3. The course will review anatomy at specific joints in how it relates to movement patterns;
4. Participants will gain knowledge for how specific deficits in joint mobility, muscular imbalances/hypertonicity and weakness effect power clean technique and performance;
5. Individuals taking the course will review exercises to help improve deficits at different joints to allow for improved mechanics.
