What all strengthening systems and forms of exercise have in common.
From yoga to bodybuilding, Pilates to Crossfit, all systems of force application stimulate change in the performance of muscle, e.g. how much tension the muscle can generate and for how long, how quickly it can generate tension, how much it can change length, etc.
At FNS1 we explore the cascade of events from the brain to the contractile machinery inside a muscle cell that lead to changes in the muscle's performance.
We will explore breakthroughs in neuromuscular control, neuroendocrinology, and the relationship between the fitness of the body and the fitness of the mind. Each piece of information is linked to practical application. In addition to the topics that we have covered in previous courses, we will explore these critical, exciting topics:
- Why is it so important to move/exercise? Perhaps you've heard the biomechanical reasons. Come and hear the neuroendocrine, neuromuscular, and neuromechanical reasons that we must move and move well.
- Are there limits to the efficacy of counting reps, telling people to breath, and cojoling people to work harder?
- What is the purpose of the brain? What is the purpose of the mind? Is there a difference? Why should you care?
- In addition to positively affecting body composition, blood pressure, flexibility, strength, self esteem, etc., can exercise have a positive affect on our families and community at large?
- Using our various evaluation methods, how do we determine "what's the issue with the tissue?" (yeah, that's a tag line)
It would be my pleasure to spend a few days with you this winter in sunny Los Angeles or this spring in Chicago for the next FNS1 courses. All fitness and healthcare professionals are welcome. For more details, please click on the images below. If you have already taken FNS1 in the past 2 years and would like to attend, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a special discount.
Thank you for your consideration. If you know of someone who might be interested in FNS1, please share this. I hope to see you in class. FNS2 is coming May 16-18!
