Introduction To Movement Training With The ViPR: What You are Missing in Your Program Design
by Michol Dalcourt, MS
ViPR bridges the gap between movement and strength training. It combines full-body movement with load, enhancing the vitality, performance and reconditioning goals of clients and athletes. ViPR introduces a new concept in fitness and sports conditioning – loaded movement training.

Visceral Restrictions – A Missing Link in Articular Mobility Dysfunctions
by Ian McCarthy, MS, CSCS
Viscera, and their fascial or ligamentous attachments affect the musculoskeletal system, including movement. Its dysfunction can result in a cascade of effects for which the body has to compensate eventually causing functional and structural problems. Visceral manipulation can resolve these limitations. The performance coach needs to be aware of these visceral dysfunctions.

The specific topic will be on program design to prepare the athlete for power training. During this presentation, you will see how, when and where in the models, the use of power training fits into the periodization continuum.

The Internal Model of Learning – Complementary Theory of Motor Control
by Daehan Kim, MS, CSCS
