Fascia science based principles for sports and movement therapies

by Robert Schleip PhD (Univ. of Ulm, Germany)

Practical applications from connective tissue research - for the fields of sports, yoga, Pilates, martial arts, dance and other movement disciplines.

dancegirlIn sports education the emphasis has mostly been on the training of muscles, cardiovascular fitness and coordination. However, most of the exercise- and fitness-related injuries occur in muscular connective tissues which are loaded beyond their prepared capacity. Recent advances in the newly emerging field of international fascia research show that fascial dynamics play essential roles in muscular force transmission. The body-wide fascial network can also be seen as our most important organ for proprioception or embodiment. During tensional loading fascial tissues experience significant hydration changes which affect their viscoelastic properties and recovery rates.

This lecture overview will cover the following topics

- Slings & Springs: myofascial chains as elastic springs; factors influencing their kinetic storage capacity

- Connective tissue stretching: which protocol stimulates which intra- or extra-muscular tissue elements?

- Optimal pre-tension and preparatory counter-movement

- Hydration and dehydration dynamics: how to rejuvenate an old sponge?

- Loading variations and recovery times

- Required loading rates for a fascial strength training vs. muscular training

- How to train for a resilient, strong and elastic fascial body?

 

RSRobert Schleip PhD is director of the Fascia Research Group of Ulm University, Germany. He is also Research Director of the European Rolfing Association, and author/editor of numerous publications in the field of fascia research. He is a certified Rolfing instructor, Feldenkrais teacher and German naturopath. His research work on fascia was honored by the Vladimir Janda Award for Musculoskeletal Medicine.

 

This lecture serves as an introduction to a 2 day workshop on 'Fascial Fitness', which will include practical examples and instruction. However the lecture can be booked just by itself.  Provided that there are still places available, participants may be able to join the workshop at the end of the lecture (for a then reduced price of $365, instead of the regular workshop fee of $385). However this cannot be guarranteed based on the high chance that the workshop may be filled beforehand.
