In this week's episode, they discuss how to modify programming due to plateaus, pain, and limitations. They also highlight the benefit of a referral network to stay within your scope of practice, the impact checking in with your client can have, and the importance of KPI tracking.

OVERTRAINING - PART 1

Apr 29, 2022

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.

Overtraining

Overtraining is a term that gets thrown around the gym like cryptocurrency; everyone uses it, but no one understands it.  Ask anyone what overtraining is and you’ll get answers ranging from “Your nerves get fried” to “You’re just working too hard”.  You’ll find a lot of people who use overtraining as an excuse to never actually work hard.  Occasionally you’ll find people who “don’t believe in it”. (I wouldn’t believe in it either if I just did yoga for 30 minutes a day and then returned to my sedentary lifestyle).

INTERNAL VS. EXTERNAL STABILITY

Apr 22, 2022

By Abdurahmaan Saloojee

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

Internal Vs. External Stability

Do you feel like your workouts have been missing something? Does something about their structure feel off? One of the key concepts to understand about exercise selection is internal versus external stability. It is extremely important to differentiate between the two because without it, your workouts within a day will lack structure and intent. 

 

Stability can be described as our muscles’ capacity to resist force. That stability is internal (i.e. created by the body). Stability requirements can change based on the exercise: for example, the stability your body needs to perform a dumbbell lateral raise for medial delts compared to the stability required for a max low bar squat is vastly different. That is internal stability. External stability is exactly as it sounds: external constraints to an exercise that remove the...

BEHAVIOUR CHANGE FOR HEALTH AND FITNESS

Apr 15, 2022

By Jacob 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.

Behavior Change for Health and Fitness

The experts on behavior change and habit formation are not medical professionals.  They’re not gym owners or fitness gurus.  It’s not even life coaches (sorry guys).  If that were the case, the world would be a completely different place.  When you went to the doctor and he said, “You probably need to eat less fast food,” you actually would.  When your trainer said, “I need you to drink more water,” you actually would.  Unfortunately, most of the health community has very little idea what behavior change looks...
