About the weekend intensive

Course Description:

This course will provide an evidenced-based discussion and review of strength and conditioning principles and practices as they are applied to rehabilitation settings. It will present frameworks for incorporating strength assessment and prescription into daily physical therapy practice with a focus on the transition from therapeutic exercise to exercise training and describe the evidence for long term training adaptations for healthy, recreationally active, and clinical populations. With a primarily practical component, therapists will learn appropriate rationale and techniques for integrating major movement patterns into their therapeutic exercise programs and appropriate coaching methods and cues for assessing and teaching squatting, deadlifting, and pressing patterns (and their regressions/progressions). Finally, select conditioning methods and techniques will be taught and integrated into the programming frameworks.  This course will have an online pre-course component.

Approach:

Exercise prescription is central to rehabilitation practice. However, it is increasingly recognized that traditional therapeutic exercise principles and methodologies are limited for inducing targeted functional changes. Commonly used therapeutic exercise concepts such as ‘exercise as tolerated,’ ‘isolated joint exercise,’ and ‘3 sets of 10’ are largely ineffective for eliciting distinct physiological and functional adaptations over time. This course will provide evidenced-based discussions, present a framework for incorporating exercise assessment and prescription into daily physical therapy practice with a focus on the transition from therapeutic exercise to exercise training, describe the most current literature regarding long term training adaptations for healthy, recreationally active, and clinical populations, and provide practical opportunities for the use of targeted resistance exercise methodologies.

Appropriate Dress:

Lab attire that allows for the ability to perform lifting movements of the extremities and trunk.

COVID-19:

Participants will be required to sign a form, stating they understand and will follow COVID rules as stated below:

  • Two participants per 6-foot long table, seated at opposite ends of the table.
  • The participants at the table will be partners for the entire course.
  • All participants will wear masks and remain masked for the entire course except for socially distanced, planned breaks for fluid consumption.
  • Participants will be asked to sanitize their hands frequently; beginning of the course, all breaks and lunch.
  • Tables/used surfaces will be sanitized at the beginning, lunch, and the end of the day.
  • Participants will eat lunch off campus or outside of the teaching course room.
  • Participants may bring their own water/beverage in individual containers and asked to drink only during breaks when the group can disperse further.

Participants need to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and provide proof of vaccination before attending the course.

Bellin College will provide hand sanitizer.

Objectives:

Upon completing this course, you’ll be able to:

  1. Recognize the principles of specificity, individualization, progressive overload, and periodization/structure for long-term strength development.
  2. Recall clinical resistance methodology, prescription and periodization priniciples.
  3. Perform a “function first” approach when integrating therapeutic exercise with strength and conditioning training.
  4. Perform techniques for integrating major movement patterns into therapeutic exercise programs.

Apply appropriate coaching methods and cues for assessing and teaching squatting, deadlifting, and pressing patterns (and their regressions/progressions).

Contact hours / CCU credits requested:

16 hours

Note: Participants will be responsible for submitting proof of attendance for CEU verification. Bellin College will not be seeking CEU verification for this course.
