Process Behind Exercise Selection for the Knee

How do you go about selecting which exercises to program for your clients? 

With so many exercises to select from, what process do you use to ensure best results? 
Having clear processes to follow, results in exercise choices that we are confident in, and can justify. It leads to the best outcomes for our clients. 
In this course we look at the process behind exercise selection specifically in regards to the knee.

We will address:
● knee anatomy and address knee stability and the multiaxial movements of the joint
● force transfer and power in the knee, and how the knee works with the knee, hip and ankle to make up the lower kinematic chain
● common knee dysfunctions and related clinical considerations for exercise selection
● the training needs of athletes and other populations
● the role of the knee in lower body exercises
● breaking exercises down into muscles and movements and from here build programs to address case studies.

Learning outcomes:
● Understand the role of the knee in movement, stability and power
● Review clinical considerations in selecting an appropriate program for your client
● Identify which muscles and movements you will focus on with your client
● Break down knee exercises into muscles and movements
● Address client case studies by selecting appropriate exercises and justifying your choice
