Current Role Working With The Athletic PopulationI run my Exercise Physiology business, Total Body Benefit, out of barbell athlete gym. It is comprised primarily of powerlifters but there is also plenty of weightlifters and strongmen/strongwomen.
Professional PhilosophyI believe, we as allied health, are facilitators of change and educators. I hope to educate my athletes to understand their experiences of pain and empower them to keep training. Sometimes athletes don't like simply reducing overall intensity which is why I like to add variations of lifts that may reduce overall load but keep RPE high.
I have participated in track, swimming, gymnastics, combat sports, weightlifting and powerlifting. Currently my focus is powerlifting, with plans to shortly move back into weightlifting and try strongman.
