THIS IS THE FORTH WORKSHOP OF A 4-PART TRAINING SERIES BEST DONE AS A SET
However, if you can't attend the full series, there is plenty to learn from taking one or more workshops on an individual basis.
Stability is often mentioned and seldom understood beyond the idea of crude 'bracing'. It is a much more nuanced skill. It requires specific training approaches beyond resistance training and yields indispensable rewards once nurtured. It is arguably the most foundational skill upon which strength and mobility are built.
In this workshop, you will learn the difference between balance and stability and delve into the world of neurological training. You will learn how poor stability may be what is really limiting your strength and mobility and how to translate those often boring and tedious resistance exercises into true stability training. Not only will your joints love you for it, but you will also likely become more proficient at your craft while at the same time reducing the likelihood of injury.
Workshop emphasis is on refining functional skills and training safely. And with a focus on intelligent training these workshops will benefit you in ways you didn't expect.
