How do we stretch? Is foam rolling effective? What is the best method to increase our functional range of motion? Experience science-based flexibility and mobility through our transformative LONG & STRONG (L&S) courses. Learn effective stretching and foam rolling techniques, optimising your functional range. Based on a neuro-fascia-muscular approach to movement, our L&S courses prepare you to balance flexibility, stability, and strength, guarding against injuries and overuse.
You will learn to integrate functional flexibility into your warm up, conditioning, and cooldowns – tailored for diverse abilities and group exercises. Begin with our training sequences and foundational techniques in L&S_1 to implement this approach straight away in your existing training – or dive deeper into the physiology of functional flexibility and advanced coaching practices in L&S_2 and L&S_3. Here, we focus on myofascial tissues, biomechanics, and neurological responses to training functional flexibility for all levels, skills, and groups.
L&S_1 | Flexibility Training Foundations (eLearning)
Explore a safe and effective approach to flexibility training using a myofascial perspective. Learn the basic techniques and approaches to stretching and myofascial release, with skills & sports training applications.
L&S_2 | Functional Anatomy & Flexibility (eLearning)
An immersion into functional anatomy and flexibility training methodologies. Learn a holistic science approach that bridges traditional biomechanics and exercise physiology with new research emerging in the active role of our connective tissues (fascia) in the area of musculoskeletal and neurosciences.
L&S_3 | Functional Flexibility Specialisation Certificate (Blended Learning)
Learn to put the BBS Training Method™ into action when coaching flexibility in sports and fitness. Using the LONG & STRONG Sequences, you will learn to use safe and effective stretching methods that suit your specific teaching style and skill set.
