Ultimate Training Program

to Get Out of Hip Pain and Back to Training

A training program to help get you out of pain and back to training the lifts you love.

Tired of Painful Hips During Squats, Olympic Lifts and Sumo Deadlifts?

You know what I'm talking about.  That aching pain in the front of the hip during the bottom of a squat.  You want to go deep but every time you do it hurts.  Squatting and olympic lifts go from your favorite lifts in the gym to your least favorite movements.  

Maybe it's also during sumo deadlifts.  Locking those out can be dreadful with a painful hip.  Sometimes it's like you don't even want to lock out your reps because of how uncomfortable it feels.  

Hip pain sucks.  Plain and simple.

The process of getting out of pain can be complex and confusing as well.  As an athlete it's really tough to know what to do about these injuries and maybe more importantly what NOT to do in order to fix this issue.  As an athlete you're left trying to figure out how the heck to get out of pain and why this even happened in the first place. 

  • Is my technique wrong on my lifts?  
  • Is more mobility the answer?  What about foam rolling? 
  • Is rest the best cure? Am I hurting myself by continuing to train?
  • What about rehab exercises?  Does the hip need strengthening?

In the end you're left confused and frustrated, repeating the same mistakes, staying in pain and not improving.

Hi, I'm Dan.  I'm a doctor of physical therapy.  I work every day getting people like yourself out of pain and back to training. 

Want to learn how to rehabilitate your hip pain and stay pain free for the long haul?

Hip pain is easily one of the most frequent problems that I encounter at the gym.  It can really interfere with your training goals.  If your hip hurts bad enough, olympic lifts, squats and sumo deadlift progress can really grind to a halt.  

Unfortunately, some doctors and physical therapists don't always understand the situation you're in.  You love training and you went to the doctor to figure out how to get back to training. 

Often times the advice is exactly the opposite of what you want to hear, "just stop squatting".  You wouldn't have gone to the doctor in the first place if they were going to tell you that.   What you really want is someone to guide you back to what you love, which is hard training.

This disconnect between medical providers and athletes leads you to seek advice in strange places. You'll ask friends, search online forums and try bogus rehabilitation techniques from online training gurus.

There is a lot of misinformation and poor advice floating around in the training world.  Some people end up causing more harm then good when attempting to troubleshoot their issues.

Meanwhile, you're left to suffer with hip pain and no one to help you...

How are we going to get back to what we love???

Olympic Lifts?


Deadlifts and other lower body exercises?

So here's the problem in a nutshell...

  • Hip Injuries Really Limit Your Ability to Train
    Hip pain is common in weight lifting and can restrict your ability to squat and deadlift the way you want.  Rehabilitation is complicated and the process of getting better is confusing and frustrating.
  • Doctors and Therapists Aren't Always Thoroughly Equipped to Deal with Hip Injuries
    Many healthcare providers don't exercise at all, let alone work with athletes to get them back to training in the gym.  They often won't have the understanding or competency to get you back.

  • Athletes Don't Trust Healthcare Providers
    Due to a lack of understanding and knowledge of what our athletes want to get back to, athletes become weary of advice from medical professionals.

  • Athletes Get Bad Advice
    Athletes are left looking for advice from sub-par sources like friends or online forums.  Often times this information is inaccurate and potentially dangerous.

  • Hip Pain is Never Resolved or Gets Worse...

So what are we to do?

In reality, we need guidance from experts who do this every day.  You also need guidance from experts who actually understand what you're trying to get back to.  You need a guide who walks the talk. You need someone who trains like you and has a proven track record of helping others get to where you want to be...
