Vocational Training No-Risk Abs®
July 2012 in Limoux - France

No-Risk Abs® is a method created by Blandine Calais Germain in 2007, story
built from 25 years of work in the world of anatomy through “Anatomy of Movement®”.

Its principles are detailed in the book «No-Risk Abs®», cialis published in the US at Inner Traditions.

No-Risk Abs® is a whole new way of training your abdominals
made in order to avoid risks on the perineum, the abdominal wall and the intervertebral discs.

This method is based on a program (which can be extended) of 10 courses.

This program is progressive: the first courses are used as an introduction to the corporal bases of the method.
Then, from one course to another, each series of movements becomes more detailed and physical.  

No-Risk abs® has two key characteristics, described below: Alternations and Coordinations.  

Alternations The movements alternate stretching and contraction of the abdominal muscles :
It alternate between the contraction of the different kinds of abdominals It alternates the “strokes”:

Each muscle is respectively requested in a short or long stroke, and it changes constantly.  

These alternations have a significant impact on the mobility of the abdominal sheets, especially :
It supports the circulation it helps avoiding “strangulation” effect resulting from repeated muscular solicitation,
usually met in static mode It supports the mobilization and the slip of the fascias It helps the proprioceptive awakening of the body  

The movements alternate between the skeletal and the visceral mode of the abdominal muscles  

The goal of these alternations is to control permanently the pressure put on the pelvis.  


The movements request alternately the coordination between rectus and transversus abdominal muscles abdominal
and back muscles Abdominal muscles and the different kinds of respiration
(breathing in, breathing out, abdominal respiration, costal respiration)  

Vocational training in the method « No-Risk Abs » July 2012 in Limoux - France      

“No risk abs®” is one of the clusters of the “Anatomic Gesture®” entity,
which itself is defined as the practical part of “Anatomy of Movement®”,
method created by Blandine Calais Germain in 1980.

The professional development is made up of 3 courses of 5 days each In 2012,
they will take place in Limoux (Aude-France) on the dates mentioned below :  

“Discover & Rediscover abdominal muscles”: from 07/01 to 07/05

“No-Risk Abs®, directory”: from 07/06 to 07/10

“No-Risk Abs®, pedagogy”: from 07/11 to 07/16  

WARNING: Participating to the “No-Risks Abs®” courses will require you to meet the following prescribed conditions :
You must have beforehand followed the 2 “Anatomy for movement” courses below
(or be able to justify an equivalent level):

  • “Vertebral column”
  • “Respiratory kinetics” In exceptional cases,

these courses might be followed after the “No-Risk Abs®” training
(In either case, the certificate won’t be delivered unless these 2 courses are achieved)

You must have at least one teaching experience in the field of personal or group therapies

1st course : “Discover & Rediscover abdominal muscles”

(ref 34)
Duration : 5 days (30h)

Description :
Abdominal muscles are some of the most commonly used muscles, but they are still mostly unknown.
This course will, after a thorough study of their anatomy, list the situations where they are recruited,
the risks affiliated, and will make a proposition of key points to watch out for during their training.

This course is mostly based on the “No-Risk Abs®” Book,
written by Blandine Calais Germain. Course’s structure :
Overview of the course Global and detailed anatomy of the four abdominal muscles

The skeletal mode of the abdominals :
Skeletal and articular structure of the trunk.
Description of the main mobilizing systems.
Function of each abdominal on the human rib cage, the pelvis, the vertebral column

The visceral mode of the abdominals :
The 2 chambers of the trunk: abdominal chamber, rib cage chamber
Structure, container, contents

Reinforcement of the abdominals :
In skeletal mode
In visceral mode
Importance of the stroke in the reinforcement Interaction between abdominals
and others parts of the body: abdominals and pelvis. abdominals and hernia abdominals,
narrow waist and flat belly abdominals and post-partum abdominals
and gluteal muscles abdominals and trunk’s posture

2nd course : “No-Risk Abs®, repertoire”

(ref 34B)
Duration: 5 days (30h)

Description :

This course is the sequel to “Discover & Rediscover abdominals”.
In this course, you’ll go deeper into the knowledge of the No-Risk Abs® method with :
sessions of practice where you’ll learn the 8 first sequences of exercises of “No-Risk Abs®” method
a close analysis of the work done, with video sessions

Description of the many details that must be respected for the method to be safe and efficient.
additional content on the risks induced by inadequate abs training Course’s structure: Practice: Learning of the complete list of exercises of the No-Risk Abs® Method Stretched out exercises Stand up exercises The little plane position Learning the importance of respiration in abs training. Theory: anatomical analysis of each exercise pedagogical analysis of each exercise

3rd course : “No-Risk Abs®, pedagogy”

(réf 34C)
Duration: 5 days (30 hours)

Description :

The main topic of this course is dedicated to the teaching pedagogy of the “No-Risk Abs® methods”.
It’ll give you tips about how to get your student to understand the ins and outs of the method and avoid pathologies.
At the end of this 3rd course, a “No-Risk Abs®” certificate will be delivered, valid for 2 years
(It’s possible to get a definitive certificate by following a verification course.
This additional course must be done within the 2 years following the deliverance of the temporary certificate).

Course’s structure :
Practice : Detailed review of some of the exercises broached on the 2nd course
Pedagogical analysis of these exercises
Theory : Additional content on the visceral chamber, and the vertebral column

Thorough analysis of exercises, from an anatomic and analytical point of view.

Additional content on the pathologies usually met in body training exercises

Tips about how to fit the exercises to collective courses

Details about the limits of the “No-Risk Abs®” method.

Pedagogy: How to teach in aerobic mode: rhythm, intensity, progression

Tips and key points about how to link up one sequence to the other

Vocal pedagogy : How to use rhythmic dialogue during the courses

Assessment : Teaching session, where students will teach one of the exercises they learnt in front of the group

(The performance is then analyzed and corrected).
