More and more we are having a debate on which training style is better and more effective. Is it the body-building, functional training, yoga, cross-fit, high intensity? The truth is that we are asking the wrong question as every training modality yields unique benefits. Thus, an all-inclusive approach to programming may be most effective.
Bad exercise or training style doesn't exist, the issue is with the inappropriate prescription, wrong dosage and poor timing.
Our continuum based thinking allow us to explore our very extensive and diverse exercise library and use it correctly based on individuals 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 powerful when it's done as a whole.
WHERE DO WE START
Before we design any individual program it's helpful to know how we can help you, therefore, our free of charge casual chat is our mutual starting point. First movement session allows us to see how you move and feel during the movement. This allows us to not only tailor your program but also arm you with some powerful self-care strategies which are quick and easy to implement into your life and perform anytime and anywhere.
METHODS WE USE
The health and performance of the body rely on our ability to move variably, and it adapts in kind.
Together with traditional strength methods 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 fantastic for enhancing mobility and flexibility, they can improve fluid circulation and create total-body awareness. The ability to get up off the ground is THE fundamental principle of life.
- Activations enhance the relationship between muscles, fascia and nerves which is vital for pain management, efficiency and movement longevity. They can improve core function in the upright position, reactivity and neural sequencing.
- Hip De-coupling are powerful solutions for better hip mobility, less wear and tear through low back and may improve rhythm through lower back/hip area.
- Restorative Poses can improve mindfulness, tissue extensibility and help to down-regulate sympathetic nervous system(fight or flight).
- 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.
