Working Out – Tim Ferriss’s Pre-Hab Regiment and PT Feedback

In early October I got a neck injury that put me out of Krav for a few months. This presented a perfect opportunity to try out Tim Ferriss’s pre-hab regiment in his 4 Hour Body. It’s a set of exercises meant to help build core balance in unstable positions designed by trainer extraordinaire and athlete recovery expert Gray Cook.

There are four basic exercises to the routine: Chops, Lifts, Single Leg Deadlifts, and Turkish Get-Ups. After an initial check, if there’s an imbalance, the weaker side gets three extra sets. The routine is performed twice a week. (Note: I also did snatch practice without weights and body-weight squats.)
