Human mechanics is a big time interest for Twice as Fit. Movement observation allows the exercise professional to understand what muscles and joints are doing during movement. If we understand what muscles and joints are doing during exercise, we can create specific exercise programs designed for our client’s goals. Our education has been focused on Human Mechanics so we know exactly what the body needs to do during exercise/sport/ADL’s.
If Mike wants to work on Golf, we have to understand what goes into the golf swing, how mike is currently swinging a golf club, and do the two different swings match up. Through movement observation, we focus on the strengths of his swing, and also the weaknesses in his swing. Building upon Mike’s good mechanics, we feather in exercises that help with his weaknesses, which helps bridge the gap between his strengths and weaknesses. A weakness becoming a strength helps propel our strengths and our golf game!
