Performance is the Proxy

This is one of those iconic Shallow-ism’s that I find myself using incredibly often. There’s so much value in this phrase because it can act as a major guiding pillar for how we deliver results through our coaching.

This may seem a bit ambiguous from the outside looking in, appearing as a smoke bomb without added context for clarity. Let’s dive into what exactly this means and unpack how we can use this as a cornerstone of...

UTILIZING RESISTANCE PROFILES IN EXERCISE ORDER

Apr 01, 2022

By Abdurahmaan Saloojee

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

UTILIZING RESISTANCE PROFILES IN EXERCISE ORDER

Out of the plethora of factors that can affect programming and optimize it in certain ways, exercise order is one of the biggest rocks to overturn. Effective exercise order can change a workout drastically. It can improve your load selection and management, keep your fatigue levels lower, and even reduce risk of injury down the road. It seems too good to be true, but it is: intelligent exercise order is wildly underrated, and adjustments can be made for every population and to suit every goal. Selecting appropriate and intelligent exercises is an applaudable first step, but then the challenge becomes fitting it into a day in a sound order. This in turn will affect your programming across the week and keep you pushing for longer. Bear in mind that the following suggestions are good heuristics to refer to, but...

Coupling Exercises on the Gait Cycle Continuum

Mar 25, 2022

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.

Coupling Exercises on the Gait Cycle Continuum

Pre-Script utilizes a warm-up pattern called the Gait Cycle Continuum which integrates gait cycle mechanics in preparation for lower body training days. The Sprinter Pose, Single Leg RDL, Hip Airplane and Forward Lunge comprise the continuum and uses mobility, stability, strength principles to prepare for the exercise demands and positions experienced during a training session.

The priority should be placed on becoming proficient in the movements individually before progressing to coupling the exercises. The proficiency of each sets a foundation for performance moving forward into more complex and...

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT IS A CONTINUUM

Mar 18, 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.

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT IS A CONTINUUM

People come up to me all the time to say, “I tried (insert any weight-loss strategy) and it didn’t work.”

I can tell from their opening line that the problem isn’t their diet strategy; the problem is their attitude.

There’s a huge difference between weight loss and weight management.  Weight management involves gaining weight, losing weight, and maintaining weight over long periods of time.

Weight loss is not as easy as your favorite Instagram model makes it seem.  Yeah, weight loss can be boiled down to eating less and moving more (if you don’t...

WHY YOU NEED TO CARE

Mar 10, 2022

By Abdurahmaan Saloojee

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

WHY YOU NEED TO CARE

The coaching field is utterly unique, especially when measured against other fields in the general health industry (see infectious diseases, diabetes, obesity, etc.). Many of those medical fields have been around for much longer than coaching and personal training as we understand it today, so much more research has gone into those fields and a larger amount of data has been collected. From that, many more objective measurements and conclusions have been made in those areas relative to the fitness industry. Their rulebook is more fleshed out, and there are simple equations that can be used to solve the problems. At a surface level, understanding how those illnesses work can be simple, and for many, the process of treatment or medical prescription is a well-established pattern. This is simplifying the problem a lot, and it is not meant to take...
