The Physiotherapist Who Actually Lifts - Tom Roncone
Tom is a knowledgeable guy who applies his physiotherapy knowledge alongside actual practical experience he has had over the years in both powerlifting as well as BJJ. We talk about how he dislocated is ankle and how he returned to full exercise after that. he takes me through understanding pain science and being able to distinguish between good pain and bad pain during training using his traffic light system. we talk about doctors who tell you to stop training when you feel pain or sustained an injury and whether this is good advice. the outlines some of the things you should be looking for when seeking out a physiotherapist (hint: if you are just getting a massage or some dry needling and being sent on your way you are being robbed).

Dr Dan Baker is the president of the Australian Strength & Conditioning Association (ASCA) and hands down one of the biggest OGs in the S&C game in Australia. He has worked with tons of top level athletes and rubbed shoulders with and developed tons of top level coaches. What he and the ASCA do is paramount in driving forward strength and conditioning and the role of coaches in Australia in raising the standards.

We chat about so many things to do with coaching, strength development, standards of strength needed for sports, velocity based training using devices like PUSH and much much more as he gives some very interesting insight from the viewpoint of a person who has been doing it for a few decades and has seen it all come and go.
