#whut First off, sitting probably isn’t your problem (if you have one). It’s potentially being in any one position for too long. Sitting is metabolically efficient (so is slouching, that’s why we do it). Second: “natural” movement? Since when is balancing on a wobble board natural? #stopdiscriminatingagainstchairs
These are some of my favorite* researchers all in one place. *Mostly because we all crammed into a 12 ft wide watering hole in New Orleans and made a sizeable economic contribution to @erinrosebar in the name of science. But I digress: “The clinical examination process for determining biomechanical dysfunction continues to be unreliable, relates poorly to clinical outcomes, and demonstrates a poor association with reliable and accurate mechanical measures as well as with magnetic resonance imaging.” #nosillyBS
I don’t know why people still ask me to present. It’s just an excuse for me to rant about my biases and make non-sequitur references nobody thinks are funny. Also, I’ve managed to use this photo in almost every presentation I’ve given. Am I projecting? Probably. #ABertEinstein #MarkE(mc2)Mark #niiiice
@steficohen this was largely my point last week. #repost @clinicalathlete with @get_repost ・・・ Is there a such thing as normal range of motion, or is normal simply specific to the task? Are there truly prospective risk factors related to range of motion and injury, or should we simply be making sure our athletes have adequate range of motion for the task, then build load tolerance in said positions?⠀ ⠀ These were questions posed in the #ClinicalAthleteForum by #ClinicalAthleteStudent member @max_demartino.⠀ ⠀ We've got a great discussion going in there now, but we want to know your thoughts too! Whatcha think?
Sad day in powerlifting. @kk_powerlifting To hear the kind words people have shared about him across the sport is inspiring. A constant reminder that every day is a gift. #konstantinkonstantinovs
Good luck to our boy @camzink as he competes in #redbullrampage next week! Go get ‘em bud! 👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻
💥Trigger Warning💥 Lumbar flexion! When we talk about lifting from the floor, we work on keeping a stiff neutral spine to improve efficiency transferring power from the floor to your hands. That works great when the weight is ideally shaped and positioned. But if you’ve ever picked up a child out of crib, you know that ain’t happening. So what does matter?? The ability to brace and most importantly, your chronic workload. Are you adequately adapted to the task at hand?? No movement is inherently bad. It’s often a question of adaptation. Are you ready?? #Repost @thorbjornsson with @get_repost ・・・ Trying out my new 231kg/509lbs Atlas Stone. I’ve never needed to do more than 210kg Atlas Stone in competition so technically this is a PB! @thorspowerprogram @australianstrengthcoach @thorspowergym
The best part about social media is that if you say something stupid, smart people will call you on your shit. Great post, Rich! Repost @pt_reviewer with @get_repost ・・・ This is shameful @rocktape. You’re better than this sorta nonsense. 🔵 1) Elseveir is a publisher and not a journal. 🔵 2) The page on your website where you send viewers to you “view this study” there isn’t even a link included. 🔵 3) I found the study (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0306987718302007?via%3Dihub) Which was published in “Medical Hypotheses” which is a journal that for 35 years of its existence didn’t include a peer review process. The current review process now still isn’t exactly clear. This is also the journal that included publications on AIDS denialism. This journal prides itself on publishing ridiculous and outlandish claims that wouldn’t hold up to the typical scrutiny found in most journals. 🔵 4) This study is so poorly conducted and poorly powered to make these claims it’s laughable. I’m honestly shocked that this got published save for the fact that it’s included in this bogus journal. There are seven total patients. There are no reports of baseline characteristics such as BMI or comorbid status. Their reporting of autonomic variables is woefully insufficient. 🔵 5) The authors of the study teach proprietary courses Ktaping which should raise some suspicions especially given how this paper basically reads like an advertisement. Fortunately, they disclosed it. 🔵 6) There are seven references for this pilot study two of which are what appear to be websites for K Taping. 🔵 I am all for novel claims but “this ain’t it chief”
Nice little Saturday smoking brisket and small batch beers. And debates, of course. @mderek4011
Despite the minimization of the multi-factorial aspects of injury, I don’t disagree with any of this, necessarily. I also don’t think walking in end-range inversion prevents ankle sprains but 🤷🏼♂️. I do, however, find the “in my opinion” after “science” bit...odd. Science doesn’t care about your opinion. That’s why it’s science. I wish these posts would start with “in my opinion” so I could stop reading them earlier. Anyway, happy Friday! #Needabeer
What does your PT clinic look like? Is it a gym? Is it a clinic? Yes. Changing your body takes hard work and time. Don’t waste either on suboptimal care. #physicaltherapy #barbellmedicine
Follow the link in our bio for our Ultimate (Randy Savage Voice) Shoulder Guide! This is my exact warm up for pressing days! Let us know what you think. And sorry for the swipe up, we’re not cool enough for that feature (yet). #crossfit #benchpress #powerlifting #rockclimbing
Even though I’m older and objectively better looking than @mderek4011 and @michael.ray.dc, I consider them both mentors and good friends. No two people have had a larger influence on our rehab model. If you’ve been dealing with pain that no one seems to understand and it’s keeping you from lifting, come see us. And congrats to @sarah.alkhayyal for finding some answers and getting her life back! #Repost @sarah.alkhayyal with @get_repost ・・・ THREE HUNNIT FAM 🌲 We made it! 300 for a huge post back pain PR. . 2.5 years ago, a 345lb axel deadlift in a Strongman show left me with severe and persistent back pain. (Swipe to see that deadlift!) What might have been an acute injury, had I been well-informed, turned into chronic pain that plagued me for nearly 2 years. . If you’ve been around for awhile, you know my story: I tried *everything*. PT, chiropractic, ART, bodybuilding style training, not training at all, McGill big 3– I did it all. . So what got me back to where I am, after 2 years of chronic back pain? The biopsychosocial approach to treatment. I absorbed information from article upon article upon book upon podcast about the complexity of pain and how psychological and social facets of your life factor into physical pain (pro tip: check the link in my bio for a collection of some of these resources). Approaching pain from a strictly biological/physical standpoint is not only scientifically outdated but also harmful. . How we talk about spines and about back pain needs to change. Step ☝🏽: Your back is resilient. Do not let a fearmonger lead you to believe otherwise. Step ✌🏽: Movement is medicine. Especially when it’s loaded movement, i.e. the barbell. If you have a doctor that tells you to stop squatting/deadlifting/[insert lift here] to heal your pain, be critical of their opinion. Hire @austin_barbellmedicine , @mderek4011 or @michael.ray.dc, or find someone in the @clinicalathlete network to see. . I’m stepping off my soapbox for today, but here’s another hooray for reaching this milestone! 💃🏽 And big thank you to @colin.lamberttt for always being the best hype man there is.
#fridayfeels This is a high compliment!

Had a great meeting discussing research proposals, PT/PhD developments, the future of @nevpt and academic pursuits on Friday. Also, if you want to schedule a meeting with me, it’ll probably be at @revisionbrewing so choose the time of day wisely.
@greglehman Well that’s awesome. With @gabbetttim I’m amassing a small yet distinguished following. Where I mostly regurgitate their own teachings. Now if I could just lure @austin_barbellmedicine @jordan_barbellmedicine @adammeakins and @gregnuckols in... C’mon guys, if you’re looking for blatantly stolen content, awful jokes and pictures of dogs and beer (and sometimes physical therapy) look no further. #gottacatchemall

One of our favorite warm-up drills for pressing days. Maintain a braced torso, band is assistance, meaning it’s helping, not doing all the work! Extend arm as far back as you can, almost to the point of cramping, bend the elbow and reach as high as you can behind the back. Hold for a 2 count and repeat 10x ea side. DM me for our complete shoulder warm-up guide! #powerlifting #crossfit #shoulderwarmup
