises and medications such as NSAIDs and muscle relaxers.

Surgery was recommended by some but I never tried it.

All these things would temporarily give partial relief, but never long term or total relief.

I train in MMA as a hobby and it limits me greatly due to the pain and limited range of motion, I also work as a watchmaker and by the end of the day, I would be in a lot of pain and have numbness in my fingers.

I also would wake up numerous times in the night because I sleep on my side and my shoulder pain and tingling would wake me up.

I was hanging some curtains two weeks ago, after only two weeks in the program and realized I had no pain in my shoulders, I can’t remember the last time that happened.

I am sleeping through the night, I am able to train in MMA with only minor soreness and greatly increased range of motion, I am able to work through the day with little to no pain and no numbness.”

I’ve gone through the Hip Control manual and modules thoroughly and I’m hard pressed to find a more complete guide to one of, if not THE Most Complicated Joint Complexes in the human body.

Coach E has done an amazing job in distilling the research into a simple, easy to follow series of modules that will both educate the user and help them achieve optimal hip mobility, mechanics and CONTROL.

As a strength coach that focuses on Hardstyle Kettlebell Training, this resource is ESSENTIAL for both extension-dominant athletes, giriveks and an active population as it is for anterior-dominant “everyday” folks that want to get out of pain and move well to live life.

The section on proper BREATHING alone is a game-changer and will completely transform anyone’s exercise regimen let alone their overall health and sense of well-being.

Hip Control is a MUST HAVE for coaches and anyone who wants to live a healthy, active life.”

Hi Eric,

I just wanted to say I am noticing a huge improvement in my spine from this program. I just actually did squats for the first time and some jogging up hills yesterday, both normally finish me off for days with back pain. I probably shouldn’t be squatting yet but no pain, this is weird (but in a good way). Thanks!

I did three of those exercises: Press-up, Bird-dog, and Bridge. Just one set before going somewhere, even 5 or 6 reps, 10-sec hold, just to loosen up my back. It works great. I am getting up from the floor so easy after this set, like some 18-year-old gymnast! Thank you for this. It’s pure magic!
