He pulls together an awesome team to dig into properly assessing movement to find issues then fix your workouts with proper exercises.
Rick Kaselj – He’s Been Here Before
For those of you that have been around for a while, or scoured the site, may recognize Rick’s name. That’s because he’s been here before. Rick is a trainer from Canada, eh, who has developed a specialization in addressing injuries and muscular imbalances. We did an interview where Rick talked about the need to Move it Or Lose it – keep moving.
While I still am refusing to believe that I’m in my forties and at some point need to say I’m old. I will admit that I’m much more aware of how my body moves; or doesn’t move. Those aches and pains can often be addressed by digging deeper into the biomechanics of how we move.
That same mind-set is why we launched Kettlebell Form Check – get your form right and avoid issues later on.
Rick knows this first hand from his experience helping people address injuries and work towards regaining mobility. Enter the 3rd edition of his Muscle Imbalances program.
Muscle Imbalances Revealed – 3rd Edition
As a fitness & health professional or exercise enthusiast we often just focus on strength, flexibility and cardiovascular techniques with our clients to help them reach their fitness goals. By just focusing on these three exercise techniques you hamper your client’s performance results, ability to bust through fitness plateaus, overcome injuries and remain injury-free. To get past this, what you need in your toolbox is a full understanding of muscle imbalances.
Muscle Imbalances Revealed goes beyond stretching what is tight, strengthening what is weak or just performing corrective exercises. It assists the fitness & health professional or exercise enthusiast in understanding the synergies that exist within the body and walks you through the intricacies of muscle imbalances.
In the Assessment & Exercise Edition of Muscle Imbalances Revealed you will be guided by 4 experts from various health professions on how to perform a number of assessments that will allow you to pin-point problems and then give you the exercises to fix those problems in order to improve performance, athleticism, fitness results, injury prevention and injury recovery.
