Powerful Tip for Better Pistols

Watch this video to figure out how I was able to learn pistols on my weaker left leg.

Another reason why keeping your first metatarsal was explained to me through an e-mail by Senior RKC Geoff Neupert. Geoff says the following:

"Also, another reason to keep the big toe down is the flexor hallicus longus runs from the big toe to the tibia - it is an ankle plantar flexor. But when the foot is down, like in the pistol, and the knee comes forward, it is stretched. It then becomes a knee extensor - as it contracts it pulls the tibia back on top of the ankle, therefore acting on the knee from below..."

The Controvery over "Balance Training"

While in Phoenix last weekend visiting my twin brother Keats Snideman, we were able to briefly interview him about the topic of "balance training." Keats dispelled many of the myths in the fitness industry and gave some great advice on how we might improve balance and overall athleticism.

Watch and let me know your thoughts!

I am also excited that he will be attending the RKC in San Diego this August. It will be awesome to have him in the RKC family!!!
