Description

Understanding Muscles and Movement explains in easy-to-understand terms how the whole body moves together as an integrated system of muscles, tendons, bones, ligaments, and fascia; information essential for understanding the causes of problematic and limiting musculoskeletal imbalances. You will also learn the unique approach of The BioMechanics Method in regard to understanding how gravity and ground reaction forces change the way the body moves – knowledge that is imperative for designing successful corrective exercise strategies.

What Will I Learn?

  • In-depth anatomy information about muscles, tendons, bones, ligaments and fascia, including specific muscle origins, insertions and functions
  • The difference between traditional and functional anatomy, and how gravity and ground reaction forces change the way a body moves
  • The major muscle groups that will dictate the exercise strategies used to improve musculoskeletal health and alleviate associated dysfunction
  • How to use anatomy and assessment findings to design and integrate corrective exercise programming into clients’ training programs

• Susan (ACE Certified Professional) 5/16/2020 2:13 PM "This course gives practitioners a dynamic perspective on human movement that traditional anatomy doesn't capture. A valuable course and should be a part of any exercise/fitness certification!" • Jennifer (ACE Certified Professional) 5/5/2020 12:04 PM Five Stars. • Chad (ACE Certified Professional) 7/26/2019 2:17 AM "A fantastic course which helped me to understand the muscles and fascia involved in the bodies movement and how those muscles may be effected through overuse, misuse and injury. I am now able to better comprehend how my clients job, posture or exercise habits contribute to muscular imbalances and how those imbalances contribute to deficiencies in the rest of the kinetic chain. As a physical therapy patient I was able to contribute valuable insight into the rehabilitation of my knee. Highly recommended for all trainers. Invaluable course!" • Erin (ACE Certified Professional) 7/2/2019 5:13 AM "This is the second course I have taken from The Biomechanics Method and I love it. The courses are a great resource for review of anatomy and functional movement. There is video content and an anatomy chart for each structure so it is very well organized. I would recommend these courses so you can apply it to your daily programming with clients!" • Sonia (ACE Certified Professional) 6/7/2019 3:57 PM "Great course. Very informative. Simple to understand content. Highly recommend this course!"
