Functional Stability Training for the Upper Body takes a hard look at the upper extremity and how to most effectively optimize function. By addressing alignment, strength, mobility, and dynamic motor control, you can maximize your rehabilitation and training programs to reach optimal performance.

FST for the Upper Body is a new program from Mike Reinold and Eric Cressey. FST for the Upper Body integrates the concepts learned from FST for the Core and FST for the Lower Body, and serves as the sequel to their previous educational program, Optimal Shoulder Performance. FST for the Upper Body is perfect as a stand alone program, but also builds off Optimal Shoulder Performance to help take your knowledge to the next level.

Proper function of the upper extremities is complicated and requires the arm to work in conjunction with the scapula, thorax, cervical spine, and core to provide mobility, strength, and power to the entire body. Any deficits in stability throughout the body’s kinetic chain can lead to injury, dysfunction, and a decrease in performance in the upper body. FST for the Upper Body aims to help formulate rehabilitation and training programs designed to optimize how the upper body functions.

The FST for the Upper Body program can be applied to rehabilitation, injury prevention, and performance enhancement programs.

For the rehabilitation specialist, the information will help you restore functional activities faster. For the fitness and performance specialists, the information will help you achieve new progress with your clients to maximize functional and athletic potential. For the fitness enthusiast, the information will help you gain control of your upper body, maximize functional movement, and reduce wear and tear due to faulty movement patterns.

Here is What You Will Learn
The FST for the Upper Body is available as a completely online educational program, as well as a DVD. The program is several hours of video of Mike and Eric during lecture and hands-on lab sessions teaching the FST for the Upper Body program. Topics include:
