If you long believed that strength takes time to built, you have been mislead. There are different methods available to built strength through training programs but never do they speak of how posture can affect your strength gains. Through Posturology we have been able to have our athletes break their strength records and increase their strength up to 32% in just one consultation. If you are looking to maximize your strength gains then Posturology might just be what is missing in your training regiment.
Handgrip strength testing has long been used as a tool to measure overall power and strength of muscles. Doctors, physical therapists, scientists and many other healthcare practitioners use it in clinical assessments. This is because muscular strength is very important when it comes to health and longevity.
At Posturepro’s clinic, we used the dynamometer to see if we could increase a young soccer player’s overall strength. After postural corrections, the test showed that his strength increased by a whopping 26%. We are confident that his overall sports performance will be impacted and we expect a decrease in his chances of injury.
If you are looking to increase strength performance with your athletes then Posturology a great tool to add to your arsenal. Although postural imbalances are very common, they are not ideal for your body to function optimally. Humans are genetically wired to function symmetrically so that the body can move easily through space to conserve energy. Postural imbalances work against this goal and create mechanical blockages that can impact strength.
What is Strength?
Strength, in simple terms, is neurological output. It is electrical. It is a state that is dependent on connectivity between the executors (CNS – brain) and the effectors (muscles). In the frontal plane, a tilted shoulder compresses the brachial plexus, which in turn affects the motor output of the shoulder and arm muscles. Simply put, this imbalance can impact how much strength a muscle can develop. This invariably affects performance in key exercises, such as the bench press.
For example: a rotated pelvis in the transverse plane can predispose the gluteus muscles to inhibition thereby greatly affecting the amount of resistance used in an exercises like the squat.
How do we correct the foot?
A thin postural insole (not an orthotic) is used to stimulate the skin at the center reflex zone of each foot. This creates a more even foot stance on the ground and enables each foot to send the same information to the brain. Ultimately, this will also create a level pelvis and level shoulders.
Postural imbalances can affect the capacity of muscles to create joint movements. In order to get stronger and faster, postural corrections must be addressed. As far as sport performance goes, there is no doubt that Posturology is the missing link. It can make the difference between being a good athlete or making it to the Olympic level.
