Health – foundation for max performance

There are many goals for training, but one thing unites them all… In order to achieve long-term results, to achieve goals that are life-long, you need to move, practice, and ensure recovery in long-term. Unfortunately, good results from exercise, nutrition or recovery are not stored. Unless things go south as fat and poor condition are stored in the body…

In pursuit of maximum performance or health and well-being, perseverance and ascendancy are right at the heart of the business. But instead of quantitative goals (strength, speed, muscle mass, fat loss), especially in the beginning, focus should be on the quality of the work.

If physical activity is increased incrementally without high-quality exercise and exercise techniques, the risk of injury increases as musculoskeletal structures are overloaded.

High quality basic, foundational movement techniques such as pushing forwards and upwards, pulling backwards and downwards, squats and lunges, and various variations of lifts n are the cornerstones of basic muscular training. In general, it could be said that most of the other “lifting movements” are variations of these foundational movements.

In order to move safely to the variations of these basic movements, the techniques of the foundational movements should be like cast in cement. For the foundation to be strong and confident enough, they should to repeated and strengthen enough, especially when starting musculoskeletal conditioning and training … Not to mention that the Great Masters always go back to the basics, they always practice them… because they are the … foundation …

We often move too hastily to more complex variations, too complex programming which already requires a great deal of skills and understanding from the movement pattern perspective alone. One reason is definitely that the basic movements seem too boring, too simple … after all, they are the “only the basic” movements …

It could not be more opposite … There is nothing simple about in basic movements if we want their techniquess first and foremost to serve health and secondly to maximize performance. In order for basic movements / exercises to serve health, they need to develop / improve basic movements outside the training facilities. As a result, the foundational understanding of these basic movements derive from the basic movement in everyday life, it’s functional anatomy.

For example, in pushing and pulling movements, the co-operation of the Scapula and the Humerus in shoulder girdle creates the foundation for training and the power for the entire upper limb. First, the base position of the Scapula must be appropriate enough to allow the Scapula to move in the appropriately to appropriate direction. After that, one must be able to move the upper limb so that the Scapula is leading the movement, not just moving with the upper limb. This significantly reduces the risk of shoulder injuries and, at the same time, maximizes power output, while the active & dynamic Scapular control provides the basis for upper limb power generation, supporting it through the range of movement.

For us to be able to get the Scapula in to an appropriate position for the Scapula to form the foundation of upper limb power one must first understand the 3-D functional anatomy of the shoulder girdle (muscles, connective tissue, bones, joints, and nervous system effects) and how it’s affected by the posture and movement of the rest of the body.
