Muscle System Specialist Advanced Course 1: Decision Making, Session Planning, and Exercise Process




Course Description

This content begins to answer the following questions:

Can you define your body-view?

How many degrees of freedom does a human body have?

How many individual pieces make up the human body?

How can we identify and describe the human body’s system state from our perspective?

What are the features and characteristics of the human body we are interested in?

Where do our notions of how the bio-motor system should function (normatively) originate?

How can we use force(s) to make observations about the system’s motor control?

What is the process of corroboration and why is it important in decision making in exercise?

Course Objectives and Goals

Review the Philosophical Construct informing the Methodologies outlined in the Muscle System Specialist course.

  1. Review the literature and science methods that inform the Philosophy and Methodology put forth.
  2. Discuss how to read/interpret data collected from Client Assessment Samples in terms of how to build plan and where to begin the first session
  3. How to corroborate and weight different information.
  4. How to build rational and defensible client plans from current data.
  5. Review, in detail, the QMAMC and the SARS application, interpretation, and utilization.
  6. Introduce new terminology and process for the various modes of joint/limb/trunk angle and muscle attachment distance change. (Isometric, Miometric, Pliometric) and discuss Configurations and Qualitative Research and Practice.
  7. Discuss Post Activation Potentiation and its relationship to the QMAMC and bio-motor control
  8. Discuss application of Isometrics, Miometrics, Pliometrics, and their combinations.

What You Will Learn

  1. Learn new processes for improving bio-motor control quality.
  2. Reinforce existing knowledge and competencies.
  3. Create an open dialogue and sharing about new ideas and ways of addressing – via exercise – movement issues presented by clients.
  4. See a deeper and broader understanding of muscle function with strategies and techniques to improve its quality.
  5. Improve the practitioners’ ability to meet the client where they are as far as initial force application, volume, and intensity (assessing and balancing risk).
