KNEE PAIN WHEN SQUATTING BY ABDURAHMAAN SALOOJEE

Jan 28, 2022
Abdurahmaan is a Pre-Script coach from Ottawa who loves reading, traveling, and training.

Knee Pain When Squatting

This may be the first of a series, because there are a plethora of reasons that your knee may hurt in a squat. In fact, this is a good teaching point right off the bat: many coaches that are reading this have likely received a message saying “Hey coach, when I squat my knee hurts. What should I do?” You may have even been the one asking that question (guilty). The truth is, many coaches are tired of answering this question (at least the way it is currently worded) due to its lack of context. There are a multitude of factors that may contribute to knee pain during a squat, including but not limited to: Q-angle (as a consequence, gender), limb length, training age, injury history, and specific squat variation. All of this is to say, if you know you ask this question, try to provide a bit of context for the coach so that they can get more specific. And if you...

DEADLIFTS AND BICEP TEARS BY JAKE LARSEN

Jan 21, 2022

 

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.

 

Deadlifts and Bicep Tears

 

The deadlift: king of lifts, right?  Do it right and the benefits are numerous, do it wrong… well, it is infamous.

 

Regarding conventional deadlifts, you’ve probably heard that alternating grip (sometimes called the over-under grip) is “bad”.

 

First off, what does bad mean?  “Bad” is an ambiguous term that people use to describe things that they don’t understand.  Does that mean it will negatively impact your goals?  Will it be effective at creating the desired stimulus?  Will it increase risk of injury? ...

PODCAST EPISODE #254: TRAINING WOMEN

Jan 19, 2022
 

SUBSCRIBE

 

This week on RX’D Radio, Dr. Jordan Shallow and Dr. Jordan Jiunta sit down to discuss the controversial topic of training across genders. Today Shallow receives a lesson in “mansplaining”, and the boys discuss the objective differences seen in the majority of female vs. male strength clientele. In addition, the boys remind us as coaches and clients that honesty is the most important variable in training success. Once again, sticking to our lane of experience is probably the best choice when working with a particular subset of clientele.

WHAT'S MEASURED IS MANAGED - ASKING BETTER QUESTIONS

Jan 14, 2022

By James Macintosh

James is an ex powerlifter, online coach, educator and Pre-Script coach. He believes that education is not just theory but, more importantly, applying what we are taught. James takes a detailed approach to the art of coaching by facilitating conversations to improve communication, programming and training protocols for coaches to develop their services.

 

What’s measured is managed, but more importantly, Asking better questions of what we are measuring.

 

We all know that there’s so much more to coaching than giving someone a spreadsheet. 

As a coach in this day and age, we get told we have to consider biofeedback markers and performance metrics when assessing clients’ progress within their micro/macrocycles. This “full system” approach to evaluating and understanding the body can be vitally important in our decision making when writing programs to align with your client’s goals. BUT if we aren’t able to...

HAMSTRING CONSIDERATIONS

Jan 07, 2022

By Kyle Coogs

Kyle is a strength & conditioning coach residing in Massachusetts. He's spent the past few years working primarily alongside hockey athletes, among others. More recently he had the opportunity to assist with pre-season testing for an NHL organization. He also has some skin in the strength game, having competed in powerlifting for the past 6 years.

Hamstring Considerations

One of the more undervalued and under-trained muscle groups, the hamstrings, can be a complex addition in the programs of most athletes and lifters. In the athletic population, implementation in their programs revolve around Nordic hamstring curls and various stretches. Whereas the hardened lifter resorts to deadlift variations and avoids providing the muscle any relief. Before choosing a training method, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the structure around the muscle group. The hamstrings (which consist of three muscles) originate at the bottom of the pelvis and insert below the...

Introducing the Landmine Into Your Program

Dec 31, 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. 

 

INTRODUCING THE LANDMINE

Implementing a new training tool or piece of equipment into a training block can carry with it excitement at the prospect of change and new challenge. Ideally that excitement would be accompanied by consideration towards that implementation or it can quickly fall into nuance on the new, losing sight of the goal. The landmine attachment is one of those tools that is becoming a staple in most gyms and appearing more frequently in training programs.

The landmine is unique in that it allows the user to self-organize around an externally stabilized pivot point through both unilateral and bilateral loads. The...
