10 Feb Dr. Charlie Weingroff – Moving Beyond Training Equals Rehab

(#160) Charlie Weingroff, strength coach and renowned physical therapist, returns to the podcast this week.

Charlie is a Doctor of Physical Therapy, a Certified Athletic Trainer, a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and an elite level powerlifter.

Charlie’s DVD series – Training = Rehab – has redefined the language between rehabilitation and performance enhancement training. It is a “must-have” for every physical therapist, strength coach and personal trainer.

Charlie’s no-nonsense coaching style will force you to start asking yourself tougher questions. You’ll walk away from this interview wanting to search deeper for more reliable answers that will make you a better athlete, coach, and overall person.

In today’s episode, I talk with Charlie about his philosophies on training, coaching, and the importance of incorporating rehabilitation into your training. He also answers a few great listener questions.

I greatly admire Charlie’s “un-filtered” thoughts and opinions on training and performance.

Here’s what you’ll hear about in this week’s amazing episode:

  • Charlie explains how he’s been able to stand out and become successful in the fitness industry
  • The importance of delivering solid information in today’s climate
  • When and how to incorporate foam rolling into your workouts
  • The 4 reasons to complete a warm-up routine
  • How to prepare for your workout through rehearsing movement
  • The science behind the Functional Movement Screen (FMS)
  • How to use FMS to assess your clients and create a safe entry point to build upon
  • What can happen if your joints are not efficient in getting in the right positions
  • The importance of finding a complete coach
  • When to avoid overhead pressing
  • The benefits of the “not so primal movements” like rolling and crawling
  • Why rolling doesn’t require you to be on the ground
  • Filtering out the bad fitness information
  • The importance of picking and choosing your battles
  • Is it ever appropriate to tolerate mediocrity
  • What is “Training = Rehab” all about?
