Assessing Hip Extension - We review some of the hip assessment techniques from level 1 course, along with some new ones, to look at the mobility of the hip, but also it's stability in extension. Keeping the hip centralised in the hip socket is essential in preventing injuries to the front of the hip.
Improving Hip Extension - We respect the Order of Priority in exploring ways to improve hip extension safely in all individuals. We then use the structured sequence of Mobilise, Isolate, Integrate & Function to create carefully planned sequences of exercises to improve optimal control of the hip in extension.
Assessing Spinal Mobility - This section looks at assessing the spine in multiple situations, from low grade passive testing to high level sports specific assessment. This allows us to tailor the conditioning program for each performer to their own specific needs for maximal efficiency and effectiveness.
Safely Improving Spinal Mobility - Respecting to order of priority can create dramatic improvements in range of motion in the spine. The follow up sequences of deep stability work coupled with higher level exercises ensures the spine is protected as performers begin to deepen their practice.
Curating a Program - We work through the specially designed sample programs to help you gain confidence in curating a customised program for each individual. Sample programs and templates do most of the work for you in applying the work directly to your students.
