Flexibility & Functionality, Sports Specific.
First of all, let me congratulate you for being so active. Do you have a particular sport or activity (Golf, Tennis, gardening, playing with the kids, etc) that you wish to improve? As a weekend warrior do you sometimes feel sore or perhaps collect an injury or muscle strain in the aftermath?
The purpose of this program addresses three main concerns:
1) Make improvements and render your tasks and activities easier
2) Improve your body for increased "efficiency"
3) Reduce the risk of injury...Lower back, shoulders, knees, hips, and carpal tunnel to name a few.
Naturally, I applaud all those who are involved in the "magic of movement". Nevertheless, as with many things in life, there has to be a balance. Unfortunately about 40% of amateur golfers and tennis players injure themselves according to the American Orthopedic Society. Twice as many (80%) who are sedentary will experience issues with their lower-back especially when competing as "weekend warriors".
Many of these problems could have been avoided with a proper warm-up and cool-down. Improved conditioning together with a better understanding of the physiological requirements of the activity help in reducing many risk factors. Even the greatest athletes have personal trainers and health consultants. For most of us, flexibility declines at a rate of 5% annually and is the leading cause of imbalance and falls among seniors. Let me ask you some questions. Please answer with honesty....No one is looking!!
- Have you experienced soreness, stiffness, cramping after a day of sport/activity?
- When you rotate your head from one side to the other is there a difference in ROM (Range of motion)?
- Can you balance on one leg (20 secs) then switch to the other side with equal effect?
- Would you like to have more power to make the ball travel further and with more accuracy?
- Would you perfer to have more strength, flexibility and endurance?
For a moment, we sounded like a physician. We are not. If you are in any pain then your Dr should be consulted. We are experts in the field of bio-mechanics and functionality and have helped many perform to the best of their ability.Let's stop for a moment to consider the vast majority of sports and activities. Whether you are jumping, bending, reaching, swinging, pushing, pulling, punching or lifting there is one group of muscles involved and committed... the core. Lumbar thoracic spine pelvis hips and abdominals.
