Workshop Info

Workshop 1:

Recommended Pre-requisites: None

This first session will introduce you to some information about me, my philosophy, and why I think Sports Massage and Biomechanics compliment each other so well.  Some content about the importance and benefits of sports massage will be covered.  The main focus of the session (and indeed the series) will be to introduce you to and raise awareness of the field of Biomechanics, what it is, why it is important, and what I feel are the consequences of it commonly being the 'missing link', whereby it is often substituted for 'quick fixes'.  The Biomechanics will be explored in the context of day-to-day health, and in particular in that of a sporting context, where it can be used to reduce injury and improve performance efficiency.  The practical videos will then take this knowledge further to give you some ideas about how you can start to improve your own Biomechanical alignment, by strengthening key areas of weakness in the body.

Workshop 2:

Recommended Pre-requisites: Workshop 1

Workshop 2 will build upon the knowledge learnt in workshop 1, by dedicating a large focus to skill development, including a section on exploring what the correct running technique is.  Furthermore, some key biomechanical structures will be explored, and how these may affect other areas, along with some advice to ensure optimum maintenance of these structures.  The practical will again build upon what came before by adding some power to the strength, and introducing viewers to some skill development work.  Finally, some example session plans (for beginners and more experienced athletes) will be given to help you to apply the workshop content into your everyday training practice. 

Workshop 3:

Recommended Pre-requisites: Workshops 1 & 2

This conclusion to the series will start to bring together everything that has been learnt in the series so far, and for this reason, is perhaps the most useful in terms of what you can take away from it.  Largely practical based, this session will advance upon the basic level of skill development first introduced in workshop 2, with the aim of now being able to achieve a noticeable improvement in running technique.  Finally, there will also be a session covering some important theory points not covered by workshops 1 and 2.
