Complete Hip and Shoulder – Toronto 2017
Assess, Correct, and Train
With Dean Somerset, BSc, CSEP, MES, CSCS
About the Presenter
I’m a personal trainer, author, and international public speaker whose main area of expertise is injury and medical dysfunction management through optimally designed exercise programs. While this is cool, my main calling is making people stronger, fitter, faster, more Kanye-er than they thought possible, even if they’re recovering from major or minor injuries, or while dealing with medical disorders.
My clientele has included clients with post-surgical joint replacement rehabilitation, cardiac rehabilitation & wellness, sports injury post-rehabilitation, neural impairments and spinal cord injuries, cancer patients and even elite runners and fire fighters. Training is easiest once you know where to start, which is why I try to incorporate a lot of different assessment techniques, ranging from orthopedic assessments to the Functional Movement Screen to submaximal and maximal cardio testing to determine VO2 max. Everyone has a raging beast of an athlete inside of them, and deserves to feel what it’s like to push their limits with a safe and effective program.
I’ve managed to teach seminars across North America on topics ranging from Post Rehab for the Personal Trainer to Psychology and Motivation for Optimal Training. Most of my talks focus on using humour and hands-on application to keep people engaged and entertained. This has been shown to be a successful method of having participants retain key information versus just speaking and instructing.
This workshop will go through pertinent anatomical and functional considerations for personal trainers, strength coaches and practitioners when working with general population, athletic and rehabilitation clientele and patients. Specific attention will be paid to overhead motion, scapular mechanics, and thoracic function in the shoulder day, and lumbopelvic rhythm, hip joint range of motion, and the role of core stabilization to hip motion.
Participants will learn hands on assessments for the shoulder and hip, mobility practices and stabilization patterns, as well as how to coach common movements with adaptations to their specific anatomical and mobility considerations determined through the assessments.
