Prioritizing Stability Before Strength, Injury Management, And Finding Clarity In Your Goals With Dr. Jordan Shallow — Muscle Maven Radio Episode #12

Dr. Jordan Shallow is a chiropractor, strength coach, and a competitive powerlifter who champions getting movement right, from the outset. Jordan’s patients range from world-class athletes to weekend warriors. Understanding the needs and demands of each individual is the cornerstone on which his clinical practice is built. When he’s not working on his Pre-Script program, traveling the world teaching strength and movement seminars with Ben Pakulski, or hosting his own podcast RX’d Radio, he’s competing in powerlifting.

Ashleigh sits down with fellow Canadian beefcake Dr. Jordan Shallow, a chiropractor, strength coach, founder of Pre-Script, and competitive power lifter to talk about his new programs; traveling the world teaching muscle building and training with Ben Pakulski; his recent injuries and how it effects his training; and why it’s important to surround yourself with the right people.

Minute Breakdown:

2 – 16 What Jordan is up to, whether he gets more nervous presenting or competing, and what kind of impact he wants to have on the industry  

16 –32  What exactly is his Pre-Script program? Progressions of mobility, stability and strength and understanding load management as a means of injury prevention
