NASM®: Corrective Exercise Model—Essentials and Beyond

Workshop presented by: Rick Richey, MS 10:30am – 4:00pm

As a trainer, you know that muscle imbalances lead to poor movement, and that poor movement leads to injury. Rather than simply working around client dysfunction, it might be time to start identifying, addressing and implementing a course of intervention to correct the issues that plague your clients.

By applying the concepts and practices introduced in this preconference workshop (all within the trainer’s scope of practice), you’ll walk away with programs and tools that will get your clients moving, functioning and feeling better.

In this preconference workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Apply the NASM corrective exercise (CEx) model
  • Conduct multiple movement assessments (e.g., overhead squat, single-leg squat, pushup, shoulder rotation)
  • Identify imbalances that lead to altered movement patterns and implement various movement interventions
  • Create peer programs for each major area of movement dysfunction
  • Implement the NASM CEx program for your clients

Lunch (30 minutes) is on your own.

This is not a certification. Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion.

The Role of Variability in Program Design, by ActivMotion Bar™

Workshop presented by: James J. McCormick, MS 11:10am - 12:40pm

There are two types of tissue in the human myofascial system, skeletal muscle and elastic connective tissue. People who perform repetitive movements over a long period of time run the risk of injuring these tissues. By applying a concept known as movement variability, trainers can help their clients to increase the strength of both tissues while reducing the risk of repetitive injury. In this session, we’ll explore the research and introduce tools and program design options that can be successfully integrated into any client’s program.

Progression and Regression Strategies—A Simplified Approach! Powered by Stroops

Workshop presented by: Christopher McGrath, MS 2:15 - 4:05pm

Progression strategies are a common topic in training, but very few programs exist that help simplify our approach, yet remain comprehensive. Even fewer incorporate coordinated approaches to regression strategies. In this workshop, we’ll use elastic resistance to address a universally applicable approach to training that will satisfy the needs of clients of all fitness and learning levels. We’ll address assisted concepts for proper pattern development, resisted principles for building strength and stability, and reactive techniques to improve control in unpredictable environments.
