Viking Sloth Press for T-Spine Mobility & Shoulder Activation
Video by Hunter Britt

Looking for ways to improve your t-spine mobility while also incorporating proper activation? Then add in the Viking Sloth Press to your training routine to get those shoulders prepped and ready for the work ahead.

The Viking Sloth Press was introduced to us by our good friend Julien Pineau. We started using it in-house with our athletes more than a year ago with great success. Our suggestion would be to add these in at the beginning of your session for 5-7 reps for two sets.

Then add in the Viking Sloth Press to your training routine to get those shoulders prepped and ready for the work ahead. Our suggestion would be to add these in at the beginning of your session for 5-7 reps for two sets. The above video shows you how you can set up for the Viking Sloth Press with just a few pieces of equipment. The mobility benefits gained from this exercise are outstanding so don’t be a stranger to the Viking Sloth Press!

Focus on Mechanics: The Single-Arm Deadlift
Video by Hunter Britt

Use this version of the deadlift to focus on mechanics rather than weight. Focus on making sure you are not rotating during the movement by pulling back on the bar with the obliques to stay nice and straight. Use a strap if needed, we are not training grip here, rather we are focusing on avoiding mechanical failure. If you feel yourself rotating to make the lift, you have gone a little too heavy. Drop the weight back down and maintain perfect mechanics and posture throughout.
