I will be giving two seminars this October at Clay Fitness in New York City. Here is a description of topics along with the dates and times:
Monday 10/4/10 2:30-5:30pm: Maternal Fitness: Safe and Effective Strategies for training the Pregnant and Post Partum Client
Exercise is one of the most beneficial things a pregnant woman can do for her body – provided proper guidelines are followed. This workshop teaches you how to address the biomechanical and physiological changes that occur in the pre and postnatal period, and develop sound training programs tailored to the unique needs of the maternal client. Programming for strength training, cardiovascular exercise and flexibility training is covered in detail, with insight provided on how to modify exercise based on the individual needs of the client. Contraindications to exercise are addressed with respect to each trimester.
Wednesday 10/6/10 11am-2pm: Program Design for the Hypertrophy Client
Muscle development is of primary interest to those who lift weights. This workshop will elucidate the science behind optimizing muscular hypertrophy. It will detail the effects of manipulating intensity, sets, repetitions, and rest intervals on growth, as well as exploring the roles of factors such as exercise modality, training to failure, speed of movement, and recovery. The significance of acute hormonal fluctuations and lactate production as to their effects on increasing protein synthesis will be addressed. Sample routines are offered in the context of a periodized approach to help the practitioner with perfecting program design.
The seminars are part of the “Applying Exercise Through the Lifespan” series hosted by Innovative Wellness and are eligible for CEU credit. Below is the link to register. Hope you can make it!
