Just got an email from Tim and Geoff that they plan on a new book in October of 2015 that is a major updated/revised version of the first OS book.

Sounds great!

Just a quick heads up - we’re preparing to launch our new and

improved book: “Pressing RESET: Original Strength Reloaded.”



It’s an updated version of the original Original Strength book. In

fact, it barely resembles the original.



It’s a summation of all the additional learning we’ve had from

each other and our workshops and our clients since we published

the original book in 2012.

I can't wait. In a discussion on Indian clubs, I think Anna C mentioned noticing in her training log that whenever her shoulders got tight, she also realized she had stopped swinging.
OS has been that for me. Whenever past injuries start to flare up again, I notice its because I stopped doing OS as regularly. Why'd I stop? Well, because it was working and I wasn't feeling pain or discomfort anymore :/ "Things are going so well help me screw it up"

All I know is the deeper I get into OS (loaded crawling for example) the better all my other lifts are. Doing OS has improved my overall strength so much I don't think I would ever stop using it.

Tim has so many books on OS, what have you guys found as the best daily routine? Do you use a warm up, daily mobility, cool down or all of the above?

^ You can use OS as your conditioning work, warmup or cooldown.. or all of the above..

certain resets work best for certain purposes per individual so don't hesitate to experiment

morrisda, I personally use reset flows as a warmup and often do 10 minutes of crawling for conditioning

I Press Reset daily. Mostly sets of Rocking,Neck Nods,Dead Bugs,Cross Crawls
3 days a week are my KB training sessions.
2 days a week my whole session is OS. Starts with pressing reset and then I do lots of crawling. Lately all leopard crawls and I am trying to get to 10 minutes without rest. Up to 6 right now. Sometimes I also throw on the harness and drag kettlebells or my 70# chain for a ab beat down.

Hope that gives you an idea.

Any harness recommendations? Am I looking for something that loads the hips or the shoulders?

I'm looking to recommend something to my parents. Has anyone had personal success themselves, or with clients north of 55 using Original Strength?

Thanks!

While waiting for my OS loop to arrive, I am using a sled harness and dip belt to load my chains

Ok Pulled the trigger on 90 some lbs of chain and the infinity harness. Looking forward to it!

BTW: A big theme in original strength is stimulating the vestibular system. That reminded me of the recommendation (I think in S&S?) to do some of your getups blinded. It requires listening to you vestibular system a whole lot to keep your balance! I plan on getting back into the habit of working these into my S&S. I wonder if anyone has experimented with closing the eyes on OS resets?

Hey Travis,

Tim Anderson published a book this year I believe where he talks much more about regressions to the resets. In addition I highly recommend their YouTube channel Original Strength. There he publishes weekly new ideas and modifications to try out.

About Original Strength.
I have been reading and trying lots of stuff over the last decade and rarely I discover something that makes a difference. Original Strength does make a difference. I like to do the resets daily. When I lift I do them before, during and afterwards. It just feels good and I found that it helps me to move better be it in lifting or dancing.

Just wonderful stuff that feels really good.

Certain Resets will effect everyone differently. I know for me lots of Dead Bugs and Leopard Crawling forward/backward has really improved my strength everywhere.
