NASM Basics of Corrective Exercise Training introduces the fitness and health professional to NASM's proprietary Corrective Exercise Continuum, a system of training that uses corrective workout methods to help enhance muscle imbalances and movement performance to reduce the risk of injury.
This book includes several brand-new chapters that were not consisted of in NASM's previous corrective workout materials, including the reasoning for corrective workout training, assessments of health risk, fixed postural assessments, series of motion assessments, and strength assessments (manual muscle testing) as well as corrective workout methods for the cervical spinal column, elbow, and wrist.
There are more than 100 corrective workout techniques in the categories of self-myofascial release, fixed stretching, neuromuscular stretching, separated strength training, positional isometrics, and incorporated dynamic motions consisted of in the text. These, in addition to corrective workout methods for common movement problems seen in each sector of the body, make this text the premier resource for finding out and using NASM's organized method to corrective workout training.
