Seeing how metal music is basically my favorite music in the whole wide world, I wanted to share a couple of tunes with you all from some bands I’ve been listening to lately. Music is a pretty important aspect in my life and I love sharing it with people, especially fellow metal heads. Since I first joined...

I haven’t really given any updates on my training lately, so I figured I would give you all a quick glimpse. Its been about 9 months probably since the last time I was doing triphasic. In between that time I’ve pretty much been running 5 3 1, which as I have mentioned before, I’m pretty...

There have been a lot of changes this summer, and Mid-South Spine and Sports Performance has been no exception. Since moving to the new location in May, we have added multiple services and extended times out for members and public to provide more access to more types of care, more efficiently. Along with these changes...

There are few bands who can pull off a cover like Devildriver does with Sail. They take a catchy, popular song and add just enough metal to make it worth listening to. Put your horns up and rock out to Sail by Devildriver.

In practice (private or team sports), there are a wide spectrum of injuries that can occur in many different places. Today’s world of information undoubtably arms patients with more knowledge of their body. It is not uncommon for a patient to beat me to the punch and ask whether or not their problem is a...

The internet is LITTERED with articles, blogs, and advertising with titles like “40 things you have been wrong about..” or “Why you are wrong about xyz.”  While they often contain valuable insight, there is really no one admitting that they have, in fact, been wrong.  I am going to take this opportunity to be transparent...

This past weekend I competed in the 2nd United States Strongman National Championships. Going into this event was a little rough.  As I have mentioned in previous blogs, I followed a deadlift down a little hard last month and broke a bone in my wrist, causing tons of swelling and bruising.  I also sadly didn’t...

As the big highlight of my summer so far, I was able to help once again with United States Strongman’s National Championships in Louisville, KY. This year I was unable to treat at the event due to the Kentucky Chiropractic laws not allowing the purchase of temporary licenses from chiropractors licensed outside of Kentucky. Instead I...

So you’ve just got done with a competition, and the summer is coming up. You’d like to give your body a break from the grind of meet prep training. You’re making the transition over to hypertrophy-style training to try to get some bigger “gunz.” You know what they say, “suns out, guns out.” “Curls for...

Slipknot has been putting out killer numetal sounds for several decades now. Even with the loss of their previous drummer, The Devil in I is one of those songs that even people who don’t like metal can get behind. Warning: Music video contains disturbing images that some people may find offensive…or freaking awesome.

Over the last 18 months I have been focused on bodybuilding as my sole training goal: putting on as much muscle as possible while limiting body fat accumulation. I feel as though I’ve done a pretty solid job of that as I am the heaviest I have ever been at 260 while still keeping my...

Coach Christian Anto has started a series on the differences between remote coaching and personal training, and when to opt for one or the other.  Both have distinct advantages and disadvantages, which I will leave to his series to explain.  I would like to allow some insight in how to get the most as a...

As you may or may not know Ms. Annie Gunshow does my programming. We’ve been working together for about 4 months and it’s going really well. We talked the other day about how everything is going and I told her how I think my shoulders are lagging and I wanted to try adding more frequency...

First off, as a disclaimer, I’m not going to sit here on my high horse and talk about all the things I know or do that you should know and do too. I’m a pretty big on the concept that one of the best ways in invoking a change is to go ahead and own the...

While She Sleeps does a nice job of blending punk and metal together in their song Four Walls. Great song to jam out to in the car or throw around the iron in the gym. I give it two thumbs ups Bad Ass Lyrics So when the saints go marching in They won’t be singing...

I sometimes wonder if other industries are full of so many fads as the fitness industry. It seems someone is constantly putting out some new training style, new diet plan, new health tips that has everyone worked up until the next trend comes along. You gotta be quick if you’re gonna make it on this...
