This simple massage technique is utilized to unbind restricted dysfunctional muscles and connective tissue. We teach a systematic approach to applying myofascial manipulation which helps prime the body to become more pliable. The basic tools used can be found at any sporting goods store or online. These techniques are a starting point to help establish the foundation of a well functioning body.
The Functional Patterns system implements techniques that are designed to help override the dysfunctional adaptations humans develop from a heavy amount of sitting, a sedentary lifestyle, standing improperly or partaking in activities and training practices that exacerbate dysfunctions. Learning how to reintegrate into the body from the inside out by obtaining an unconscious neutral posture is the first step to establishing a higher quality of movement.
After a lifetime of poor posture, injuries, repetitive imbalanced movements and/or hardwired patterns from training the body in a certain fashion, the human structure can become tensionally imbalanced. An unconventional approach to corrective exercise is used to facilitate new connections so that proper biomechanics within movement are understood.
We live in a three-dimensional physical environment, therefore it’s important for training practices to reflect this fact. Learning to master transitional movements in all planes of motion will push your level of fitness to greater heights. These multi-plane ballistic movements replicate both real life and athletic situations so your body is prepared for any movement demands it will face.
This involves movement that is constantly changing and progressing. Thousands of variations of exercises are employed within the Functional Patterns system so you will never become bored. You will gain kinestetic competence and the ability to execute powerful and explosive movements. Once the foundations are mastered, be prepared to make continuous progress.
Organisms on the planet locomote in a manner that’s specific to their biology. The gait cycle is the most fundamental type of movement a human does because it’s utilized 99% of the time they are in motion. Mastering an efficient gait is key to reestablishing your biomechanical foundations.
Throwing is a primal and dynamic movement that helps to elasticize the pectoralis major (pecs), which is a key muscle for creating effective posture dynamics that properly link the pec muscle with the rest of the chain. Throwing motions provide the pecs with a whipping action and allow them to be trained in a fashion that translates directly to our human biological design.
STRENGTH AND PERFORMANCE
The manner in which Functional Patterns approaches strength and performance is entirely different than the mainstream. Traditional training is heavily oriented around vertical force and compression, isolated weight lifting, and one dimensional linear movements. Our strength training is applied in a way that translates directly over to athletics, running and even walking. Efficient and relevant movement is our priority. Advanced movers have bodies that function in a certain way and Functional Patterns training will install the mechanical tools needed get humans moving at a high level.
Here are some strategies to help you deal with lower back pain after doing squats. Barbell squats and back pain are typically associated because barbells tend to put vertical pressure on the spine. Leaving tissues [...]
