Course Description:

Develop your foundation, open new doors and push your programing to higher levels. Bulletproof Summit is a two-day experience with a learn by moving philosophy. This course is designed for health professionals who aim to optimize dynamic movement, strength and speed for clients of all ages. A significant focus will be placed on both the quality and purpose of movement pattern assessment, implementing exercise progressions, and developing performance.

Hours of hands on labs will provide a step by step guide for evaluating each client’s individual movement capacity. You will evaluate the biomechanics, joint contributions and myofascial layers, acquiring a better understanding of performance and health. Targeted progression and regression strategies will be emphasized joint-by-joint, focusing on the shoulder, knee and spine.

Because every client presents with different abilities, all strategies will be applied across the human performance continuum: live, move, perform. Within this model, interventions advance alongside the client’s abilities – from working toward activities of daily living to athletic performance. You will leave with testing protocols, modifiable exercise progressions, and valuable implementation strategies. Register today to experience this comprehensive framework that will result in improved client outcomes.
  1. Identify the biomechanics, joint contributions, myofascial layerings that influence lower quarter performance and health.
  2. Apply baseline for necessary movement quality prior to implementing high level lower quarter fitness.
  3. Implement appropriate mobility interventions for specific limitations for lower quarter.
  4. Utilize appropriate speed, change of direction, and impact progressions for knee performance and health.
  5. Analyze how the ankle and hip affect the knee from a joint by joint approach.
  6. Identify the biomechanics, joint contributions, myofascial layering’s that influence upper quarter performance and health.
  7. Apply baseline assessment for necessary movement quality prior to implementing high level upper quarter fitness.
  8. Implement appropriate exercise progression for the upper quarter along the rehabilitation and performance continuum.
  9. Critique the role of regional interdependence as it pertains to the spine.
  10. Apply assessment for necessary movement quality prior to implementing high level spine fitness.
  11. Assess developmental drills for trunk integrity.
  12. Create progressions toward basic movement patterns of the hip hinge and load/support/carry.
  13. Assess developmental drills for the upper and lower quarters.
  14. Identify situations where the use of a kettlebell will facilitate improved motor control and strength.
  15. Utilize the Hardstyle Kettlebell Basic Patterns including: the arm-bar, the halo, the overhead carry, the single-arm KB press, the get up.
  16. Identify appropriate exercise and mobility implementation via case study exercise.
