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.”

Brian is a world-class powerlifter with over two decades of elite and pro-level powerlifting under his belt. Coming back from a devastating back injury in 2012 that broke multiple bones and that most experts said he would never recover from, he has returned to the pinnacle of world-class lifting (while 100% pain and symptom-free) and is now dedicated to helping others avoid the same mistakes that he made in the past through private and group coaching in Jacksonville, FL. Brian’s impressive recovery has given him the opportunity to teach and deliver talks to physical therapists, chiropractors, medical doctors, professional strength & conditioning coaches and experts from all facets of sport, on how to avoid injury, while building anti-fragile strength and resilience in athletes.
