Education is a fundamental part of the fitness industry, and I am a huge proponent of absorbing as much as you can as long as it does not distract you from your goals a la the Coach's Curse.
One of the many certifications that a trainer or physical therapist can acquire is the NSCA's Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist exam. The CSCS is an expansive certification designed for strength and conditioning coaches that has scientific and practical components, covering topic such as nutrition, exercise science, and scenario-based analyses.
Today Dr. Matt Casturo joins me to talk all about how he blended his strength and conditioning background with his physical therapy education to create the Movement System and help educate other physical therapists and trainers as they study for the CSCS. We dive deep into program design, and Matt outlines how learning its fundamentals will benefit their clients and help avoid things like burnout. He also goes into detail about slight changes in workouts that can still help clients progress as well as different ways to program blocks.
Matt and I talk all about:
- The benefits that a physical therapist will see from taking the CSCS.
- Progression, plateaus, and buy-in.
- Where Matt finds inspiration for areas of research and content creation.
Don't forget to leave us a review on Apple Podcasts.
