Re: Both shoulders injured, advice?

Re: Sudden knee pain, no obvious cause... thoughts?

Generally because the issue is a weakness not an instability, why brace something and prevent it from getting strong when you can strengthen it and fix it :).

Re: Anybody heard of the "Turkish Get Up" exercise?

If TGU is more of a circus trick, or "dumb exercise" then why, as the story goes, did the old strongmen/weightlifters make the newbies work up to 100# on each arm before they could start lifting...
