Remember when Katy Perry grabbed Shawn Mendes’s butt on a red carpet last month? Well, apparently she made quite the impression, because Mendes simply can’t wait until their next rendezvous. _ The 18-year-old called in to BBC Radio 1 this morning to chat with Nick Grimshaw about his new single, “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back,” and his upcoming performance at Radio 1’s Big Weekend festival. Grimshaw graciously offered to play wingman and introduce Mendes to any other performers he may interested in dating. _ “We gotta find me a girlfriend,” Mendes agreed, and when Grimshaw asked about anyone in particular, the singer-songwriter answered, “Oh, Katy Perry, of course.” _ Hmm... wonder what Mendes’s idol (and Perry’s ex) John Mayer would think of that? _ In any case, if Mendes really wants to impress Perry, his new single is a good start. “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” is impossibly catchy and more danceable than anything in his catalog. His voice is gritty and hoarse, especially on the passionate, aggressive hook: “Oh I’ve been shaking- I love it when you go crazy- You take all my inhibitions- Baby there’s nothing holdin’ me back.” _ “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” is part of the deluxe edition of Illuminate, which Mendes re-released to include the new single. He’s slated to kick off his Illuminate World Tour in April, and will hopefully give us some epic performances of this perfectly summery new jam. _ by Madeline Roth: HOPEFULLY, SHAWN MENDES'S NEW SONG WILL GET HIM A DATE WITH KATY PERRY NEWS Remember when Katy Perry grabbed Shawn Mendes’s butt on a red carpet last month?

The great squat debate: toes forward or angled out? It's actually a trick question, the answer is both. Let me explain. The argument is simple. I believe ALMOST ALL OF US should have the capability to perform a bodyweight squat with the toes relatively straightforward (if you want to get nerdy 'neutral' means 5-7 degrees of toe out). We screen the squat this way to illuminate weak links we can work on. If you cannot squat this way, more than likely there are some things you need to work on (mobility for example). That being said, there will always be a few individuals who are simply unable to get into a deep squat position due to abnormal anatomical reasons (an excessive angle in the way the hip-femur align aka femoral anteversion is one example). With that said, most athletes should be able to reach ass to grass with a squat. I recommend turning your toes out SLIGHTLY when you squat with a barbell for optimal performance. As soon as you pick up a barbell, the squat now becomes an exercise. For this reason, there are slight changes in the movement pattern that are more “sport specific”. This includes turning the toes out slightly. Doing so creates a mechanical advantage for the squat. Not only does it give us a slightly wider base of support, but it does not challenge our pelvic control and mobility to the fullest extent. This means someone with mobility restrictions can squat deeper with a better technique elsewhere. This is the difference between the movement of the squat and the exercise. Screening should point out and illuminate limitations in how we move. Training should reinforce and strengthen our current movement capabilities. When coaching athletes, it’s your job to know the difference between screening and training. There's nothing wrong with barbell squatting with a forward foot, but it's not right for EVERYONES anatomy. __________________________________ Squat SquatUniversity Powerlifting weightlifting crossfit workout gym fit fitspo crossfitopen fitness squats training physicaltherapy strongman oly olympicweightlifting mobility: We squat with toes We squat with angled out... toes forward...
