Quick Overview

Presented by: Rafael Escamilla

This class will look at the different parts of the kinetic chain that affect the "core," meaning the trunk and hip and how they affect the risk of ACL injuries.

Description

This class will look at the different parts of the kinetic chain that affect the "core," meaning the trunk and hip and how they affect the risk of ACL injuries. It will review the literature of trunk musculature activation when performing open and closed kinetic chain exercises and how exercises can be modified to address specific muscles.
