barbell hip thrust cues with Annie Miller

Heyo! I thought I’d do a little quarterly review and planning episode recapping quarter 1 over at Annie Miller Concepts.

sumo deadlift cues from coach Annie Miller

Here’s the deal, Instagram can be great. Platforms are neutral things. We then assign good, bad, or any other label you like to them. IG is literally the ONLY app I personally spend time on.

Annie Miller discusses keeping profit high in your biz

The deadlift might be one of the most feared and poorly performed lifts in globo gyms, crossfit boxes, and garage gyms everywhere.

10 go-to exercises for strength and hypertrophy by Annie Miller

Want nice shoulders? Bench press. Want a stronger chest? Bench press. Want stronger pulling? Bench press. Want to get big ol’ tiddies? …get implants.
