401: Body-Weight Training--Function or Fiction

Time Block M - Saturday, 4:00-5:50pm
Session Format: Workshop

Are body-weight training and manual resistance functional and appropriate ways to train? We crawl before we walk and walk before we run. We usually ride a bike before we drive a car. Yet for some reason, we enter the gym long before we have mastered our own body weight! The science behind body-weight training and manual resistance shows amazing results relative to skill transfer, proprioception, range of motion, balance and strength. This type of training has a very low rate of injury and is shown to enhance the five most basics skills of functional movement. Come learn countless progressions and regressions to suit any client, along with multiplanar exercises. Attack the central core like never before! This session utilizes the Lebert Equalizer and Buddy System™ and is sponsored by Lebert Fitness.
