My Huge Black Friday Sale is Back

Hey everyone, with 2018 almost over (can you believe it???), we are celebrating another awesome year at MikeReinold.com and want to say thanks to you, my readers!

Soooooo…

My HUGE Black Friday sale is back!  Starting now through Cyber Monday, you can save 25% off all my acclaimed products.  Check them all out below but act now, my Black Friday 2018 sale ends on Cyber Monday (November 26th) at midnight EST!

Be sure to use the special links below, because these special discounts are ONLY available to my readers.

 

Get Access to My Inner Circle for Only $1

My Inner Circle is my exclusive online mentorship program where I share even more great content, host live webinars, and interact with members.  There are dozens of presentations on the website that teach you even more about how I approach performance therapy and training, plus we have an awesome private Facebook Group where members get access to ask me questions and interact with others.  It’s awesome.  I humbly this that this is the best value in online education right now.  I usually don’t put this on sale, as it’s already an amazing value for the price of a couple of cups of coffee, but I wanted you to see the program yourself with a 3-day trial for only $1.

 

Master the Shoulder and Knee

For those that are truly looking for my most comprehensive programs, I have two online master programs that will teach you exactly how I evaluate and treat the shoulder and knee.  These huge online programs have different lessons going over things like the evaluation, treatment techniques, neuromuscular control exercises, and how to specifically rehabilitate specific nonoperative and postoperative injuries.  Plus, you’ll earn CEUs.

 

Download All Kevin Wilk and I’s Rehab Protocols

Did you know that Kevin Wilk, Dr. James Andrews, and I now have all our rehabilitation protocols online?  You can view and download over 175 different protocols for the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, foot, and ankle.  Our protocols provide weekly guidelines and exercises to assure you are progressing at a safe and effective pace.  There are protocols for tons of nonoperative injuries, postoperative injuries, and even our exercise programs and interval return to sport programs.

 

Learn Instrumented Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

iastm technique 2 cuppingInstrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, or IASTM, was a game changer for me when I first started incorporating it into my manual therapy.  Since then, I would say we all perform it on nearly every patient at Champion.  There are many programs that want to charge you hundreds for the training and even thousands for the tools, which I think is insane.  That’s why Erson Religioso and I created our online program teaching you how to quickly, easily, and affordably start perform IASTM.  Save 25% off on our program and get started right away.

 

Learn Eric Cressey and I’s Approach to Functional Rehab and Training

For those looking for more advanced functional rehabilitation and performance training information, my good friend Eric Cressey and I have our Functional Stability Training programs that teach you our approach.  We have different programs for the core, upper body, lower body, and optimizing movement.  All are 25% off this week.

 

 

Thanks everyone for another awesome year at MikeReinold.com.  Hope you enjoy the holidays and learn a little bit at the same time!  But act now, my Black Friday 2018 sale ends on Cyber Monday (November 26th) at midnight EST!

 

Wow, has it been 10 years already?

Wow, has it been 10 years already?

I am super excited to be celebrating my 10 year anniversary of MikeReinold.com.  I knew that I started my website in 2008, but honestly, I swore it was in the fall.  So I sat down this morning to figure it out and noticed I actually wrote my first blog post 10 years ago last week!

I wrote a review of a journal article on ACL injuries.  For sentimental reasons, you should check it out.  My first blog post from 10 years ago:

I was pretty nervous to look at it.  It’s been so long, who knows what I actually even wrote?!  And what I do and how I think has changed so much since then!  But, you know what?  I was actually pretty amazed at how the article is quite similar to what I still write today.  A quick review with clinical implications.

 

How This All Started

That is exactly why I started this website, to help others grow and stay current.  To take new research and discuss the clinical implications. To make the complicated more simple. My plan from day 1 was to share my journey with you by writing about what I am learning and how this is changing what I do every day.

Today, everyone wants to be an expert on social media, but I always advise our students and interns to not try to “fake it ’til you make it” and try to proclaim expertise online.  It’s easy to spot a lack of authenticity.  Rather, just humbly share your journey and what you are learning.

I’m not going to lie, though, I started this website for me.

To keep me sharp, to keep me growing, to push me to never stop learning.  I always recommend others get into education.  Honestly, it helps you as much as the person learning from you.

I started my career off as a clinician that spent my spare time in the evening conducting clinical research, and then my spare time on the weekends traveling around the world teaching.  It was an amazing experience, and something that really made me grow as a clinician during the first 5+ years of my career.

Then a funny thing happened.

I actually landed my dream job with the Boston Red Sox.

While this was exactly what I wanted to be doing everyday, I literally worked everyday (all day…) and stopped teaching.

I simply couldn’t.  There was no time to travel.

After a few seasons, I felt that I was getting stale.  I started trying to figure out a way I continue educating, because I missed it so much, and I missed how much it pushed me to keep growing.

I actually remember the day I decided to start this website.  I don’t think I ever told anyone this story before…

We were in Yankee Stadium, and I walked out of the clubhouse onto the bench during the game.  I sat down next to the other athletic trainers and I clearly remember asking them, “hey, do you think people would read a website if I review journal articles as they come out?  Would that be helpful?”

That was it.  What a ride it’s been.

I found an image of one of the early versions of the website (very web 1.0 haha):

Mike Reinold Original Blogger Website

Take a closer look and notice I had under 500 readers and 219 twitter followers hahaha!

And people love cracking up at Lenny and I from some of our earlier work:

old Mike and lenny

While my site has changed a lot and I personally got LASIK surgery, dropped a few pounds, and even started wearing slimmer clothing, I’m pretty proud of how the content has remained consistently impactful for people for 10 years.

I took a look back and also notice that I also recently published my 1000th blog post (missed that too…  I guess I’m not big into milestones, haha).

I have consistently published ~2 articles a week for 10 years.  The website is visited by 2 million people a year now.  We’ve expanded to have a ton of video content on Youtube, a podcast, and now a dizzying amount of micro-content on my social media accounts like Instagram each and every day.  And I have slowly developed a ton of great online courses for people to learn from me at anytime, from all over the world.

But most importantly, I’m still having a blast!  Because I am still learning and still growing.  So while I admit I started this website for me, I sure hope you’ve learned from it as well.

 

So What’s Next?  It’s Going to Be Amazing…

Earlier this year, I knew I was entering the 10th year of the website, so I sat down to brainstorm the future.

In the past, I sort of just used this website as a brain dump, just sharing what I am currently thinking about.  But for the first time, I think I really have mapped out an amazing plan to truly help a ton of people.  I talked to a lot of people, surveyed everyone on my email list, and essentially found out what people need to take their careers to the next level.  This goes for students, new grads, young clinicians, and even veterans with a ton of experience.

I’ve mapped out everything I want to do to help everyone along their journey and it’s all coming together.  I think I got it.

Here’s just a sneak peak:

  • A revamped Inner Circle.  This is going to be big.  There is going to be a ton of new content helping people get started the right way in their career, and for everyone to stay current and ahead of the game with their skills.  I have 1000’s of people in my Inner Circle that rave about my program, however I’m not kidding when I say I think it’s going to be 10x better.
  • My system of Performance Therapy and Training.  I’m not saying that what I do is better than anyone else, but after 20 years, I have learned a ton to shape what I do today and what we have built at Champion.  I love to systemize things.  And soon (early 2019???) I will be releasing my FULL system of what I do.  How I evaluate people, how I assess movement with our integrated movement assessment, how I perform my manual therapy and corrective exercises, and how I build my functional training programs to optimize mobility and performance.  This is going to be HUGE, and I think is going to be really eye opening for everyone that feels overwhelmed.  There is a need for this.  So many people are showing you bits and pieces that people don’t know where to go.  I will show you exactly what to do.  You’re going to love it.

So to all of my readers, thanks for joining me on this ride.  Happy 10 year anniversary.  Here’s to the next 10 years!  THANK YOU!

Do me a favor, comment below and let me know how my website has helped you in your career, I’d love to hear about it!

~ Mike

Best Articles, Videos, and Podcasts of 2016

Wow, can you believe 2016 has flown by so fast? For those that are new to the website, or may have missed some of my articles, I love to wrap up the year with an article featuring the best posts of the year.

I am more amazed every year as we continue to grow together. We had more than 2 million people visit MikeReinold.com this year (a number that amazes me everyday), we had over 300,000 people tune in to the new podcast we launched this year, and we have had 1000’s of people watching my Inner Circle webinars.

In addition to all the great content, I’ve been super busy with new and updated educational products:

Wow, what a year! Thanks so much to everyone. Check out the most popular articles, videos, and podcasts of 2016, and I’ll see everyone next year.

 

Top Article of 2016

This year’s most popular article was a bit of a surprise to me! I know that my readers often have a bit of a baseball interest, but this is the first year that a baseball related article has been the top article of the year!

This article took me months to develop in my mind, but years to come up with some of the research included. Reducing injuries in baseball is a huge area of interest to me, and unfortunately we aren’t getting better, we are getting worse.

The popularity of this article hit mainstream as publications like The Boston Globe actually discussed it along with some noteworthy journalists like Peter Gammons.

 

Most Popular Articles of 2016

This year featured a nice variety of popular posts, including two guest posts!

 

Most Popular Ask Mike Reinold Podcast Episodes of 2016

Early in 2016 we kicked off our new podcast where we sought to answer YOUR questions on a weekly basis. We really love doing this and hope you are learning from the episodes. Hang out with us for 15 minutes like you are part of our staff meetings at Champion!

We published 49 episodes this year!  We just recorded our 50th with a special surprise guest appearance, which is coming in early January!  Here are some of the most popular:

 

Most Popular Inner Circle Webinars of 2016

Each month I publish an exclusive presentation for my Inner Circle members. This year I shifted away from always doing a live webinar and more towards recording some of our staff inservices at Champion. I really like this format and found it to be very educational for all. Here are the most popular Inner Circle webinars of the year:

This course provides a TON of great information and the home format allows you plenty of time to learn and study the material. Also, with the format of the course, I found that I could apply new techniques and exercises in the clinic on a weekly basis as I studied each new topic. I would definitely recommend that course to all therapists who treat the shoulder.” – SB, Gilbert

It is worth your time.” – K Lierman PT, ATC Hillsboro Oregon

Upcoming Seminar at Champion: Bridging the Gap From Rehab to Performance

I am really excited to announce that we will be hosting our second annual seminar at Champion PT and Performance in Boston, MA!  We want to offer a new seminar each year that will be of interest to rehabilitation and fitness specialists.  

This year, we will be discussing Bridging the Gap from Rehab to Performance, and the agenda is looking awesome.  I’m really excited about the seminar!

There is some information below but for even more info and to register now click the link below.  There is an early bird discount for those that register by May 1st:

I really hope to see you at the seminar!

 

Bridging the Gap from Rehab to Performance

bridging the gap from rehab to performance seminar

Traditional rehabilitation programs following injury or surgery have focused on restoring basic function to the involved joint or tissue.  As the physical demands of our patients continue to increase, the rehabilitation process must consider incorporating a more comprehensive approach to restoring not only function, but optimal performance.  By integrating strength and conditioning principles into the rehabilitation process, rehabilitation specialists can better prepare the patient for returning to full activity.

As the rehabilitation phase advances, a comprehensive system to progress from traditional rehabilitation to functional strength and conditioning programs must be followed.  Too often the transition between rehabilitation and strength and conditioning is not seamless or designed to continue to optimize performance, while ensuring progress.

In this seminar, myself and the team at Champion PT and Performance will show how we optimize function and performance throughout the rehabilitation process and learn how to safely and effectively transition people from injury recovery to advanced strength and conditioning programs.

Personal trainers and strength coaches will benefit from learning how we integrate rehabilitation concepts into our programs to properly assess, customize programs, and advanced people into strength and conditioning programs.  Likewise, rehabilitation specialists will benefit from learning how we integrate appropriate strength and conditioning concepts through the acute and advanced phases of rehabilitation.
