Welcome to 2020, the rise of the adult-onset extreme athletes and fitness enthusiasts. When you see adult athletes wanting to return to extreme training, how prepared do you feel in selecting assessments, and then bridging the program design gap for a progressive return to play? This course answers these questions, beginning with the variables that define today’s popular extreme programs, to identifying and measuring the physiological demands, considering your patient’s age-related changes, and then offering an evidence-based algorithm to help your patients progressively return to play.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Differentiate the defining variables for popular extreme conditioning programs
  2. Identify the anatomical and physiological requirements for full participation in these programs
  3. Describe the injury prevalence for adults engaging in these training regimens
  4. Describe the age-related physiological changes that influence participation safety
  5. Identify assessments for the key components of participation
  6. Construct a return to play progressive conditioning outline to bridge the gap between physical therapy and extreme conditioning program demands
