Anatomy of Agility – Verona, Italy 2020
June 13 @ 9:00 am - June 14 @ 5:00 pm$1350
Injury prevention and performance in agility
The key problem in both training and sport rehabilitation is to identify the specificity of exercises and so to determine how the training stimulus transfers to positive adaptation. This problem is nowhere bigger than in open skills.
The most promising approach to solve the problem comes from dynamic system theory focusing on stability in movement. Understanding anatomy within this theory leads to a building block approach for even the seemingly most chaotic movement patterns. Anatomy can teach us how to not just move efficiently, but also how to self-protect against injury. From understanding self-organization in anatomy, one can plot out how movement should be assembled from combining small and stable units of anatomy into bigger units and into stable total patterns.
That way, what we do in the gym, can contribute to quality movement in sport. Frans Bosch’s most well-known quote ‘ strength training is coordination training against resistance’ reflects this building block approach.
In the courses agility as applied in all running based field sports, from tennis to American football, will be dissected along anatomical lines. The most modern ideas on motor control and motor learning are translated into clever strategies of learning and teaching and demonstrated in a number of practicals, that give the participants the opportunity explore a lot of new exercises interventions.
With the current risk of the Corona virus in Europe, registrations are for now still available. However should the threat of the virus continue or escalate, FBS & Magnitudo Training will make the decision as soon as possible to cancel/post-pone the two-day seminar. Refunds will be provided for each attendee in the event that cancellation is necessary.
