Upper Left Performance #23 Dr. Michelle Boland - What We Say Matters: Building Positive Relationships with People, Organizing Knowledge and the Many Facets of Hard Work

Read more

Dr. Michelle Boland is the owner of Michelle Boland Training and has previous experience as a strength and conditioning coach for Northeastern University. Michelle also has her MS in S&C and her PhD in Exercise Physiology from Springfield College where she was mentored by Pat Davidson. Needless to say, with all this experience Michelle is one of the more insightful minds in the business and she dropped some serious knowledge on this episode.

In the show, Michelle talks about the importance of consolidating and organizing information to better access and apply it. We also discuss the importance of language in relationships, the state of a college S&C education, how sport coaches and S&C coaches can bridge gaps and the multi-faceted concept of hard work, which Michelle wrote about in a blog post found at https://www.michelleboland-training.com/blog/hard-work

Michelle’s perspective is second to none and I was beyond pumped about what a tremendous conversation this was. I highly recommend you check out her website where she is offering training and mentorship. You can also follow here on IG @dr.michelleboland

RPR Episode 4 - Dr. Michelle Boland

Read more

Dr. Michelle Boland joins the show today to dive into coach’s education, models, rigid mindsets, movement, and, of course, programming. Right off the bat, Michelle and I get into her background, talk about our mutual grad school experiences, and get a look into why Michelle left collegiate strength and conditioning to join the private world.

From there, Michelle and I spend our time talking about education and how ridiculous it is that people keep trying to have “right vs. wrong” conversations. As opposed to thinking critically, learning as much as you can, and asking meaningful questions like “why do the athletes need to do these things?” I will mention that if you are squatting on a physioball, though, then you are wrong. OH SO WRONG. So please stop.

To wrap things up, we get into programming for gen pop clients vs. high-level collegiate athletes and share our two cents on our deepest desire for strength and conditioning as a field to please move past Powerlifting as the “gold standard.” All in all, it’s an hour chock full of actionable takeaways, and hopefully, you leave realizing that if you are still straight bar back squatting your athletes, you should stop. Unless your athlete is competing in Powerlifting, of course.

Episode Highlights:

3 min: Michelle’s foray into academia

13 min: Why Michelle left collegiate strength and conditioning to go private

20 min: All things coach’s education

26 min:  Using exercises themselves as the intervention

32 min: The importance of context and environment when we talk about pain

34 min: Knowing what not to do is key

42 min:  Michelle gets into programming for gen pop

48 min: Michelle gets into off-season programming for elite hockey players

56 min: Michelle’s favorite resources

Michelle Boland on Resets, Asymmetry and Variability Days

Read more

Michelle Boland is the owner of Michelle Boland Training and coaches at Northeastern University Sports Performance. She works with women’s ice hockey, field hockey and rowing, as well as assisting with men’s basketball. Michelle has a bachelor’s degree in nutrition, master’s degree in strength and conditioning, and Ph.D in Exercise Physiology.

One thing I take very seriously is when former guests on the show refer me to other coaches and trainers. In this case, the one and only Pat Davidson told me that I should interview Michelle – and let’s be honest, when Pat Davidson tells you to do something, you best do it!

In this show, Michelle and I talk about the role and value of what she calls “variability training days,” how to instantly improve your exercise cuing, and her thoughts and solutions to getting more women into the world of physical preparation.

Show Outline

Here’s a brief overview of what we covered in this week’s show:

  • Shameless Plug:
  • Show Intro:
    • IFAST is 10-years old!
    • Jess and I’s 14-year wedding anniversary
    • MR’s Monologue: Stop Complicating the Training Process
  • Interview with Michelle:
    • How Michelle got started in the world of physical preparation.
    • An overview of her career arc, including her current gig at Northeastern.
    • A peek inside her model, including the differences between performance and health.
    • Breathwork in S&C: How she incorporates it, and how she gets athletes to buy-in.
    • How Michelle strikes a balance between serious training and “rehabby” type exercises.
    • Why you should change up the style of your cuing between big-bang, compound lifts and lighter accessory exercises.
    • Her thoughts on asymmetry, and how it impacts your program design process.
    • The BIG Question.
    • An awesome lightning round where we discuss her career highlight as a coach, the books she’s reading right now, her greatest struggle as a female in S&C, and what’s next for Michelle Boland.

108: Spearheading Functional Balance in Performance Driven Training with Michelle Boland | Sponsored by SimpliFaster

Read more
Today’s episode features strength coach and educator, Michelle Boland, Ph.D.   Michelle is the owner of Michelle Boland training, and earned her Ph.D. from Springfield College.  She coaches at Northeastern University where she works with women’s ice hockey, field hockey and rowing, as well as assisting with men’s basketball.  She is one of the most intelligent and forward thinking coaches in the field, and I’m thrilled to have her on the show.

I’ve been interested in the work of the postural restoration institute for some time, having it first recommended to me years ago by Dr. Mike T Nelson.  Since then, I’ve taken three courses and hosted numerous experts on this podcast who are experts in both PRI practice and its integration into sports performance training as well as human movement and fitness.   

The core tenants of PRI that are a game changer for training humans is that the body is fundamentally asymmetrical and that the position of our breathing cylinder is of highest priority in making lasting changes in athletic balance and function.  This being said, most coaching cues and corrections that are in response to an “imbalance” such as shifting to one side in a squat or one arm rising faster than the other in the bench press, do not deliver results that fit with the true function of the body.

To that end, Michelle is a field leader in the integration of these concepts into performance training, and one of the smartest guests we’ve had (which is saying a lot given our incredible lineup).  Today I pick her brain on integrating PRI principles into core components of sport performance, including bilateral sagittal plane lifts (squat/bench), single leg training, trunk training, and frontal plane training.  Michelle’s work represents a science and practice based, practical application to getting athletes functional and strong for their sport.  

Today’s episode is brought to you by SimpliFaster, supplier of high-end athletic development tools, such as the Freelap timing system, kBox, Sprint 1080, and more.  
Key Points:

Michelle’s background and influences in the field
How postural restoration institute principles have impacted Michelle’s coaching of the sagittal plane bilateral lifts
Impingement versus muscle oriented lifting strategies
Single leg work in light of postural restoration ideals
Trunk and core based work
Percentage of training work based off of feel versus performance
Specific training thoughts on the frontal plane

“It’s about understanding proximal position, and how it prevents or promotes movement”

“There’s no absolute way to lift weights, but there is different strategies”

“If someone is doing a movement and feeling things in their joints, you have to question what they are using to move that weight with”

“Strategies are what people feel working during an exercise”

“I have a continuation of health and performance, health is very sensory based, incorporating a lot of frontal plane and transverse, athletes think a lot about what they are feeling.  On the other end of the spectrum is performance… going back to the big lifts, that’s where you would find the big lifts”

“If I have someone who isn’t feeling hamstring (in a position) it is pelvic position that is driving that”

“Some people perceive exercise as a feeling of fatigue or tired or soreness, and that’s how I get sensory information”

“Right now, we have two days of (big lifts)…. Then I have one or two days a week I call it a variability day, we are doing low threshold frontal plane and transverse plane focused activities… we are not trying to make them weightlifters or powerlifters, I don’t want to make that their only strategy… then the other two days a week are just conditioning days”

“Skating is not side to side, the slideboard is not skating”  

“I have to know what athletes are already getting, what they already have… and show them the opposite of that”
