Isometrics: Prevent Movement for Rehabilitation & Elite Performance (L/A)
October 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
This session will explore Isometric training utilizing a fundamental gymnastics strength approach. Isometric exercises have long been utilized as a rehabilitation strategy and we will explore multiple positions to aid in Rehabilitation and Pre-habilitation of commonly injured areas. Promoting a balance of strength within the injured area while limiting inflammation will be the goal of the session using specific protocols.
Isometrics also bring incredible amounts of strength utilizing leverage and contraction. Fundamental Gymnastic positions inherently elicit a maximal contraction of the body in order to achieve the position. Additionally, the leverage can be exploited to increase or decreased the load of our bodyweight.
Participants will be shown progressions towards achieving the Natural Glute Ham Raise, the L- Sit and Hanging L- Sit, the Front Lever along with multiple isometric movements to promote Balance within major articulations of the body.
