I’m starting a new series of posts that will bring some fucking fire to you all. Much of the content shared in these posts will be around things that I have recently learned, highly recommend, encourage you check out… or most importantly…
SLAY THE FUCK OUT OF YOUR DAY!
Their will be a lot of energy in these posts and absolutely no filter whatsoever.
So.. I hope you enjoy and we will begin today’s new series of “THINGS TO READ TO HELP SLAY YOUR DAY” by starting with a recent podcast hosted by Sebastian Gonzales and included Dr. Stuart McGill and Brian Caroll. In this podcast, you will hear about why it’s a bad idea to foam roll your lower back, the importance of building load tolerance, and how pain can inhibit one’s performance.
2) The Round Table Podcast
My fellow colleagues, Adam D’Angelo and Zachary Charles put together a great podcast the other day in which they interviewed Matt Stork, whom is currently a researcher in the area of ‘sprint interval training’. In the podcast, you will hear about some of Matt’s research, as well some of the benefits around sprint interval training. Note: I’m currently doing some research in this area and you may hear a shout out about your’s truly if you listen long enough 😉
3) Weight Loss and Lower Back Pain?
Here is a new video that I put together talking about the impact weight loss may have on the development of lower back pain. One interesting observation I’ve made over the years was that the majority of severe low back pain cases I have seen or heard of tend to be related to more athletic populations due to their frequency of engaging in high risk activities (e.g., repeated sit-ups, heavy deadlift with poor form). Although sedentary populations may carry more weight around, this doesn’t exactly equate to more lower back injuries. Rather, the initial mechanism always seem to be the most important factor in the onset of a low back injury 🙂
