Description

This class will look at the different parts of the kinetic chain that affect the "core," meaning the trunk and hip. 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. It will also explore ways to use exercise equipment, including the Swiss ball, to strengthen the core.

Learning Goals

Upon completion of this class, you should be able to:

  • Differentiate how various open and closed kinetice chain exercises affect the structures of the trunk
  • Identify core strengthening exercises and how they can be modified to activate specific muscles
Behavioral Objectives

Unit 01- Rationale for Core Strengthening:

1.  Upon completion of the program, the participant will be able to explain 3 pathological conditions in the pelvis or LE that can stem an athlete with poor core strength/stability.

Unit 02- Swiss Ball Training:

2.  Upon completion of the program, the participant will be able to incorporate 4 therapeutic exercises on the Swiss Ball that will engage the posterior kinetic chain for an athlete who is participating in a core strengthening and injury prevention program.

3.  Upon completion of the program, the participant will be able to develop a core- strengthening program of 6 exercises for the high level competitive athlete incorporating the use of a Swiss ball, a cable, a kettle ball and plyometrics.

4.  Upon completion of the program, the participant will be able to explain 2 benefits/advantages of performing Swiss ball strengthening exercises versus the traditional core stabilization exercises for the athlete participating in a core strength program.

5.  Upon completion of the program, the participant will be able to incorporate 3, Swiss ball exercises specific to the external oblique muscles in the core- conditioning program of an athlete.

Unit 3- Non-Traditional Core Exercises:

6.  Upon completion of the program, the participant will be able to defend 1 benefit and 1 disadvantage of a non-traditional core strengthening exercise for an athlete in a conditioning program.

Unit 4- Beginning, Intermediate, & Advanced Core Strengthening Exercises:

7.  Upon completion of the program, the participant will be able to incorporate a 2-step progression of a plyometric drill, for core stabilization in the exercise program of an athlete.
