Personalized Movement Analysis and Corrective Methods Class
January 26, 2013
2:00pm – 5:00pm at CrossFit Construct

Instructors:  Dr. Josh Akin, Coach Derek Freiberg, Dr. Sunil Pullukat, Dr. Jon Sebby

This class will address common issues that arise during workouts whether it be the inability to maintain proper position throughout a lift, attain enough mobility to accomplish a lift or perform a particular movement without experiencing pain during or afterwards.

Throughout the class, common dysfunctional patterns will be identified and screened for you and techniques and methods will be taught to deal with and alleviate your issues.  You will be individually assessed and taught how to combat the restrictions or issues that you have been experiencing.

The class will emphasize the proper postural alignment beginning with the core including determining your functional capability, strength and ability to maintain stabilization through all movements. A particular focus will be on the diaphragm, so that you learn how to establish core activation and its application in proper breathing technique.  We will then apply the same principals to the upper and lower extremity with particular importance on being able to maintain what you have learned about core function in any movement whether it be ankle mobility, hip hinge, deep overhead squat, deadlift or overhead press.

Cost: $75.00
