How Platform 9™ (P9) training works


The platform serves as a foundation for movement variables. This includes length, width and angles. Since every functional movement has an angle, as well as vertical and horizontal displacement, we want to mimic those variables. Functional movements are not typically performed twice or more in the exact same manner, not in life or in sports.


On the P9 we can choose what type of movements we want to execute. By, for example, using the different dots (numbers) on P9, we can create a movement variable that changes with each repetition. The change can take place through altering movement length, width and/or angle.

This creates not only different motor-learning aspects and proprioception, but it also spreads out the mechanical stress placed upon the tissues. The main benefits of the P9 exercise system from the user perspective are that it creates movement variability, gives external cues, provides an observation system, makes training fun and game-like, and gives each user great results – simple!

We here at Procedos believe the research which says that the human movement system is integrated. Therefore we also believe that this is how our bodies should be trained. This does not exclude training local movements where more stress is placed on one segment – in most movements there are some parts that handle  more stress than others. But even these movements are almost always integrated.


Training in all planes of motion is nothing new. However, the simple practical implementation has been lost along the way. 3D training is not only doing lunges anterior, lateral and rotational, instead of the more traditional, more common stationary or back-and-forth way. 3D means activating the entire body and using muscle integration for all movements. The P9 system makes 3D training easy enough for anyone to follow, guaranteeing a great workout.
