Hey everyone,

 

 

Big thanks for checking out the website today. Today is a very special day for me. Voting has begun to decide who is the top Rising Star in the fitness industry. I was nominated by my friend and mentor Zach Even-Esh. Voting started last night. If you still need to vote, here is the link:

Scroll down until you see my ugly mug and vote for me. From the looks of things, I am the only coach surrounded by a heap of weight loss, bootcamp style trainers. You can vote as many times as you want. Just hit the refresh button and vote again.

 

 

So take the day off work, stay home from school, and vote a few thousand times.

 

 

(just kidding)

 

 

On to the blog post for today. Today is the last day covering the prevention of lower back pain in throwers. This is a subject near and dear to my heart because I suffered with low back pain throughout my entire track and field career.

 

 

On day 1, you learned about the causes of back pain. Day 2 covered how to stretch the affected areas. Day 3 you visited with my chiropractor and former javelin thrower, Dan Denette.

 

 

Today is all about getting the hamstrings, low back, and hips stronger. In this video I cover 2 exercises that you can do after your warm up but before any heavy lifting or throwing to improve your low back health. Check it out.

 

 

 

 

 

There you have it. Improved flexibility and strength in the hamstrings, hips, and low back with just 2 exercises. Try these out today and let me know what you think.

 

 

This week I will be releasing a new book designed specifically for throwers. This book is 60 pages of training and conditioning information with a full 13 week training template that you can follow to maximize your strength gains.

 

 

It is in the final editing stages.

 

 

Just like the last big giveaway, the newsletter recipients will get the first crack at this. Make sure you sign up for the newsletter so you get first dibs on this great off-season training book. The sign-up form is at the top of this webpage.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Coach Matt Ellis
