ZFA - Functional Anatomy - Upper Limb


Our advanced FAS Workshop builds upon the information from the FAS Online program.

We have combined our Functional Assessment, Activation, and Kinesiology Taping (FAAKT) and Functional Range of Motion (from workshops) to provide trainer with a complete workshop on functional anatomy. Fitness professionals will learn how to identify muscle dysfunction by employing muscle strength testing and muscle length testing. Regions covered will be the following:

  • Shoulder Girdle
  • Glenohumeral
  • Elbow

Once individual muscle dysfunction is identified, participants will then learn how to improve muscle function using tools within the scope of practice of a personal trainer. These include the following:

  • Functional Range of Motion® protocols to improve muscle length
  • Activation exercises to enhance neuromuscular function
  • Kinesiology Taping (Kinesiotaping) applications to enhance muscle function

Upon learning how to identify and correct muscle dysfunction, common exercises will be broken down based on muscle function and rebuilt and improved by addressing and correcting any muscle dysfunction.
