NASM Essentials of Corrective Exercise Training introduces the health and fitness professional to NASM's proprietary Corrective Exercise Continuum, a system of training that uses corrective exercise strategies to help improve muscle imbalances and movement efficiency to decrease the risk of injury. This textbook includes several new chapters that were not included in NASM's previous corrective exercise materials, including the rationale for corrective exercise training, assessments of health risk, static postural assessments, range of motion assessments, and strength assessments (manual muscle testing) as well as corrective exercise strategies for the cervical spine, elbow, and wrist. There are more than 100 corrective exercise techniques in the categories of self-myofascial release, static stretching, neuromuscular stretching, isolated strength training, positional isometrics, and integrated dynamic movements included in the text. These, along with corrective exercise strategies for common movement impairments seen in each segment of the body, make this text the premier resource for learning and applying NASM's systematic approach to corrective exercise training.

Bodyweight training is one of the growing global trends in fitness. It's simple enough to explain – using your own body weight to improve your fitness and strength, and yoga and gymnastic practitioners have been doing this for years. But the theory behind it isn't often understood. Kesh Patel contextualises bodyweight training – where did it come from? What is Evolutionary Fitness? and looks at the theory behind it. Understand the basics of biomechanics and you can adapt and improve your bodyweight training programmes and improve your results. So find out about working with gravity, how skills acquisition works, how to develop posture and balance – all based on biomechanical principles. This book is packed with practical, clear and accessible exercise ideas, progressing from fundamental movement patterns to more advanced exercises, along with details of exercise programming - including adaptations for different skill levels, working with groups, and ideas to integrate bodyweight exercises into traditional weight training, circuit and bootcamp classes, to name but a few.
