Training Quality Over Quantity

Did you know that 82% of people will injury themselves within the first three months of working out?  We want to make sure that this doesn’t happen to you!  We will be having our third RVLution workout tomorrow at 8:00 am.  Please try to come in a few minutes early, because we would like you to perform the soft tissue work or “roll out” before we get started.  We are going to be reviewing the importance of the Functional Movement System and Corrective Exercise Training.

The Functional Movement System is a great tool to help determine if you have any probable overactive or underactive muscle groups that need to be addressed.  This screening process has been scientifically proven to help you overcome your muscle imbalances and motor dysfunctions.  Standardizing movement is essential for safe, timely, and effective results.

After you completed the screening process you received a colored wristband signifying a motor dysfunction that we need to address.  Don’t worry if you receive multiple wristbands, because this means that you have been properly assessed.  We want to ensure you are doing the correct exercises and preventing injury.  Below is a list of the colors and the corrective exercises that you should be doing during your workout.  If you do not have a color then you will perform the exercise or the progression if it is too easy.

In order to better understand why this is important, let’s take a look at some of the rules that the Functional Movement System are based around.

  • Pain should not be present while performing basic bodyweight movement patterns.  If there is pain associated with these basic movement patterns, then movement patterns will be compromised and substantially increase the likelihood for developing further injury to the site of pain.  Also, this could lead to a secondary injury from the body compensating to avoid the pain or restricted movement.
  • Having multiple limitations within several basic movement patterns, even if they’re pain free, can create compensations and general weaknesses that may lead to a greater likelihood of injury.
  • Basic unilateral movement patterns should be symmetrical on both right and left sides of the body.
  • Fundamental and basic movement patterning should precede performance related activities.
  • Basic before Complex, Stable before Unstable.We do not refer to ourselves as just personal trainers.  We like to call ourselves human movement specialists.  One of our main goals is to help improve your mobility and flexibility.  We also want to make sure you are activating and integrating the right muscle groups when you work out.  We know that this system works, because we have seen our clients overcome their motor dysfunctions and muscles imbalances in just a few weeks following these simple corrective exercises.  We know that they can help you too!Be Fit,Michael Romig – BS, CN, FMS, YFS, PES, CES & RESMichael@pgfit.org832-303-7004
