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 the movement.

Many of the unloaded exercises can be done daily to increase the
Individuals stress response. Therefore they should be performed frequently as home exercises.
