Description

Patellofemoral pain syndrome, and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and meniscus injuries are becoming too prevalent. Too many people are quad dominant and that could be leading to serious knee injuries. In this session, we will examine the anatomy and structure of the knee and lower extremity, learn simple assessment techniques to discover if your clients are quad dominant, and learn how to progress clients safely. Take away techniques to rehabilitate and protect the knees while developing increased strength and explosive power.

Brian Richey IDEA Author/Presenter

Brian, the owner/operator of Fit 4 Life DC, was born in Kailua, Hawai‘i, and graduated from the University of Hawai‘i with a B.S. in Exercise Science/Kinesiology. Brian is certified as a: • Medical Exercise Program Director through the American Academy of Health, Fitness and Rehab Professionals (AAHFRP) • Medical Exercise Specialist through AAHFRP • Post Rehabilitation Conditioning Specialist through AAHFRP • Certified Instructor of the M.E.L.T. Method • Certified Power Plate® Instructor Brian is also a graduate of the Honolulu School of Massage and was a Licensed Massage Therapist in the state of Hawai‘i. He has worked as a personal trainer since 1993 throughout Hawai‘i and Washington, D.C. Brian is also an instructor for the American Academy of Health, Fitness and Rehab Professionals and lectures nationwide. Although he was raised in paradise, Brian’s childhood wasn’t all fun in the sun. He was an obese child, and by the age of 18 was topping the scales at more than 420 lbs. "For me it was an addiction issue—I was addicted to food and couldn’t get enough. Now, I can’t blame anyone but myself. I had great role models; in fact my mom has been in the fitness industry since the late 70’s. After graduating from high school, I began seriously trying to lose the weight. And I did it in a unique way: diet and exercise. I started with exercise, five miles of walking around Diamond Head Crater in Waikiki everyday. While the walk itself was difficult, the hardest part was the ridicule I endured from the perfectly sculpted surfers I passed on a third of my route. But that steeled my desire. And I say desire because I wanted it; it went beyond just determination at that point. My weight began to come off slowly, but within three years I was under 200lbs. Now, I am almost 40 years old and my weight is around 220."

    The session was very informative. I am looking forward to implementing the exercises with clients that are dealing with symptoms discussed in the presentation. Brian Richey is a very skilled presenter. I plan on watching more sessions that IDEA offers.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this course and have watched it a handful of times given the very helpful information. Brian Richey has a great deal of knowledge and presents it in a very engaging way. I continue to use his tips with my clients.

    Excellent info; some tweaks on familiar exercises and a few new to me. I also appreciated the rationale behind the techniques. Well presented and informative.
