EBP: What is Evidence Based Practice? Who do I listen to?
Evidence based practice(EBP) is often misunderstood because studies are often not understood, misrepresented and skewed for the sake of selling some kind of product by using over-hyped claims.
EBP is a combination of 3 things: 1) The Best available research(Tightly Controlled RCTs over Rat Studies or In Vitro studies) 2) Practitioner Experience – My experience as a practitioner contributes to helping select what is appropriate for a client 3) Client needs and preferences – A client may be likely to adhere to an intervention that isn’t what might be touted as “optimal”, but that is why their preferences are so important–adherence!
RPE: Rate of perceived exertion
There are different ways to gauge how hard you work during your workouts. RPE is one way you will see me used frequently in my program design in combination with percentage based programming. Check out the RPE Resource in the Resources section of the website and watch the attached video for more!
