Join me for an immersive experience where I’ll teach you my analytical approach to biomechanics, human movement, injury prevention, building muscle and program design.
Muscle Mechanics is not just about targeted hypertrophy training. Anyone can shift weights from A to B – but it takes a particular style of training to bring up lagging body parts, correct imbalances and grow muscle mass optimally whilst remaining injury and pain free.
You will learn proper exercise selection and execution for optimal contractions and the biomechanics behind intelligent training design.
This isn’t just for bodybuilders wanting to bring up stubborn body parts – anyone interested in improving their muscular development, relative strength, structural balance, rehabilitate injuries or train with longevity in mind can greatly benefit from understanding proper biomechanics and training for hypertrophy.
The 2 day event will be split as follows
1. The Science of Hypertrophy
– The 4 factors of hypertrophy, training for different body types, understanding the importance of building muscle across all fields of life, mTOR stimulation
2. Functional & Structural Anatomy
Understanding basic anatomy – fascia, muscles and connective tissue – and how they interrelate for optimal movement, muscle activation and growth.
The basics on torque, tension, levers and the manipulation of principles of physics to maximally stimulate muscle whilst minimising wear and tear on your joints.
3. Introduction to Biomechanics & Human Movement (Practical)
Learn how to activate and optimally stimulate each muscle group individually.
Exercises, execution tips, internal vs external cueing and coaching frameworks.
1. Foundational Assessments (Practical)
– Learn to assess, diagnose and correct imbalances. Build up lagging body parts, rehabilitate injuries, and prepping the connective tissues and joints to achieve structural balance and freedom of motion.
2. Integrative Biomechanics (Practical)
Advanced human movement. Diving deep into the assessment, troubleshooting and corrective processes on complex lifts, including execution cues, tips and corrective considerations for rehabilitation and building strength.
3. Mobility vs Flexibility (Practical)
The use of Yoga, Stretching, Pre Workout Activation Drills, Post Activation Potentiation, Breathing & Bracing mechanics, Warm Ups & Cool Downs
4. Program Design & Long Term Periodisation
– From Macro to Micro. Understanding your specific client considerations, and the framework for building out an intelligent training program – exercise selection, exercise sequencing, reps, sets, rest, pace – mapped out over an extended period of time.
Periodisation & Programming of training for performance, hypertrophy and longevity. Understanding the intelligent use of isometrics, bands, chains, drop sets, forced reps and intensifying techniques.
