In today's episode of the PT on ICE Daily Show, ICE CEO Jeff Moore emphasizes the importance of considering individual circumstances and not allowing blanket statements to hinder progress. While the general principle of "do less better" is often advocated for efficiency and clarity, Jeff acknowledges that there are exceptions to this approach.
Jeff encourages listeners to think about situations where a person may come into the clinic with psychological barriers or feeling overwhelmed. In these cases, Jeffg suggests that overwhelming the individual with multiple interventions or exercises may actually be beneficial. By providing a variety of options and allowing the person to choose one or two to focus on, it can help shift their psychology and get them on board with the treatment plan.
Jeff also mentions that this concept applies not only to exercise but also to other aspects of healthcare, such as sleep hygiene and diet. Instead of overwhelming individuals with a long list of changes to make, it is more effective to start with one or two manageable changes. This approach makes it more approachable and minimizes barriers to compliance.
Overall, the episode highlights the importance of considering individual circumstances and being flexible in treatment approaches. While the general principle of "do less better" is valuable, it is essential to recognize that there are times when overwhelming individuals with options or interventions can be beneficial in getting them on board and moving in the right direction.

Alright team, what's up? Welcome to the PT on Ice Daily show. I am Dr. Jeff Moore, currently serving as the CEO of Ice and thrilled to be here on a Leadership Thursday. Always wonderful to have you on Instagram, on YouTube if you're live streaming or over on the podcast. Thank you so much for carving out a few minutes for us today. It is Thursday, it means it's Gut Check Thursday, and it is a doozy. So many of you are at the CrossFit Games, you're probably going to be throwing this workout down together. I know it comes from our friends at Mayhem, they're probably going to be doing it as well. But the workout is, and it would be simple if it was just the first part, it is a hundred for time at a relatively manageable weight. Okay, so we've got 75-55 on the bar. Many of you probably remember the 100 clean and jerks for time that we've done I think twice now. The problem is you also have an EMOM of 15 air squats, and that's going to make it a different kind of stimulus, and that includes starting at zero. The first thing you're going to do when the timer goes off or Gut Check Thursday is you're going to bang out 15 air squats, then you're going to grab your bar and start rocking your power snatches. You're going to keep doing this every minute, 15 air squats, as many power snatches as you can until you've accumulated 100 power snatches at 75 or 55 pounds. Can't wait to see some of the post commit, I already saw one this morning, somebody said their low back was on fire, I'm sure that's the case, I can't wait to try it. Probably going to knock that out here on Saturday afternoon. Alright, as far as upcoming courses go, I want to highlight, speaking of power snatches, I want to highlight our Fitness Athlete Live courses because the ones that are coming up, I see those cour
