1. How has the field of sports medicine/performance changed in the last five years? Where do you see the field headed in the next five years

1. A little more science in the field that is being used. Science has been and always will be the basis for S&C however not everyone subscribed to or  understood it. The FMS test is another big influence, at least in my instance, that has happened recently. My hope is that there is a better realization that the basics work every time all the time. There is a lot of new methods most of which aren't the most effective choices; the methods are new but the science is not.

 

2. Athlete monitoring and sports analytics has emerged as leading topics within Sports Medicine and Performance Training, how has this field influenced your practice?

Well, some of these analytics have been around for longer than people think. I remember in the 80's a soccer athlete of mine was coming back from Europe where they were testing for lactate. But, if looking at your data (testing scores and literature) and designing programs from the information makes you a slave then I have been guilty for 30 years. That's what your supposed to do!!!! Intuition of what might happen in the future is one thing but ignoring the numbers is a mistake.

 

3. What can attendees expect to hear from you at the 2013 BSMPG Summer Seminar? How may your lecture impact their practice on Monday morning?

Expect to hear what 30 years of experience has revealed. Not what I thought might have happened or what should have happened but rather "this is what I did and this is what happened". Don't tell me for example, that the Olympic lifts are dangerous after I tell you that I have not had one injury related to the Olympic lifts in 30 years. Or that overhead pressing is bad for the shoulder without giving one shred of evidence confirming the notion. In other words, what I do might not fit in your program or your philosophy but don't come to the conclusion that what someone has done cannot be done.

The Man That Wants To Kill Crunches

Posted by Boston Sports Medicine and Performance Group on Wed, Oct 31, 2012 @ 07:10 AM

 

Dr. Stuart McGill  

After three decades of figuring how out the spine works, Stuart McGill has come to loathe sit-ups. It doesn’t matter whether they are the full sit-ups beloved by military trainers or the crunch versions so ubiquitous in gyms. “What happens when you perform a sit-up?” he asks. “The spine is flexed into the position at which it damages sooner.”

The professor of spine biomechanics at the University of Waterloo knows a thing or two about snapping spines. In his lab, McGill proudly shows off a machine that’s probably created more disc herniations than any other in the world. “We get real [pig] spines from the butcher and we compress them, shear them and bend them to simulate activities such as golf swings and sit-ups, and watch as unique patterns of injury emerge.” A disc has a ring around it, and the middle, the nucleus, is filled with a mucus-like liquid. Do a sit-up and the spine’s compression will squeeze the nucleus. On his computer, McGill shows how the nucleus can work its way out of the disc, hit a nerve root and cause that oh-so-familiar back pain. “From observing the way your total gym routine is performed, we can predict the type of disc damage you’re eventually going to have.”

 

While there are lots of ways to injure a back, the sit-up is an easily preventable one. According to his research, a crunch or traditional sit-up generates at least 3,350 newtons (the equivalent of 340 kg) of compressive force on the spine. The U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health states that anything above 3,300 newtons is unsafe.

So McGill suggests replacing sit-ups with exercises to strengthen the core while not bending the spine:
