More and more people ask us which training style is better and more effective. Is it the heavy weights philosophy, functional training, yoga, cross-fit, high intensity?
The truth is that we are asking the wrong question as EVERY training modality yields unique benefits. What we get from yoga we can't get from strength, for example.
We believe that the all-inclusive variable approach to programming may be the most effective. Well, at least if you are looking for sustainability, resiliency and injury prevention. Variability is the fundamental principle of the biology but too much of it creates chaos. Therefore, we use structured programming to organise variability.
The programming system we use creates specific adaptation for muscles, bones, joints, fascia, nervous system, heart and brain.
Our continuum based thinking allow us to explore and apply our extensive and variable movement library and use it correctly based on the individual's abilities, goals and requirements.
We categorise our program design into four quadrants. Each of these Q's carries unique benefits, and the whole program is more powerful.
BEFORE WE DESIGN YOUR PROGRAM
Before we design any individual program we need to know how we can help you, therefore, our FREE OF CHARGE casual chat, on-boarding form and the initial movement session are our starting points.
METHODS WE USE
Together with traditional strength approach we also use a combination of unique and novel solutions to effectively prepare the body for life and its demand
Ground to stand drills are vital for enhancing mobility and flexibility, improve fluid circulation and create total-body awareness. The ability to get up off the ground and go back to the ground is THE fundamental principle of life. We do it many ways, loaded and body-weight.
Activations improve the sensitivity between muscles, fascia (fibrous connective tissue) and nervous system. This process is important for pain management, efficiency and movement longevity.
Hip De-coupling are powerful solutions for better low back health and low back pain management. These strategies improve hip mobility, less wear and tear through low back and may improve rhythm through lower back/hip area.
Restorative Poses improve mindfulness, tissue length (so we feel less tight) and help to down-regulate overused sympathetic nervous system. They improve cell health.
Shifting is moving sub-maximal load through the field of gravity and it's great for tensile strength (create resilient tissue which prevents soft tissue injuries), create stability while moving load off the midline or strengthen collagen in the tissue.
Flow is a sequence of variety of movement organised in a rhythmical way. They can improve cognitive function, motor control or increase aerobic capacity.
