Welcome to the Foundation Five
Life should be simple; so should your exercise routine.
Doing the Foundation Five well is the most concise way we know to maintain your body over time and resist life’s insults large and small. In the context of your own home, in 20-30 minutes per day, you will improve your physical capacity regardless of ability level.
Please know in advance that no matter how fit or unfit you are, the F5 will challenge you. Almost every individual in western society has maladaptive domesticated patterns (e.g. a hunch). In the case of athletes this is often more extreme, as these patterns have been hardened by countless hours of high intensity training. Training is always imbalanced unless one is truly and completely ambidextrous.
All F5 movements require control of neutral positioning of the pelvis, neck and shoulders. You are ready to move to the next level of difficulty once you have mastered control of these positions and can complete 25 nine-count repetitions of a movement.

- prevent future injuries?
- ease lower back and neck pain?
