Fundamentals of Strength & Conditioning

This workshop is designed to provide sports professionals with the basic knowledge, understanding and fundamental practical skills of athletic strength and conditioning. The workshop will facilitate the learner’s awareness of sensitive periods of development in given movements, muscular endurance and learner technique. Furthermore the workshop will develop learner’s knowledge around sport specific “game based demands” on biomechanical movement and strength.

Functional Screening

Research has shown that observation of human movement which replicated common sporting movements can be used to develop strategies for injury prevention and enhanced athletic performance. New research shows that an observation of movement using the Overhead Squat Test, Single Leg Squat and Drop Jump Landing Mechanics may carry the reliability necessary to help therapists determine the best integrated therapeutic plan to reduce athletes/players injury risk.
