April 2020 Gray Institute Podcast
April 2020  Gray Institute Podcast Show Notes Dr. Gary Gray answers the following questions Question 1 from Sharon Tash If the abs and lumbar spine are designed for stability, when doing an overhead reach in the sagittal plane, should the movement come from the thoracal cylinders since they should be the mobile part of the spine? Also when going in the front plane side to side, does the movement come from the thorax? Clarification would be most helpful. I work with women 50+ and the average age is 65. Thank you. Question 2 from Fiona (Fi) Cressy A friend’s son (who is hoping to study either medicine or physio from September) asked me for some information about what exactly is over-pronation. Question 3 from Hayes Engholm As you know in PT school we are taught to load certain musculature with one dimensional exercises to promote muscle hypertrophy such as weighted knee extension and heavy XXX squats to promote quadriceps hypertrophy. My question is for a bodybuilder athlete. How can a therapist/coach promote quadriceps hypertrophy utilizing a three dimensional approach rather than using a one dimensional approach such as knee extensions or by consistently overloading the XXX squat pattern.

Gray Institute Podcast January 2020
January 2020 Gray Institute Podcast Show Notes Gary Gray discusses and answers the question from Dr. Brian Rafool.  "I think you would agree that it is important to expose the nervous system to potentially harmful stresses and motions, helping an individual to be better prepared for the inevitable when it occurs at real speed. Isn’t it just as important to expose individuals to ideally centrated joints, posture, and diaphragmatic control? Do you feel this is a waste of time because those gains will not effectively transfer in the heat of the battle?" Gary Gray answers this  question from Russia. What will I be able to do after I complete 3DMaps®?

Gray Institute Podcast. Episode 5. December 2019
December 2019 Gray Institute Podcast Show Notes Gary Gray discusses  a question from Matthew Haley in regards to  performing exercises with a pt/client with scoliosis. Do you encourage movement mainly in the pattern that goes opposite the curve to encourage new pattern and neuromuscular control and avoid moving in the already dysfunctional pattern, or is there some value in moving in old pattern (into the curve so to speak) in all 3 planes to encourage good mobility even in that pattern? Doug Gray chats continuing education with Jason Hamera. Jason Hamera graduated the GIFT program in 2015 and has since been involved in the PlayCoachMate Program within GIFT, Being in the fitness industry for 12 years, Jason has developed a passion for effective communion and teaching, which he fulfills via his role of Director of Education for Procedos. From training private clients, creating fitness curriculums, and leading international workshops, Jason strives to spark curious desire to learn in all those he meets as he refines his life’s purpose: Enhancing and inspiring the lives of others! Gary Gray answers this  question. In 3D Maps is it appropriate to perform the analysis in Mobility and Stability separately and come up with RSC for each or is the RSC only valid when combined into Mostability?
