ASSESSMENTS AND STRUCTURAL BALANCE

How important is it?

The body can be manipulated through loading parameters to achieve results. No results can be achieved without being structurally balanced- this allows all muscles in the body to work at maximum potential.

Regular adherence to the principles of structural balance allows players to reach new levels of speed, strength, power, flexibility and athleticism at an unprecedented level while minimizing their chances of being acutely injured in short-term or developing degenerative injuries in the long-term.

The use of proper structural balance training will allow athletes to reach their athletic potential and correct postural defects while gaining an education in high-level functioning of the human musculoskeletal system and becoming best-prepared for a healthy, productive life.

Grip Strength Testing

Grip strength is a fantastic predictor of overall body strength. Thick grip implements have great benefits for the muscles trained. Training with thick grips will develop a crushing grip and strength-endurance in the forearms, injury prevention it also helps to show an athletes recovery progress- Catapulting your gains to another level. As it is an often overlooked training parameter. Training with Fat Grip variations provides a great stimulus for growth.

Klatt Test

The Klatt test was designed by Lois Klatt, PhD. The primary purpose of the test is to determine weakness in the muscles of the knee, hip, pelvis and lower back.

Create a Solid Foundation: Posterior Training

When you build a house, the foundation is probably the single-most critical factor for its long-term safety and health. It doesn’t look sexy, and it doesn’t get a lot of notoriety, but it’s vital in the long-term. Phase 1 is all about creating a solid movement foundation for you to build upon. Improved freedom of movement (especially at key joints) is going to unlock the true power of your body. Furthermore, the strength-training program is going to re-educate your body, as we’re going to wake-up long forgotten and dormant muscles. Getting big muscles like the glutes, hamstrings and abs stronger, combined with “waking up” little muscles in your upper back, shoulders and hips are going to go a long way to laying your foundation.

Are your Glutes “Firing”? - Weak or Inhibited

If you spend long periods of time sitting in a chair then the front of the hips (hip flexors – psoas) become short and tight, while the back of the hips (gluteal muscles) become long and weak. Soon the body forgets how to use the gluteal muscles because it will divert the neural signal intended for them to a stronger muscle close by to do the job instead. If the neural system is now asking less powerful muscles to perform the task that requires the potential power of the gluteal muscles then this is likely to lead to injury.

Release

This is how you will start off every workout. Soft tissue work via a lacrosse ball or foam roller helps loosen up, or release, stiff, short, or adhered muscle groups and helps to restore optimal mobility. The reset helps realign major joints including the hips and spine, making them more neutral. This will also help “turn on” appropriate muscles before your
