A Discussion About Mindful Movement
Host and NASM Master Instructor Rick Richey is joined by a special guest Dr. Mallory Fox CPT, CES, PES, FNS, WFS. The two discuss the blending of mindfulness practices with exercise to build stress resilience.  To be mindful means we focus our attention on the present moment without judgment.  By practicing mindfulness, the goal is to cultivate the ability to be present to internal thoughts, feelings, stresses, and sensations. This skill helps improve health metrics like blood pressure and heart rate and reduces stress.  But how can we do this when we have app notifications, work, family, emails, and a new way of living since the spread of COVID-19?  Even if we have the phones turned off, we might feel the urge to stay plugged in. Watch the video to see how we can all find some inner peace amid this stressful world we all live in.   Join us at this year’s #OptimaOnline Conference and get up to 2.0 Continuing Education Units.

Understanding Pathologies: Heart Disease, Diabetes, and Cancer
Personal trainers work with an array of clientele and chances are they will be training someone that has been diagnosed with heart disease, diabetes, or cancer. This episode does not discuss training these populations, but it explains these pathologies so that the CPT better understands them, what is actually happening in the body, and the complications that are associated with them. This episode is informative in nature and can help you better understand and relate to clients affected by these (either themselves or family members).

Arthritis and Osteoporosis
There are several pathologies that get in the way of living our best and most active lifestyles. Serval orthopedic issues that hinder our activities of daily living (ADLs) are arthritis and osteoporosis.  There are two forms of arthritis that we discuss in the episode: rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Additionally, osteoporosis and osteopenia are discussed. What are these pathologies? How do they affect ADLs? This episode is to help NASM Certified Personal Trainers better understand these pathologies and populations, allowing for informed discussions and training applications.

Can Chickens Fly?
The human body consists of primarily two types of muscle fibers: type I and type II. Type II fibers have two subcategories: IIa and IIx. These fibers have different characteristics, capacities, and traits. Fast vs. Slow contractile speeds. Aerobic vs. anaerobic. High vs low mitochondrial density. etc. There are also color variations.  With that said, the question "Can chickens fly?" may help us better remember the distinctions between the dark meat and relatively smaller muscles of the chicken legs and some other functions versus the white meat and much larger muscles of the chicken breast and how they relate back to type I and II muscle fibers in humans.  Enjoy the listen.

The Stabilization Endurance Training Episode
This episode discusses the Stabilization Endurance Training phase of the OPT™ Model. In this session, there is a discussion about all the components leading up to resistance training which include: flexibility (SMR and static stretching), core, balance, reactive training, and SAQ. Questions are answered like “why does NASM suggest flexibility to be done before the workout?” and “why is core done at the start instead of the end of the workout?” Then horizontal and vertical loading are discussed as we get into resistance training exercises that challenge core and/or balance. The NASM programming template that is on the downloads section of nasm.org page is used to discuss how to program a phase one program for your clients. This is an overview of the concepts and may help (aspiring) trainers better understand how to develop a base level program for clients. Important takeaways: The most unstable environment that you can safely perform an exercise while in good form is where the resistance training portion challenges the neuromuscular system. How far should someone’s ROM be? Full available pain-free range of motion without compensation. This is a good general rule – but not dogma. Sometimes limited ROM is needed for certain outcomes.

The Listener Question Episode
In this episode, Rick doesn't just focus on one topic but covers several questions that listeners have submitted over the past few months. Here are a few questions that get addressed during this episode: "Help me better understand the planes of motion?" "If a client shows knee valgus, do I have them SMR the overactive muscles before heading into the workout and before the beginning of each session?" "Do you think it is OK to have more than one niche?" "Do you guys have a podcast geared toward your other certifications yet?" "Can we get some episodes on breathing?" I hope answering multiple questions in one episode is helpful and please let us know if you have any questions you would like us to answer.

The One Where We Talk HIIT and SIT
In this episode, Rick discusses the differences in Sprint Interval Training (SIT) and High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and the benefits of both including: - Time efficiency - Health and fitness benefits - Aerobic and anaerobic performance - Better fat oxidation - Lower blood pressure - Increased insulin sensitivity - Optimized hormonal responses - Weight loss - Decreased in abdominal weight - Increased EPOC That's an impressive list and by no means exhaustive. HIIT work to rest ratio is often seen as 1:1, 1:2, and 1:3 Sprint interval training involves an all-out effort for shorter durations and longer rest. SIT work to rest ratio is often seen as 1:8 with some researchers indicated that rest is still too short! The following workout may be seen during SIT: •(1)30:240 (4×30 s bouts, 240 s [4 mins] recovery); •(2) 15:120 (8×15 s bouts, 120 s [2 mins] recovery); •(3) 5:40 (24×5 s bouts, 40 s recovery) (Islam et al, 2017) This episode contains quite a bit of research (thank you Dr. Brian Oddi) and shows empirically that the calories expended in HIIT and Sprint versus moderate-intensity training can provide increased weight loss from abdominal and visceral fat stores.

Even More Periodization and Programming
This is the final installation that overviews periodization, programming, and routines for optimizing exercise-induced outcomes and benefits. This was a high-level view of several different training programs with research discussing linear vs undulating periodization, isolated vs integrated training, and multiple different concepts of training including triphasic training, German volume training, escalated density training, split routines, and more. All provide value in their own ways and all can be added into the OPT Model to give direction to their application.

More on Periodization and Programming
Periodization and programming are not necessarily the same thing. Periodization is the cycles of training that take place. Often, we talk about macro, meso, and micro cycles. In sports, the periodization may include those concepts, but change based on the season: off-season, pre-season, in-season, and hopefully … post-season. Off-season may have several different training cycles. Early on it will be focused on recovery! After a progressive lead-in (a long micro-cycle or a single mesocycle) the programs can focus more and more intense exercises depending on the sport, but most sports that come to mind will have intense training involved at some point … which is usually the offseason. This episode will focus, not on sports programming, but routines within every period of training that should take place. These routine components that comprise a program may include the following: warm-ups, flexibility, cardio and metabolic training, core, balance, reactive/plyometrics, SAQ, resistance training, and cool-downs.

Exercise Programming and Periodization
This week we look at the differences between periodization, programming, and routines. These are often used interchangeably and should not be. There is a mean of delineating the three and refining not only how we speak to them, but also how we implement them. Briefly, the following are discussed: Periodization – division of a training program into smaller, progressive stages Macrocycle: long-term training period, usually between six months and one year My macrocycle might be my timeline to get someone through the OPT Model Mesocycle: smaller phases within the macrocycle, usually several weeks to a few months Maybe one phase of the OPT Model Microcycle: each part of the mesocycle, usually one week A one-to-two-week look at changes that need to be made to a program. This area is where true programming takes place. Programming is how the acute training variables change within that period of training to optimize training outcomes. What is an exercise ROUTINE then? - When you workout - What days you workout - What time you workout - It can be what you do o Cardio o Strength - It can be what isn’t changing that will eventually need periodization o Split routines only o Same sets / reps / exercises on repeat Enjoy this episode, and as always please provide feedback and let us know what you would like to hear more about. It can be exercise, programming, industry, business, etc. regarding the needs, goals, and desires for the NASM certified personal trainer.

The Importance of Being Certified
As an independent gym owner, I get monthly inquiries from uncertified personal trainers that have been training for many … many… years that have decided not to renew their certification. Yet they still wish to train out of my facility. Below is a small list of responses I have gotten throughout the years when I ask why they are not certified: “I could teach these courses.” “I know more than most trainers anyway because I’ve been doing this for a long time.” “It’s all a racket” … (to make you smarter… oh no!) I, being relatively educated in the space of exercise and health science, still maintain multiple certifications. I actually want to increase my education as opposed to only continuing education because a CEU requirement. So, when those that are uncertified want to explain why they should train out of my facilities in NYC, I do not balk. It is unprofessional and there is a HUGE liability issue at stake as well. If you want to become a personal trainer – you MUST get certified. Preferably NASM…;-) This episode of the NASM CPT Podcast will discuss, from my perspective, why trainers need to be certified.

Abdominal Hollowing v Abdominal Bracing
Abdominal hollowing (or the draw-in maneuver) and abdominal bracing are both incorporated by therapists, trainers, and other exercise specialists to benefit persons with lumbar instability (Vaičienė, Berškienė, Slapsinskaite, Mauricienė, & Razon, 2018). There is a tendency for professionals to pick one of these interventions while downplaying the validity and value of the other. Integrated training is based on the implementing all evidence that works during the appropriate time with an understanding of how we can optimize outcomes for our clients. We will review the research surrounding abdominal hollowing and abdominal bracing to provide a better understanding of the evidence of their practical applications. Evidence shows that deep abdominal muscles are more activated with abdominal hollowing and surface muscles more activated with abdominal bracing (Vaičienė, Berškienė, Slapsinskaite, Mauricienė, & Razon, 2018). Hollowing has shown to increase local spinal stabilizers (Lee et al., 2013; Suehiro et al., 2014; Kim & Oh, 2015; Lee et al., 2016) and LPHC stability while minimizing the facilitation of global muscle activity during exercise (Suehiro et al., 2014; Kahlaee, Ghamkhar, & Arab, 2017). Abdominal hollowing was found superior to abdominal bracing for increasing LPHC stability and leg stiffness in hopping tasks (Dupeyron, Hertzog, Micallef, & Perrey, 2013). Though it does seem that maintaining a neutral spine (Reeve & Dilley, 2009) and costodiaphragmatic (chest / belly) breathing is important to the optimization of muscle activation while performing abdominal hollowing (Ha, Kwon, Kim, & Choung, 2014). Multiple data questions the efficacy of treating LBP solely using abdominal hollowing (Unsgaard-Tondel et al., 2012; Vasseljen et al., 2012; Wong et al., 2013). McGill, arguably one of this generation’s top researchers on exercise and the spine, is not a fan of abdominal hollowing, and argues that the transverse abdominus should activate when abdominal bracing is done appropriately without the need to draw-in the navel (2016). He provides evidence that core stiffness is of far more value when it comes to protecting the back (Lee & McGill, 2015). Evidence supporting both abdominal bracing and abdominal hollowing work to increase LPHC stabilization. We are not left with a debate on efficacy of these two techniques, but application.

Integrated Flexibility Continuum
NASM provides an integrated model of flexibility that includes corrective, active, and functional flexibility categories. The specific techniques used within the Integrated Flexibility Continuum are as follows: Integrated Flexibility Continuum Corrective Flexibility – designed to increase joint ROM for shortened muscles. It is specifically for the areas of hypomobility. SMR/SMT/Foam Rolling Static Stretching Active Flexibility SMR/SMT/Foam Rolling Active Isolated Stretching Functional Flexibility SMR/SMT/Foam Rolling Dynamic Flexibility This episode talks about just because muscles “feel” tight doesn’t mean that they are in fact tight. Assessments are to be done to identify shortened muscles verses lengthened muscles. In an integrated model the progression from on type of flexibility category to another should be aspired to. As initial limits in ROM begin to increase through corrective strategies, more active techniques can be applied to provide strength to the new found ROM. Just like in the OPT model, once strength gains are made, speed can be applied. In this case, functional flexibility can include dynamic flexibility techniques where momentum and speed are added to the stretch. This integrated flexibility continuum is a brilliant, yet simple model to follow to support our client’s flexibility needs.  Key Terms:  Muscle Spindle = “Stretch-O-Meter” Golgi Tendon Organ (GTO) – “Tension-O-Meter”

Core Training Overview
NASM CPT Podcast – Core Training Overview Even the biggest bodybuilder with the best set of “Abs” may have a weak core as storied in this episode of the NASM CPT Podcast. Rick talks about the biggest person he’s ever met in real life and how his core stabilization system was … less than impressive. There’s also discussion about statistics, research, and the difference between the stabilization between each vertebrae and stabilization between the pelvis and ribcage.  Several muscles of the core stabilization system are discussed such as the transverse abdominus, diaphragm, multifidus, and more examining what they do and how they function to support the core.  Maxims to remember:  - Stabilize the spine before moving it - Core is the anchoring point of all functional movement - “You can’t have distal mobility without proximal stability” Listen to this episode of the NASM CPT podcast for insights about the core and what it’s for and why stabilization of the spine is important.

General Adaptation Syndrome and SAID Principles
Your body is apt at dealing with stress and will make adjustments as needed to cope. General Adaptation Syndrome (GAS) allows us to look at the introduction of stress to our system and a spectrum of our body’s ability to deal with it. The levels of the GAS principle are: The Alarm Reaction stage What the …!!! Increased soreness Questioning choice of exercises and sometimes exercising in general Decreased performance The Resistance stage “Good stress” aka eustress Getting used to the stress Minimized soreness  Physiologically fine with practiced exercises Increased performance The Exhaustion / Overtraining stage “Over stressed” aka distressed  Not enough recovery Irritable  Exhausted  Decreased performance The SAID principle stands for Specific Adaptations to Imposed Demands, which means your body (and mind) will adapt to the specific exercises, stresses, and other demands you impose. As long as you don’t go into the exhaustion phase of the GAS you will continue to build resistance to these stresses and adapt. Work from a place of moderate stress where you can find success and build from there! Learn more by listening to this episode of the NASM CPT podcast.
