Session 48 – Exercise Specificity & Variability – Under Scrutiny with Ben Cormack

For about 2 years the following has been on the Physio Matters To-Do-List: ‘Talk to Ben Cormack about everything he talks about’

Ben is a Sports Therapist who, like TPMP guests Matt Phillips and Nick Grantham before him, proves that the specific certificates do not make the clinician! Talking of ‘specific’, Jack and Ben take a deep dive into why human movement is important, how bothered we should be about assessing ‘quality’, what the upper and lower limits of variability are and how specific our exercise prescription parameters should be.

We can’t think of anything more important to talk about right now than the advocacy of movement as medicine. Have a listen and see if we’ve managed to deliver you more clinical gold!? Huge thanks to UK based tech company for helping to bring this episode to life! Get your 2 month free trial at
