The Groundbreaking Warm-up Routine to Enhance the Musculoskeletal System
STOP doing static stretching before? Stretching is an effective and efficient part of a warm-up routine before and after physical exertion and sports performance to deliberately elongate and improve the elasticity within the musculotendinous junction. As a result, parents, coaches, sports scientists, and medical professionals have ingrained stretching into the hearts of athletes, clients, and patients of all ages for decades. However, the type of stretching best suited to enhance fitness levels, athletic execution and realign chronic scar tissue has been in question for the past several years. The optimum stretching method for any client is a Dynamic warm-up/stretching regimen. Traditional static stretching routine should be performed at the cool-down phase of training or exercise only! For many athletes, clients, and patients, whether they are stretching for personal fitness goals, competition, or knee rehabilitation, their top priority is to use the best possible warm-up routine to create an even greater fitness level, competitive edge, or rehabilitation plan while decreasing the likelihood of injury.
Rehabilitating patients and training clients and athletes requires a complete understanding of a variety of stretching regimens and protocols specifically for any physical exertion. This one-day seminar provides the opportunity to develop effective strategies to teach dynamic stretching drills to increase soft tissues contractibility and facilitation, tendon and ligament activation, joint range of movement, core body temperature, mental preparation, and stimulate the neuromuscular system and motor ability to function dynamically. Course participants will explore the benefits of dynamic stretching techniques and specific regimens for the upper and lower extremities to increase rate of muscle twitch, mobility, strength, and stability, hence preventing musculoskeletal injuries and implementing into the stages of the healing process. Through multiple hands-on lab sessions, interactive lecture, and multimedia technology, this class provides attendees with a solid grasp of "who and how-to" for utilizing active stretching protocols creatively when faced with any population for the enhancement of fitness, performance, injury prevention, or rehabilitation. The instructor's enthusiasm and passion for the content is truly infectious, so attendees leave with not only practical approaches and new techniques to implement immediately, but also an optimistic, fresh approach to stretching and soft tissue enhancement.
