Essentials of Corrective Exercise TrainingAuthor: National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM)
NASM Essentials of Corrective Exercise Training, Second Edition introduces the health and fitness professional to NASM’s proprietary Corrective Exercise Continuum, a simple yet highly effective four-phase process professionals can use with their clients and athletes to optimize movement quality and increase resistance to injury. The professional will be equipped to asses, identify, and correct common movement compensations.
In addition to a detailed assessment process, this text contains a multitude of corrective exercises in the categories of self-myofascial techniques, stretching techniques, isolated strength training, and integrated dynamic movements. These techniques, along with specific corrective exercise strategies for each segment of the kinetic chain, make this text the premier resource for learning and applying NASM’s systematic approach to corrective exercise training.
This text is a recommended resource for the NASM Corrective Exercise Specialization (CES) course.
