#fridayfun pulling shapes and making running slowly look good!
A sneak peak of some of the movement assesments we use with clients (and on ourselves occasionally). Note: movement assesment never stops, you may need to break a complex movement down to identify specific issues but as a trainer you should know how to analyse movements for a plethora of different reasons.
Whether it's sprinting, squatting or even benching (on occasion). I like to emphasise to athletes the importance of getting into the correct shape or position to optimally produce/transfer force while protecting the body. This ensures you have a strong base to produce force from while protecting and supporting joints, allowing muscles to work as they were designed!
I can't emphasise enough how important this is and the acute (and long term) improvements in power output and movement economy and can be startling if coached properly. While I hope the benefits regarding health and injury prevention are obvious, never train through bad technique or physical limitations you will regret it eventually.
P.s: feel free to pull my movements to bit, nobody is perfect and I appreciate a different view.
