2016 Sports Rehab to Sports Performance Teleseminar

I say this every year, but once again my friend Joe Heiler from Sports Rehab Expert is putting together an awesome teleseminar series with some of the world’s top professionals in sports rehabilitation and performance training known as the 2016 Sports Rehab to Sports Performance Teleseminar.

Sports Rehab Expert

The series starts this coming Tuesday (March 8th) at 8pm EST, and will feature a new guest speaker each week. The best part is that the interviews are completely FREE.

Each Tuesday Joe will email you a link where you can catch the interviews. You don’t need to be online at the time of the call to get access to it. The interviews will be recorded and available for another 2 weeks from that point.

I like these interviews because they always dive into a lot of content; they’re not just glorified sales pitches. I actually have a playlist on my phone that has a lot of interviews from the last 7 years that I’ll return back to during my drive in from work or on flights.

Possibly because of my unbridled enthusiasm for this series, this year Joe asked me to be a guest.
In the interview we discuss:
  • Why a lot of people are missing the boat when training to prevent injuries
  • Training methods that have fallen out of favor in the last 8 years (including some of the limitations of concurrent periodization, and why tabata’s are ridiculous)
  • Why you should never ask if an exercise is “good” again
  • The biggest challenge I face in coaching athletes
  • The current research on hockey hip injuries, and a case study of how I helped a Division 1 collage player stave off surgery
  • How we set up our business to allow us to successfully implement individualized programs in a group setting
Check out the rest of this year’s line-up!

  1. Charlie Weingroff – developing training systems with Canada basketball, ‘one shot – one kill’ using the SFMA, and the benefits for PT’s and patients of developing an out-of-network practice.
  2. Mike Reinold – creating your practice around your core values, upper quarter assessment emphasizing shoulder elevation, and return to play criteria.
  3. Rob Panariello and Al Vermeil – athletic development hierarchy and discussions on developing movement efficiency, strength, elastic qualities, speed, and more…
  4. Quinn Henoch – mobility and stability requirements for weight lifting, injury prevention in a sport that focuses on loading, and the Jefferson Curl as a possibility for developing spinal resiliency.
  5. Zac Cupples – learning the PRI system, utilizing PRI in professional basketball, repositioning tricks with challenging patients, favorite manual and non-manual techniques, and more…
  6. Kyle Kiesel – Selective Functional Movement Assessment updates, keys to learning the system, finding the key dysfunction,  as well as an update on the research and his treatment of athletic low back pain.
  7. Mike Voight – developing the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) model, the role of the SFMA, mobility/stability requirements for swinging a club, common injuries and solutions, and more…
  8. Mike Robertson – growing IFAST and valuable lessons learned, finding that ‘sweet spot’ between hard training and injury prevention, as well as some favorite correctives and hard core lifts.
