Are you a fitness trainer? Do you find it hard to get your clients through fitness plateaus? Is injuries part of the problem for your clients? Well, one solution claims to be the program of Muscle Imbalances Revealed. In this article, we will investigate this program to find out if it is for you.
How Did MIR Start?
Muscle Imbalances Revealed (MIR) is the brainchild of Rick Kaselj who is a Kinesiologist and personal trainer. He realized that his efforts to keep his clients fit were not achieving the required results fast enough. Even though he was training them appropriately in the three basic techniques of exercise namely strength training, cardiovascular techniques and flexibility exercises, injuries and plateaus were still happening.
Rick concluded that the one thing he was leaving out was the muscle imbalances aspect. Based on what he learned, corrective exercise was important in enhancing mobility and preventing injuries, which would occur because of the body’s need to compensate for imbalanced routines. He also wanted to teach others what he had learned in a way that was affordable and accessible to all, regardless of the location.
What is it?
Rick and five other fitness professionals came up with the MIR program with a view of helping fitness trainers like him, to enable their clients to avoid injuries, overcome them, and bust through their fitness plateaus.
The program consists of videos, ebooks, and webinars which you can download to your computer, Mac iPod or iPad.
Features of The Program
Pelvis and Hips
One of the things that the MIR program teaches is the importance of the pelvis and hips in your fitness. You will learn why fitness trainers tend to overlook these areas of the body when it comes to exercises and how not to do the same. You will also learn about the roles of hips and pelvis in overcoming injuries and getting through fitness plateaus.
Rick claims that mobility is affected by muscle imbalances. His program, therefore, deals with the issue of mobility in detail. You will learn through the program about mobility enhancing exercises, who should be doing them and when as well as how to assess your clients for mobility issues.
