At the 5th Annual Strength & Conditioning/Athletic Development Conference in Baltimore, MD Jim Kielbaso & Nick Tumminello grabbed a camera (in front of an anatomy chart – very funny) and talked about corrective exercises. Nick liked Jim’s ideas on not jumping the gun on corrective exercises and added plenty of great thoughts.
The conversation revolved around the idea that correctives aren’t always as necessary as some people would like to believe. Often, the problem is simply that a person has never been taught how to move properly so they have poor mechanics.
For example, if a person has never been taught to raise their knees when running, it may appear as though they have a huge strength deficiency in their hip flexors. The reality is simply that they need to educate their nervous sytem.
The sound on the video is a little low, so you might need to pump up the volume a little.
