Episode At A Glance:

This week on The SavvyCast, I am joined by my son-in-law, Sean Hiller, to discuss the three most important and fundamental exercises. Sean is a PT, DPT, CSCS, and the owner of Vulcan Performance Rehabilitation and Recovery. In this episode, Sean shares just why these movements are so vital to our health as well as how to do them properly. 

Who Is Sean Hiller?

Vulcan is a one-on-one physical therapy company with their methodologies based in strength, conditioning, and fitness.

The Three Archetypal Movements That Yield The Greatest Health ROI:

  1. Hinge/Deadlift- This is the foundation of all movement and therefore the most fundamental movement! These can be as simple as deadlifting kettlebells in your garage. Deadlifting teaches us how to brace our core and control our spine.
  2. Squats - Squats are the second most fundamental movement and teach us how to brace our core while we move our hips through space.
  3. Overhead press - These can help combat bad posture, especially a tendency to hunch over. Overhead presses are vitally important for the health of our entire upper bodies. 

If you have any questions about these movements or general injury questions, you can learn more from Sean and Vulcan on Instagram @vulcanmovement and @seanhiller_physio or check out Vulcan’s website here www.vulcanmovement.com. Feel free to email or message them with questions!
