I just returned from one of the best courses I ever took. It is a continuation of the MELT curriculum and introduces MELT strength techniques to my toolbox. MELT is very much a technique 'from the inside out', and the MELT Strength exercises are all about foot, hip and shoulder girdle stability.
As a trainer, I have paid attention to the question of stability all along. On a personal level, after surgeries on each shoulder for impingement and a frozen shoulder on top, I have a vested interest in that subject and have in the past sought help from physical therapists as I noticed that things were just not as rehabilitated as I thought they should be. With enough determination, I had re-gained remarkable range of motion but was relying on adhesions and scar tissue to add extra 'stability'. Having said all that: I thought I knew all the shoulder exercises that there are, and I was corrected by the MELT Strength curriculum. It will help me personally, and I sincerely hope that my clients and students will benefit from the knowledge I have acquired.
And to change the subject: I even had time to see a show while in New York. I picked 'La Cage aux Folles' and was in stitches laughing.
