Redcord Active Introduction

A suspension-based exercise program can be one of the most effective ways to help your clients, athletes or patients achieve more. These exercises allow the user to place a constant demand on the body's deep stabilizing system, while at the same time addressing myofascial restrictions with both open-kinetic and closed-kinetic chain exercises. Upon completion of this course, the attendee will have a thorough understanding of how to apply functional anatomy and biomechanical principles to suspension-based exercise programs, as well as how to select exercises and manipulate acute variables to achieve specific neuromuscular adaptations. This course provides the attendee with a foundation of key scientific principles discussed in more depth in subsequent Redcord courses. Topics Covered: Functional anatomy and myofascial lines; Grading suspension exercises; Redcord exercises performed in standing, kneeling, side lying, prone, and supine positions; Biomechanical principles for regressing/progressing exercises; Basic theory on neuromuscular control, core strength, joint stability and functional exercise.
