This unique class incorporates detailed relational and fascial anatomy and relative biomechanics, with students starting to learn the correct mechanics, execution and application from the very beginning.
The abdominals (obliques, transverse, pyramidals and rectus abdominus) and the thoracic diaphragm need to be properly trained. These muscles are not only functional but aesthetic.
Participants will learn more than 100 exercises and their variations that can be used regularly in strength and conditioning as well as in the field of rehabilitation, especially for the spine, lumbo-pelvis dysfunction, abdominal wall separations, hernias and digestive disorders.
There are hundreds of specific exercises, which can solicit the proximal, distal, medial, lateral, middle, superficial or deep portions of each muscle in the lower extremities. The thorough details that are covered in this class will allow for an understanding of the numerous exercises that target specific areas of the lower limb. These exercises are applied, based on our goal, to specific conditioning goals, to address muscles imbalances, and a part of addressing specific orthopedic dysfunctions such as various joint dysfunctions, tendonitis, arthrosis, instability etc.
For each muscle group, the large muscles need to be trained with specific movements in relation to the quality of the required goal (strength, volume, power, speed, resistance, endurance and fitness maintenance).
The spinal muscles, meanwhile, need to be trained to improve their ability to provide postural support.
During part three of Soma Education’s Soma Training course, there are also numerous specific exercises which can solicit the proximal, distal, medial, lateral, middle, superficial or deep portions of each muscle in the upper extremities.
Students will learn more than 100 different exercises that are invaluable in both performance training and rehabilitation. The function of the shoulder girdle is a major topic of this seminar.
A complete analysis of the squat with respect to the entire body in relation to gravity line and various other aspects are to be taken into consideration when applying the squat. There are over a hundred progressions that have to be learned before a squat is completed properly.
This class will cover all of these progressions and lead to a fundamental understanding of proper progressions leading to the completion of a biomechanically-sound squat.
While the fundamentals are the same, the squat should be modified and applied differently to specific goals, which could be to improve a client’s posture, to rehabilitate the knee after an ACL injury, to help eliminate back pain or to improve someone’s athletic performance.
Posture is the basis for the balanced functioning of all joints and viscera. A good posture leads to an economy of energy expenditure. Our in-depth course on posture explains the many tests that can help ascertain proper posture and features numerous exercises to correct and improve it.
When it comes to circulatory concerns, numerous people suffer from problems of venous return (varices, varicosities; heavy legs, edema, etc). Simple, yet very precise exercises allow a stimulation of circulation of the blood in an anatomical and physiological sense for each vein.
The other part of this course covered respiration, and includes an abundance of exercises to improve the quantity of respiration.
The techniques taught in this course are qualitative in nature, allowing a very precise recruitment of each pulmonary segment in order to address any respiratory insufficiency that is frequently encountered (asthma, smoking-related issues, etc).
