Corrective Exercise Tips w/ Jim Kielbaso & Nick Tumminello

Nick Tuminello and Jim KielbasoAt the 5th Annual Strength & Conditioning/Athletic Development Conference in Baltimore, MD Jim Kielbaso & Nick Tumminello grabbed a camera (in front of an anatomy chart – very funny) and talked about corrective exercises. Nick liked Jim’s ideas on not jumping the gun on corrective exercises and added plenty of great thoughts.

The conversation revolved around the idea that correctives aren’t always as necessary as some people would like to believe.  Often, the problem is simply that a person has never been taught how to move properly so they have poor mechanics.

For example, if a person has never been taught to raise their knees when running, it may appear as though they have a huge strength deficiency in their hip flexors.  The reality is simply that they need to educate their nervous sytem.

The sound on the video is a little low, so you might need to pump up the volume a little.

    I couldnt agree more. With respect to my team and guys here in China, it wasnt that there was deviations but that they have never done the designated exercises before and just didnt know the proper form, or what to look for when doing the movement. Great video.

    At first i though Corrective exercise a joke? but then i watched the video and from your point of view in this instance I totally agree with where your coming from but i wouldn’t say CE is a joke. I think a new grad or student would benefit from your advice but I’d hope that an experienced SCS or ATC or even PT would not try to rush to a corrective exercise before there was some sort of investigation into why an athlete is not able to perform a movement. Ultimately any CE can be neuromuscular in nature and does not necessarily need to be for strengthening. Good to see you putting stuff out Jim. keep it coming!
