Core Stability Podcast with Brad Sheppard from CPTW

Last week, I had the privilege of having a chat with Brad Sheppard from Create PT Wealth, a business coaching group based in Australia. Brad wanted my opinion on “The Core” and some quality information for his coaching clients but Create PT Wealth have decided to release it as open to the public.

During the discussion, we covered some of the following topics:

  • What exactly is the “Core”
  • Why are those muscles different to others?
  • How you can apply these principles to your clients and get instant results.

Thank you Brad and Jason from Create PT Wealth for hosting me on their show!

Antony Lo 2hr chat at Power Athlete HQ – raw, unscripted and unedited!

This was originally posted at by Luke Summers. Follow the link to watch the video.

The Power Athlete crew sits down with our friend Antony Lo, the Physio Detective, for a candid Q & A.  Antony came and visited with us after the CrossFit Games to talk shop so we can better align on our sometimes “diverging positions” on things like tension, and movement.

What we discovered is that it all comes down to the idea that Ant is a Healthcare Practitioner, and we are Performance Whores.  What we find is that those two ends of the spectrum can align with just a little bit of discussion and establishing context.

Ep 2 of The Physio Detective Podcast – Lori Forner (Continence and Womens Health Physio) and Antony Lo discuss the pelvic floor

The thoughtful physio...Lori Forner

The thoughtful physio…Lori Forner

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to present the “Bulletproof” Your Girls seminar to athletes and coaches at CrossFit Cuties. Many thanks to Sim Irvine, the owner of CrossFit Cuties for hosting us. During the presentation, I introduced the holistic philosophy that Lori and I both utilize, Lori then presented on the pelvic floor, its functions, stress urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and pelvic pain from an overactive pelvic floor. During the presentation, there was about 30mins of questions, which was fantastic…Lori is very professional, approachable and made things easy to understand. After her presentation, I presented the practical side of things – how the core works together, how to do “core” contractions properly and then how to transfer those things to skipping, box jumps, running, and lifting. We even had one lady do a PB (personal best) on her power clean using our techniques! Of course, things have to end and we could have easily spent another 2 hours going over exercises so we may make it a 6hr seminar next time!

In this podcast, Lori shares her experiences having treated CrossFit athletes in the past as well as hearing my presentation. Read more of this post
