Get Your Clients Moving After Pregnancy
Pregnancy is beautiful, exciting, life-changing—and can be difficult to recover from. According to the US Census Bureau, a new baby is born every 8 seconds in the United States alone. That means that every day, millions of new mothers are beginning not only their journey through motherhood, but a journey to readjusting their body after pregnancy—a journey that, according to podiatrist Dr. Emily Splichal, starts with the feet.
In this video training, Dr. Splichal—a human movement specialist and global leader in barefoot science and rehabilitation—will explain how powerful the feet are when it comes to core strength, and how this connection may be the secret to restoring core strength following a pregnancy. You will learn about the anatomy of the core and how the body stabilizes during standing, walking and running, and gain a greater appreciation for this foundational area of postnatal health for your clients.
You will learn:
- The connection between the feet and the core via the deep front fascial line.
- The connection between breathing and pelvic floor as it relates to the postnatal client.
- How to develop sensible periodization principles based on the client’s age and fitness level.
- How to design safe and effective postnatal foot-to-core programming as the foundation to all other exercises.
I thought the instruction was very good, in regard to teaching style and the information presented. I found the information very useful, but I'm not 100% sure I would implement this type of training. In regard to deep core muscle activation and the PF - yes, but I would not ask a client to take off their shoes and work out barefoot. I do recommend they wear the flattest shoes they can stand (if comfortable). I will use the rest of the information, will not implement the barefoot aspect into my training.
