Kelly Starrett's Physio/PNF/Injury Training

I am extremely impressed with Kelly Starrett's journal video series (http://journal.crossfit.com/2009/03/...assessment.tpl for most recent in 9-part series) and would love to see this training mandatory for all cert attendees desiring to affiliate.

As one who has been a member of a CF gym, I think having coaches & trainers possess this knowledge would be crucial to injury prevention and training success.

True? Or am I blowing smoke?

Thoughts?

His knowledge is big and his videos never seem to get boring.
It's a ton of information packaged in his unique way of presentation so that even a dumb person like me can grasp it.

So I bet it won't hurt. (no pun intended )

Re: Kelly Starrett's Physio/PNF/Injury Training

Couldn't agree more, the recent Journal entries by Kelly have been nothing short of excellent. I could listen to that guy all day, unbelievably knowledgable and a fantastic communicator. I hope a Kelly Starrett ExPhysioStrechingEtc Certification is in the works, I would go in a heartbeat.

If you like this stuff, check out Kelly's affiliate blog. He has some super content and regularly posts techniques and info on stretching. http://sanfranciscocrossfit.blogspot.com/ wfs

And, I love to PNF people!

Re: Kelly Starrett's Physio/PNF/Injury Training

How could you compress Kelly's schooling as a Physical Therapist into a 2 day cert? I'm sure it could be done but what would it become?

Personally, I think this is under the caveat empor laissez faire POV of Coach on his affiliates. Sink or swim.

I would also think that many of the people going to affiliates, the bulk of them are not CFJ subscribers or read the mainsite or paw through all the information available on the affiliate blogs or board. They may follow their affiliate blog and a bit of the mainsite. I'd say 80/20 but it's probably more like 85/15 or 90/10.

If you are one of those 10-20% then look for it in whatever trainer is running the affiliate you are interested in.

Part of this is why I am always fascinated in watching those people that do bodywork, work on athletes. Well, that and besides those people seem to be in a very blissful state during.

Re: Kelly Starrett's Physio/PNF/Injury Training

The best thing I've come up with is to email Kelly about coming to my gym. He'll be in Tacoma this summer, date to be determined. Anyone interested in joining us need only email me and I'll put you on the list.

crossfittacoma@gmail.com

In the meantime, I've contacted a MT in the area to come teach our trainers and any interested members all of this stuff as well.

Re: Kelly Starrett's Physio/PNF/Injury Training

Yeah like Blair said its problematic to try to compress 2-3+ years of training into a couple days or videos....

but certain concepts or more prevalent injuries can definitely be noted.

Like anything though you HAVE to be a good trainer to spot certain things wrong with the movements... but then it's just knowing what to do to correct such things. I do think there should be a bit more emphasis on injury prevention/prehab in CF.

Seems like the injuries and such forums get 3+ new posts everyday -- and that's no way indicative of the whole CF nation (probably more). Ironically, this is probably less than most random PT programs...

Re: Kelly Starrett's Physio/PNF/Injury Training

i find this one pretty funny too.

why can't all affiliates be PTs?

So, it takes 2-4 years of full time study, or 5-10 years of *****ing around to gain that kind of knowledge. I have it. My clients benefit from it. I have a rich educational and certification background before I got Crossfit 'certified'. It's mostly why I am a good coach. Level one is fun and all, but I wouldn't expect much out of someone who hasn't/might not pass the level two.

Look for those with a CSCS a few years old, or an RKC, or USAW Club Coach or those who have recently quit training athletes in a facility that is obviously following the Cook/Boyle/Verstegen model and you will have someone with a great tactical base to start implementing the strategic component that makes Crossfit the Mongol Horde of our generation.
