Principles For Coaches To Assess And Improve Mobility & Movement

Presented by Mobilise Activate Perform & GLC2000
Most people understand that they should be doing something to look after their joints, loosen up and increase their flexibility. There is a wealth of information available, but having access to a library of drills or stretches is close to worthless if we are treating a symptom rather than the causes of an issue. This seminar will provide coaches and athletes with an applicable framework to diagnose the causes of poor movement effectively, and provide a broad toolbox of exercises to improve movement patterns.
Mobility is low hanging fruit
Small changes can lead to big improvements in quality of life and athletic performance.
Allow for consistent progress
Athletes being able to train and compete an entire season yields the highest potential for improvement.
Mobilise with purpose
Most mobility is performed on a ad hoc basis, often based on what is programmed for the day or an athletes ‘go to’ exercises. Helping coaches and athletes build a structured programme, with predefined mobility goals will provide superior results.

Seminar will provide participants with:

  • A framework to diagnose/understand incorrect/inefficient movement patterns
  • Principles to correct flawed movement patterns for common exercises (squat variations, deadlift, olympic lifts)
  • Strategies that help to restore broad function to joints and tissues
  • Tools to maximise athletic performance
  • Concepts to prevent and rehabilitate common injuries
  • Confidence to create progressive mobility programming in a group or individual setting
