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.

Forces "and how we look at our body"?

Forces We have an illusion of the skeletons that hangs in the classroom. One bone on top of the other!    So we think of the skeleton as a solid frame work on which the muscel works on, - but it not that way. - The bones float in the soft tissue. Therefore we need to think differently when it comes to movement health and training. Building a house is based on compressional forces. The human organism is not a house since its shape is based on compression and tensional forces. Traditional strength training really heavily on compression forces, which is only one of the foundations.   Procedos P9 Exercises system rely on how the forces acting together since this...

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...
