3.1. Cardiovascular Training & Physical Conditioning (3-days)
It is advisable to increase cardio-vascular and cardio- respiratory capacities. Whether for the beginner, to maintain general conditioning, preparatory training for sports, or to improve the performance of a high caliber athlete, only a program adapted to the individual needs can respond to the specific objective.
This course will study the elements that will permit progress in endurance, as well as cardio vascular and cardio-respiratory abilities according to the individual’s needs.
3.2. Global Postural Stretching - GPS (3-days)
Whatever your methods of pre-season conditioning, training, or re-education, it is necessary to place the body part being solicited, into a global posture. To rediscover the efficiency and fluidity of a movement, the GPS allows a perfect linking between the joint, the muscle and their fasciae. These specific postures must be meticulously performed and are adapted to each part of the body. The positions can be used in training and conditioning as well as in pre-season training. They are equally of indubitable efficiency for all re- education programs.
For example, after an accident or an illness, all therapeutic treatment must be completed by a rehabilitation of all activities of daily life, in the personal life; the sporting life; and the professional life.
There are thus four big stages to follow:
- The first is curative; by the surgeon, doctor, osteopath; or chiropractor according to their methodology.
- The second allows the patient to validate the therapeutic action above by analytic auto- normalization exercises such as myofascial stretching, ELDOA, circulatory or respiratory exercises, proprioception exercises, awareness training, etc
- The third stage brings in global postural exercises to give to the patient a general integration back into daily life, and sporting and professional activities. It is these global postural stretches of the trunk; and upper and lower limbs that are included in the program of the advanced personal trainer.
- The fourth stage is the return to normal activities of the individual in question.
3.3. Strapping for sports pathologies (3-days)
There are many different courses on taping techniques these days but non of them is teaching the strapping of the affected joint or soft tissue in view of the FASCIA and its connections.
Movement is life. It is very important for the affected tissue to be able to micro move without being loaded while still allowing the joint complex to move with respect to its tensegrity mechanics.
This course will detail the most commonly occurring sport and overuse (sprains, subluxations, tendinitis, certain fractures etc.) injuries and teach you a specific methodology of strapping techniques to address them for their speedy and efficient recovery.
Very frequently, to assist in the ability of movement or strength performance, the trainer must apply a therapeutic tape job for a ligament, tendon, muscle or a specific articulation.
3.4. Segmental Strengthening & Normalization of the Transversus Abdominis (TVA) (3-days)
3.5. Program Design and Clinical Application (3-days)
This seminar allows the application of all the Level 1,2 and 3 information for specific clients and different patient and athlete scenarios. It will also allow time to answer any questions arising.
