Inner Circle Updatesmike reinold inner circle

My Last webinar recording on “5 Recommendations to Kick Start Your PT Career” is now available to watch. In this presentation, I talk about some of the important things that any student or new physical therapist or strength coach should focus on early in their career.  I’m amazed at some of the things I hear from students and see online.  

This webinar will cover:

  • Why you shouldn’t sell your soul to one specific “system”
  • The ONE most important thing you need to work on to be effective
  • How to always be learning but also gaining skill, not just knowledge
  • Why you shouldn’t rush into starting a private practice

If you have any interest in baseball performance, training, or rehabilitation, you are going to want to check out my new website at

The mission of the site is to provide cutting edge, but trustworthy, information to enhance baseball performance.  There’s too much crap on the internet right now about baseball.  I want to fix this and create an ultimate resource for every baseball player, parent, coach, rehab specialist, and strength specialist.

I’ve developed an amazing advisory board and contributors like Dr. James Andrews and Dr. Glenn Fleisig of ASMI, MLB players Josh Beckett and Craig Breslow, MLB athletic trainers Stan Conte and Ken Crenshaw, and other amazing people like Eric Cressey, Alan Jaeger, Paul Reddick, Lantz Wheeler and more.

We have a bunch of great articles, resources we recommend, and even some educational programs available already.

Stuff You Should Read

Understanding and Combatting the Elbow Injury Epidemic in Gymnastics

My man Dave Tilley has an article up on talking about how to understand and fight elbow injuries in gymnastics.  With Dave around at Champion, it’s been pretty amazing seeing all the gymnastics injuries.  It really reminds me of where we were with baseball 10-20 years ago with all the misinformation and old concepts still floating around.  If you are interested in gymnastics, be sure to follow Dave as he is really trying to change the culture and help reduce injury.  This is the first part of a great three part series from Dave:

How PTs and Coaches Can Work Together

Sarah Polacco had me on as a guest on her new podcast recently.  Sarah is a friend and great strength coach, I’m excited to hear more and more of these podcasts.  We talked about how personal trainers and coaches can work better together:

A Simple Strength Program

There is one thing Dan John does that I think most would agree on with me.  He makes complex things simple.  I love reading about all these complicated periodization schemes on the internet and then chuckle when Dan writes a simple article like this one.  Sometimes, we definitely try too hard and make things too complicated.
