On today's episode, I address one of the most commonly asked questions in all of strength and conditioning and that is the question of "What is the single best exercise for performance gains?". I receive this question or some other variation of this question all of the time. I understand that people's curiosity of this question is brought on by trying to make sense of the overwhelming amount of information in the performance world and that is why I wanted to do an episode covering this topic.

Topics covered:

· Understanding the programming of a particular athlete based on athlete's needs

· Understanding the specific program and movements involved

· Why an exercise is not delivering performance gains

· How an exercise should be applied

· No program comes down to one exercise

· Integration of an exercise program

· Understanding situation, circumstance, and setting of an athlete
