The main problem with training people, is that there are so many opinions. It is important to note, sometimes, that everyone has the same intention in our industry, and that is to get better. To me, it seems like the route to follow with a client can also guide your education. The following is a diagram showing this.

Course and career route

As you can see from this, it is all about having that initial qualification, to open the door, that will allow you to gain further education to work with the clients you would like to work with most.

The idea behind our courses are to give you an insight in to movements first, to allow you to understand which techniques you may need with your client. This drives our idea of ruling the tool. Look at the video below, how much are you seeing?

At FASTER we teach a base movement, the squat. We will eventually change this base movement to reinforce the skill of squating, in this case, and improve both performance and injury resistance. At the Specialist level, we see 6 motions at each bone on the way down and the way up, so 108 motions for the bones and then 96 joint descriptions and all the muscles reactions based on this. This is used to help us to extract the skill components of the movement. After this, we use the PAC and PMAC forms to identify goals, environments and other information then all that is left, is to build the exercises. Below is a set of exercises that keep the squat variables of a bend at the hip, knee and ankle, yet still challenging the squat against different angles, speeds and from one leg to two legs. (The set of exercises below are taken from the Training In’tension course).
