Webinar: RPM2 Presents Bi-Lateral Equivalency Training
Topic: RPM2 Presents 'Enhancing Athletic Performance by Focusing on Bi-Lateral Equivalency in Training'
Bi-lateral equivalence occurs when equal force, amount, or value (range of motion) is applied to limbs offering the same effect, capacity, and function. Regardless of how finely tuned your athletes are, most are not bilaterally equivalent which can lead to deficiencies in their training. Not being bilaterally equivalent can cause Reduced Range of Motion, Reduced Gait and Strength, Reduced Cycling Force and Increased Potential For Injury. This webinar will define bi-lateral equivalence and provide exercises that you can use to properly address this occurrence in your athlete’s training.
Johnny Ross began his professional career in 1988 with the American Cancer Society. In this capacity, he was the Area Director of Development and worked closely with the Area Board of Directors to develop and implement strategic imperatives.
In 1994, he joined Ortho Pharmaceuticals, a Johnson & Johnson Company, where he promoted pharma products to Urology, Family Practice, and Gynecology. In 1998 he was promoted to District Manager for the newly formed Women’s Health Care Franchise where he led a team of 12 representatives in the Dallas area. In 2003, he was promoted to the Centers of Excellence for Johnson & Johnson. In this capacity, he negotiated managed care contracts for the 16 product small molecule portfolio. He also worked closely with regional sales managers regarding push and pull through strategies pursuant to negotiated contracts.
In 2007, Johnny had major reconstructive knee surgery, which led him to invent a medical device employing remote technology for physical therapy. Given this technology, and the amount of technology now being used in athletics, he quickly realized the utility of his device in this space. Spawned from a medical device, RPM2 was born in late 2012 and is now available to the market. Johnny earned his Bachelor of Science, Texas Tech University, 1986, and Master of Public Administration, Angelo State University, 1989.
