I decided that doing a list of my favourite posts over the years would be a good idea.
This list includes the ones that I liked making the most, the ones I have used the most in practice, and also the most popular ones from my social media channels. To read the individual posts you can simply click on the image to be taken to it.
Before I get into the top 10, I like to make content that is useful for you, the reader. If there is a topic you would like me to make some content on, comment below or send me a message and I will do my best to make it for you.
So without further ado, here are my top 10 blog posts from over the years. I hope you enjoy them
This short foot exercise video is my most viewed video on You Tube with close on 30,000 views. This video shows one of my favourite exercises for the feet, called “Short foot”. Basically, it is an exercise to practice activating the muscles in the arch of your feet. This is really useful if you have flat feet or sore feet.
It is a lot harder than it looks, but well worth practicing to help ‘wake up’ your feet.
If you haven’t watched it, check it out and try the exercise.
– The hanging protocol
This video has been popular on You Tube, but is also one of my most recommended videos for people that I see in practice. It shows a protocol for helping shoulder pain and dysfunction.
If you didn’t know, I have hurt both my shoulders over the last 5 years and this is the protocol I used to help get over the injuries.
If you have shoulder pain, or just want to have healthier shoulders, then this is the perfect video to watch.
This is actually 2 videos, but they were part of a series that I did that was all about hanging for shoulder health. (Notice a trend here? Hanging must be important, haha).
The first video is all about passive hanging and the second video is about active hanging and combined these videos have around 17,000 views.
I find it hard to watch these videos now. The quality is not that great (I think I have got much better at making videos over the last few years) but the content is still really good.
This is probably the post that I refer the most people to. It’s shows my favourite ways to mobilize your mid back.
Lets face it, most of us don’t have great posture and one of the outcomes of poor posture and lots of computer work, is a stiff mid back.
These simple exercises can be great at helping to free it up (as well as a good chiropractic adjustment or course).
I have made a few blog posts on pillows over the years, and it is by far one of the leading searches online that brings people to my blog.
This old post is the most popular of those, and its all about how to choose a good pillow.
This post is also the basis behind my e-book “Your how-to guide for choosing the right pillow”. You can download this e-book from the home page if you are interested.
Having a good pillow is vital for a good night's sleep
In 2019, I was contacted by Sealy NZ to be their back care expert and write a post for them with information and tips on how to look after your back and get a good night’s sleep.
Sealy had found me through the blog and really liked my content so asked me to write one for them. I was really proud to be able to do this. Here is the link to the page at Sealy NZ.
I love this video because Bailey, my daughter, helped me out with it and she was a perfect model for the video. It was fun to make and the content is really relevant when you see kids trudging around with school bags that are obviously too heavy and aren't packed very well.
If you have kids at school, this is a good video to watch, and you can see how their bags compare.
This is another video I have used a lot in practice. It shows the 5 steps you need to go through to get into “good posture”, or as I like to call it, a "Neutral Position".
If you didn’t know, good posture starts from the ground up, and these 5 steps are needed to make sure you are in a good neutral alignment (or “good posture”).
This post is also one part of my e-book: 3 steps to better posture. If you want to read it, you can download it from the home page as well.
This is one of my favourite exercises you can do. The idea behind this exercise is that if you do it daily you will become less fragile, hence the name :)
Basically, it is a simple way of moving a lot of your joints in a short space of time, and it really makes you think about your movement.
I would highly suggest you try it if you haven’t seen it before.
P.S. This can also be fun to do with kids as well.
This is another of my favourite exercises you can do, especially if you sit in front of a computer all day.
It is a simple position to get into to help counteract the poor posture we often end up in if we are slouched over a computer or device.
If you do sit a lot at work, you need to know this position.
If you haven't had a good look through the older blogs, make sure you check them out.
