Corrective Exercise Strategies is the second CPD in the CORE 4 series of courses. The importance of being able to understand and identify muscle imbalance and movement dysfunction precedes the need to be able to develop clear corrective exercise strategies to rectify these issues. The time constraints of Personal Training sessions mean that being able to maximise the effectiveness of each session is essential. What sets the LFE Corrective Exercise Strategies apart from other similar CPDs is the level of integration of these strategies into the programming of PT sessions.
This 16 Hour CPD will provide you with proven strategies to be able to correct muscle imbalance and movement dysfunction with a wide variety of postural and movement dysfunctions.
- Science of Stretching, Mobilisation, Activation & Motor Control
- Ankle, Knee, Hip, Thoracic Spine and Shoulder Protocols
- Integrating Corrective Exercise Strategies into PT Sessions
Entry Requirements/Pre Requisites

It is imperative that candidates have an understanding of movement screens and movement screen protocols and muscle testing prior to undertaking this course. We recommend having attended the first CPD in our CORE 4 series – Movement Screening and Muscle Imbalance, but sufficient prior learning and ability to demonstrate understanding of these screens is sufficient.
This 16 Hour CPD is delivered over 2 consecutive days, each consisting of 8 hours of scientific rationale and practical teaching of Corrective Exercise Strategies. The course is largely practical and candidates should be prepared to partake in practical work each day.
