Are you a personal trainer, strength coach or health care practitioner?

If so, it's certain that you work with people that have banged up knees or a cranky low back. It is time to learn the best coaching and programming strategies to help your clients fix those problems and develop high-performance muscle and power.

Professor Chris Powers and Dr. Chad Waterbury will be teaching an evidence-based course that covers the latest strategies for developing strength and power in key muscle groups within the lower extremity and trunk.

The information you'll learn will apply to both athletic and general populations. Emphasis will be placed on exercise prescription and progression to optimize lower extremity and trunk function. Key concepts will be reinforced with practical lab experiences at the world-renowned Movement Performance Institute.
