Join Lenny Parracino (live) for a hands-on exploration of On Ground Function where you will experience the principles, strategies, and the application of three dimensional On Ground Functional Matrixes. In addition, how you can integrate on ground movements with other form of function in your current programs, be it rehab, training, conditioning or group – this class is for everyone!
This is your chance to spend an hour and a half LIVE with Gary and Doug Gray.
A few weeks ago we co-hosted a live presentation for some of the local coaches, personal trainers and strength coaches in our area to discuss the action of squatting and how it impacts athletes and individuals they work with on a daily basis. In this presentation Gary and Doug discuss the various dangers in traditional squats and how we can better prepare everyone to accept the loads and stresses of squatting in their day to day lives regardless of activity level.
Join Doug Gray (Live) as he showcases how to load the entire hip three-dimensionally with authentic motion in allowing balance to enhance the function of any patient/client. The Principle-Strategy-Technique Process of Applied Functional Science™ will be introduced and participants will learn more on how this influences balance training by going through the Balance Escalation workout, creating a workshop that will dramatically impact how you train the body!
Join Doug Gray (Live) as he discusses what constitutes the core and how to best train it for better function. The Principle-Strategy-Technique Process of Applied Functional Science™ will be introduced and you will learn more on how this influences the core by going through the Core Conversion workout. Various positions and actions to functionally feed the core in all three planes of motion will be leveraged, thus creating an online course that you will not want to miss!
Join Lenny Parracino (Live) for this hands-on workshop that will address the functional anatomy of the hip and explore useful assessment techniques the health professional can successfully use to determine the action of the hip and its chain reaction throughout the whole body. You will gain an understanding of the expected biomechanical reactions of movement and some of the common compensations through these assessment tools.
Join Lenny Parracino (Live) as he presents the thoracic spine a functional THREE dimensional cage capable or reacting, compensating and causing significant reactions in all parts of the body-in fact it is the CORE to core training. It is essential to understand how to assess and address its function. This course will cover a live demonstration of function, assessment and exercise recommendations specific to the thoracic spine.
Applied Functional Science™ Nomenclature is a language system in which any and all movement can be accurately defined and described. To best understand and utilize this system, it is imperative that one first understands Applied Functional Science™, consisting of a process that includes scientific principles stemming to formulated strategies in creating powerful and unlimited techniques. Unlimited techniques “ How does one know precisely the movement being implemented?
This module delves into the important concepts of three-dimensional muscle function. Because the human body functions as an integrated system – not isolated parts – the effects of muscles are considered beyond the anatomical joint or joints that a particular muscle may cross. Expanding our thinking beyond the anatomical model into the functional model opens up endless possibilities for assessment and training of individual muscles while integrated in the total body system.
This module provides insights into proprioceptors. Proprioceptors are the sensors in our joint capsules, muscle tendon units, and fascia that provides the body with the information needed to produce coordinated movement. It is essential to consider the “information” that our exercises send to the body when designing training programs.
This module focuses on the motion of the bones during full body functional movements. Joint motion results from the REAL bone motion of the adjacent bones that make up a joint. If the adjacent bones move RELATIVE to each other, then some motion has occurred at the joint. Understanding both the REAL bone motion and the RELATIVE joint motion during three-dimensional functional movements is critical to effective training and conditioning, as well as rehabilitation.
