The basics are everything. Maybe calling them the basics doesn't really emphasize how important the basics are. Maybe we should come up with a new way to label what posture, the squat, the deadlift and the press are. Let's call them the all mighty important things one must master in order to lead a long healthy fruitful life in the sun.  A bit much? Maybe, but it's kinda true. Ok, we'll just call them the foundation of all great movement (much more catchy if I say so myself). To revisit the last time I spoke of this, we touched on the idea that without great posture all other movement will begin in a flawed manor. Posture means your head is in good position, shoulders are pulled back and down, rib cage is down with your ass in, glutes are engaged causing engagement of those pesky arches (which not many pay much attention to due to the assumption a flattened foot is a death sentence only cured by arch support and really intensely cushioned shoes). If you always start with that, great posture you are already set up for success. A few pointers you will hear about the squat, deadlift and press movements below:
The squat-lead with your hips, set that back angle like you have a bar on your back and when your back angle is set pull that ass down to those heels hit the hole squeeze that ass again and stand up.
The deadlift-top load, legs-hips-hips-legs, knees never move while the hips are moving and vice versa the hips never move when the knees are in motion.
The press- active shoulders, rib cage down ass in and load over rear shoulder.
There is one more thing that I forgot about that falls in to the foundation of all great movement category, mobility but that's for another night. (That doesn't mean don't do it though. Do it. )
