Functional Anatomy for Exercise Program Design

Upon completion of the Functional Anatomy Training individuals will be able to: Identify issues related to Pronation Distortion, Upper and Lower Crossed Syndrome which may be addressed when designing an exercise program to help the client reach their goals. They will also learn how to perform myo-fascial release using a lacrosse ball and a foam roller to release knots on the tight/and or weak muscles involved such as Latissimus dorsi, pectoralis major, rhomboids, mid and upper trapezius, hip flexors , the glutteals, tensor fascia Latae and illio-tibial band, gastrocs, soleus, anterior and posterior Tibialis and the hamstrings and quadriceps. We will review corrective exercises which may improve the quality of movement and assist the client to meet his/her exercise goals. The trainer will also be able to do a static postural assessment and an overhead squat to assist with identifying issues of concern which the training program should address. Finally, understand how to give the client some of what they want and some of what they need to achieve their fitness program and see results in their exercise program.
