A Day in the GYM with Paul CHEK: What you Don't Know about Weight Lifting CAN Hurt You! - SYDNEY
1 day workshop
Paul will dispel common gym myths concerning lifting techniques and show correct form, based upon functional anatomy, biomechanics and kinesiology. You will understand how and why exercises are to be performed correctly and the common injuries that can result from incorrect technique.
You will learn the importance of correct posture during weight training and techniques for assessing and re-establishing good posture. Paul will explain the Primal Pattern movement system and how exercises can be classified using this system. Using demonstration and practical drills, you will learn about the elements of movement science and how they are applied to resistance training, including dynamics, technique, tempo, space, listening, rhythm and groove.
