From Jon: Each Sunday thePTDC publishes a list of the top articles from around the web in 5 different categories: bodybuilding, general health, fat loss, strength training, and nutrition.
We scan the net, but if you’d like to submit your article for consideration, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Top Article of the Week
PT – short for Personal Trainer or Physical Therapist?
I risk pointing out the obvious here, but a 4-year university education in physiotherapy qualifies someone to a much a greater extent in dealing with pain and injuries than a weekend course does. We need to remember that our job is to improve the quality of our clients’ lives, and also to stay within our scope of practise. If in doubt, refer out.
In this week’s top article, Will Levy does an astonishing job of offering numerous exercise variations that we can employ in programs and practical session delivery, for a great deal of common pains our clients may encounter.
