About the Event
Broaden your skillset and take your fitness profession to the next level...
This course is an addendum to a program of assisted stretching called Integrative Stretching (IS). The goal of IS is to provide massage therapists, fitness professionals, movement therapists, and bodyworkers with an extra set of techniques and skills geared towards improving functional movements of their clients through assisted stretching and soft-tissue manipulation techniques. The course Integrative Stretching for Strength and Conditioning dives deeper into how to apply the principles and methods of IS into addressing areas and limitations related to movements found in most strength and conditioning programs. The movements of particular focus in this workshop include fundamental training movements such as the Squat, Deadlift, Lunge, Vertical Pull, Vertical Press, Horizontal Pull, Horizontal Press, and motions of the Trunk. Participants may expect to gain further familiarity with the skeletal, neural, muscular, and fascial anatomy and kinesiology related to athletic training movements. This information will be used to guide participants through learning new assisted stretching techniques designed to promote functional range of motion in their visitors.
Earn 12 CEs from the NCBTMB and/or 1.9 CEUs from the NASM.
Learn how to...
Demonstrate proficiency in applying integrative stretching in different settings.
Be better able to make safe and effective contact with clients through hands-on stretching towards improving performance of basic functional movements.
Be able to safely and effectively coach participants through the use of self-myofascial release tools (e.g. foam rollers, dowels) in order to address a particular movement quality.
Be able to set “baselines” as a means of measuring functional ROM progress.
Demonstrate understanding of different physical qualities that permit or inhibit a movement.
Be able to create and utilize an integrative stretching sequence that covers most movements of a chosen training movement in a stand-alone session.
Be able to recognize common musculoskeletal/myofascial issues that arise in the ability to perform basic exercises.
Understand theories explaining how proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation and myofascial manipulation work in relation to promoting integrative movement.
