Balancing on one leg while doing scaptions. Yah or nah?
why would you want to do that?
I'd want to have both feet on the ground so I can get a more stable base...
Wow... it's pretty clear she has NO IDEA what the hell scaptions are for (which is the supraspinatus btw).
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

Is there some school of thought out there now being taught to all these personal trainers that says that EVERYTHING must be performed while standing on one leg? I get the desire to work one's "core" but why not just do exercises that work your core? It's not like there isn't enough exercises that fit the bill.
It is currently a fad, at this writing, for boys to think they need a "six pack", although most of them don't have an ice chest to put it in.
