DYNAMIC ASSESSMENTS

Nov 19, 2021

By James Thayer

James is an Assistant Director of Fitness and Wellness, educator, presenter and Pre-Script Coach. He believes the best approach to learning is to engage, educate and empower individuals and communities. James utilizes coaching, programming, performance and movement proficiency to set a standard for conversation to application. 

Dynamic Assessments

The initial intake assessment sets a foundation in which the start of the program is based on. It offers time to build a relationship with clients, develops cue connections, lines of communication and efficiency of movement. Assessing the movement quality and limitations or restrictions in mobility, stability and strength establishes what should be addressed in the program. 

While the initial assessment is important to the starting parameters of a program design it would be inefficient to conduct the initial assessment at the beginning of every session. This is where a dynamic assessment in the session can hold...

TFL FUNCTION (Why Your Stick Figure Squat Is Wrong)

Nov 12, 2021

 By Jake Larsen

Beginning with wrestling and soccer, Jake has been immersed in fitness nearly his whole life.  Personal training and studying exercise in college were the natural progression of that passion.  Competing locally in bodybuilding and powerlifting, Jake currently studies exercise at university and does online coaching at Jackalstrength.com.

TFL Function

(and why your stick figure squat is wrong)

You know all those stick figure images on the internet that try to break down the “essential biomechanics of a squat”, or any other exercise?  Have you ever noticed that the people so interested in educating you on the importance of the biomechanical advantages of their stick figure squat positions seem to strangely resemble the stick figures they draw?  Put simply, the stick figure “biomechanics” model is wrong. 

There are no biomechanics to a two-dimensional image, it’s just mechanics (also known as basic physics)...

HAVE YOU TRIED TRYING?

Nov 05, 2021

By: Abdurahmaan Saloojee
Abdurahmaan is a Pre-Script coach from Ottawa who loves reading, traveling, and training. 

“Have you tried trying?” 

 

This is a Muscle-Doc-ism that makes for a great Instagram caption, but let’s dig a little deeper and understand what this means. This is especially pertinent to many budding coaches getting started in the fitness space that are being confronted with the sheer landslide of information about training for the first time. 

 

Much of coaching and more specifically, effective programming, revolves around optimizing training. “How can I make this exercise more effective?” “How can I make this workout split better?” “How can I get this client to perform this exercise so they can achieve their goals faster?” As coaches progress through their intellectual journey, they may realize that more often than not, many kinds of optimization rest at the top of the tree: there are...
