Questions for Nick:

  • Nick, you are kind of known for creating new exercises, what is your process when creating new and inventive exercises?
  • Which exercise are you most proud of or which one do you use the most with your clients and why?
  • We get a lot of questions about how trainers got to where they are today, what is your story?
  • I have a question about knee pain. What advice would you give a very active 44 year old male with the following symptoms:
    There is pain in one knee when decending stairs, the same pain is felt when squatting
    The pain is more severe when the knee isnt warmed up.
    Sometimes a snapping sound is heard and felt when bending the knee – no pain.
    There is no pain when walking.
    The pain limits the intensity and duration of my workouts.
    I am trying to decide if I should go to my doctor to get it checked….any advice or general discussion of knee/joint health would be appreciated. (Please dont tell me I’m getting old!!)
  • Hi my name is Matt, and I am just getting involved with MMA, and practice 2 times a week. I have trained  mainly for looks in the past, but now am needing something that will help my performance. I have been doing barbell complexes, intervals, metabolic lifting, and strength work. I just have no idea how to set up my workout for the week. For example I don’t know how many sessions of each I should do for the week, and I don’t know how to set up the order either. My weak areas would be arm strength and conditioning, So any help would be appreciated. -Matt
  • Coaches and scope of practice (trainers vs. therapist)
  • Lumbar Flexion, to flex or not to flex (also not what you think)

    Kevin – Perhaps one of the reason so few of us may be doing the Liftstrong donations is because we already have it. At least, I do. And it is a great resource. (And I’m not a trainer.) Just thought you should recognize this possible fact.

  2. Chip-

    I do, that is why I said $25 to ANY charity.
