    #7 Jeffrey Wolf on Systems, Stretching & Being 'The Flexibull'

    #7 Jeffrey Wolf on Systems, Stretching & Being 'The Flexibull'

    Here are the fundamentals you NEED to know about stretching, flexibility, and mobility if you’re a coach or athlete. We’re busting flexibility myths and uncovering the truth behind why people lack strength and move poorly (including yoga teachers!). In this episode of the David Grey Rehab Podcast, I welcome Jeffrey Wolf aka “The Flexibull”, who is the Creator of Strength Culture, where he provides simple and effective online weight loss programs and strength, mobility, and athletic training programs.



    Tune in as we dive deep into the theories behind stretching and flexibility as well as the practical applications of stretching and flexibility in the coaching and training world. We also talk about why all coaches need to study Dynamic Systems Theory and Jeff shares his favorite flexibility teachers, books, and programs.



    “When you say flexibility, people just think extremes and I’m not talking necessarily in extremes, I’m just talking about whatever’s needed to accomplish the task that’s being asked of your body… If you don’t have flexibility in certain areas, your body will figure out a different way to go about it.” - Jeffrey Wolf



    “The more options that you have to complete a certain task, the more chance of success you have… and that is essentially what we call coordination.” - Jeffrey Wolf

And historically, that’s going to be a squat or a hinge and some pushes and pulls to just keep it super simple and then you sprinkle in whatever other remedial work or accessory work for whatever that individual needs for specific positions.” - Jeffrey Wolf

    “Make really, really simple cues and just understand that a lot of time, they’re not gonna look perfect straight away, but athletes will actually quite often learn to self-organize and make themselves better.

    #3 Jill Zimmerman & Katie St Clair on Marketing, Pelvic Floor & Yielding In Plyometrics

    #3 Jill Zimmerman & Katie St Clair on Marketing, Pelvic Floor & Yielding In Plyometrics

    In this episode of the David Grey Rehab Podcast, I welcome personal trainer and strength coach, Katie St.Clair, along with physical therapist, Jill Zimmerman. Tune in to learn about the fundamentals of training and physical therapy with the pelvic floor in mind, the functions of the pelvic floor, and the impact of the pelvic floor on pregnancy and postpartum life. Plus, Katie and Jill share great advice for fitness professionals as well as their powerful thoughts on the relationship between trauma, the pelvic floor, and chronic tension in the body.



    We also uncover the marketing tactics behind Jill and Katie’s unique business models, the importance of high-quality, safe learning environments (especially for online courses), and my approach to using reactive movements and/or yielding in plyometrics.



    “I think the hardest thing about mother[hood] is the expectations that they’re going to have time to do any of these things. Finding strategies - like hey you’re in your car or hey you’re breastfeeding - there are actually things you can do while you’re sitting there… So, let me give you a seated exercise you can do in your car.”

    - Katie St.Clair



    “There’s a lot of guarding of the pelvic floor that’s due to safety or a need to find safety. So there’s a lot of emotional issues that people might guard with their pelvic floor, whether it be past traumas, even just emotional trauma, physical trauma… feelings of shame, feelings of fear… and that happens in other parts of the bodies too but especially with the pelvic floor.” - Jill Zimmerman

    1:35:30 – Who would you bring to a deserted island if you were trapped there for a week?



    “Hip impingement can be a tricky one to treat and I think some people get really hung up, and it’s like, well is anyone looking at the pelvic floor? Maybe we should because that’s a huge part if you actually think about where those muscles lie and what they do. So, I think [physical therapy] can be a really good tool to sort of unlock some of these really tough to crack cases.” - Jill Zimmerman
