As the author of the Roskopf Principle and The Jumpstart into MAT book and the founder of Muscle Activation Techniques, he not only developed the MAT program but also created a curriculum for this technique that has been taught to students all across the globe.

    Beyond this, Greg works with clients at all physical capability levels who are looking to address challenges they experience due to injury, stress, or trauma to their muscular system. Greg started his career in California as a Strength and Conditioning Coach at Fresno State University from 1985-1988.

Greg currently lives in Denver, Colorado with his family

    Fitness for Consumption: Season 3 Recap

    Fitness for Consumption: Season 3 Recap

    We're at the end of another season of Fitness for Consumption and we're excited to round up the valuable information shared by our hosts, GG and PJ, and their esteemed guests.
     
    The team at Fitness For Consumption works hard to help us develop an understanding of essential fitness concepts and highly complex issues.
     
    Their content cracks the structure of many fitness gurus that trap their audience into a dogmatic belief. At Think Fit. Be Fit. our take is to have discussions on HOW to think and go through the material ourselves to formulate our own opinions about the many varieties of fitness.
     
    This episode is featuring Michelle Amore, MS CLC to support the ongoing conversation on what constitutes the hardest skill in sport.

    Fitness For Consumption ep 29 : One and Done

    Fitness For Consumption ep 29 : One and Done

    The trouble with movement screens and the skill-based solution of the Athletic Movement Assessment If you exercise, you’ve probably done some type of assessment, whether it’s blood pressure, a functional movement screen, or a bootcamp instructor screaming in your ear while you attempt to hang on to a treadmill going 12 mph at a 10% incline.
    What made that screen meaningful?  How was that information used to help you achieve your goals?  Did it predict injuries?  Did it predict skill?  Did it result in practical and effective solutions?  Do screens employ a one-size-fits-all approach, or do they give practitioners and individuals specialized tools to solve specific problems?  Do they reveal issues that don’t actually exist?  More importantly, if we assess only ONCE, and not repeatedly, does that assessment have any meaningful impact on our long-term prospects?
    In this episode, entitled One And Done, we join Dr. Patrick Welsh, Co-Founder and Director of Athletic Movement Assessment, in a discussion on the background and limitations of clinical and gym-based movement screens.  Dr. Welsh presents a new, skill-based, iterative approach, designed to empower practitioners and clients with tools that truly uncover the roots of function, leading to more intuitive and productive solutions.
    For more information about Athletic Movement Assessment, visit their website at www.athleticmovementassessment.com
    In this episode we discuss:
    Background and limitations of past and present assessment models Informative vs predictive assessments The roles of the practitioner and client in regards to recovery and performance Guidelines for decision making vs binary conclusions after assessments The need for re-assessment  
    Glossary:
    Assessment - The estimation or evaluation of the nature, quality or ability of someone or something
    Dynamic Knee Valgus - A measurement of frontal plane motion of the knee where the femur and shank move medially causing lateral compression and medial distraction
    Palliative Maneuvers - An intervention designed with the intent to improve movement quality
    Sensori-Motor Model - A paradigm of information input, decision-making, and motor output, that characterizes how and why movements emerge in response to task constraints
