Delegates have a choice of three practical sessions each day. Don’t worry – each session is repeated on each day so you will be able to attend them all.
Functional or Fancy Exercising Techniques – How new concepts in fascia anatomy and science have changed the techniques of exercising posture
Many exercise programs are designed with outdated concepts about human gross anatomy and knowledge of its fascia architecture. The techniques and body posture used by most practitioners continue to be favoured due to popularity or because ‘it’s always been this way.’ As a result, many exercise routines do not demonstrate any functional basis for their effectiveness. Evidence has shown that many exercises do not target the true bio-movements of sporting activities in an effective and functional manner. Simply Functional Training is training that is specific to the body’s bio-movement that you are attempting to execute.
This type of segmental training creates more myofascial imbalances and creates a platform in the body’s structure which increases the risk of injury and substandard performance. The concept of Global Functional Training (GFT) approach with proper posture to address the biotensegrity nature of body architecture is more effective and efficient. GFT prevents imbalances in the body milieu, reduces the risk of injuries, improves the elastic integrity of the body tissues, and ultimately enhances performance.
In other words, it is time we move away from “The One Size Fits All” cliché.
Objective: This hands-on workshop will address the clinical implication (effects on body’s structure) of non-functional exercise techniques for typical body’s strength and condition training programs. The more functional biotensegral approach (alternative techniques and postures) to replace these conventional types of exercises routines will be highlighted and demonstrated.
Come prepared and dressed for practical exercise session!
The following will be discussed and demonstrated:
- Understanding of the concepts of functional movements and how it relates to our present understanding of the body’s fascia architecture
- Presentation of clinical cases, which illustrates the effects of poor exercise techniques and posture on the body’s architecture.
- Demonstrate alternative functional efficient and practical techniques and posture based on fascia and biotensegrity concepts to present-day exercise routines used in basic exercise programs (e.g sit ups, shoulder exercises, lower leg exercises etc)
- Make a case for Global Functional Training (GFT) concepts which is based on present knowledge of fascia anatomy & science and biotensegrity concept
