Build a Strong and Supple Spine

Description

The human spine is a dynamic structure built to move with ease and power… until it doesn’t. In terms of human movement, the spine plays a central role in everything we do from sitting to standing, walking, running or jumping. In this foundational biomechanics workshop, we will examine the structure of the spine, and learn about key roles the different sections of the spine play in movement and core control. We will look at how to design a spine-focused exercise prescription that promotes optimal function. Common movement impairments of the spine will be discussed briefly along with exercise solutions.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review and expand your understanding of structural anatomy of the spine
  • Build a basic understanding of the spine’s functional anatomy
  • Learn to deconstruct the spine’s four major motions to understand the continuum of typical movement impairments
  • Learn key exercises to optimize functional movement in all regions of the spine

3-Part Biomechanics Series: Build a Strong and Supple Spine, Power and Balance for Hip and Knee, Simplifying the Shoulder Complex

In this 3-part series we dive into 3 major areas of the body that significantly impact the functioning of the entire body.  You learn how to observe movement mechanics in the spine, hip and knee, and shoulder complex so you can offer meaningful instruction on how to move better, deeper and stronger. We offer these workshops back to back (usually over 1.5 days) to help you immerse yourself quickly and learn simple strategy to get your clients moving with optimal function.
