AUTHENTIC MOVEMENTS

AUTHENTIC MOVEMENTS The different dots simulate ground drivers to create authentic movement situations. The angles simulate directional changes in exercises. These Platform 9 markers serve as external cues and have solid science behind them. External cues are proven to not only make people perform better, but they also assist users in learning movements faster. As health and fitness practitioners, we also get the opportunity to observe more natural and authentic movements from the user. BRIDGES THE GAP The key feature of Platform 9™ is that it bridges the gap between different occupations in the field of spatial medicine. It also bridges the gap between screening/observation and training, since these two should really be the same thing. We can now begin...

FROM STRUCTURAL TO FUNCTIONAL

DID WE ALREADY KNOW IT ALL IN 1550? Andreas Vesalius (1514–1564) was an Belgian anatomist, physician, and author of one of the most influential books on human anatomy.  There have not been many practical changes since Vesalius’ book came out. Yes, we have renamed muscles and found a couple of new ones, but the changes have mostly taken place on the theoretical side. The principles of thinking – how we are built, how we function – have only very recently started to change. But what has changed? FROM STRUCTURAL TO FUNCTIONAL Structural anatomy is a vital instrument when navigating the body, especially when it is treated as a clinical entity. But when you add movement, the situation becomes entirely different. What we...

Procedos Power training

  Procedos Power training does not have to be technically advanced Our mission at Procedos is to create exercises to REINFORCE and maximize power production. Acquiring power is the ultimate goal, and the other elements are developed as part of getting power. Some of these elements are BALANCE, STABILITY, FLEXIBILITY, STRENGTH, COORDINATION, and ENDURANCE.   When designing REINFORCE exercises that demand and develop power, we have many several strategies we can use to ensure that the exercises are well-suited for the individual’s needs. We can change the DISTANCE (IROM-MROM). We can POSITION the feet with 50% weight distribution to make it easier. We can change the LOAD to maintain a fast rate. We can change the DIRECTION. We can take...

HOW CAN WE UNLOAD MOVEMENTS?

HOW CAN WE UNLOAD MOVEMENTS? One of the most vital aspects of our exercises is the ability to regress them. Since many movements in our system are authentic but not often conditioned, they sometimes need to be unloaded (restored) before loaded (reinforced). In our restore exercises it is common that we use unloading strategies to get the body to move more efficiently.  When unloading the body with external support, the body tends to give us more motion. Since motion ability is the essence of all movements, it is important to understand this concept. Motion is also the key to stability,  When we have gained new motion with our restore exercises and unloading strategies, we have created an opportunity to reinforce...

Why Restore ?

Procedos purpose with Restore exercises is to gain motion potential. More motion in a joint will lead to other recruitment potential for muscles. Changes in recruitment of muscles lead to the potential for movement variability. Restore Exercises are characterized by low-loading (only bodyweight or less) and slow dynamic movements. When restrictions are found, the goal is to work as close to the restriction as possible without going into the restricted angle/depth. Work around the problem, - not in the problem. Procedos Platform 9™ provides a framework for measurements and external cues. This makes it easy to track progress in movement ranges, perception of stretch load and so on.   It is vital to understand the individual aspect of restrictions of...
