To effectively design exercise programs for the lower body (squat, bend-and-lift and single-leg actions), personal trainers have to understand the integrated relationship between stability and mobility among the hip, knee, ankle and foot joints. This recorded webinar explains how muscle imbalances and mechanics can lead to overload, overuse and injury. And how understanding stability-mobility, a detail often overlooked by fitness professionals, is essential to effective program design.
You will learn:
- Relevant biomechanical principles associated with movement of the hips, knees and feet
- Integrated roles of each joint in movement, and importance of stability and mobility in the hips, knees, ankles and feet
- Effects of muscle imbalance on key physiological, neurological and mechanic properties
- To identify movement compensations and identify restorative exercises for mobility and stability.
