"Most injuries do not occur in the sagital plane."
This week we welcome Brent Brookbush of the Brookbush Institute of Human Movement Sciences. We kick off our conversation with Brent discussing his background in personal training and steady progress over the years, eventually receiving his doctorate in physical therapy.
Brent holds a fresh perspective on human movement and explains his simple approach to learning the mechanics of the bod. Hear his three rules to learning anatomy that will most certainly enhance your understanding of muscle and joint actions.
We also chat about Brent's preference to single jointed exercises as a means to both diagnose and correct movement issues. Additionally, we go back and forth about the function of the hamstrings and as Brent tells it, the gluts are where the real money is made.
Finally, hear what is on Brent's schedule for this year and what his website and seminar can offer you. From a man who is ballzz deep in continuing education himself, he still finds time to hold his own 2 day clinic which can be found on BrentBrookbush.com.
If knowledge is power, then Power Athlete Radio is about to promote you to MFCEO. This is Episode 97.
Please head to Brent's website for more resources including videos, seminar information, and premium membership content.
Stay tuned to next week when we have Christy Phillips-Adkins on our show. Christy is a four time individual CrossFit Games competitor and accomplished nurse. Standing at just 5 feet, 4 inches, she holds her own among some of the most fierce female competitors in the sport. Hear how she stays humble despite her exposure to some of the more "confident" athletes in CrossFit. What's her plan of attack for this year's Open? To find out you'll have to tune in to Episode 98.
A strength and conditioning coach since 2009, Cali has worked with numerous athletes spanning from rugby players to cross country skiers. Almost immediately after finding CrossFit in 2010, she was introduced to a program that better suited her athletic goals. With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.
