Today we feature Dr. Nicholas Rolnick DPT, MS, CSCS of The Human Performance Mechanic.


The Mission of THPM is to help everyone experience the Joy of Pain-Free Movement through world-class Physical Therapy & Personal Training.

Nicholas says “The human body is a machine. I’m fascinated by its unlimited potential, and its amazing ability to recover from injury.   Machines are the most efficient and effective when they are in balance. When a machine is out of balance, it takes a skilled mechanic to diagnose the imbalance and provide the remedy. As a physical therapist, I see myself as the human performance mechanic.  My specialties: McKenzie Therapy (Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy) and Blood Flow Restriction Training.”

In addition, Dr. Rolnick teaches continuing education courses for physical therapists on the benefits and applications of blood flow restriction training.  Nicholas has a strong background in strength and conditioning and he gives tons of tips on his social media.  Check out the video below to improve your chest day training.
