1.1. Analytical & Segmental Strengthening of the Abdominal Muscles & Thoracic Diaphragm (3-days)

Through relational/fascial anatomy, and specific exercise techniques, this course will not only give you a huge upgrade in the way you train the abs, it will also provide you with a deep understanding of how proper conditioning of the abdominal muscles can help correct abdominal wall separations, hernias and improve digestive dysfunctions such as constipation, IBS etc. all through specific muscular strengthening.

What makes this course even more unique is the exercise techniques to reinforce various parts of the thoracic diaphragm relative to different common ortheopedic conditions.

Course syllabus:
- technical analysis of the movements which are the basis of muscle strengthening
- learning to perfect the movement (progression factors)
- how to avoid injury with the appropriate preparation
- Spine and trunk warm-ups
- quality effort in terms of: strength, volume, power, speed, resistance,  endurance and fitness maintenance
- planning training sessions with respect to time availability
- strengthening methods for all the abdominal muscles
- muscular re-education programs
- sports preparation programs

 

1.2. Analytical and Segmental Strengthening of the Muscles of the Lower Limb (3-days)

There are hundreds of specific exercises, which can solicit the proximal, distal, medial, lateral, middle, superficial or deep portions of each muscle (i.e. proximal psoas or distal tibialis anterior) in the lower extremities. The thorough details that are covered in this class will allow for an understanding of the numerous exercises that target specific areas of the lower limb.

Course syllabus:
- technical analysis of the movements which are the basis of muscle  strengthening
- learning to perfect the movement (progression factors)
- how to avoid injury with the appropriate preparation
- lower extremity warm-ups
- quality effort in terms of: strength, volume, power, speed, resistance,    endurance and fitness maintenance
- planning training sessions with respect to time availability
- strengthening methods for all the lower extremity muscles
- muscular re-education programs
- sports preparation programs

1.3. Analytical & Segmental Strengthening of the Upper Limb, Shoulder Girdle & Trunk (3-days)

There are hundreds of specific exercises, which can solicit the proximal, distal, medial, lateral, middle, superficial or deep portions of each muscle (i.e. deltoids, quadratus lumborum) in the upper extremities and trunk. The thorough details that are covered in this class will allow for an understanding of the numerous exercises that target specific areas of the upper limb and the trunk. Students will learn and gain a deep understanding of the function of these muscles relevant to optimal joint mechanics with numerous tools to implement in rehabilitation, corrective exercise and athletic performance.

Course syllabus:

- relational anatomy and tensegrity biomechanics of the shoulder girdle & spine
- technical analysis of the movements which are the basis of muscle      strengthening
- learning to perfect the movement (progression factors)
- how to avoid injury with the appropriate preparation
- lower extremity warm-ups
- quality effort in terms of strength, volume, power, speed, resistance, endurance   & fitness maintenance
- planning training sessions
- strengthening methods for the upper extremities and trunk muscles
- muscular re-education programs
- sports preparation programs

1.4. Global Movement: The Squat & Gravity Line (3-days)

This course will teach you tools to both assess and improve postural imbalances while gaining a deeper understanding of what drives posture and how it affects the health & function of the body from a functional biomechanics perspective. An accurately performed squat is an essential part of a postural correction as well as many back, hip and knee rehab programs. When done incorrectly though, it often creates pain and dysfunction. Learn a new way of squatting applying tensegrity biomechanics.

Course syllabus:

    • a number of postural assessment techniques with practical tools       to address postural imbalances. 
    • the importance of gravity line in relation to joint mechanics  during the squat
    • applied tensegrity with active myofascial control for a more balanced load share between the different anatomy involved in the movement
    • modification of techniques in the application with common injuries such as disc hernias, patella femoral tracking problems, cruciate ligament injuries, range of motion restrictions and more.

    1.5. Circulatory & Respiratory Techniques (3-days)

    The first part of the course focuses on the specific stimulation of the deep veins with targeted exercises to stimulate venous blood flow in an anatomical and physiological sense for each vein of the lower limb. The exercises taught during the second part of this course focuses on the qualitative improvement of respiration and it's aiming at a very precise recruitment of each pulmonary segment.

    Course syllabus:

    • The heart pumps blood through the arteries to every part of the body and supplies the cells with oxygen. The venous system, in contrast, transports the deoxygenated blood from the body back to the heart. 
    • The prevalence of venous insufficiency increases with age with women being affected at an earlier age than men. It is within the legs that the stresses are the greatest and the specific characteristics of the venous system are the most important, since the venous system must move blood against the force of gravity in the standing position.  Problems of venous return include varicose veins, heavy legs, oedema which are common problems a large percentage of people deal with on a regular basis. 
    • These problems can be naturally address with precise exercises targeted at the stimulation of deep veins for improved venous return. 
    • Through breathing, the respiratory system facilitates the exchange of gases between the air and the blood and between the blood and the body's cells.
    • There are many different exercises one can use to improve the quantity of breathe inhaled. In this course we will focus on targeted exercises to improve the quality of breathing by a deeper stimulation of each pulmonary segment.
