Are We Part of the Problem?

Reducing movement compensation patterns in the training session.
The golden training  hour is a miracle of human interaction.  The modern trainer has to be equal part coach, programmer, cheerleader, camp counselor, friend, nutritionist, and confidant. However, in the quest to create functional and fit clients, we too often see that people are moving in unsustainable and mechanically poor positions.  Nearly universal industry increases in the use of intensity, load, metabolic demand, volume, speed, and novelty have moved the need to limit the reinforcement of movement compensation to the front of the modern coach’s problem list.  The coach/trainer must be able to identify, anticipate, and limit their athlete’s compensation strategies.  As movement professionals, our training sessions cannot reinforce and contribute to movement related dysfunctions down the road.  This lecture/breakout will give the participant practical tools to address and limit compensation patterning in their clientele.
