Leveraging your current understanding of Human Movement Science, CEx, clinical experience, and

the demands of this subject’s activites, please address and include all of the following in your

Assignment Submission:

Correlation between the identified impairments and the Left side low back pain, Right side groin

strain, and right side knee pain

Primary sub­system impairment relating to this case and why

In an organized fashion and using the provided templates, design TWO CEx/ Injury Reduction

Programs that address this subject’s impairments as identified during the kinetic chain assessment and

that adhere to the scientific principles/ structure of the CEx system:

One Long Program, that will take no more than 60 minutes to complete to be performed 2­3 days per week

Be Creative Here…

At the end of your corrective routine ­­and as part of your integration step­­ include a few exercises

that would encompass a total body integrated strength training program appropriate for this athlete

and that will complement/reinforce the goal of correcting her LPHC impairments. Here is a guide to

help you organize this section. You do not have to include an exercise for each body part/ area if you

feel it is inappropriate; however, in your summary section you must explain why you did not include

an exercise for a certain area:

Total body exercise

Back exercise

Chest exercise

Shoulder exercise

Leg exercise

One Short Program that can be used as a warm­up prior to triathlon training workouts on the bike, in

the pool, or pounding the pavement that will take no more than 15 minutes to complete. Take

equipment type/availability into consideration as well when designing this program.

Your Programs must contain the following elements and meet the following criteria:

Inhibition Techniques (list specific exercises/ techniques)

Lengthening Techniques (list specific exercises/ techniques)

Activation Techniques (list the specific exercises you’d use, not just the muscle names)

Integration Techniques (list the specific exercises)

List acute variables for each technique/ exercise

If you include exercises in your program that are unique to your environment and have names that I

may not recognize, please explain what areas/ muscles the exercise is designed to target.

Provide a detailed summary for each program with clinical and/ or scientific rationales that justify

your specific exercise technique selections, i.e.:

Why did you choose the specific techniques/ exercises outlined in your program?

What compensations do they address?

What tissues/ muscles/ subsystems do they target?

How does each technique you selected benefit our subject specifically, given her impairments and
