11 May Correctly doing the McGill Big 3 EliteFTS article
Correct Application and Execution of the McGill Big 3
I wrote this article because of how much disinformation is spread throughout the lifting and physical therapy world. It’s easier to write or do a video and link people to it after a while! Let me know what you think.
“It’s been ten years since I initially visited Dr. Stuart McGill, which you can read about here in the Elitefts published series, A Day with Dr. Stuart McGill. Over the last ten years, I’ve learned more than I ever thought I could. Still, I’ve made mistakes, perpetuated misconceptions, and confused myself and others with poorly communicated descriptions and newbie-like assumptions about back pain, especially when I first returned from my trip to see McGill in 2013. However, each day I’m improving at understanding, sharing, and helping others with back pain.
This article aims to help those who want to utilize the McGill Big 3 and clarify things I see from clients daily, and you knew this was coming: people on the internet. The errors I see range from a poor understanding of the purpose of the Big 3 and improper application to poor form and execution. Nothing can replace rolling up your sleeves, reading the information, and hearing it from the ‘horse’s mouth,’ in their context, how it was meant to be presented.”
