Got the tapered cut from @primephysiotherapy. Body hack: want to look athletic? Just tighten the shit out of your belt for an instant taper. It’s like spanks for powerlifters. Unfortunately these lats are just for decoration as I had a brutal day deadlifting. Couldn’t hit the RPE I was going for. Had to break up my sets. Drop weight. Drop reps. Looked as bad as they felt. But that’s part of the game, you don’t get to win every session but hopefully can take some positivity away at every opportunity. That’s life right? So even though I feel weak as shit, at least sometimes I look like I work out. If the lighting is right. And angles. And I’m wearing a belt. 🤷🏼♂️
Support small business continues! Collaboration with @state36clothingco and we couldn’t be happier! We’ll be giving these away soon...stay tuned. #supportlocal #bicepsforsmallbusinesses #latsforlocals

💥Sneak Peak💥 Out newest version of our ACL protocol will be published on our website this week! With 60 references and 20 pages worth of training templates, it might be a touch overkill. But like they always say, if you’re going to do something, do it excessively right?

When you find good people, you find a way to bring them into the family. Not the way we expected to start things, but starting things nonetheless! Happy to have this guy join our team! #Repost @emergestronger with @make_repost ・・・ Excited to announce I’m joining the @nevpt team! I’m so grateful to have found a group of like-minded clinicians who aren’t afraid to use barbells to help people through the rehab process 💪🏼 🔸🔸 #physicaltherapist #startingstrength #strengthandconditioning #emergestronger
...I’mma keep smiling. We’re all bored AF, keep it up everyone.
@wanulife is saving us over here. 6g fiber in each bottle, been nice to have another beverage choice other than coffee and IPAs. Delicious AND nutritious (and owned by Reno-local @dr_wanu) and you can get it delivered to your door! #supportlocal #butstayhome
Cabin fever setting in?? Go check out my good friend @pendolaproject ‘s podcast!! Covers a lot of great material on the athlete mindset, strength training for endurance athletes, and so much more! #supportlocal
Y’all talk about the athletes you treat but none of you have the #1 ranked Leonberger in the country coming in on the regular. Honestly, shit is stressful right now so enjoy a picture of the biggest (literally) best boi around. #ptswhopet
While everyone is doing their part and staying home to help flatten the curve, please remember the many small businesses that could use our love! I’ll tag many of my favorite below but here are some ways you can help: ☎️Order Online: Whether it’s new clothes, food, or locally made goods, many of these businesses will need online shopping love to come out of the other side. And don’t forget to tip the shit out of your to-go server. 📬Leave a Review: Whether it’s Google or Yelp (why not both?), small businesses rely on these platforms to drive new business towards them. Had a positive experience with your barber? Florist? Loved that locally made shirt? Tell the world! It helps far more than you know. You share your unsolicited opinions anyway, now you can do some good with that six-minute rant about your hair stylist being the ONLY one that touches those locks! 💇♀️ 🎁 Buy Gift Cards: If you can, buy gift certificates for the services that are locked down right now. These small gestures really (really) go a long way in helping small businesses have a chance to keep the lights on. AND you get to give a gift during this crisis. Double whammy! Nice work, you little sunbeam! 🌞 A few of my favorite local businesses (some aren’t on IG so you’ll have to google them the ol’fashioned way): @state36clothingco @beernv @performance_edu @seven31onforest @casablancaspanv @butcherboyreno @tuttoferro @sewonohandmade @acestattoo @americanirongym @burger_me @revisionbrewing @whisperingvine @eclipsepizzacompany Johnny’s Ristorante (to-go service out of La Cucina) and of course many more! #supportlocal
Sometimes @derek_barbellmedicine and I are not at breweries. This is not one of those times. Scroll for the rest. Gonna miss this guy when he moves east. @kimmyjmiles
Some heavier lifting. First video is 462 this week. Second video is 462 two weeks ago. Really focused on slowing my start down to keep better positioning. Bar moved slower but maintained better form. CNS fatigue has been real these last couple weeks so I’ll take it. Still working on this deadlift! 455 squat, 350 bench. 180lbs BW. Doing a mock meet this week! Then meet prep. #walkthewalk #ptswholift
💥Attention Reno! 💥 Nick recently moved to Reno and if you are looking for a PT who understands working with barbell athletes or really anyone trying to become their strongest self, I highly recommend him! Our community needs more clinicians and coaches like him. Hit him up! You’re welcome. @emergestronger #ptswholift #walkthewalk
What a weekend. #Repost @zakgabor.dpt with @get_repost ・・・ It’s a wrap! First CSM experience was an incredible one! Definitely overwhelming but we were lucky to have the two headed beast of a conference Sherpa in @derek_barbellmedicine and @nevpt. ⠀ The talks we got to were great - but the amount of connection and nerding out are far beyond the cost of admission. Everyone I got to hang with this weekend - appreciate you big time! ⠀ PS - major shoutout to allll @thelevelupinitiative community for showing love, coming to say hi, and the outpouring of support. The meetup Friday night still has me and Steph kinda speechless. Thanks to everyone who made this such a special few days. ⠀ #APTACSM #WhensBillyGettingHere?
CSM prep! I’m not speaking or anything. But always motivating to tighten up my research IQ so I can ask semi-intelligent questions over a half dozen pints with the academics. @derek_barbellmedicine @simplywillb @financial_physio See you soon! #csm2020
Had a patient last week come to me because “You compete, you get it” when we were discussing what it’s like to be injured or not be able to perform at the level you want, or maybe missing a big competition. I do get “it”. I’m here to push myself, to compete, to get better...but I must be cautious as well to not overly attach my identity to any ONE thing. Just like financial investments, I encourage you to take inventory on how diverse your “portfolio” is. If we attach too much of our identity to one facet of our person, we risk that identity being threatened which can contribute to an intense emotional experience for us or our patients. How much of your identity is attached to one thing? How would you handle it if that was taken from you? Anyway, here’s me overreaching the day after the Super Bowl. Called for a 5 rep max, last video was from the previous week where I hit 419x5 @ 8 pretty easily so decided to bump up the weight. This was 429x3/2. Was I frustrated? For sure. But came back and hit the last 2, realized the 7 IPAs the day before and mountain of shitty (delicious) food probably didn’t help and I moved on with my day. 🤷🏼♂️
Love seeing @slim.mijo back doing his thing. 🙌🏻. #Repost @nevadahoops with @get_repost ・・・ Can you think of a better way to get your 900th career point? Congrats @slim.mijo #BattleBorn
