Introducing the 5 Pillars of Strength

Strength is for everyone.  Every single person can benefit from strength.  But to get you strong, we first need to make sure you move properly.   A good house always has a solid foundation.

The SVPT way is mastering the strength basics, and building the foundation.  Building a solid foundation of proper movement ensures great mechanics for more complicated lifts, injury prevention, and above all else a more adventurous life!  We build you up from the ground up by getting you do the basics exceptionally well.

So, what are the basic strength movements that we get our clients to master, to help build that foundation?

  • Hip Hinge
  • Push (Vertical and Horizontal)
  • Pull (Vertical and Horizontal)
  • Squat
  • Loaded Carries

Once our clients have mastered these basics, in a unilateral (one arm/one leg) and bilateral  (two arms/two legs) form, we progress them to more complex movements and lifts.
