Ultimate Training Program

to Get Out of Shoulder Pain and Back to Training

A 12 week training program and educational course to help get you out of pain and back to training the lifts you love.

Tired of Painful Shoulders During Bench Press, Olympic Lifts and Other Upper Body Exercises?

  • Shoulder pain is an enormous obstacle that keeps athletes from training the lifts they love.
  • Athletes and coaches often don't know what to do about these injuries and more importantly what NOT to do in order to fix this issue.
  • Therapists don't always have the knowledge to bridge the gap between basic rehabilitation and high level performance.
  • Athletes are left frustrated, repeating the same mistakes, staying in pain, never getting better and sometimes getting worse.

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 shoulder pain and stay pain free for the long haul?

Shoulder 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 shoulder hurts bad enough, movements like bench press, overhead press and olympic lifts become nearly impossible.  

Unfortunately, some doctors and physical therapists don't always understand this.  They may tell you to just stop training in the gym, but you wouldn't have gone to the doctor in the first place if they were going to tell you that.  You want someone to guide you back to what you love, 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 experts.

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.

It gets worse...

Coaches and trainers are often pressured to become the rehab experts for their injured athletes.  

Coaches and trainers really don't get much if any education on common shoulder injuries.  Injury and pain continues to be a nebulous thing that only medical providers have access to knowledge of.  

Meanwhile, athletes are left to suffer with shoulder pain and no one to help them...

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

Bench Press?

Overhead Press and Olympic Lifts?

Pull-ups, dips, muscle-ups and other upper body exercises?

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

  • Shoulder Injuries are Rampant
    Remember, shoulder pain is one of the most common issues I treat. 
  • Coaches and Trainers Aren't Thoroughly Equipped to Deal with Shoulder Injuries
    As a coach or trainer it isn't your job to rehabilitate your athletes' shoulders.  Remember that coaches and trainers don't get this information with their education.

  • 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 leads people down the wrong path.

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

So what are we to do?

In reality, we need science driven, evidence based advice and guidance from experts who do this for a living.  You also need guidance from experts who actually understand what you're trying to get back to.  You need someone 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...
