Paul Venner is an expert in movement optimization for better sports performance. The
relationship between motor control, learning and transfer of training has his particular
interests. He gained his first experience in Strength & Conditioning and Sport Science at the
Institute of Sports in Sydney (NSWIS), pursued a Msc. in Strength & Conditioning in London
(St. Mary’s University Twickenham) and worked for five years at the Olympic Institute of the
Netherlands (NOC*NSF). His current role is as Head of Athletic Performance for the
Netherlands Baseball & Softball Federation since 2015. Furthermore he developed the
concept and brand Ultimateinstability® with the training products Aquabags®, Aquaballs®
and Hydrovest®.

The Frans Bosch approach

The key problem in both training and sports 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 systems 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.

Changing the way we think about movement & performance

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.

Anatomy of Agility

Learning Outcomes
  • Being able to analyse agility patterns, distinguish between stable attractor based and transferable components and on-off and irrelevant components of running
  • Being able to analyse the specificity of exercises for learning/improving agility
  • Planning learning progress for agility patterns
Knowledge
  • Overview of anatomy and its function in high intensity movement
  • Understanding the relevant principles of dynamic systems and its translation to high intensity movement
  • Building blocks of agility and navigation though self-assembly principles of relevant movement patterns
Competencies
  • Become capable of viewing agility from multiple viewpoints (motor control, biomechanics, anatomy). This entails lateral thinking to solve movement problems that cannot be solved from a single viewpoint approach.
  • The ability to use acquired theoretical knowledge to design practical training method
  • The ability to observe and correct movement patterns online through intrinsic learning
Ongoing self development
  • The course is information rich and the content is presented in such a way that participants after the course will be able to independently develop ideas and concepts relevant to their field of work, e.g. to design a curriculum for the environment they work in.

Injury Prevention & Rehabilitation

Learning Outcomes
  • Being able to integrate motor control, motor learning and contextual movement in earlier stages of rehab
  • Being able to design injury prevention protocols based in self-organization of anatomy, specific for the athletes one works with
  • Having a framework to navigating through motor control and motor learning literature
Knowledge
  • Integrating aspects of anatomy (self-stabilization of structures, force distribution though passive tissue) with functional and contextual movement patterns.
  • Integrating dynamic systems with result orientated control and computation theories
  • Analysis of motor control aspects of injury
  • Single stressor rehab protocols for hamstrings, knee, and calf injuries
Competencies
  • Being able to connect movement patterns to stresses in the body and self-protection mechanisms
  • The ability to use acquired theoretical knowledge to design rehab and prehab protocols
  • The ability to observe and correct movement patterns online through intrinsic learning
  • Capable of critically evaluating scientific claims on transference of adaptations across movement patterns and so evaluating far transfer effects of interventions
Ongoing self development
  • The course is information rich and the content is presented in such a way that participants after the course will be able to independently develop ideas and concepts relevant to their field of work.

ACL Rehab: Single-Stressor Protocol

A coordination based reconditioning approach to prevention & rehabilitation of ACL injuries

Learning Outcomes
  • Understand the causative mechanisms of ACL injuries from a motor control standpoint
  • Understand the steps in progressing through a guideline ACL protocol
  • Learn the fundamental movement attractors for protection of the knee/ACL and how to train these in practice
  • Clinical reasoning skills for prescribing elite level exercise prescription in the context of ACL rehabilitation
Knowledge
  • Overview of the complex anatomical and biomechanical components that are pivotal to protecting the knee joint
  • Develop understanding & practice in implementation of a ‘single-stressor’ rehab model in the context of ACL injuries
  • Innovative strength & conditioning concepts and how to apply these efficiently in the rehab process from an early stage
  • Understanding of protocol as a guideline that has competency based steps to continuing competition
Competencies
  • The ability to use the underpinning theoretical principles to develop and adjust rehab planning
  • The ability to observe movement patterns and adjust training stress using the principles of motor learning
  • Adding practical exercise prescription examples and concepts to the process of ACL rehabilitation
Ongoing self development
  • This single-day course provides a unique perspective in the approach to ACL injuries. Beyond this seminar participants will be able to broaden their scope in the way they manage these injuries and understand how to merge these ideas with their current philosophy.
  • This course is an opportunity for those working in medical care/rehab to expand upon the concepts presented in the other topics, and apply them in a more specific (rehab) context

Easily the highlight of my year was attending a 4 day seminar with John Pryor, Leigh Egger and Frans Bosch. It was an incredibly informative seminar and has reenergized me. If you have the opportunity to go in the future, I highly recommend it. Worth every dollar!

Jon BeylePE Teacher, Track & Field Coach

Thank you for providing me with one of the best professional development experiences I’ve ever had. It is easy to see you all do this to help others and improve our industry! I will be surely recommending your program to my network of professionals.

Ron ArnoldStrength Coach & Athletic Trainer

I have completely revamped my athletes practices since the seminar. They love the work that we're doing, and the results were almost immediately apparent.

John PollackTrack Athlete & Coach

What a great 4 days at UNC, attending the Frans Bosch Injury Prevention/Rehabilitation, & Agility Seminars. Frans is from the Netherlands and is considered one of the top sports scientists in the world. His colleagues, John Pryor and Leigh Egger from Australia, did a great job managing the hands-on application of this spectacular 4-day event.

Bill ParisiFounder of Parisi Speed School

This was an outstanding seminar. The lectures either hit on topics I wanted to learn more about or stimulated new thoughts. The practical was unbelievable. John Pryor and Leigh Egger did a remarkable job of taking the science and making it practical.
