Description

Understanding Muscles and Movement explains in easy-to-understand terms how the whole body moves together as an integrated system of muscles, tendons, bones, ligaments, and fascia; information essential for understanding the causes of problematic and limiting musculoskeletal imbalances. This course also explains the unique approach of The BioMechanics Method in regard to understanding how gravity and ground reaction forces change the way the body moves – knowledge that is imperative for designing successful corrective exercise strategies.

Research shows that almost 90 percent of people who currently utilize the services of health, fitness and exercise professionals services report having temporary or chronic musculoskeletal issues that prevent them from performing even low-level physical activities without experiencing pain (Schroeder and Donlin 2013). Studies also show that one of the fastest growing segments of the population joining gyms is the over-55 demographic, yet only about 50 percent of fitness and exercise professionals report having the appropriate skills to serve people with muscle or joint pain and other physically limiting musculoskeletal conditions (IHRSA 2017; Schroeder and Donlin 2013).

The Understanding Muscles and Movement Course helps fill this gap in care by educating students about how dysfunctional myofascial structures can cause (or contribute to) musculoskeletal imbalances. This knowledge, and the competence it provides, is vital to the success of any professional designing corrective exercise programs for clients who experience muscle and movement restrictions.

Understanding Muscles and Movement is Module 2 of The BioMechanics Method Corrective Exercise Specialist course available through AAHF. It is available for purchase as a standalone course to enable students to learn about the musculoskeletal system and how it can be negatively affected by imbalances while also providing an affordable option for those interested in earning the full Corrective Exercise Specialist credential (i.e., TBMM-CES). The remainder of the TBMM-CES course components, which are also available through AAHF, include:

  • The Fundamentals of Structural Assessment
  • The Fundamentals of Corrective Exercise
  • The Complete Corrective Exercise Library
  • Corrective Exercise Program Design

The BioMechanics Method Corrective Exercise Specialist course is a step-by-step learning program. It is recommended that the course modules be completed in order to optimize the learning experience. If you choose to complete all five components of the program, you will receive a certificate signifying your competency as a Corrective Exercise Specialist from The BioMechanics Method.

Got Questions?

I like the format of AAHF program materials. I found the workbook and quizzes supplied very helpful to learn the material and prepare for the test. Thank you!

My AAHF course was comprehensive and well laid-out. It was also very succinct, easy to study for and very useful in day-to-day client programming.
