Postural Problems of Prolonged Sitting and Corrective Exercises
|Provider:||Pilates Academy International|
|CEC Credits:||ACE 0.2 CECs|
Some say that “sitting is the new smoking,” and the numbers indicate that sitting is indeed a troubling epidemic among Americans. According to JAMA, 1 in 4 U.S. adults sit for more than 8 hours a day. This “sitting disease” causes some muscles to become overly elongated and others to become chronically shortened, which increases stress in the neck, shoulders, arms, legs, spine, spinal discs and back muscles.
Exercise professionals can help their desk-bound clients by first understanding what sitting does to the body and why these clients need to be trained in a different manner than other clients. In this course by Katherine and Kimberly Corp—ACE Certified Professionals, owners of Pilates on Fifth, Pilates Center of New York, Inc. and founders and directors of The Pilates Academy International—you will understand the common problems associated with prolonged sitting and learn corrective exercises that can be immediately implemented into training sessions. By correcting your clients’ postural problems, you will empower them to feel better and get the most out of their training.
You will learn:
- Why desk-bound clients need to be trained differently than other clients
- How to identify and explain postural and biomechanical problems associated with sitting
- How to deliver corrective exercises to address each client’s unique problems
