Flexibility is an important component of a health and fitness program and can aid in muscle recovery and pain management, yet it is often overlooked by clients. In this course, you will learn to facilitate a stretching program for your clients by assisting them properly. Explore the three principles of force application that help you determine where to place your hands, what direction to push, and how much force to use when helping clients stretch. Stretch your clients safely and effectively using techniques for specific areas of the body.
You will learn:
How the law of action-reaction relates to assisted stretching and how to apply it
To identify form errors that occur when principles of force application have been violated
How stretching can help alleviate chronic lower back pain and peripheral neuropathies
There were still some questions on the final exam that were NEVER introduced in this course, it is a bit annoying because I would have done even better on my exam. I really don't know why they do that
Good course, but this BAC Backs that's mentioned in the course, that WASN'T covered in the course as well as a few other things wasn't cool. Would've gotten a higher star rating if all that was covered.
This course was excellent, but should have had videos displaying directional pressing by trainer, along with still images. MORE IMPORTANTLY, the last section of test questions asked about the BAS Backs course, muscle sarcomeres and additional low back information. It was NOWHERE IN THE COURSE!!! That is a cheap shot. BAD FORM, ACE!
Lot of good information and demonstration
Good information, but not well-presented. Video is basically a repeat of one of the PDFs, with a voiceover of still photos versus live demonstrations, which would have been much better. Many redundancies in written material. Several questions on the quiz aren't covered in the materials, but not too hard to reason out the answers. First time I've been disappointed in an ACE online course. Again, I'm happy to have more knowledge on the topic, but the course definitely not worth the price--way too much for what you get.
