Episode 62: “It’s the Quadz Until It’s Not The Quadz” Part 2: All Things Knee & Science with Erik Meira, PT.



When it comes to treating the knee, what’s important? Why does Erik say the quad is king? Does the hip matter? Can we ‘change movement’ to decrease risk? Why do athletes choose “risky” movement patterns? What about valgus…. So many questions, so little time.. Erik is here to help.

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 59: The Athlete’s Story: Training with a Chronic Injury and The Lessons Learned Along The Way, with Bryce Krawczyk



This show is a bit unique. In this episode, we interview Bryce Krawczyk, who is an elite powerlifter. The topic of the discussion is the recurrent injury that Bryce has dealt with over the past several years, and the things he’s learned along the way. There are important and valuable lessons in this one, for anyone who trains for any physical activity, at any level.

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.

Episode 44: Injuries in Powerlifting: Crunching The Numbers with Andrew Patton



How prevalent are injuries in powerlifting? Is there a difference between male and female? Does having a pre-existing training limitation increase your risk of injury? Are there other risk factors to consider? We ask these questions and discuss the answers with PhD candidate Andrew Patton, as he dissects his longitudinal study on powerlifting injures.

Episode 42: The Rise of the Masters Athlete: Redefining what it means to be “older” with Christina Prevett



Is training and rehab for our Masters athletes really that much different? What are the common misconceptions and legitimate considerations when working with our older athletes? We welcome Christina Prevett, MScPT, PhD(c) onto the show to discuss these topics and more!

Episode 40: Overhead Lifting For Athletes with Marcos Soriano



Are weightlifting overhead derivatives useful for athletes who are not competitive weightlifters? What do we really mean when we say force output, rate of force, and impulse of force? Can the push press and jerk carry over to our ability to jump? Is there an argument for the use over overhead derivatives versus the bench press for upper body strength in athletes? We discuss these things and more with sports scientist Marcos Soriano.

Episode 38: The Nordic Hamstring Curl, Screening, and Injury Risk: What We Know with Dr. Nicol van Dyk



What does the current evidence tell us about the effects of Nordic Hamstring Curl on injury rates? What does injury “prevention” really mean, and what factors should we consider to decrease risk? We discuss these things and much more with clinical researcher Dr. Nicol van Dyk.
