I purchased & viewed Charlie Weingroff’s “Training = Rehab, Rehab = Training” DVD set a couple months back. I was eagerly awaiting this set because Charlie seems to have a great grasp of both the corrective side & the strength/training side.

Discs 1 & 2

The first two discs cover the foundation of Charlies’ thinking. Some basic points from the first two discs:

  • “Get Long. Get Strong. Go Hard.”
  • Discusses the Joint by Joint approach in a little more detail.
  • Talks at length about mobility & stability and where/when you need one or the other.
  • Vertical tibia which you can read more about here
  • Diaphragm breathing and why it’s so important.
  • Neck packing and the effect on strength & pain that is has.

Discs 3-6

Discs 3 through 6 is part lecture, part hands-on. In disc 3, Charlie goes through the FMS & SFMA “with restrictor plates” as this DVD set is geared to trainers and coaches without manual therapy capabilities. Charlies goes through the SFMA, corrective strategies for each segment and the reasons behind these strategies. The last couple discs of the set show the group performing squatting & deadlifting patterns, as well as the proper way to teach these patterns to clients/patients/athletes.

Obviously, this is a VERY basic review of the set, as it checks in at over 12 hours of footage. I would highly recommend this set to anyone treating folks with movement deficiencies and trainers or coaches who don’t have the manual therapy capabilities as others might.

I’m Back….

First off, let me apologize for falling behind with my posting on this blog. The fiance and I made the move from Chicago to Rochester 2 weeks ago and it’s been nonstop ever since. Finding a decent, reliable car took WAY longer than expected but nevertheless I’m back at it and ready to go.

Movement Matters Performance

The Movement Matters Performance website is still under construction but if you have a quick second, please click on the link above to head to the website. We’ve got our location set in Fairport and our spring schedule is out so please check that out. Eventually, I may roll this blog into that website as I don’t know if I will have time to update both with any regularity.If you know of anyone who may be interested in sports performance or personal training in the Fairport area, please refer them to the MMP website.

I’ll be back later this week with a review of some recent Continuing Education materials that I’ve been reading/watching.
