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.

Biomechanics of Assisted Stretching
|Provider:||ACE - American Council On Exercise|
|CEC Credits:||ACE 0.4 CECs , ACSM - American College Of Sports Medicine 4.0 CECs, NBHWC 4.0 CECs|
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
Simple and informative, definitely very surface level but good for an overview. There were a few questions specifically regarding the BAS back program on the quiz that were not mentioned in the literature which is frustrating. Would have liked more info in stretch programs for LBP too.
