Are you a fitness professional? Do you work with people with shoulders? What about hips? Well then, this Workshop is right up your alley!!
Here’s a sample of some concepts we dig into.
How to use the static and integrative assessments to guide your training program.
How breathing mechanics drives mobility of the upper body and stability of the lower body, and how to use it to see fast improvements in both.
neck positioning, sternoclavicular joint, and elbow considerations with shoulder movements
Deeper assessment considerations, including medical elements that may require a referral for non-fitness modalities
Why “impingement” and “scapular winging” are garbage terms, how to assess for their true function and purpose, the difference between internal and external impingement, and what it means to your training program
How simplifying your upper extremity assessment to the “Big 3” – Release, Position, Mobilize – can and will cover your bases for most shoulder ailments.
Heavy pressing, explosive throwing, and programming considerations for different goal sets and populations
