29 Aug Big Problems With The Latest In Kettlebell Science

I love research. We can learn a lot from it. Each and every study I read, I respect the work that went into it. I know how much time, effort, and commitment goes into doing a research study at any level. No study is perfect. Yet, each one is a potentially important piece of the puzzle, right? So, I was really excited to see the title of the latest research study about kettlebell training. Shortly after immersing myself in the study, I found myself feeling let down and disappointed once again that another kettlebell study missed the mark. This one in a major way, which I'll explain. This article is an attempt to "bridge the gaps" between the scientific research and the "real-world" practical applications.

15 Jun Why I Walked Away From My Career As A Physical Therapist

You should probably know that this article is potentially the most painful article I've ever written.

Painful because I'm openly sharing why I chose to walk away from a great profession.

As a matter of fact, this one is going to take some courage to hit the "publish" button.

It's been several years now since I walked away from my role as a clinician.

I was an orthopedic physical therapist (hopefully, a damn good one too).

I still get a lot of questions about why I left the clinic?

Until now, I've never shared the full story, but because I'm asked about this so often, it's time. 

(*Special "thank you" to Tami and Luis for your recent questions. It was your questions that formed the basis for this article).

Keep in mind that there are lessons in this article for every reader.

Do I regret leaving PT?

I'll explain soon.

Things happen for a reason and it’s the choices we make that shape our lives.
