Joining us today is Canadian Posturologist Annette Verpillot.  Annette has worked with some of the biggest names in strength and conditioning including Ben's friend and mentor the great Charles Poliquin.  Annette's approach to aligning posture through the eyes, mouth and feet has garnered a reputation for its effect of immediate strength increases of up to 50 percent.  In this episode we discuss what good posture means, the nuances to aligning it and the incredible effects it has on the nervous system, neurochemistry, and endocrine function.
