Rethinking the Big Patterns
In this seminar, participants will be able to determine the primary stance and plane that activities ranging from warm-up to conditioning in a typical fitness session belong in. Examples include the idea that change of direction in a shuttle sprint is a staggered lateral stance, frontal plane, low load, ballistic activity, and a power clean is a bilateral symmetrical stance, heavy, fast, ballistic activity.
Once participants are familiar with categorizing these activities, they will learn what the sensorimotor competencies of each of these stances and planes involves, and how many of these sensorimotor competencies apply in an invariant way across different domains of fitness expression. Finally, participants will be presented with an example program design that displays exactly how to weave all the stances, planes, and fitness qualities together for a new athlete/client that they would start working with.
