Course Objective: Provide athletes a toolkit to safely improve their range of motion, positioning for load bearing, and work capacity of the hip and lower back with special applicability to the CrossFit movement pool.
Teddy will provide broadly applicable concepts to the entire class. Additionally, he will assess and provide guidance to individual athletes with an eye to eliminating specific athlete movement pathologies. The class will target common movement patterns found in CrossFit workouts.
The hip and lower back complex provide special movement benefits and risks to the CrossFit athlete. The ability to transmit mechanical energy from the strong leg muscles, up a strong core to an external load is especially powerful capability. However, this capability also requires specific movement preparation, movement technique, and load stabilization technique to train safely and efficiently.
Additionally, Teddy will illustrate certain warning signs and red-flags that indicate the athlete may require professional attention to a potential injury.
This interactive seminar will engage athletes in an interactive discussion and lecture format; providing athletes with safe and effective techniques achieve movement objectives.
