This companion DVD illustrates the original techniques documented in Dr. McGill’s textbooks. Using real clinic settings and patients, McGill shows some assessment skills to determine specific intolerances and some therapeutic options for different people/approaches. This is followed with the subtle exercise techniques that enable the painful back to engage in the appropriate corrective exercise and then progress to stabilization/mobilization, and endurance training. As with all of Dr. McGill’s material, it is evidence based and practiced by some of the top clinicians dealing with very failed backs, through to some of the best athletes around the world.

New for the second edition is more explanation and demonstration of provocative testing technique together with mechanisms of pain and pain reduction.

DVD is recorded in world-wide format.

The New Science of Golf [DVD] Lee Brandon and Stuart McGill

World long drive champion Lee Brandon teamed up with Professor Stuart McGill to create this ground breaking DVD. Traditionally, scientific investigation has been on the golf swing motion. For the first time McGill brings some top golfers into the lab to measure their muscle activation patterns together with their body linkage forces. It turns out that how the golfer sequences muscle activation patterns determines how far the ball flies, as well as influencing the stress on the back, hips and knees. The great golfers are excellent muscle “pulsers”. Brandon uses this evidence in her lively coaching of the swing. Then McGill and Brandon take the viewer through a series of 50 new exercises to enhance the variables that have been shown to lengthen the distance of the golf ball while enhancing injury resilience.

Run time 1 hour and 20 minutes.
Also included on the DVD are printable files of training and exercise logs

“True innovation for golf”
“A major step in hitting a longer drive”

The Ultimate Back (DVD): Enhancing Performance

The objective when designing exercise is to train and achieve optimal performance with minimal risk of injury. Synthesizing McGill’s approaches for injury avoidance with those proven to enhance performance resulted in this rich and idea-inspiring resource. This approach has been used by some top athletes in many sports together with those who are returning from back injury to surpass their previous bests.

Some higher level assessments guide exercise decisions. This is followed with some corrective exercise, stability/mobility training, endurance training. Producing ultimate strength, power and speed requires skill. Both training skills and technique skills are developed resulting in higher performance. These techniques will assist in achieving “master” level skills.

As with McGill’s other books and DVD, the approaches here are evidence-based. All of the video examples are real life, with real athletes. This is raw authentic footage where nothing is staged. This demonstrates how McGill assesses, cues and coaches performance techniques. This is a companion DVD for the “Ultimate Back Fitness and Performance” book and was produced in 2010.

DVD is recorded in world-wide format.
