The Nuts and Bolts of Corrective Exercise with Eric Cressey

The Nuts and Bolts of Corrective Exercise with Eric Cressey

Corrective exercise strategy is an important part of any strength and conditioning program. It’s used to identify and correct movement patterns that are not aligned with your goals. Whether you’re trying to get bigger, faster, or stronger, corrective exercise plays a vital role in improving performance. The word “corrective” may make it sound like this type of training is only for people who need fixing. In reality, however, everyone can benefit from it. That’s because no matter how strong or fit you are, there’s always some room for improvement, and even the most well-conditioned athletes can have suboptimal movement patterns from time to time.

Why is Corrective Exercise Important?

By strengthening weak areas and improving your movement patterns, you can help avoid injury and ensure your training is as practical as possible. This can be especially important as you get older and your risk of injury increases. On top of that, correcting an issue may make you feel better and more confident in your movements. This can lead to an improved outlook and better mental health.

How to Incorporate Corrective Exercises Into Your Program

Corrective exercise strategy can be performed independently, as part of a warm-up, or as a cool-down. It can also be integrated into a strength training program before or after your strength exercises. Depending on the issue you’re trying to address, you may need to perform a corrective exercise several times a week. It’s also important to remember that these exercises are not as challenging as your strength training. Do not sacrifice good form in an attempt to lift more weight. It’s better to perform a few sets with proper form than many with improper ones.

This will be my fifth time hosting the Fitness & Rehab Conference. With it being the fifth, I wanted to make it bigger than any others, so I went out looking for a big name to match the event. Incredibly, it has made it to the big 5.

I am so excited to announce Eric Cressey as the headliner of the 2010 Fitness & Rehab Conference.

I didn’t want him just to come from Boston to talk for 90 and leave. If he is, I wanted him to speak for 14 hours so we all could have all of our questions answered by Eric and learn all we could learn from him.
