In Level One, we introduce an integrative model of exercise physiology and movement biomechanics. Standing on the shoulders of reductionist anatomy and physiology, we take a fresh look at the body’s movement structures to discover how they work as a whole to create motion. Learn how to assess and analyze movement as we make use of SparkMotion for iPad. This powerful tool will assist your movement analysis with real-time and asynchronous modes, angle and force overlays, and timeline progressions. We spend most of our time on the IoM Method for program design: a method that adopts whole-body integration as its guiding principle while including traditional training methods. Using the 4-Quadrant Model, you will learn how to design workouts that balance different types of movement - this balance is critical for injury prevention, functional improvement outside the gym, and sustaining the body through intensive training. Next, the 6-Steps of Exercise Design, will show you how to manipulate exercises to change tissue stresses - how does a split stance affect the body differently during a dead lift? What changes when the load is pushed to the anterior at chest height instead of anterior-lateral at head height? Over several workout sessions, we connect theory with action to enhance your training immediately.
