IKN Performance

IKN Performance is a 1 day 8 hour interactive course that is heavily movement based. It will cover a large number of techniques and exercises that will properly harness the nervous system to improve speed, strength and power, including neural modifiers to make any movement including squat, bench and lunges more stimulatory to the brain.

We will be covering how to make sports performance & training more stimulatory to the brain and nervous system. We will be focusing on movements that will help improve muscle sequencing, force absorption/production, speed, and reaction to environment. After attending this course, you will be able to make any movement and tailor it to stimulate the nervous system. We will be using barbells in this course so it helps to be comfortable in that setting.

This is not a singular approach
Nothing can replace an solid strength training program
everything we cover during this day is meant to supplement to allow to improve results

All the techniques in this course are able to be performed hands off, making it perfect for therapists, coaches, trainers, athletes, or anyone working in the sports performance world.
