This 1-day course is an introduction to Aaron Mattes' modality of Active Isolated Stretching. It is a great program for trainers who have an interest in corrective exercise and improving human movement. The goal of this course is to introduce students to the benefits of a neuromuscular approach to stretching and give them a series of exercises and drills used by top athletic coaches.
Participants will start by learning some simple assessment techniques to evaluate dysfunction in the hips and shoulders before moving on to building practical protocols to improve joint range of motion and function. From an anatomical perspective, this course will look at the most common causes of pain and movement dysfunction, why they happen and how to correct them. From a practical perspective - which muscles to stretch, which to foam roll, which typically need activation and which to strengthen.
By the end of the day, participants will be able to recognize and reverse the two most common faulty or compensatory movement patterns that lead to pain and injuries. We will also look at the benefits of stretching versus massaging or foam rolling and why some muscles respond better to isolated activation techniques rather than compound strength exercises.
