Modern Exercise Prescription
Early philosophies, current concepts & successful strategies
In this introductory evening workshop Nick will show you why rehabilitation exercise prescription principles from the 1940’s are no longer acceptable. Rehabilitation exercise selection and prescription are simple concepts that we make more complex than necessary. Nick will show you simple evidence based principles that will allow you to produce effective rehabilitation programmes to meet your client’s needs. The concepts can be easily be incorporated into your practice, building upon what you already do well whilst challenging your existing ideas. Nick will show how expanding your ability to design and implement effective exercise prescriptions can improve compliance and rehabilitation outcomes.
Topics covered during the workshop will include:
- The Force Velocity Curve - understand how to 'work the curve' to improve rehabilitation outcomes.
- The Repetition Continuum - learn how to manipulate it to bring about specific adaptations.
- Sequencing - discover how exercise sequence impacts on rehabilitation goals.
- Training Variables - understand how to manipulate key training variables to achieve successful outcomes.
- Exercise Prescription - design evidence based prescriptions that deliver results.
This workshop will be of particular interest to physios, osteos, chiros, sports therapists, sports rehab professionals & strength coaches

We have one thing in common with every athlete and team we work with – shared ambitions. Athletes and teams want success but don’t always know how to achieve it. Every athlete and team should have the opportunity to realise their potential. We understand that it’s not how good you are that is important, it’s how good you want to be. We can’t resist a challenge and we like to make personal bests our business by adding real value to a team or athlete and putting more people into a better place.
We make the complex seem simple and the difficult achievable
Through experience and expertise we profile performances with a fresh set of eyes and combine fundamental training principles with innovative ideas that get the job done, effectively, efficiently and expertly.
