Join us for a two-day live certification event to enhance your understanding of coaching and modifying barbell lifts for clients experiencing pain or mobility constraints.

In this 15-hour live event, approved for CEU, learn our systematic process for adjusting lifts to alleviate pain. When clients struggle with a lift due to discomfort, various modifications such as intensity reduction, volume and frequency adjustment, or alterations in joint angles or lift range of motion can help.

We’ve compiled these diverse modifications into an organized, strategic approach that guides you on prioritizing and implementing steps based on each client’s specific requirements.

Enhance your skills and optimize supplementary work for many client cases. The ability to coach and modify primary barbell lifts like the squat, deadlift, bench press, and overhead press forms a crucial foundation for sustainable training. But, it’s merely a fraction of the whole picture.

Your actions post these exercises can significantly impact your client’s progress. For instance, how would you adapt a lunge for a client with knee or back pain? What type of specific accessory work would be best for someone experiencing recurring shoulder instability? Using our 4-Step Framework for Training with Pain, we cover these and more aspects to help you craft detailed, personalized programs for your clients.

When a client reports discomfort with a lift, you might be overwhelmed with possible solutions. The real question, though, is: What should be your immediate first and second steps?

Professional trainers commonly prescribe increased foam rolling, stretching, or mobility drills when faced with client discomfort. This often leads to an escalation, and soon the client’s warm-up can stretch to 30-45 minutes even before starting the actual lift.

Although these techniques can temporarily alleviate pain or stiffness, their repeated usage often diminishes their effectiveness. So, how can we resolve this and prevent elongated warm-up times? The answer is a systematic approach.

Our Barbell Rehab Method offers this structured framework, providing precise guidance on addressing lift-related discomfort. We aim to eliminate the guesswork for you!

The Barbell Rehab Method Certification event is a unique educational opportunity open to both fitness and healthcare professionals. Whether you’re a personal trainer, strength coach, physical therapist, physical therapy assistant, or chiropractor, we all share the same mission: to enhance our clients’ pain management, performance, and quality of life. To achieve this optimally, we must unite and collaborate as a team.

Healthcare providers often hesitate to recommend their patients to personal trainers, fearing it might undermine their progress. Conversely, fitness professionals might be reluctant to refer clients to healthcare providers in fear of them being advised to quit lifting. We aim to provide a better solution: a collaboration between rehab and fitness professionals to prevent overmedicalization and unnecessary surgeries.
