Morning Session (8:30am-10:30am) : Dealing with Muscular Imbalances Before They Become Injuries
Location: FUZE Studio
If you have worked with a personal trainer, you know that form is very important to prevent injury. However, you may not know that even with excellent form, there are certain muscles that are often neglected in our training and our everyday lives. Without special attention, these imbalances can often lead to injury. In this unique workshop, strength coach and registered massage therapist Tyson LaRone will teach you about these hidden gems for the shoulders, lower back, knees, wrists, and more, as well as how to train them in order to stay happy, healthy, and injury free!
Afternoon session (2:00pm-4:00pm): Introduction to Strongman Training
Location: 3/F Strength and Conditioning Area
This packed workshop is all about training for real life! Basic gym exercises are great for overall fitness, but training on machines will always feel very different than helping your friend move a heavy couch up the stairs. Classic strongman movements are an excellent way to build functional strength, hit those "in-between" muscles, and keep your workouts fun and interesting! Coach Tyson LaRone will cover proper techniques for a wide range of exercises, such as the Farmer Walk, Side Press, Plow Lift, Anyhow, and many more!
