The Revolution

Thank you so much for attending The Revolution, and giving us your time and attention.

There was a crap ton of information presented this weekend, and it can be a lot to digest. Below, I have a list of my references, some videos on how to perform the exercises in my presentation, and some supportive material.

If you’d like to increase your ability to apply the material, you can check out some of my other seminars here, or below the supportive material.

Lower Thorax Variability

Pelvic Variability

Exhaled spine and wide infrasternal angle

Inhaled spine and narrow infrasternal angle

System Variability (aka move the piston)

This move is great for unilateral hip extension.

And a progression in unilateral hip extension, as the base of support is smaller

This move is great to teach inhaled spine mechanics

This move is my baseline for teaching people how to squat

Human Matrix: The seminar that will help expand your ability to maximize the movement capabilities of your clients

Do you…

Have patients who hurt multiple areas and are unsure where to start?

Have training clients who can’t perform the exercises you want to despite extensive coaching?

Want to maximize your client’s movement capabilities better than ever before?

Want to know why incorporating breathing into your skill set is exceedingly important?

Then welcome to Human Matrix: The Code for Maximizing Health and Performance. A course where you will develop a thorough understanding of how to systemically view movement, speed up your warmup time by choosing exercises that precisely attack movement limitations, and coach exercises to perfection to enhance your client and patient goals.

A huge turnout from the first seminar. This is how you go from fam to OG with your clients.

By entering the Matrix and affecting movement systemically, building up your client’s movement repertoire from the ground up better than ever before.

In a collaborative environment filled with practical application

Most continuing education courses out there focus either on teaching all theory and no practical application, or teach you a technique without a why or when.

Human Matrix is different, in the sense that we strive to give a perfect balance of theoretical understanding and practical application. You will leave with not only a better knowledge base, but as a better coach or practitioner.

You will change what you do on Monday! And if you don’t believe me, believe the attendees!

What you’ll learn when you Enter the Human Matrix

  • How to build a sound movement foundation to increase the exercise variations your clients and patients will be able to do.
  • How to assess your client’s movement capabilities to make precise decisions for improving pain and movement quality.
  • How to normalize range of motion of the entire body to both reduce pain and improve how your clients move with fewer exercises than you have ever needed before.
  • How to effectively coach squatting, deadlifting, pushing, pulling, and more to build the fitness and resiliency of your clients.

Currently, our seminar does not offer official CEUs at this time. However, if you are an athletic trainer/ATC, there are provisions within your practice act that allow you to attain CEUs for this seminar. Read below, per Lori Brinkman.

The BOC Certification Maintenance requirements uses this statement:

“All CE programs/activities described for each category must be intended for an audience of credentialed healthcare and/or wellness providers (i.e., ATs, PTs, RNs, PAs, PTAs, MDs, DOs, CPTs) and the content must be at least entry level and pertain to the domains identified in the Practice Analysis, 7th Edition.”
If audited, you’ll need to provide verification of attendance that includes contact hours and a copy of the event program that includes a description and objectives.
