Fascial Fitness Foundation Course
Fascial Fitness leaves behind the idea of isolated muscles and moves towards integration. Muscles work in chains to execute movements, and work just as much as fascial tensioning systems as movers of levers and hinges. Research has shown us that training the fascial system van improve performance and prevent injury. A well trained and well integrated fascial net optimizes peak forces as well as the coordination of detailed movements. It's not the joint receptors giving information about how the body behaves kinesthetically, but the many receptors located in the fascia. That means, not the skin is our biggest sensory organ, but fascia. With fascial training you can push your limits of performance.
This course is taught by Robert Schleip, a frontrunner in the field of fascial research. In this course we will cover the role of fascia in stretching, injury, recovery, and training. The focus will be on fascial plasticity, hydration, histological response as well as training technieques and principles which will affect the power, rebound elasticity, and coordination of the fascial system.
