What is Function?

We define function as the summation of an individuals needs and wants required to accomplish a goal. Therefore, in order for an exercise to be functional, it must have a purpose. We will use the R3 programming to identify, categorize, then program for each client’s individual goals. By understanding and implementing the Functional Sphere, we can assess and RESTORE motion.   1st Principle Functional Sphere Satisfy Needs What Is It? Imagine a giant bubble surrounding your body. Where does it end? By using either your hand or foot, reach as far away from your body as possible in all directions. These are the outer limits of your current functional sphere. And it is within this sphere where all functional exercise...

Load and Explode in functional training with Procedos Platform9

Learn how to load to Expload and to be Explosive!  procedos is adding new trainingprograms so you can learn how to control the Decelerative phase of your movement and to be able to have a power concentric output. The perception of the capacity of absorbing force in the lower limbs allows you to be more efficient in your sport movement and also to have a complete setting of motor control in your life. So you can be ready to cut against your opponents on the field or be ready if you suddenly fall in a little hole while you are walking. Decelerative control it's not only about lower limbs, but it's also about your core and your balance.

Checklist for success with clients with Procedos and how to use Platform9

Where is more movement, function needed? We all want to improve movement / function with where? What is right? How can you Use the Procedos Platform9 in your testing and create systematic ways to success? Some questioin we can ask ourself in the coaching. Which movement (s) are working? How do you know that? ( is the test relevant?) To create success is to find compensation patterns, what prevents function? ( Foot-knee-hip-spine-neck-arms etc.) Where is the energy used? Where are the energy thieves? Local structures can affect the massive "spider web" Put out fire Tissue tolerance, even if there is optimal function, we can still be damaged due to the lack of tissue tolerance Checklist for training success with clients...

Procedos logical reasoning - research of training metods towards the results

Movement Variability (MV) There is no available research on ideal MV or movement capability, so we have to use logical reasoning. In most cases* the clients seem to find their optimal way of performing the task or exercise. As coaches, our responsibility is to observe, give cues, and create other learning opportunities. Does MV give the user better flexibility to adapt to different environments? Restrictions in movement can become low MV. A stable behavior can be performed in varying ways. MR seems to increase with practice. We need to make novel changes to an exercise if we want to increase the stable MV. Complex movement increases the demand for self-organization. “Promoting complex variation in human movement allows either motor development...

Specificity of exercises and how we can create better results with procedos Platform9

Specificity of exercises Exercises should aim to provide the athlete with some transfer to their sport. Environmental monitoring: Ground, recreating situations with reactive similarities. Proprioception: Similar sensory patterns Intention: Similarity in intention of movement. Intramuscular: Jumping 45 degree anterior- vertical Intermuscular: Using glute and leg structures integrated Outside: Similarity in joint movements Structural-Central-Peripheral Energy Since it is impossible to perfectly mimic the sport itself, it is a good idea to focus on one or more aspects in transfer.     Central & Peripheral Central = Specificity, exercises very close to movement. Peripheral = Unspecific, exercise not close to movement. Usually separated in S&C. Specific character of movement is important. Movement has to be controlled and structured in the brain. There...
