One Step Back to Take Two Steps Forward

Lately, I’ve found myself using a certain phrase with many of my clients to emphasize a point I’m trying to make, “sometimes you need to take one step back to take two steps forward.”  I specifically emphasize that this is a lot different than the phrase “two steps forward, one step back,” which often has a negative connotation.

Perhaps it’s our always-on, go-go-go, society that we live in now that wants nothing but progress, but this concept has many meanings to both myself and my clients.  Here are a few ways I incorporate this concept into my training, rehabilitation, and even personal development.

 

Fitness and Performance Training

As fitness trends continue to evolve and fads come and go, there are always two common complaints that I hear from people in regard to their training programs:

  • I’m not making progress
  • I’m breaking down

Either of these two complaints is enough for me to consider that you may need to take a step back.  These tend to occur when your programming is not individualized based on your own specific needs and goals or when your always focused on “emptying the tank” every session.

workout exhaustion

Assuming you have a well-design strength or performance training program, the error tends to occur by always focusing on pushing the limits and not allowing your body to recover.  If you are training to failure or competing at fitness every day, you have to be conscious of the fact that eventually this breaks down your body.  This is normal, required to make progress, and advantageous, at least when used correctly.  (photo credit)

However, to continue to make long lasting gains and avoid wearing and tearing on your joints and muscles, you need to incorporate some sort of deloading into your programming.  I won’t go deep into the concept of deloading, as other people that are smarter than I am have said it well before.  Here is a great article by Tony Gentilcore on why and how he incorporates deloading into his programming, for example.

When do you need to unload?  It varies based on your training experience, intensity, and frequency.  Rather than standardize a deload period, I have a simple criteria to determine if you need a deload week – are you plateauing your progress or are you breaking down?  Simple.

But realize that deloading does not mean resting.  Our deload periods at Champion take advantage of the time and work on enhancing efficiency and cleaning up movement patterns.

Also note, this concept applies to sports performance training.  If you are 12 years old and long tossing in October to enhance your pitching velocity for next April, you really need to get better advice from someone that understands the concepts of periodization.

 

Injury Rehabilitation

I’m a big fan of “regen days.”  Often times during injury rehabilitation, people are trying to get back as soon as possible.  For the highly motivated person, like the professional athlete, they often feel like they have to get after the rehab program every day to get back as fast as possible.  I have actually found that this often SLOWS the process down!

As an example, in professional baseball, we play everyday.  Maybe we have 2 or 3 days off a month.  Sunday is usually a day game and getaway day, meaning that we need wake up early, pack our bags, check out of the hotel, play the game, then travel to another city.  I was always a fan of taking Sundays off from rehab in professional baseball, and I was often looked at like I had two heads.

I seriously doubt we are going to make any significant gains on a Sunday morning waking up at 7:00 AM and rehabbing when last night’s game ended at 11:00 PM and you were in bed at 2:00 AM.  We just crushed it all week in rehab, it’s time for a break.  Get some good sleep and take the day off – both physically AND mentally!

That’s just one example.  For the athlete that may be rehabbing daily, I often build my rehab programs with altering variables throughout the week depending on what phase of the program they are currently performing.  For example, I often do a three day split with my baseball players:

  • Day 1 – Strength based
  • Day 2 – Stability based
  • Day 3 – Regen

Again, “regen day” does not mean rest, but I can’t keep taxing the system every day.  During the early phases of rehab, perhaps the first month or two after Tommy John surgery, we don’t need this as the training stimulus is not high enough, but once you start incorporating more advanced exercises and eventually throwing, this concept becomes important.

I always tell my clients – take a step back and you’ll come back twice as ready to go.  By the end of the week, most of my clients are pretty beat down and ready for a nice weekend to recover.  On Monday morning, they are ready to roll again.  This is how you make big gains week-to-week in the rehab process.

 

Personal Development

studyingLastly, I use this concept all the time in my own personal development.  We’ve all probably been in a place where we felt that the programs we are writing or how we were coaching our athletes was perfect.  And I bet it was.  But it was only perfect for that single day.  As we continue to learn, grow, and develop, I push all of the team at Champion PT and Performance to challenge themselves.  I want them all to look back at a program they wrote several months or years ago and think “I would write that completely different now.”  (Photo credit)

That doesn’t mean that your program was poorly designed before, it means you have evolved your thought process and progressed yourself.

If you are writing the same programs all the time or can look back and your programs a year later are the same as last year, you are better than that.  Take a step back, challenge yourself intellectually, learn something, evolve, and take two giants steps forward.

 

Taking a step back to take two steps forward doesn’t have to be negative.  It’s still progress.  Consider these tips and incorporate theses concepts into your training, rehabilitation, and personal development.

 

 

Functional Stability Training for the Upper Body

My latest educational program with Eric Cressey, Functional Stability Training for the Upper Body, is now available!  

FST for the Upper Body is the third program in out Functional Stability Training system, adding to the popular Core and Lower Body programs.  When Eric and I started to brainstorm what we wanted to teach with these programs, we wanted to share our approaches to rehabilitation and performance training, but more importantly how we integrate the two together.  This makes the FST products a great resource for any rehabilitation, fitness, or performance specialist.

 

Functional Stability Training for the Upper Body

Functional Stability Training for the Upper BodyIn order to function properly, our body needs to be strong and mobile, but control and stabilization of this mobility is often less than optimal.  Unfortunately, stabilization is often overlooked in the design of rehabilitation and performance programs.  Traditional program design relies too much on mobilizing what is tight and strengthening what is weak.  We are missing the boat on stabilization and it’s effect on enhancing optimal movement patterns.

Proper function of the upper extremities is complicated and requires the arm to work in conjunction with the scapula, thorax, cervical spine, and core to provide mobility, strength, and power to the entire body.  Any deficits in stability throughout the body’s kinetic chain can lead to injury, dysfunction, and a decrease in performance in the upper body.  FST for the Upper Body aims to help formulate rehabilitation and training programs designed to optimize how the upper body functions.

By addressing alignment, strength, mobility, and dynamic motor control, you can maximize your rehabilitation and training programs to reach optimal performance.

Think about a few of these:

  • Can the lumbopelvic and thoracic regions impact shoulder function?
  • Can the cervical spine impact the elbow?
  • Can scapular position decrease shoulder performance?

The answer to all of these questions is ABSOLUTELY!  Functional Stability Training for the Upper Body discusses all this and more, showing you exactly how you can assess and correct issues within the kinetic chain to optimize stability and performance of the upper extremity.

Here is an outline of the presentations and lab demonstrations that we perform.  Eric and I combine presentations with real life examples so you can see how we both manage specific individuals based on our assessments.  You get to see Eric and I at work together working with people:

  • How posture and position influence upper extremity function
  • Understanding and managing joint hypermobility
  • Understanding the elbow: functional anatomy, common injuries, and conditions
  • Elbow injuries: evaluation and management
  • Assessment and management of thoracic mobility restrictions
  • Assessment and management of muscles imbalances of the shoulder and scapula
  • Assessment and management of scapular position
  • Assessment and management of elbow epicondylitis

 

Optimal Shoulder Performance

For those that are familiar with Eric and I’s other education program Optimal Shoulder Performance, Functional Stability Training for the Upper Body takes this information to the next level by showing how we integrate the entire body to optimize upper body function.  

FST for the Upper Body integrates the concepts learned from FST for the Core and FST for the Lower Body, and serves as the sequel to their previous educational program, Optimal Shoulder Performance.  FST for the Upper Body is perfect as a stand alone program, but also builds off Optimal Shoulder Performance to help take your knowledge to the next level.  Putting the information from all of these products together will give you a complete understanding of how we approach our integration of rehabilitation and performance.

We had great reviews from the live filming of this program:

A Foolproof Way to Learn More in 2013

A Foolproof Way to Learn MORE in 2013-1

Back in December, I reflected on what I learned in 2012.  One of them discussed the importance of online education and it’s impact on our ability to advanced our own education and development.  I wanted to expand on that thought a little bit and offer what I believe is a foolproof way to learn more in 2013.

[box type=”note” icon=”none”]

What if I were to tell you that you can add two weeks of more time to your year in 2013?

[/box]

We all want more time, right?

We all feel like there isn’t enough time in the day to get things done so we usually suffer ourselves.  Sometimes we skip exercise, or eat poorly, or neglect continuing education.

By carving out 20 minutes a day and dedicating it to personal growth and continuing education, you’ll accumulate 2 extra weeks of time during the year.  And that is just 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week – take the weekend off!  If you spend 20 minutes per day, 5 days per week, that adds up to over 86 hours a year, or more than two full work weeks of continuing education.

I think 20 minutes is the perfect length of daily education.  Studies have shown that pushing yourself a little bit each day, stepping away, and coming back results in better skill development.  You’ll have better retention, and you can mix and match different topics each day to whatever interests you today or to learn something specific to a patient or client you have coming in later that day.  You want to push yourself often, daily in this example, to create a habit of professional growth.  This stimulates your brain and I can almost guarantee will make you feel better about yourself, feel more confident, and ultimately happier in the long run.

[box type=”note” icon=”none”]Make daily professional growth a habit.[/box]

 

Finding 20 Minutes a Day

foolproof way to learn more in 2013So how do you find 20 minutes a day and how do you fill these minutes?  I’m glad you asked!  (OK, I guess I was actually the one that asked…).  Finding 20 minutes per day seems easy enough, but we all know how hard that can be at times.  My easiest recommendations for finding these 20 minutes are to:

  1. Schedule these 20 minutes.  Maybe it is at lunch, right when you get to work, while you are drinking your morning coffee, or whenever, but if you schedule these 20 minutes and make them part of your routine, you will be more likely to find time.
  2. Don’t check your email first thing in the morning.  Really, what exciting things happened during those 8 hours you were sleeping?  Nothing you can’t get to when you get to work or during a set time.  I try to avoid my email until after I accomplished a major goal of the day, so that way I am not distracted with little to-do’s before I get the most important task of the day out of the way.
  3. Disconnect from social media.  Studies have shown a certain amount of OCD is created by social media, making you want to stay connected throughout the day.  I would bet many of you waste away 20 minutes a day playing around pinning, poking, and tweeting all day (do we still poke?  Confession – I never knew what poking was…).

Rather than try to find 20 extra minutes a day, sometimes it’s easier to start with trying to multitask for 20 minutes per day.  How about while you are eating breakfast, or commuting to work, or waiting at the dentist?  Photo credit.

 

How to Use Those 20 Minutes

So now that you have found those magical 20 minutes, how do you maximize your ability to learn in these precious moments?  Here are some ideas:

  1. Set up a system to stay on top of website articles and journal articles as they become available.  You can use Google alerts, RSS feeds, and many more tools.  If you want to learn what I do, I have a webinar on setting up a system to stay on top of interests and evidence.
  2. Always have some articles you want to read readily available on your phone or tablet using an RSS reader like Google Reader, a read it later app like Instapaper, or a note taking app like Evernote.  Now, while you waiting in line at the bank, or for a haircut, or for your wife to get ready before you go out (because I know she’ll read this…).
  3. Listening to a podcast or audiobook while you are driving.
  4. Listening to a podcast or audiobook while jogging/walking/etc.
  5. Watching a DVD or online webinar while on a treadmill.  I rip all my DVDs to my iPad and then watch them at 1.5x to 2.0x speed.
  6. Watching a DVD or online webinar while commuting to work (assuming you aren’t the one driving).

 

A Call to Action

I really believe that current trends in online education can make you much better at what you do.  I started this thought in my article in December, but want to elaborate a little more.  I would like to propose the following call to action for us all to learn more in 2013:

  1. Attend at least one continuing education seminar a year.  This is designed to obtain a specific skill and should be dedicated to one with mostly hands-on learning and manual skill development.
  2. Attend at least one multi-speaker symposium each year.  This is to get several different views in a short amount of time and usually has a wide variety of topics.  Plus you get a great networking oppurtunity.  Downside of these symposiums is usually lack of hands-on time.
  3. Have one book to read that is NOT related to our clinical skillswork on your other skill sets, I try to read 1-2 per month.  HINT: You’ve probably figured it our by now, but most books like this have about 20% content and 80% stories to strengthen the content.  I don’t need the fluff, I read fast and get through more books this way.
  4. Watch one webinar a week.  Subscribe to a resource that has a diverse amount of topics that you can digest quickly, like RehabWebinars.com or my Inner Circle.  That way you can vary the topics but whatever is on your mind that week or whoever you have on the schedule that day.  If a webinar is more than 20 minutes, watch half one day and the other half the next.
  5. Read a couple of websites a day while drinking your morning coffee, eating lunch, or unwinding in bed.  I usually spend 10 minutes a day doing this and staying on top of what is been published on the internet.  As I mentioned earlier, you can read more about how to learn my system of staying current.

 

Think about it, over the course of the year you would attend at least 1 continuing education seminar, 1 symposium, read at least 12 books, watched 52 webinars, and read 100’s of online blog posts and journal articles.  There is no doubt this will serve as a great shortcut to overachieving and making great progress in your career.

Foolproof.

Now that you have gained all this time and know what to do with it, use these two weeks you gained to educate yourself more and start overachieving!
