Did you ever wonder why you aren’t supposed to let your knees go beyond your toes during a squat? Do you have clients with excessive valgus, joint degeneration or torn (or repaired) ligaments and don’t know what leg exercises they should, or more importantly, shouldn’t be doing? This workshop will help trainers gain a more in-depth understanding of joint mechanics and the types of forces that can be tolerated. Discover new ways to modify exercises so you are better prepared to address unique anatomical/mechanical issues with confidence.
