STRONG INSIDE OUT
This is a strength and awareness program FOR EVERYONE, no matter your current physical condition.
Allowing optimal functional muscle development with a MINIMUM AMOUNT OF EFFORT.
LITTLE TO NO PROPS ARE NEEDED so you can perform the exercises anywhere and at any time.
MINIATURE MEDITATIONS SLOTS
The strength of this program is that it incorporates and allows for a mindfulness practice during these exercises developing more awareness in your everyday life.
You can look at them as miniature meditation slots throughout your day.
Regardless of personal goals, this is mainly a low impact strength program so the real gains will be in REAL LIFE FUNCTIONAL STRENGTH that can help you AVOID INJURIES, STRENGTHEN INJURED AREAS AND OF COURSE GET YOU A LEAN ATHLETIC BODY.
Because of its unparalleled ability to strengthen joints and bones, this is the perfect complement to other forms of strength requiring practices, be it WEIGHTLIFTING or YOGA.
WHAT IS AN ISOMETRIC MUSCLE CONTRACTION?
An isometric contraction is when a muscle is contracted WITHOUT CHANGING THE MUSCLES LENGTH over a joint using either an immovable force of resistance or a movable force of resistance which we provided in the exercises using your own limbs or simple props like a belt.
Opposite to the more common dynamic muscle contractions used during TRADITIONAL WEIGHT TRAINING, where the muscles length is shortened over a joint and an external force of resistance is used like a dumbbell .
PROPERLY PERFORMED isometric contractions promote optimal development of the mind's ability to FOCUS while improving and strengthening physically the signaling path of the nervous system and CREATING MORE NERVE CONNECTIONS to the muscle we are contracting than any other form of strength training.
ISOMETRIC STRENGTH AND MINDFULNESS
The secret to true strength development is all about BODY AWARENESS during maximum load of a joint.
A large part of this program is focused on providing you MINDFULNESS TOOLS specific to developing body awareness.
During this program, you will gain MUSCLE STRENGTH and overall control of your body while improving your ability to relax by sensing previously unconscious MUSCLE TENSIONS.
To be able to willfully RELAX a muscle you first need to be able to willfully contract a muscle for an extended period.
BREATHING awareness is also developed as a crucial step during the program.
Performing these exercises throughout your day at work, for example, does not only save you time otherwise spent at the gym but also allows for a natural RE-CENTERING of your body, mind, and heart.
