Course Outline

The Pearson Method Lower Body course is designed to identify weaknesses at the hip, knee and ankle particularly for those who are having muscular issues (fatigue, discomfort, pain) with weight training for the lower body: squats, deadlifts, back extensions, leg presses. Once weaknesses have been detected, specific activation techniques, stretches and strength rehabilitation exercises can then be prescribed progressing to particular rehab strength exercises in the gym.

You will learn anatomy for the lower body, range of motion tests, biomechanics tests, resisted muscle tests, strength rehabilitation exercises, the optimal treatments to help muscle growth and resolve injuries, activation techniques and advanced strength rehabilitation exercises. This includes current injuries, post-surgery, old/chronic injuries.

This course is designed for personal trainers, coaches, athletes and therapists to help resolve injuries with weight lifting, injury prevention and to increase lifts both under load and body-weight safely for competitive purposes - or just passion.

The course is both theory and hands-on so please bring comfortable clothing.
