Registration Open for the 1st Annual Cressey Performance Fall Seminar
Do me a favor and mark Sunday, October 28th on your calendar. Write “MUST GO TO THIS” with a bright neon colored highlighter if you have to. Better yet, use glitter paint.
No, it’s not opening weekend of Michael Buble’s new concert tour or the release date of the next chapter in the 50 Shades of Grey hooplah (ladies). And no, it’s not the same weekend as the Victoria Secret wet t-shirt contest or the next Star Wars convention (guys).
As cool as all of those things are (with the exception of the first two), what’s actually going down that weekend is much, much more more awesomer (yes, I just used incorrect grammar). That weekend marks the first of what we hope will be an annual Cressey Performance Fall Seminar.
This event will showcase both the brand new Cressey Performance, as well as the great staff that helped build it, and our outstanding sponsor, New Balance. We want to make this an affordable event for everyone and create a great forum for industry professionals and fitness enthusiasts alike to interact, exchange ideas, and learn.
Here are the presentation topics:
Understanding and Managing Congenital Laxity
Presented by Eric Cressey
In this era of semi-private training, boot camps, and group exercise, it’s not uncommon for coaches and trainers to try to train all athletes and clients the same. This can quickly lead to injury in a population with significant congenital laxity. In this presentation, Eric will teach you how to assess for laxity and safely train with it to improve how people feel and move.
The Food Freakshow: What Will You Be Eating in the 21st Century?
Presented by Brian St. Pierre
Burgers grown from dinosaur DNA? Tomatoes carrying a delicious basil lemon gene? Red meat with the fatty acid profile of an avocado? Science is starting to change the way we look at food. And in the coming years our food will be very, very different. Want to know what you’ll be eating? What your kids will be eating? What your grandkids will be eating? Let Brian untangle the mystery. In this talk he’ll discuss what’s on the horizon for those of us who like to eat, and like to eat healthy. Join him for a fascinating exploration of the future of food – and for useable, practical strategies you can put into action immediately.
“Out with the Old” – A new model for preventing injury and improving performance in the throwing athlete.
Presented by Eric Schoenberg
The system is broken! Injury rates at all levels of baseball are alarming. Despite improvements in research, technology, and sports medicine principles, the numbers continue to rise. Each year, teams work tirelessly and spend millions to recruit, draft, and sign the best talent from all over the world. However, only a small percentage of that money is invested to keep these athletes healthy and allow them to showcase their talent on the field. This presentation will help to debunk some common myths, identify disturbing problems, and provide solutions to help keep athletes on the field and out of the training room.
How “Strong” Does An Athlete Need To Be?
Presented by Gregory Robins
In this presentation, Greg will discuss how various strength qualities contribute to an athlete’s power potential. Each sport requires a slightly different blend of these strength qualities to provide for high-level performance. Learn which qualities athletes need to improve and how to get the job done.
Current Trends in Manual and Manipulative Therapy
Presented by Nathaniel Tiplady
Nate will present a review of Active Release Technique, Graston Technique, Fascial Manipulation, and joint manipulation. He’ll cover what we know, what we don’t know, and present his thoughts and experiences on the best methods to get people pain-free.
Program Design Considerations for the Young Athlete
Presented by Chris Howard
In this presentation, Chris will discuss important considerations one must take into account when designing and implementing programs for young athletes. Topics to be covered are exercise selection and progression, creation of a fun training environment, and the role of the strength coach in educating young athletes. He will stress the fact that young athletes can be trained similarly to adults, but that there are distinctions that need to be made.
How to Get “Fight Club” Abs Deep Squats: Are They Worth It?
Presented by Tony Gentilcore
In this presentation, Tony will highlight research on the squat under various conditions and discuss population-specific considerations one must take into account when programming squat variations. He’ll discuss improving the squat pattern, as well as exercise recommendations for those who should avoid squatting altogether in their programs.
