Everything We Know About Training is Wrong.
We are all taught that muscles contract and relax. They get tight, relax, and produce force. This is true, but it’s not the whole story. We were all taught to strengthen the weak and stretch the tight, but we forgot to ask simple questions, like WHY is it weak, and WHY is it tight?
This is a workshop that goes through the basics that every trainer should know about injury post-rehab before working with their clients. It covers the most common conditions of the shoulder, hip, knee and spine, and gives directions on what to do and more importantly, what not to do with the specific injuries.
The concepts contained in Post Rehab Essentials have helped me get the following results for clients:
- Helped a client recover from hip replacement surgery to ski and golf in the same day
- Helped a client with massive pelvic and abdominal reconstructive surgeries deadlift almost twice her bodyweight within 1 year of surgery, pain free
- Re-built my own low back issues to deadlift pain free and even do the splits
- Help an Olympic gold medalist recover from a hip injury to prepare for the Sochi Olympics
- Help my wife get back into competitive triathlon following a series of SI joint injuries
- Get hundreds of clients out of pain and training with purpose once again
You’ll also get a massive hands-on sessions in each section with specific exercises and the technical breakdown on what they work, how to properly execute them and how to cue the client to get them into the right movement patterns. I’ve also included easy regressions and progressions for basic movements that everyone does incorrectly.
Here are some of the highlights I go through:
- Joint mechanics that show why some exercises will hurt you while others will help you.
- How most “rehab” programs aren’t tailored to specific needs of the individual and do nothing but eat up time.
- Why repetitive strain injuries are so common, and how to fix them forever
- Why static stretching is completely useless and should be stopped at all costs, especially when working through an injury
- Why pain doesn’t tell you the problem, and how to uncover the real issue
- How to dramatically increase the value of your training sessions and keep your clients longer
- How to get people strong. Period.
- How to perform complex lifts, assessments, and corrective exercises in a safe and effective manner.
