The course begins with an overview of terms and concepts as it relates to the spine, hips, and how the movements are related. This understanding of anatomy and movement becomes essential when understanding the movements necessary for the four lifts we will be assessing. We start by learning the hip-hinge pattern, and why it is important as it related to our movements. After learning the hip-hinge and how to execute it, we dive into the assessments. We break each exercise down by the movements needed at each joint. We will assess the mobility at the joints and identify if we have joint mobility issues or an issue of motor control, which is simply how our body uses the muscles to perform an exercise. This motor control can be smooth and coordinated, or not so coordinated, which is what we will aim to improve! We will identify limitations and select the appropriate interventions to improve the limitations.
