Knees over Toes Guy Method for Back Rehab: My thoughts

The knee-over-toe guy is trendy right now. You’ve probably heard of him. You may have tried some of his knee protocols, which might help some people. But, with backs, the problem is this: each injury is unique, and you must treat every injury with its unique pain generators. Therefore, there is no one size fits all approach to back pain.

My biggest ‘gripe,’ if you will, is while on the Mark Bell podcast where Ben “feels that we don’t know very much about the back and how to train it.” To this quote, I really don’t know what to say other than I disagree and that he should read a book or two on the back. I’ll even send him one.

But to summarize: Every exercise MUST have a specific purpose. Every exercise is a tool; there are no inherently wrong exercises, just lousy application/timing. For example, the Jefferson curl might help some in certain situations, but blindly telling people to do the Jefferson curl without knowing anything about their back injury is STUPID.

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.
