Carrick Human Performance Program – 501: Strength, Power and Neuro-biomechanics
October 26, 2018 @ 9:00 am - October 28, 2018 @ 6:00 pm$1499 – $1999.00
In this module learn how to develop strength, power and how the brain affects biomechanics.
Imagine having the gift to be able to assess an athlete and know exactly how to unlock more strength and power out of their performance. Better yet, imagine how the game changes when you know what your athlete actually needs, is it strength or power? What if you can see the interplay between neurology and sports biomechanics, being able to create strategies that can often yield instantaneous results for your athlete?
In this module, learn at a Master’s level, strategies to assess an athlete’s current strength and power capability, and then create a customized approach to maximize their potential. Create brain-based applications that increase an athlete’s biomechanical efficiency to yield blazing fast results. Learn from the experience that the research and evidence teaches you and then work in a new paradigm where neurology and biomechanics govern your performance, and you can control it all.
Welcome to 501: Strength, Power and Neuro-Biomechanics. The game is about to change, and with us on your team.. you win!
