Evan Osar: Corrective Exercise Essentials [Video]
Corrective exercise can be a confusing and controversial topic.
Some make corrective exercise the ‘be-all and end-all’ of their training programs, never incorporating the other elements that are needed to make progress.
Others dismiss corrective exercise altogether, thinking it to be ineffective, useless and merely another gimmick that will quickly fade away.
Like most things, however, the truth about corrective exercise lies somewhere in the middle.
In the following video, Dr. Evan Osar, a chiropractor and the author of Corrective Exercise Solutions to Common Shoulder and Hip Dysfunction and Integrative Corrective Exercise Approach covers some essentials about corrective exercise, including:
- What corrective exercise is and what it is not
- The 3 biggest myths surrounding corrective exercise
- Myth #1: “Just get clients moving. Stop focusing on corrective exercise and trying to achieve perfection.”
- Myth #2: “Your client, group exerciser or athlete doesn’t need to know anatomy and biomechanics. You just need to focus on training them.”
- Myth #3: “Corrective exercise inhibits a person from getting stronger.”
- The golden rules of corrective exercise
- How to incorporate corrective exercise into your current programs using 3 simple steps
- Sample programming incorporating corrective and progressive exercise patterns
