COURSE DESCRIPTION:  A suspension-based exercise program can be one of the most effective ways to help your clients, athletes or patients achieve more.  Developed by Physical Therapists, Redcord takes suspension exercise to a new level with over 20 years of science supporting its concepts and applications in the areas of kinetic-chain assessment and corrective exercise.  In this introductory course, you will learn the basics about Redcord equipment and ways to start implementing suspension exercise into your training routine for people of all ages and ability levels.  Upon completion of this course, you will have a thorough understanding of how to apply functional anatomy and biomechanical principles to suspension-based exercise programs, as well as how to select exercises and manipulate acute variables to achieve specific neuromuscular adaptations.  This course provides you with a foundation of key scientific principles discussed in more depth in subsequent Redcord courses.

Topics Covered:
•  Functional anatomy and myofascial lines
•  Instruction on use of Redcord equipment 
•  Suspension-based exercises on the Redcord 
•  Grading principles for regressing/progressing exercises
•  Theory on neuromuscular control, core strength, muscle stability and functional-enhancing exercise


Every Redcord course is substantiated by more than 20 years of scientific research and practical experience documenting the effects of suspension-based exercises on the well-being of individuals, and on the recovery from injuries and health conditions. All exercises and applications are currently used by medical and fitness professionals to facilitate rehabilitation, prevent injuries and enhance performance.
