Key Functional Exercises You Should Know DVD

Key Functional Exercises You Should Know DVD
€ 145,50 excl. VAT € 120,25


In this DVD, Gray focuses on the question many trainers and corrective exercise specialists and enthusiasts forget to ask: “Why is this important?” The question shouldn't be if an exercise works; that's the easy answer most everyone already knows. The better questions are “How is it working?” and “Why would each individual need it?”

What exactly is your goal for that exercise? What’s your goal for that person? Is it doing what you think it's doing? Is it doing the same thing for your first client as it's doing for the second?

These are the type of questions Gray proposes—and then answers—in this thought-provoking DVD. He’ll push you think through the deeper levels of how these exercises work and why you'd use one exercise over another for each of your clients.

This is a 3-disc DVD set, clocking in at just under three hours. It was filmed live at Perform Better in Long Beach, California, in August of 2012. All three discs include a PDF of the workshop manual and a PDF of Gray's PowerPoint slides.
