ESSEntrics STRENGHTENING exercises
Learn how to effectively use this technique with many familiar and innovative exercises. You will learn ESSENTRICS theories, techniques, objectives and exercises for toning, strengthening and shaping the muscles. You will also learn the science of weight loss, muscle development, body toning & strengthening and anti-aging. In this manual we evaluate different strengthening techniques and discuss the different objectives and benefits of each method.
Certification level: Essentrics Certified Instructor L4
Subject matter: Learn ESSENTRICS strenghtening exercises
ESSENTRICS is a full-body strengthening program that achieves increased flexibility primarily though not exclusively through strength. In order to benefit from increased flexibility the muscles need to be strengthened in a lengthened position. It is a well known fact that any perceived flexibility gained when doing passive flexibility disappears immediately once you begin to move. This is because all movement requires strength and so the muscles revert to a contracted length. However if the muscles are strengthened in a lengthened position, they will remain lengthened when movement recommences.

About Level 4
By following the rules of the ESSENTRICS program, the muscles are developed to become strong, long, lean and slender. The act of moving muscles in the elongated position strengthens them as they are being lengthened, which permanently renders them more flexible and strong. This indirectly leads to pain relief, as the joints are no longer jammed tightly together. This powerful method of strengthening is done equipment-free using the body’s own weight as the force of resistance. Passive stretching may feel good and seem effective while it is taking place, but it does not have a lasting effect on the muscles. Flexibility can only be permanently increased when it is combined simultaneously with strengthening.
In the Level 4 Learning Guide there are sections about using music for strengthening exercises, as well as how to choose music for a complete routine. You will also learn how to create and structure your own Essentrics workout.
The manual offers a minimum of 50 ESSENTRICS toning exercises. The accompanying instructional DVD offers an in-depth breakdown of how to do each exercise, including tips on making corrections for common mistakes made by clients and offering modifications for special circumstances (injuries, disability, etc.)
You will be required to learn the illustrated anatomy from the Level 4 Manual. This may require you to take an Anatomy & Physiology course in order to gain a thorough understanding of the key anatomy involved in the Essentrics exercises. Identify which bones the muscles attach to (not the specific origins) and indicate how many joints the muscles pass through. Teachers will also be expected to apply a deeper understanding of the physiology behind the exercises and techniques and be able to analyze what is happening to each muscle at a cellular level. This knowledge will give the teacher the proper tools required to address client issues with the proper vocabulary and expertise.
Expected time to complete Level 4: Approximately 16 weeks
Examination of Level 4: Examination fee $65
