I am thrilled to introduce the Total Performance with Siobhan Milner podcast. This podcast is dedicated to all things athletic performance and injury prevention. I’m a strength and conditioning coach, currently working with the Dutch Olympic Team, with a background in exercise and rehabilitation science. I’m a huge believer in the benefits of movement for everyone from all walks of life, but I particularly like to get nerdy about athletic performance and injury prevention, so that’s primarily what this podcast will be focusing on. Over the last decade or so of working with athletes and performance artists, it’s become really clear to me that performing at a high level requires so much more than great training.
I don’t give out advice unless asked. But in the last few years, I’ve felt a rising urgency to at least start sharing the facts. I see so many people losing their ability to move well as they age, and perhaps not even realising the hugely powerful effects that exercise has to help manage (and in some cases, even reverse) age-related decline in almost all of the bodily systems. So I won’t tell you what to do anymore (unless you hire me!). But I will share why exercise is so vital to living a longer, better life.
Something that I used to cue a lot years ago when teaching a squat was “hips back.” While some athletes can benefit from this cue (especially those with freaky ankle ROM – here’s looking at you, shorttrackers), an overemphasis on sending the hips back can turn the squatting movement into a semi-hinge pattern.
