Anatomy Trains in Training
Learn how to tap into the myofasciae and boost your results.
Whether you are an athletic coach, personal trainer, fitness instructor, physiotherapist or medical doctor, you will benefit from understanding a 4-D neuro-myofascial approach to body movement that includes assessment and developing function and performance.
Anatomy Trains in Training is based on Tom Myer’s Anatomy Trains – we are used to thinking of the Lines as lines of communication in the body … Now we can see them as lines of loading and force.
By understanding how the joints direct forces into our myofascial net – controlled by our neural, motor control and reflexive systems – you will gain new and exciting tools to build and progress individualised exercises that are appropriate to any client’s body.
- Learn how to release and open neuromyofascial networks to create balance.
- Learn how to progress exercise programming in safely and, importantly, effectively
- Create dynamic support and control, power and strength for balanced movement.Taking the paradigm shift from static stability to dynamic control is necessary to understand and move the body appropriately. We are moderately good at static stability – but we also need the understanding of 4-D movement and its principles.
Out with the old – Traditionally, our exercises for rehabilitation, fitness and musculoskeletal conditioning have concentrated on muscles and on a maximum load strategies – lifting – which we need occasionally.
In with the new – Now is the time for new principles that appreciate the myofascial connective tissues for a modern-day understanding of movement and exercise. Anatomy Trains in Training uses recoil exercises and their progression to load our 3-dimensional neuro-myofascial web in a 4-D fashion.
Movement and motion sequencing in relation to the point of contact is at the heart of balanced movement. Being able to apply those principles is crucial for individually unique exercises when preventing injuries and maximizing performance.
Our teachers have been using recoil exercises in their overall exercise programming and during endurance, strength and power training and have been amazed by the results.
Learn how to prevent injuries and maximize performance with balanced movement that includes our most important way of moving – recoiling, not just lifting. Most musculoskeletal injuries are due to unbalanced movement and faulty movement habits but by incorporating our unique ‘essential events’ concept we can minimize injury risk and maximize outcomes.
With lectures, demos and full colour notebook we will ensure you know how to build single exercises safely and appropriately to best serve the body’s holistic wholeness. Make the warm up, exercise and cool down really matter … regardless if your goal is to increase flexibility, power up the strength or to get better static and dynamic control for more balanced movement.
Learn how to optimize recovery, stress management and nutrition in training, in recovery and to support the healing process.
