What goes into a proper exercise progression? Follow this 6 step progression to create an effective workout.
1. Tissue Quality
2. Joint mobility
3. Dynamic Warmup
4. Specific Work
5. Core work
What do these individual compenents mean?
Lets look at them individually
1. Tissue Quality- an effective workout will start by prepping your muscle tissue for the demands about to be asked of it. This is accomplished thru foam rolling each body part and creating soft supple muscle tissue, causing an increase in blood flow as well as breaking up the adhesions between your muscle tissue and your fascia.
2. Joing Mobility- having the right mobility and the right stability in the right places is the difference between a health spine, a stable core, and pain free movement as opposed to knee pain, back pain, or inflexibility. Joints should be as follows:
Lumbar Spine- Stable
Thoracic Spine- Mobile
Shoulder- Mobile with Stability
