AiM - Closed Chain Biomechanics of the Lower Body with Rocky Snyder & Perform Better


This is Module 1 of 4 that make up the "AiM Method"

It will be a full day of discussion and moving. The Movement element of this workshop is the key to the discussions about the theory.

The intention of Module 1 is to introduce you to the foundations of Anatomy in Motion; build on the insight you gained from reading "What The Foot?" by Gary Ward and to put it all together in a format that creates the foundation for further study with Anatomy in Motion.

You will have Rocky Snyder as your teacher for the day and he (with all of his experience) will facilitate this process of beginning to make sense of lower body when upright.

Things change when we are upright and in motion; and it changes by creating organised movement arrangements of your joints and structures which can then help us to make sense of the muscles attached to the areas and the role they play in movement too.

This involves:

Walking through AiM's 5 big rules of motion

Taking a moment to recap the planes of motion.

Getting Familiar with the Foot and the rest of the leg.

Getting clear on their joint motions (inc detailing Pronation and Supination).

Taking note of their interactions and outcomes.

Overlaying muscles to this to start thinking about muscles differently (maybe).

Looking how these interactions help to create "exercises".

Using the AiM wedges to work with the lower body when upright and moving.

By the end of the workshop, we hope that you will have some new insights into the interactions of the lower limb when up right and moving as well as a basic frame work of thinking about it in your particular areas of interest; a new way of thinking and looking at muscles and and how to stimulate them with a different specificity that involves the feet and the use of wedges if needed.


This is a unique 1 day course where the material has been condensed into 1 longer day.
