Fascia:  The Key to Better Movement

What makes our bodies move? Muscles power us, but fascia, the body’s elastic tissue, is responsible for movement integration of the whole body. The fascia connects muscles, tendons and all other structures responsible for movement to create a fully connected system. The more we learn about the fascial network, the better we can help our clients move.

In this video training, ACE health and fitness expert Pete McCall, MS, CSCS, will explain the difference between the types of muscle and demonstrate specific exercise strategies for improving the function and resiliency of the fascia and elastic connective tissues. This course provides an anatomical and mechanical look into this system and is ideal for the more advanced professional who wants to learn the latest methods in functional movement. 

You will learn:

  • The difference between the contractile component and the elastic component of muscle tissue
  • How muscles function to store and release mechanical energy
  • To identify effective training strategies that improve the elasticity and resiliency of fascia
  • How to design exercise programs that improve both muscle force output and elastic response
