Episode 64: Two Communities, One Mission: Coming Together For Something Special



This episode is a little different.
 
As some of you may know, ClinicalAthlete has joined forces with The Level Up Initiative to put together a special educational experience – the CALU Summit, on Sept 18-20, 2020.
 
It goes without saying, that the year of 2020 has required all of us to pivot. The Summit was no exception.
 
This podcast is all about what it means for the communities of ClinicalAthlete and Level Up to join forces and pursue this mission together. 
 
We talk about the importance of a cohesive team, how to deal with hardships along the way, why it’s important to keep an agile approach to planning, and why the CALU Summit is different. 
 
Yes, you will get all the deets about the event itself in this episode from the unique model that we’ve created, to our amazing line up of presenters and sponsors; but you’ll also get a behind the scenes look at what it takes to put something like this on, and what it means to work within a Mission-Driven Team.

Episode 63: A Talk With World Class Powerlifting Coaches Matt Gary and Sioux-z Hartwig-Gary



What are the guiding principles that new strength & conditioning professionals should focus on to give their best to their athletes? How do seasoned coaches handle the pressures of coaching at the top level? How important is self-care for the coach, and setting goals and expectations for the athlete? What does all of this look like? 
 
Not to worry… We’ve brought on world-class powerlifting and strength coaches Matt Gary and Sioux-z Hartwig-Gary to talk about all of this. Matt and Sioux-z have over 50 years of combined coaching and competitive experience (oh and Sioux-z is a world champion herself) at all levels. Anyone who thinks of themselves as a “coach” will take so much away from this episode. Enjoy!

Episode 60: The Case for Retiring Flexibility as a Major Component of Physical Fitness with Dr. Jim Nuzzo



Is flexibility testing valid? What evidence is it even founded on? Should it be retired as a major component of physical fitness? Should we de-emphasize static stretching in exercise prescriptions? We discuss these things and more with Dr. Jim Nuzzo, who recently wrote a thought-provoking paper on the topic.

Episode 45: Reconciling Biomechanics with Pain Science with Greg Lehman



Awareness of the ‘science of pain’ seems to have increased over the last several years (a good thing!). With the understanding that “psychosocial” factors may play a role in the experience of pain, what role does biomechanics play? Do biomechanics matter in terms of managing the pain experience for our athletes? If so, how and when? We discuss these things and more with internationally recognized clinician and educator, Greg Lehman.
