The pelvis is the base of our body’s center. It is a fascinating weight-bearing structure that is important for stability and a strong foundation for our upper and lower limbs.
This course investigates an ‘easy to understand’ model that explains its complexity, anatomical function and muscular relationships.
Beside its anatomical structure, the pelvis is a key component for our posture alignment.
How can you recognize a proper and neutral pelvis alignment? What happens when you tilt your pelvis front, side or back? Which muscles belong to this structure?
A proper alignment is fundamental for achieving optimal function and performance in all levels of sports and daily activities.
In this course, you will focus on a few key muscles, learning how the muscles of the posterior and anterior abdominal walls play synergetic roles in the coordination of movements while, at the same time, stabilizing the skeleton. For example, the iliopsoas, a controversial muscle according to different research findings, is one part of the posterior abdominal muscle. In this course, the muscle anatomy of the iliopsoas will be investigated along with its different actions, paradox and training applications.
Extensive corrective exercise training will help you to bridge your anatomical knowledge with the practical phase of training.
