112 TriggerPoint™: From Assessments to Performance—Using Mobility as the Foundation for Function 
WORKSHOP

1:00–5:00pm KYLE STULL, DHSC
Logo Image

Mobility is a buzzword in the health and fitness industry that has spawned its own industry and become increasingly used as part of the warm-up process. While mobility and flexibility play an important role in performance, forcing everyone into the same stretches may not yield the best results. Research suggests that increasing range of motion doesn’t necessarily mean an increase in function. This workshop is designed to help you prepare your clients for any form of training, from athletic performance to fat loss.

Discover how to streamline assessments by beginning with a general movement test and progressing to more specific assessments when necessary. Based on the assessments, we will identify and design specific mobility exercises using the TriggerPoint MB5 for advanced self-myofascial release. Learn key concepts for foundational stability drills and key patterns to help transfer this new range of motion to increased function.
