Core Training

CEU Approved:

  • 0.2 NSCA CEU (Category D)

Course Description:

In this lecture, Dr. Ben Reuter explains the relationship of posture and trunk integrity as it relates to swim performance and provides practical recommendations and demonstrations on how to effectively develop core strength and endurance.

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand the basic concepts of posture
  • To understand a working definition of the “Core”
  • To recognize that core training can be incorporated into an existing training program
  • To learn the importance of precise movements for optimal training

Upper and Lower Functional Anatomy

CEU Approved:

  • 0.2 NSCA CEU (Category D)

Course Description:

In this session, Dr. Ben Reuter provides a general overview of the functional anatomy of the upper and lower extremities.

(NOTE: This is a review and not an “all inclusive” anatomy course – major movements of muscles are included though)

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand the basic descriptions of body segment movement and types of muscle contractions
  • To recognize the major muscles involved with movements of the body segments and the bones that make up the major joints of the body
  • To understand that multiple muscles are responsible for body segment movements; rarely is only a simple muscle activated.

Functional Assessment and Corrective Strategies for Improved Swim Performance

CEU Approved:

  • 0.2 NSCA CEU (Category D)

Course Description:

In this session, Dr. Ben Reuter explains the relationship of posture and swim performance.

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand that training behaviors lead to adaptations; these adaptations can lead to training limitations, movement impairments and/or injuries
  • To understand the importance of intervention to minimize the negative adaptations of training behaviors
  • To recognize the importance of understanding posture and the relationship of posture to training adaptations
