I have a really simple way that we can tweak our programming to increase power development. And it’s is backed up with scientific evidence that shows you can get a quick increase in power, as well as enhance it even more by training this way over time. Want to know what it is?
I’m really excited to be launching my brand new course for rehabilitation and fitness professionals looking to help people restore, optimize, and enhance performance. It’s my Introduction to Performance Therapy Training course. And you know what the best part is??? It’s absolutely FREE! I want to help. When we started our facility at Champion PT and Performance, one of our biggest goals was to develop a simple system for our physical therapists and strength coaches to help people move and perform better. My Introduction to Performance Therapy and Training program will teach you our 4-step system at Champion to assure you have everything you need to start helping people move and perform better.

Online training has grown in popularity in recent years, and for good reason. It dramatically increases your ability to help others reach their goals from only those within a 5-mile radius of your gym to people anywhere in the world. We built out the start of our Champion online training platform over a year ago and recently updated it. We spent the year learning, tweaking, and evolving. Along the way, we learned a bunch. If you want to build an epic online training service that maximizes its effectiveness, retention, and scalability then there are 3 major keys that we feel you have to master. One of the people we learned a ton from is Jon Goodman. Jon runs the PTDC and the Online Trainer Academy. We sat down with Jon during a recent visit to Boston to discuss these 3 keys, and a bunch more. Check out our interview and read more about our 3 keys in this article.

There are still a lot of misconceptions about running and how to best train runners to minimize injuries and enhance performance.
Let’s simplify running a little more.
Running is a series of little jumps. The rear leg has to propel the body forward. The stride leg has to absorb force.
To minimize your chance of running related injuries and enhance your running performance, you need to understand both of these concepts.
The key to both of these is strength training. We can build tissue capacity to handle these forces much more efficiently, especially if we build a specific strength training program for runners with these two concepts in mind.
I discuss this and so much more in my latest article featuring an excellent interview I did with running guru Chris Johnson.
We’ve come along way over the last decade when it comes to training the core. Not too long ago, training the core consisted of mainly exercises like sit ups, with no specific attention to how the core functions.
One of the key areas of core training that I focus on to enhance movement quality and performance is stabilizing the core while the arms and legs move. Essentially proximal stability, with underlying distal mobility of the extremities.
However, don’t forget that the body is amazing at compensating to get the job done.
Any lack of mobility or motor control will often result in compensatory movements. Many people want to fly through their core program, but often times don’t focus on the quality of the movement.
Here are 5 common core exercise mistakes that I see, along with some suggestions on how to fix them. I posted these as a series on Instagram, if you want to see more posts like this, be sure to follow me there.
