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.If antagonistic muscles (medial gastrocnemius, anterior tibialis, and posterior tibialis) are weak, they may be unable to ... dynamic movement assessments, goniometric (range of motion) measurements, and manual muscle testing (for thoseanbsp;...
