“I’ve never felt stronger”: Chris Hemsworth pens introduction to new training book after using the techniques to target back pain and strength exercises
He's the extremely buff actor who is known for his role of Thor in the successful Marvel franchise. And Chris Hemsworth took to social media on Friday to reveal the secret to maintaining his gruelling workouts, crediting it all to a book that he has written an introduction for. The 32-year-old gushed about the tome, titled True To Form, by Dr. Eric Goodman, writing: 'If you've ever suffered from back pain or want a stronger healthier body then check this book out.'

Good-bye back pain, hello improved posture. Foundation Training founder Eric Goodman’s simple exercise plan gets results fast. Good posture isn’t just for finishing-school grads and pageant contestants. Strengthening the posterior chain of muscles that allows you to stand straight and tall helps you look more vital and youthful, and is the basis of a strong and pain-free back. Anyone who has suffered through back pain will tell you there is nothing quite as debilitating. Like many chefs (and TV personalities) I spend hours on my feet, which can leave me with a sore back on occasion. So I was intrigued when I heard through the grapevine about an exercise program that not only improves your posture, but can relieve acute back
When you arrive at Dr. Eric Goodman‘s Carpenteria home and Foundation Training base camp, you’re instantaneously at ease. It’s mostly the super-relaxed vibe Goodman and his business partners/friends emanate as they stroll barefoot along the patio. (The dogs running up and down the stairs have a little to do with it, too.) Or it might be the fact that his whimsical home is tucked away behind Hass avocado fields, a good distance off the Pacific Coast Highway where the rustling leaves and treetop view make you forget about the California traffic. Whatever the reason, you’re damn happy to be there. And that’s what Goodman’s revolutionary Foundation Training is all about: being happy. By isolating your back muscles with exercises employed to

It’s one of the reasons why I wanted to go to medical school, as I intended to use exercise as a therapeutic modality to improve people’s health. I eventually shifted more to using nutrition as my primary tool, because I realized the fuel you provide your body is really crucial to obtain optimal health. But you really cannot be optimally healthy without exercise. More recently, I’ve become convinced that non-exercise movement, i.e. the way we move when performing normal everyday tasks, may actually be the most important component of exercise. Dr. Eric Goodman is an emerging pioneer and superstar in the world of
By Devon McGregor - For several weeks leading up to October 10th, I had been looking forward to my trip to New York. And, although I have visited this great city that is home to Lady Liberty and nearly 8.5 million of her citizens on many occasions before, this experience, I knew, would be special. I don’t often use the word REVOLUTIONARY lightly. That kind of word is usually reserved to describe Apple’ iconic products. Never before have I used that word to describe a fitness modality. However, FOUNDATION TRAINING is, in my opinion, revolutionary. Created by Dr. Eric Goodman, an easy to like Californian, Foundation Training (FT) “is a series of exercises based on integrating the muscular chains of the body.” Dr.
By Dr. Eric Goodman If you are reading this, congratulations, you made it. You have lived through the entire year of 2012, and avoided yet another potential apocalypse. What I find most fascinating about all of the end-of-the-world hype we saw in the days leading up to December 21, 2012, is how easily we humans are able to create complex and dire explanations for things that more often than not end up following very basic principles. I see this pattern every day in my work with athletes and clients who are seeking to improve performance or reduce pain. Rather than focusing on building up a solid foundation and layering from there, they sometimes become derailed by complex strategies, "state of the art"
By Traver H. Boehm - It’s the unfortunate state of our sport. Ask any physical therapist, chiropractor, or acupuncturist what they think of CrossFit and the reply is usually, “I love CrossFit, they keep me in business.” Ouch. I don’t believe CrossFit is inherently dangerous, especially if taught by intelligent, experienced coaches. However, CrossFit is brilliant at pointing out people’s natural, athletic, structural, and muscular deficiencies. As coach Eric Malzone says, “CrossFit is going to let you know all of the ways that your regular life has screwed you up physically.”Unfortunately, it often does this through an injury. Malzone and I actually own a CrossFit gym together, and we’ve had our fair share of “gurus” walk in and present their new-fangled gadgets and modalities. Oh wow, you’ve combined muay Thai, Zumba, yoga,
By Dr. Joseph Mercola - According to recent research, if Americans cut back on the amount of time spent sitting down, it could add years to their life expectancy. Unfortunately, most people spend a large portion of each day in a seated position. It's hard to avoid these days, as computer work predominates, and most also spend many precious hours each week commuting to and from work. Sitting Takes a Heavy Toll on Health The study estimates that reducing the average time you spend sitting down to less than three hours a day could increase your life expectancy by two years. Reducing the time you spend watching TV to less than two hours a day could increase it by 1.4 years. As reported by NBC News: "'The
