“Big Bang” Exercises
Take your knowledge of functional exercise into the stratosphere with “big bang” exercises. Using multiple planes of movement and addressing several biomotor abilities at once, a big bang exercise condenses the benefits of many different exercises into one, saving time and making efficient use of space and equipment. Learn techniques to ascend (make harder) and descend (make easier) a big bang exercise to customize the experience for each individual client’s needs.
Sunday, February 11th :: 8:30 am – 10:00 am
Functional Anatomy That Actually Improves Function
A clear understanding of functional anatomy can make a world of difference in your ability to prescribe and develop exercise programs. This lecture goes far beyond the basics of “origin and insertion anatomy,” showing you how the body is a highly unified, integrated cybernetic system – a system of systems that are all co-dependent. Once you have this foundational knowledge, critical analysis of exercise trends and technologies is made easier, allowing you to think and reason rather than just follow the herd, resulting in superior program design skill and greatly improved results for your clients.
Sunday, February 11th :: 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
Swiss Ball Techniques for Correcting Posture and Stability Deficits
Swiss balls are one of the best tools available to exercise and fitness professionals for assessments and functional training. This workshop expands on the techniques pioneered by Paul Chek, who brought Swiss ball training to professional teams like the Chicago Bulls and the Canberra Raiders, and shows you how to apply the science of biomechanics and kinesiology to advanced exercise techniques. The intricacies of postural and stability assessment and corrective exercises are presented along with techniques for improving the function of the all-important core.
The renowned IDEA World Convention comes to San Diego this year, June 27th – July 1st! Don’t miss your chance to see Paul Chek in action! Workshop details are below:
Saturday, June 30th :: 1:40 pm – 3:30 pm
Roll, Wiggle, Crawl, and Climb to Walk, Run, and Jump Pain-Free
The essential stages of infant development prepare human beings to effectively stand, walk, run, jump and play as nature intended – pain-free. Many adults who have difficulty performing one or more of the seven essential Primal Pattern movements missed important developmental movement sequences as an infant. The good news is that these missing steps can be added later in life. In this session, you’ll learn how to create assessments and exercises using infant development movements, and learn which clients will respond best to these types of exercises. You can start using these techniques immediately in your practice!
