Advanced Exercise Selection for the Shoulder

In this course we break down the key considerations in exercise prescription for the shoulder. 

We will review the functional anatomy of the shoulder, general principles behind exercise selection and programming, and use case studies to practically address how the role of client differential and diagnostic tests dictate exercise selection and the direction of the program.

Participants will:

Review shoulder muscles and their movements
Understand the shoulder stability and mobility relationship
Review stages of training and FITT-VP principles
Use a process of hypothetico-deductive reasoning to confidently identify nature of shoulder dysfunctions
Understand how the client differential and diagnostic tests affect decision making in relation to the focus of programming, exercise selection and progression.

Working in groups to apply these principles in a practical manner to a variety of case studies, participants will develop a clear process to guide decision making from the client differential to program development, application and progression.
