The CHEK Approach to the Lower Limb

  • Sale
  • Regular price $299.00 USD

This all-new CHEK Lower Limb Course will lead you through many of the most common lower limb injuries, how to screen for them, how to identify etiological contributions and how to develop highly effective rehabilitation and conditioning strategies, based on core CHEK principles.

Presented by Matthew Wallden - Includes manual, streaming videos and test


The lower limb is, for the most part – and the majority of our lives - our only point of contact with planet Earth.  In sports and performance, as well as activities of daily living, the lower limb is the point from which the majority of power generation emanates.  It should come as little surprise, then, that the preponderance of injuries in sports occur in the lower limb; and that sporting success or failure is often determined by the function of the lower limb.

As literal outgrowths of the lumbar spine, the legs are both expressions of the lumbo-pelvic region; and are its underpinnings.  As such, to understand the function of the legs, it is critical to understand how they integrate, and function interdependently, with the core.

In the Lower Limb Correspondence Course, we teach you:

  • About the most common sports injuries which impact lower limb function
  • How to apply clinical modelling to understand the function of the lower limbs
  • Key principles in rehabilitation of lower limb injury
  • Why lower limb performance isn’t just about the lower limb
  • How the Middle-Crossed Syndrome affects lower limb power production
  • New understandings of sling systems and spinal health on lower limb function

The lower limbs are much more than a pair of legs; they are both responsive to, and drivers of whole-body health and function.  This uniquely insightful exploration into our foundations will leave you with a deeper understanding and a greater confidence and competence in helping your clients to realise their potential in all aspects of sporting and performance endeavour.

Everything I Needed And More

i've always been interesting in this type of lifestyle, well just health and fitness in general, also help from following those on instagram that embody a similar style, living this kind of way for the last 2 years. i thought i knew a lot, but this course has just sparked a fire under me, the content and structure that this course has delivered has gone beyond my expectations and absorbs into my brain like a sponge. I thought i knew a lot but boyy was i wrong. This course is just the tip of the iceberg and im looking forward to HLC level 2. if you're really looking to up your knowledge and wisdom with Holistic Lifestyle, or even looking to get into the game, this is definitely the place to be, and to be taught by IMO the godfather of health and movement is an experience worth having. Don't go cheap on your body, and don't go cheap on a qualification either... Much love to Paul and the team, would love to get in touch some time :)

HLC 1 online - great!

A very unique course. Representation was clear and on-point. I dont know if finding clients for this could be a problem in my country, I'll see about that.

Scientific Back training

Great course and other prerequisite for IMS1! Paul in this course shows his holistic approach to back pain. He explains how its not only about exercise but how important are breathing, mastication, visual and vestibular system and many other things. Except that he shows you a lot of his assesment techniques and a a lot of exercises from rehabilitation exercises to basic lifts like a squat or deadlift.

David Emsden

Very clear and well structured course. A thorough explanation that links through to practical applications that can be utilised with clients.

Program Design 2nd edition

In my opinion this is the best of three prerequisites for IMS 1. No matter if you are beginner trainer or if I you have already gained some experience in the field I believe you will get some enriching knowledge for you. Paul explains here some basic professional terms and gives you detailed description a using of tempo, rest period, loading, periodization and much more.
