Did you ever wonder why you aren`t supposed to let your knees go beyond your toes during a squat? Do you have clients with excessive valgus, joint degeneration, or torn (or repaired) ligaments and don`t know what leg exercises they should, or more importantly, shouldn`t be doing? Squats and Lunges: Dispelling Myths Through Mechanics is designed to help trainers gain a more in-depth understanding of joint mechanics and the types of forces that can be tolerated. The DVD details new ways to modify exercises so that trainers are better prepared to confidently address unique anatomical/ mechanical issues.
Among the topics covered:
- Anatomical communication: structure
- Mechanics: function
- Realities within an exercise
