The Art of Breath Clinich (From the Power Speed and Endurance webpage - http://powerspeedendurance.com/event/georgia-art-of-breath-clinic/)
If we don’t breathe, we die. Although we all know this simple fact breathing remains the most underutilized component of health and human performance. The Art of Breath (AoB) is a program developed to give participants an experience based understanding of how breathing can affect both short term performance and long term health.
Through a variety of simple and effective teaching tools we will help illuminate this powerful practice and help you grab this low hanging fruit.
The AoB purpose is to help facilitate a deeper understanding of the physiological process so that each person can ultimately tailor their own breath practice to his or her individual needs.

Rob Wilson (@preparetoperform)
Rob Wilson comes from a formal education in manual therapy with 15+ years of experience as both a practitioner and teacher. He resides in Virginia Beach, VA with his wife Thomi where they own and operate CrossFit Virginia Beach. In addition to working with the Power Speed Endurance team Rob is also a member of the world renowned MobilityWod staff under the direction of Dr. Kelly Starrett.

Like many coastal kids Rob grew up surfing and skating as well and developed an affinity for the ocean and Nature at an early age.
Rob Wilson is a passionate teacher to the core. Throughout the course of his career as a therapist one thing became abundantly clear; it’s better to teach a person to fish. Without education athletes are left to unknowingly repeat patterns of behavior that may not be pursuant to the actual desired outcome. That is to say the best remedy is often understanding. Rob’s journey is about developing a deeper understanding of human performance to better serve those who wish to actualize their potential.
Rob’s underpinning philosophy is borrowed from the tenets of Jeet Kune Do:
Research your own experience
Absorb what is useful
Reject what is useless
Add what is specifically your own

Rank #6: E212 | Dr. Andy Galpin
Dr. Andy Galpin is a tenured Professor in the Center for Sport Performance at CSU Fullerton. He was born and raised in beautiful Rochester, WA. In addition to being one of the world's leading muscle physiologist he also co-founded the Barbell Shrugged podcast with his buddies Doug Larson, Mike Bledsoe & Chris Moore (RIP).
On Episode Andy talks about understanding how to coach with empathy. Empathy is defined as "the ability to understand and share the feelings of another," often times in the world of strength & conditioning coaches judge other coaches methods and tactics without any context to understand the method or drill. Andy's recommendation is to think of 3 instances where the seemingly "wrong" action could be right. Typically if you do that you'll end up realizing that most of the time they aren't wrong.
After the education on empathy we get into a discussion on Andy's new book Unplugged which aims to teach us how to evolve from technology to upgrade your fitness, performance & consciousness.

Rank #7: E218 | Nick St. Louis of The Foot Collective
On Episode 218 of the Doc and Jock Podcast we catch up with Nick St. Louis of the Foot Collective. The Foot Collective is a group of Canadian physical therapists on a mission to help humans reclaim strong, functional and pain free feet through foot health education.
Every human has 2 feet and most of those feet aren’t working like nature intended. Your feet form the foundation for your body – without a strong foundation we compensate and eventually run into problems. Most people Nick sees with dysfunctional (not working properly) feet don’t have foot pain. They have problems upstream – low back pain, hip imbalances, knee pain – and most of those problems are a result of a problem with their foundation. Spread the word to anyone you know and help create awareness of the importance of foot health. Telling friends and family about The Foot Collective means giving them the power to change their health and access quality information about their body for free.

Rank #9: E215 | Chronic Pain How To Fix It
On Episode 215 of the Doc and Jock Podcast Doc Danny sits down to talk about chronic pain. Chronic pain can be a weird thing. Take someone with lower back for example: often times patients complain of chronic pain of the lower back and as an assessment Danny will ask the patient to bend over and touch their toes and their response is to FREAK OUT. However when they are leaving Danny's practice they'll have no problem hinging to get their purse/bag. The point is that often times the fear of pain is worse than the pain itself. On this episode Danny explains how to treat someone in this situation and help get them past their chronic pain.

Rank #18: E220 | Snatch Balance for Longevity
Episode 220 of the Doc and Jock Podcast special one. For the first time in a long time Doc Danny & Coach Joe got together in the same place to talk about the snatch balance how it's the MOST important movement on the planet.
Olympic weightlifters use the snatch balance to improve their speed & strength into the bottom of the snatch. However it's probably one of the most beneficial lifts for life. If you look at the movement, the requirements of flexibility in the snatch balance are so high that if you can master the movements it what would normally be a ACL tear in sport and makes it a knee sprain. The positional strength requirement of the snatch balance translate to an elderly person who's slip in fall is just an embarrassing moment rather than it being a trip to the E.R.
On this episode we talk about how to mobilize for the snatch balance, how to scale it and then how to make it perfect once you own the movement.
