This course will introduce the concepts of effective exercise dosing, prescription and rationale in the orthopedic and sports setting. Topics covered will include discussion on clinical decision making for utilization of frequency, duration, and intensity/load to achieve a desired stimulus. Discussion will cover patient specific dosing using rate of perceived exertion, reps in reserve, and patient feedback. Although there will be lecture and group discussion, the course will be primarily lab based. We will cover how to assess, teach, cue and coach the squat, deadlift and overhead press. Modifications and progressions for each movement will be covered to address a large patient population. The goal will be to introduce very practical and clinically applicable topics for immediate carry over into clinical rotations and practice.
- Improve understanding of mechanisms of exercise and prescription in regards to practical application of principles for endurance, hypertrophy, strength, and power
- Improve clinical decision making in establishing rational for specific exercise selection and dosage
- Improve understanding and utilization of feedback loops such as reps in reserve and RPE to improve accuracy of dosage in the clinic
- Improve understanding in clinical management of tendinopathy across the spectrum of acute to chronic presentations and basic principles for rehab
- Improved understanding of performance, assessment, coaching, and cueing of fundamental movements utilized in strength training and their regressions to aid in practical application of exercise principles in the clinic
