Charles Poliquin Beats Up Mark “Smelly” Bell
Charles Poliquin was the man among meatheads back when T-Nation first started! I still remember meeting him once in the days of yesteryear, when I convinced my then employer, the City of Chattanooga Parks & Recreation, that I needed to attend the Perform Better seminar. He was actually the person who told me about T-Nation which was then called testosterone.net. Enough reminiscing!

He also explains how acupressure works in conjunction with standard mobility work. After watching this, I might have to give this another look.
