Docent: dr Merv Travers (Australia)
This 2-day course teaches physiotherapists fundamental skills in prescribing gym-based strength exercise programmes. A mixture of practical and theory sessions combine to give physiotherapists the confidence and competence to deliver effective rehabilitation, injury prevention and general strength programmes. Based on the most up to date research and practice, participants will learn how to effectively prescribe key lower limb strength exercises to their patients, how to match the intensity of the exercise to the capacity of the individual and how to create structured and progressive programmes. The key take home messages can be readily applied to clinical practice in a variety of settings.
-A wide repertoire of lower-limb strength exercises: Learn to execute and prescribe a broad range of exercises and the qualities they train
–Programme design: Develop practical skills in programme design and implementation based on contemporary understanding of strength training parameters (intensity, volume, rest, frequency, decay)
–Getting the intensity right: Learn multiple methods for matching the intensity of an exercise to the capacity of the individual with an understanding of when to use the different methods
–Injury prevention: Gain contemporary knowledge in injury prevention through exercise
–Training interference: Understand how to plan endurance and strength training sessions to maximise strength outcomes
