Training=Rehab—Rehab=Training DVD set

This is the long-awaited DVD debut from world-class physical therapist Dr. Charlie Weingroff and it’s an absolute monster.


Training=Rehab, Rehab=Training
is a 12+ hour, 6-disc set shot on-location over a weekend at an Equinox Fitness Club in New York City. It documents Dr. Weingroff’s continuing efforts to reinvent and redefine the language between the rehabilitation and performance enhancement training landscapes. And while there are plenty of examples for those who just want the exercises, these DVDs are more about designing your own blueprints based on common rules that medical professionals and personal trainers should honor.

If you weren’t there, this puts you in the room for the entirety of an extraordinary voyage with one of the most influential and outspoken voices in the industry. Training=Rehab, Rehab=Training will surely be an educational milestone and a must-have in the collection for every physical therapist, strength coach and personal trainer.

6-discs, over 12 hours!

Writes Charlie Weingroff—
The goal of my DVD set is teach non-medical professionals the SFMA with restrictor plates. There will be no breakouts, no manual therapy, and no treating pain.

I think it is a huge void where non-medical folks don’t have the tool(s) to work side by side with medical clinicians with the same template. Non-painful dysfunction is the FMS; you will learn how to get into those patterns with my DVD, and you will leave the painful patterns to those that are qualified. If that happens to be you anyway, all the better.

You’ll find a lot more explanation than just the SFMA. Topics will be typical injuries you see when the joint by joint goes wrong, the core pendulum theory, and understanding the inner core.

But I also hope I am not going to disappoint anyone as this version of the material, like I said, will be the SFMA with restrictor plates. There will be no breakouts, no manual therapy, and no mechanism to treat people with pain.

What I want is for non-medical and medical folks to be able to use the same template to answer one of the MAJOR things I don’t care for, which is folks using the FMS in the presence of pain. After this DVD, you will know how to start to unfold the roadmap when you work with someone in pain. But I will not be the ones to give you tools that you may or may not be qualified to use. I respect that many non-medical clinicians are quite capable particularly manual therapists with an exercise background. I just don’t think it is appropriate to potentially put a chainsaw in the hands of a 4-year old. It’s not the right thing to do, and it’s also not really possible to put into a DVD.

I thoroughly explain why the rules are so clear when the FMS yields pain, but also demonstrate how the SFMA can also take you to swings, deadlifts, get-ups, push presses, etc.

What should be very enticing is that when non-medical folks are working with people in conjunction with poor physical therapists, you will clearly be the one that gets that person back to function, not the PT.
