Brief outline of the day

  1. Introduction: Brief recap on the fundamentals of movement, the kinetic chain, global movement patterns vs local joint range, loading and congruity. The importance of myofascial lines. You will also be reminded of the need to establish fundamental movement patterns prior to moving on to sports performance.
  2. Screening Sporting Techniques: Boxing, Tennis and Rugby We will observe multiple videos showing sports people in action in order to identify optimal and sub-optimal movement patterns.
  3. Sport Specific Programming: You will use your observation or practice the sporting movements to help you plan a structured, sequential exercise programme to improve position specific movement patterns and subsequent performance.  
  4. Technique Specific Joint Mobilisation: Practice hands on techniques to mobilise joints in three planes of motion to ensure congruity and correct loading for the sporting techniques.
  5. Myofascial Loading Optimisation: Understand how to load myofascia with whole body movements to underpin strong sporting movements
  6. Case studies: Putting it all in to practice, by presenting sport specific programmes back to the group.

How will it change my business and earning potential?

Once you have learned how to optimise the arm chain, you will be able to help prospects identify dysfunctional movement patterns which are causing issues in their every day life and to re-establish healthy, strong movement patterns. This will significantly increase the number of client groups you can address and significantly enhance the quality of service you offer to your existing clients. Needless to say, this will enhance your earning potential as you differentiate yourself from the competition.
