Description

As more and more research sheds light on tissue dynamics, we are becoming more aware of the role and behaviors of fascia (fibrous connective tissue matrix) and its importance in movement function. What is less clear, however, are guidelines around how to train and influence adaptation through this all important structure. This session is geared toward elucidating the research and clarifying the organization of program design around fascia, and then putting tangible exercises in place in a systematic way.
