Review of Assess and Correct: Breaking Barriers to Unlock Performance

Review of Assess and Correct Assess and Correct: Breaking Barriers to Unlock Performance is a resource put out by Bill Hartman, PT, CSCS, USAW, Mike Robertson, MS, CSCS, USAW, and Eric Cressey, MA, CSCS in 2009. As they say on the DVD cover, “this is the first product to empower athletes and fitness enthusiasts with not only a series of self-assessments to identify muscular imbalances; but, also exercise progressions to correct those inefficiencies.” The resource includes: 27 dynamic self-assessments bad credit and i need a loanloans with guarantor1-hour online payday loan A Comprehensive Static Assessment Guide 78 corrective exercises for improving mobility and stability (based on the results of your self-assessment) A written collection of warm ups specific to certain athletic populations A complete guide to self-soft tissue work, and a rationale for it Assess and Correct gives you 2 DVD’s. The first guides you through the 27 assessments, while the second demonstrates the 78 corrective exercises showing progressions from beginner to advanced. Both DVD’s have helpful visual and vocal coaching cues to bring your attention to what you should focus on in each assessment and corresponding correction. Also included in the package are 4 e-books. The first is a 137 page manual that details all of the assessments and corrective exercises, the second is a 21 page resource of warm ups broken down by type of sport/activity, third is a guide to self-soft tissue work using foam rollers and other tools, and the fourth is a collection of stretches. www.uaclinics.com This resource would make a great addition to the learning library of any strength and conditioning specialist, personal trainer, coach, athlete, or active individual.

Let’s Get Specific

Accomplishing a Goal from Ann Wendel on Vimeo. I am proud to say that I have been getting strong! I set a goal for myself back in May that I would be able to get across the monkey bars at the playground (“You mean like this, Mom?” my 13 year old said as she easily went back and forth a few times……..) Yes, like that. Most of you know that I was a competitive swimmer for all of my growing up years, and even made the travel team as a freshman at a D1 school. I had a seriously strong upper body. I looked forward to the Presidential Physical Fitness Test every year, because I couldn’t wait to school almost everyone at the pull ups (except for you, Karl Torchia, because you were the man!) I could bang out at least 15 pull ups without breaking a sweat. So, it was a shock to me a few years ago when my kids started doing the monkey bars, and I jumped right up to show them how it was done, and couldn’t hold myself up on the bar. Uh-oh. I guess I had more important things to do, because I just never tried again. Until last spring. I was ready to commit to my goal. I started out slowly, just hanging on the bar. Then, I got to where I could do 1 or 2 rungs before I had to drop down. And I kept practicing all summer long, until I finally did it all the way across! Yea! And then I thought, well, maybe I can do chin ups, too. So I started working on chin ups (palms facing me). I began with negative chin ups, jumping up and then slowly lowering myself down, and progressed to one leg assisted […]
