My Feature on Mike Robertson’s Physical Preparation Podcast

I was recently featured on my boi Mike Robertson’s Physical Preparation Podcast.

It was quite surreal to be interviewed by a guy who I have tremendous respect for, and who has been a huge influence on me.

MR was one of the people who I was initially exposed to when I got into this field. After reading all the cool things he wrote on t-nation, I bought most of his products, became a huge reader of his blog, and applied many of his teachings to my own training.

Zac = fanboy.

Can you imagine what it was like the first time I met him and Bill at IFAST? Like meeting rockstars, fam. Then he we are, having a conversation as peers.

Point being with this story, if there was no Mike Robertson, we wouldn’t be having this conversation right now.

The Life of A Mercenary PT

All types of mercenary shit

Here were some of the things we discussed in this podcast:

  • How I got started in the world of physical prep.
  • What life is really like in the NBA/D-League, and what it’s like to transition from therapy to performance at the highest level.
  • What skills I was comfortable with, and how he grew and evolved to take his coaching skills to the next level.
  • My biggest struggles in pro sports.
  • Movement Variability: What it is, and why you probably need more of it.
  • What it’s like to transition from the biggest stages in sport, to working in a smaller setting with a more general population.
  • How I get it all done – from working as a mercenary PT, to writing, to public speaking, etc.
  • The BIG Question.
  • A really fun lightning round where we discuss pops Daddy-o Bill Hartman, his favorite hip hop groups, why I started the Movement Debrief, and what’s up next for me.

Lat Stretch Arm Position, Exercise Programming, and Staying Neutral? – Movement Debrief Episode 10

Episode 10 of the Movement Debrief, we went straight up q&a from readers.

It was a lot of fun and I got a lot of great question from people.

Here was what we discussed:

  1. Should the arm be in internal or external rotation when stretching the lats?
  2. If general exercise works, why should we incorporate specific exercises?
  3. Why coaching exercises well is of utmost importance
  4. Is staying neutral in a good joint position important?

Enjoy.
