No PR's to report today, but I did watch an awesome movie over the weekend that in my opinion didn't get enough love while it was at the box office. Did you see the trailers for No Escape with Owen Wilson and Pierce Bronsnan?

No worries I got you covered!

Are you thinking "man that looks intense?"

Because it was and I'd highly recommend you taking a couple of hours to view it.

I know most people are pretty polarized on their opinion of Owen Wilson as an actor and he has made most of his career out of being a goofball I think he does a fantastic job of portraying what I can only imagine it would be like to be a father and husband in this kind of scenario.

Granted in real life you wouldn't happen to luck into meeting an undercover foreign operative who saves your ass, but I mean c'mon it's a movie.

I promise this film will have you on the edge of your seat and yelling at the tv before it's all said and done.

Other than that I don't have much to report so let's discuss this week's list of stuff to read!

1. Serratus Anterior Activation: Reach, Round, and Rotate by Eric Cressey

The serratus anterior just doesn't get any respect, but it is so damn important for optimal shoulder function.

This was really driven home for me and my business partner this past year when we saw Tony Gentilcore present on the topic for an entire day in St. Louis.

The next day we were both grabbing our sides and wondering how we could have neglected something so essential.

However despite the importance of this muscle in proper shoulder function it can be tough to get people to actually use it, but no worries because Eric has got us covered there!

2. 5 Mobility Exercises You've Probably Never Done, But Should by Dean Somerset

I don't know about you, but improving my joint ranges of motion and improving my control over those ranges of motion has been the biggest focus on the last 6 months and it has paid off big time.

I think we can't overestimate the importance of putting in more and more work on our mobility the older we get and more routine our lives becomes.

It's as simple as you either use it or you lose it and incorporating regular mobility circuits is a great way to make sure you keep using it.

Give these drills a once over.

3. Can I Do That by Neghar Fonooni

I tell you what if I ever meet Neghar in person I am going to give her one kickass high-five because the stuff she keeps writing is everything I think everyone needs to hear and what's even better is that she is sharing this wisdom from a deep place of understanding and experience.

This is another great story about her most recent endeavor of joining a Crossfit gym and what learning double unders showed her.

Happy moving and heavy lifting!
