Item: WA16-P500


4Q is a powerful programming framework that adapts to any client need, every type of movement, and gives you an at-a-glance understanding of imposed demands, expected tissue responses and recovery needs.

Learn to easily organize a program that balances training with recovery, intensity with rest, specificity with randomness and structure with variance in and out of the gym setting. 4Q provides the why and when behind exercise selection. This comprehensive approach to effective program design makes it simple to get it right for every client, every time.

In this course, participants will learn the following:
• The four quadrants of program design and the rationale for each of these quadrants in creating well balanced programs
• Exercises from each of the quadrants
• Systematic regressions and progressions
• How to put 4Q into practice

Lunch (1 hour) is on your own.

This preconference workshop qualifies for CECs from several certification agencies. Exact CEC hours and approvals are pending.

Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion
