Understanding the Kinetic Chain for Goal Attainment
The body has numerous defined actions and movements. Providing resistance to those actions or movements represents an exercise. However, effective exercise selection should entail more than simply identifying a movement and loading it. Rather, the decision for a particular exercise should be based on individual client need, which in many cases is multi-factorial. Does the joint need more stability? Should the prime mover experience higher loads? Do the hip and trunk play a role, and if so is it for acceleration, deceleration or stabilization? Is range of motion an issue? Does the individual have the musculoskeletal or neuromuscular aptitude to perform the activity? All of these questions should embody the thought process of a certified personal trainer, which then leads to a prudent exercise decision in the workout design.
