FORM LAB is MTNTOUGH’s new biomechanical baseline assessment program. Join powerlifting world champion and Tactical Strength Coach Major Donny Bigham as he coaches athletes through 14 foundational exercises to improve form, increase performance and prevent injuries for the long haul.
Establish your foundation first. Calibrating the proper alignment, posture and positioning is what separates potential injury from peak performance. MTNTOUGH’s FORM LAB provides a way for even the most seasoned backcountry or tactical athlete to hone and improve their techniques to crush it for the long haul.
Being mountain ready is about form as well as function. And correct form is the key to preventing injuries, optimizing performance and conserving energy. No one wants to be at a disadvantage when faced with a steep climb or heavy pack-out, which is why MTNTOUGH partnered with retired U.S. Army Major and world-champion powerlifter Donny Bigham to bring you a way to obtain a baseline assessment and biomechanical analysis of 12 of the most common exercises.
More weight and more reps could only hurt you if done improperly. Use FORM LAB to fix your weaknesses now so you can continually improve your performance and prevent new injuries from occurring. In these fully-coached videos, Major Bigham provides detailed prescriptions on how to correct deficiencies in movements like deadlifts, bench presses, lunges, pull-ups, kettlebell snatches, squats, sprinting, running, and moving under axial load.
When was the last time you analyzed your movement patterns?
That’s not a rhetorical question. Do it today.
