People who participate in repetitive physical activities such as running or weight lifting tend to accumulate numerous injuries and eventually plateau. To maintain or improve function of the body, we've learned that the entire human system (muscles, nervous system, joints, fascia, etc.) requires variability in force, movement and application of certain variables. This lecture will explore the reasons why the body needs variability in training to function optimally, and will demonstrate how to develop intelligent programs to meet our clients' needs.
