On this week's episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart podcast, I welcomed Jason Glass to edutain, or educate through entertainment, on his rotational power training philosophy. Jason is one of the world’s top Golf Strength and Conditioning Specialists and owns and operates Tour Performance Lab and Kinetica Golf Performance in Vancouver, British Columbia. He specializes in training rotary athletes, biomechanics, physical assessments and functional strength training.

In this episode, we discuss:

-Does rotational power only equate to explosive movement?

-Why Jason finds that his job is 80% psychological for better client-coach relationships

-Is functional training dependent on individual performance demands?

-Why Jason dropped his book and picked up a microphone

-And much more!

Coach Glass shared so many great pieces of advice especially on how developing relationships with his athletes was the difference maker in his career. Jason begins his assessment by asking the questions, “What would you like me to do for you? Why is that important to you? What are your strategies for this? Do you have the capacity or capabilities to do what you want to do? Do you have the skill set? You have the ambition; let's start with what you have.”

 

Jason also stresses the importance of aligning your training goals with your clients by, “Find[ing] their vulnerability, their fear. Can we take care of what we need to do and address their fears at the same time?”

 

Jason is a proponent for managing the psychological aspect of his training and not just focusing on his kinesiology expertise, "This is a human being that I'm training. If I can't communicate with the human being element and tell them this is why this is important… If they don't buy in, there will be no change."

 

Jason left us with these parting words that really resonated with me, “Dream big, over deliver, be undeniable." He reminds us to always stay true to yourself, do what makes you excited, do it well and you will be able to reach your goals!

On today's episode, we pick the brain of IT band expert, Mark Alexander. Mark is the founder of BakPhysio, a Sports Physiotherapist with a background treating the Australian Olympic and Commonwealth Games Triathlon Teams, and a former lecturer/manager on the La Trobe University post-graduate Master of Sports Physiotherapy program.

In this episode, we tackle:

-Common misconceptions surrounding the IT band

-Possible causal theories of IT Band Friction Syndrome and does the cause effect treatment

-Intrinsic anatomical considerations and extrinsic effects on lateral knee pain

-Mark's treatment approaches to lateral knee pain and "treat what you find" philosophy

-And much more!

 

We cover so much in this podcast and Mark helps dispels quite a few myths. The IT band is continuous with the entire circumferential fascia and it is not something you can target and lengthen. As Mark says, "you can have an impact on the myofascial attachments, but you're not releasing the IT band. If a scalpel can't do it, you can't do it."

 

We also learn some new effective ways to evaluate and treat patients with lateral knee pain.  Mark recommends finding the extrinsic cause through the patient history. Mark’s key question and realization: “Ask them what their activity level has been over the preceding 3-6 months. What? How long? Intensity? Think about a graph with force or load on the y axis and x axis is just time and plot over time what the load has been like. In 80-90% of patients there is a spike! 3 weeks earlier they started to really ramp it up…Their IT band cannot handle that spike and load.”

 

Remember, every patient in front of you is unique! Understand the load and volume being put on their IT band and as ardently put by Mark, "treat what you find, challenge your assumptions, and compare to the other side." And for some guiding treatment principles, Mark suggests to, “Start with pyramidal foundation of stability and work up to strength.”

 

Thank you for listening to the podcast! You can find more from Mark on twitter and can reach him by email at mark.alexander@bakballs.com. If you want to learn more about bakballs, check out his company BakPhysio for more information!
