PS2AD/Human Performance Series
A 12 Day Program linking Prague School to Athletic Development.
Goal: Learn an agile, upstream approach to promoting return to activity & resilent sustainable athleticism.
Taught in three 3 Day Courses each followed by a series of 1 day Bridge the Gap programs.
Read about the course offerings below, then check out Dr. Liebenson’s course schedule to find the course(s) you want in a city near you.
These are interactive, problem-solving workshops. You can start at any point in the program (since they are divided up topically.

Learn how to efficiently –
What Can You Expect to Learn?
The PS2AD/Human Performance “Best Practices” series is an ideal prep for changing one’s paradigm from –
Learning Objective: To efficiently integrate the “best practices” from the fields of rehabilitation, pain management, athletic development, & behavioral modification for preventing the chronic rehabber & building resilent, sustainable activity tolerance & peak performance.
At the end of the day it takes passion, study & experience to learn how to be STRONG in this model. As Pavel Tsatsouline says “You are strong when you can make the hard easy”. Thus, EFFICIENCY is one of our hallmarks. The other is integration since its better to “be a learn it all, not a know it all”.
Our Philosophy: The key to a sustainable approach to activity is baking positive lifestyle choices/optionality into our environment. This epitomizes an agile, upstream mindset with minimal downside risk.

Bridge the Gap (BTG) Courses – One Day updates linking each course
- Review the concepts & implementation of the A,B & C programs
- While the 3 day workshops cover the Science & Rationale or WHY of the series along with the craft, skill, methods or WHAT. The BTG programs emphasize HOW to integrate the course work in different environments.
