About the Workshop:
High-intensity exercise has been popular for decades. However, people like Jane Fonda, Les Mills, bootcamps, Obstacle Course Racing, and CrossFit have made high-intensity exercise very popular among female exercisers. The USA Weightlifting Federation has seen a significant increase in membership largely in part to CrossFit’s use of Olympic Weightlifting in its exercise programming. With such high-level physical challenges come concerns about how to manage common women’s health problems such as Incontinence, Pelvic Organ Prolapse (associated more with pelvic floor weakness) as well as concerns about exercising during pregnancy, and postpartum issues such as divarication of rectus abdominis, exercising after a Caesarian section, and lifting while breastfeeding.
This course will attempt to address these concerns about high intensity exercise in women, teach participants some of the common loaded movements and how to modify these exercises for different populations.
Theoretical and Practical content will include:
