Using Cerebellar Concepts to Better Individualize Exercise: Challenging the “Little Brain” to Help the Whole Brain

Since every patient or client’s unique combination of experiences and genetics makes them, to some extent, a “sample of one,” intelligent individualization will always be the most effective way to get results in medicine, fitness training, and coaching.
When targeting the brain to reduce pain or improve cognitive or physical performance, then, how can we begin to figure out what stimulus and what dosage will best fit the training and rehabilitative needs of the “sample of one” currently asking you for help?
In this webinar, presenter Mike Golden will discuss:
- The 8 key levels of the nervous system that should be considered when taking a history, running assessments, and creating a training or treatment program
- Quick and easy ways to assess the cerebellum, the dense integrative center at the back and bottom of the brain that houses 80% of the brain’s 100 billion neurons.
- Practical ways for fitness and medical professionals to adjust the cerebellar load during exercise or rehabilitation.
- The importance of immediate reassessment for determining whether a training or therapeutic stimulus had a positive, negative, or insignificant effect.
The webinar will be a combination of lecture and practical application, so active participation is encouraged.
