THE THREE ELEMENTS OF PHYSICAL AUTONOMY
For real-world movement ability you can rely on, it’s important to develop strength in all directions and even in unusual positions.
Flexibility & Mobility
Fewer restrictions in your ranges of motion means you can move with grace and ease.
Control is your ability to direct your body’s capabilities and have it respond like a finely-tuned machine to your needs and wishes.
If you’ve ever watched a talented athlete and envied their abilities, you know it’s a combination of factors that leads to that kind of performance. But when you start training, you can easily get stuck fixating on just a small piece of the puzzle.
Sometimes, it’s the quest for maximal strength. Others, it’s the strict adherence to a system of skill progressions that lead towards a particular goal. Either way, you’ll eventually get stuck unless you address the right combination of abilities.
The truth is that any skill you may want to do with your body is made up of three components: strength, flexibility, and motor control.
“This is the most wholesome activity I can experience because it treats my whole body, mind and spirit. It helps my aches and pains, calms my mind and lifts my spirit.”
“Over the last decade I have had my left shoulder rebuilt, multiple herniations of my lumbar spine I am stronger than I have ever been. My usable strength has increased so tremendously it's astounding. ”
Mark A. Berthold
“You will feel stronger. You will improve your mobility. It feels so good that it doesn’t feel like you’re sacrificing anything to make time for training. And if you’re anything like me, you’ll never go back.”
“Since we have been utilising these movements, I have noticed greater range of motion and flexibility in other movements and activities I perform inside and outside of the gym.”
EXPAND WHAT YOUR WHOLE BODY CAN DO
GET UNSTUCK BY FIXING YOUR WEAKEST LINKS
The AAA Framework is deceptively simple. It seems like “common sense,” but once you spend time looking at how most people train, you’ll see it’s anything but. Most programs are based on generalized assumptions about what you should practice.
Since weaknesses are never identified, they can’t be adequately addressed in the training. Instead, you end up practicing exercises and skills the trainer naturally excels at. It’s truly a case of “guru knows best,” which only works for people who have the same natural abilities.
I designed Free movements around five core moves that give you the specific physical attributes you need for a stronger and more responsive body that can move with fluid agility and absolute freedom in any situation.
Assess Your Abilities
Over the first few sessions you’ll learn the basic movement patterns while testing your current levels of strength, flexibility, and control.
Address Your Weaknesses
Once you’ve set your baseline you’ll practice specific movement variations, transitions, and circuit training to strengthen your weakest links as efficiently as possible.
Apply Your Skills
As your foundation strengthens you’ll challenge and refine your skills with new transitions, combinations, and flows that lead to easy agility in all your activities.
A lot of programs will make you stronger. Some will improve your flexibility. A handful will build your skills progressively.
But what we’ve learned from working with tens of thousands of people around the world is that, if you lack in any one of these three elements, eventually you WILL get stuck – no matter what program you follow.
Elements is designed to fix that using our “AAA” training framework.
