4.5 NCSF CEUs | 9 CDR CPEs

Great athletes make difficult moves look effortless with a combination of skill, strength, and balance. Traditional conditioning builds a fitness base, but modern sports training takes into account athletic movement patterns. The Athletic Body in Balance course is the first of its kind to show you how to train for smooth, fluid movement and prevent muscle imbalances, mobility restrictions, stability problems, and injuries.

The Athletic Body in Balance program focuses on exposing deficiencies in order to form a foundation for long-term training gains. The course teaches you to identify functional weaknesses; correct imbalances; explore your potential; and refine sport-specific movement skills such as jumping, kicking, cutting, and turning. You will see where conditioning is breaking down and how to get your body back on track.

List Price: $119.00

The Athletic Body in Balance Video course covers five assessment tests to help you find the imbalances in movement patterns, sample corrective exercises to improve mobility and stability, and ways to integrate these exercises into a regular training program. The tests include:

  • deep squat—assessing the mobility and stability of the hips, knees, and ankles
  • hurdle steps—evaluating bilateral mobility and stability of the hips, knees, and ankles
  • in-line lunge—determining hip mobility and stability, quadriceps flexibility, and ankle and knee stability on both sides of the body
  • straight leg raise—gauging hamstring flexibility
  • seated rotation—measuring uppertrunk stability during a combined upper- and lower-body movement

Prepare and repair your body for ultimate athletic performance with Athletic Body in Balance.
