Everything We Know About Training is Wrong

We are all taught that muscles contract and relax. They get tight, relax, and produce force. This is true, but it’s not the whole story. We were all taught to strengthen the weak and stretch the tight, but we forgot to ask simple questions, like WHY is it weak, and WHY is it tight?

Let’s use tight hip flexors as an example. Everyone has them, and everyone spends hours trying to stretch them out or find a better way of stretching them. All this stretching provides short term relief, but doesn’t solve the problem. Is the answer more of the same, or changing how we think about the body?

The answer is that the hip flexor isn’t tight on its own. It’s tight for a reason. It’s up to you to find out what that reason is.

My name’s Dean Somerset.

I’ve been a personal trainer for 15 years, and over 80% of my personal clientele come directly from medical referrals (physiotherapists, chiropractors, general practitioners, surgeons) in order to help their patients get continuing results when they leave their clinics. I initially started off looking to become great at helping people lose weight, gain muscle and become absolute monsters, but quickly found that almost everyone coming into me had a shoulder, back, knee or hip problem that was holding them back. 

It was a necessary step for me to learn how to work successfully with a wide array of injuries, conditions and developmental issues in order to take on everyone possible who could benefit from my help.

The funny thing is, they need the same kind of movement coaching and progression that elite athletes need.

This is where Post Rehab Essentials comes in.

This is a workshop that goes through the basics that every trainer should know about injury post-rehab before working with their clients. It covers the most common conditions of the shoulder, hip, knee and spine, and gives directions on what to do and more importantly, what not to do with the specific injuries. Each section goes through pertinent anatomical information, what adaptations occur with each injury, how to assess and determine who can and cannot begin training, and how to train it to get the best results safely and effectively.

The concepts contained in Post Rehab Essentials have helped me get the following results for clients:

Helped a client with massive pelvic and abdominal reconstructive surgeries deadlift almost twice her bodyweight within 1 year of surgery, pain free

Helped a client recover from hip replacement surgery to ski and golf in the same day

Re-built my own low back issues to deadlift pain free and even do the splits

Help my wife get back into competitive triathlon following a series of SI joint injuries

Help an Olympic gold medalist recover from a hip injury to prepare for the Sochi Olympics

Get hundreds of clients out of pain and training with purpose once again

Dean Somerset Is a Movement Genius

“What does that mean? He is the opposite of why most people become frustrated with fitness. He will make you better and remove your pain–all while helping you see more results. It’s what the best coaches know how to do, and Dean is part of an elite group.” – Adam Bornstein, New York Times best selling author

Dean Somerset has quickly emerged as an outstanding resource in the fitness industry.

"I really enjoy reading his stuff, and I’m sure you will, too.”

Rarely in this industry do we find individuals who seamlessly mesh passion with knowledge.

"Dean is one of those rare cases. There are very few trainers who are as well-rounded and research-based as Dean. Anyone who can learn from him can consider themselves lucky."

I will also show you the only three core training exercises anyone will ever need to build a powerful and functional spine

You’ll also get a massive hands-on sessions in each section with specific exercises and the technical breakdown on what they work, how to properly execute them and how to cue the client to get them into the right movement patterns. I’ve also included easy regressions and progressions for basic movements that everyone does incorrectly.

The practical breakout sessions will show you how to go through passive assessments, active assessments, how to build put all the pieces together to build a program from those assessments, and how to integrate corrective strategies throughout your program for maximal training effect.

You also get Continuing Education credits from the NSCA. This product has been approved for 1.2 CEU’s with the NSCA, which will help you to keep your certification while getting your learn on.

Upper Quadrant:

  • Common shoulder injuries
  • How most common training programs lead to more injuries than they fix
  • How to get optimal training responses to overcome the injuries

In addition, I will also show how most common neck, shoulder and low back issues are directly related to breathing, and what to do about it

Lower Quadrant:

  • Biomechanics, anatomical structures of importance

  • How to get the most bang for your buck from re-training your foot
  • How to get optimal training responses to overcome the injuries

Here are some of the highlights I go through:

  • How most “rehab” programs aren’t tailored to specific needs of the individual and do nothing but eat up time.
  • Joint mechanics that show why some exercises will hurt you while others will help you.
  • Why repetitive strain injuries are so common, and how to fix them forever
  • Why pain doesn’t tell you the problem, and how to uncover the real issue
  • Why static stretching is completely useless and should be stopped at all costs, especially when working through an injury
  • How to dramatically increase the value of your training sessions and keep your clients longer
  • How to perform complex lifts, assessments, and corrective exercises in a safe and effective manner.
  • How to get people strong. Period.


In total, you’re going to get 12 hours of videos, and most importantly, answers to many of the questions you may have about how to train clients with injuries.Every time you have someone who sits in front of you and says they have an old injury, a new injury, or an unexplained ache or pain, you should still be able to work with them in a safe and effective manner. Each time you turn a potential client away or have a client who can’t train because of an injury from a poorly designed program, you lose money.

If a client continues to train with you to help improve an existing injury, it’s again paid for itself. Top it off with the fact that if you reduce a clients level of pain or dysfunction, they feel better immediately, and can then get stronger and lose weight faster than on any other program because you took the time to work on what needed working on.

No Pain = Better Results = You look better = More Business

Because I believe in this product so much, and I just know you’re going to walk away with a lot of new information that you will be able to use right away, I’m also going to include a 60 day money-back guarantee. If for whatever reason you don’t feel you learned anything from Post-Rehab Essentials, let me know and I’ll personally issue you a full refund. That won’t be an issue though, because I’m going to go out on a limb and say that I GUARANTEE you will learn at least one new bit of information that will change the way you train your clients and probably help you get more clients to purchase training than ever before.

I make a point in the video of saying I want everyone to take at least 100 points of information with them to add to their trainer toolbox, and I’m sure you’ll get this same benefit.

You have a choice to make

Like in the Matrix, you can take the red pill and continue to train the way you have, hoping that doing hundreds of elastic band exercises will make your rotator cuff stronger, stretching your hip flexors so they will eventually loosen up, and doing hundreds of crunches to improve your abs and spinal core stability…….

……or, you can take the blue pill, watch this workshop, and see how far down the rabbit hole goes.
