Interesting facts about The Reflexive Performance Reset technique

1) In the RPR course you learn to reset and activate the diaphragm. This is very important for a lot functions in the body.
"The diaphragm muscle not only plays a role in respiration but also has many roles affecting the health of the body. It is important for posture, for proper organ function, and for the pelvis and floor of the mouth. It is important for the cervical spine and trigeminal system, as well as for the thoracic outlet. It is also of vital importance in the vascular and lymphatic systems. The diaphragm muscle should not be seen as a segment but as part of a body system." Read the research article here. 

2) Brian Weiss of Triad High School attended the two-day event. Here are his observations:
Psoas activation is key to proper movement. Our emphasis in athletic training, particularly strength training, may be the wrong emphasis. Getting “activated” made me feel the most physically powerful and aware that I have felt in years. Many of the key things we want to see in athletes (good posture, good hip position) seem to be achieved quickly, using activation. I will activate myself, every day, from now on. I will think about my breathing and how I breathe for the rest of my life. “RPR” can be used as a team builder by athletes breathing together and in advanced situations, activating each other. Being self-aware and in a parasympathetic state or “in the zone” will create optimum performance. The “Fight or Flight” state is not what we want. In the parasympathetic state we can control ourselves because we have a certainty and trust in ourselves, so much so that even in extreme situations, we will not change who we are. We will be certain of ourselves individually and we will be certain of our team collectively.

3) In the RPR course you learn what zones 1, 2 and 3 are and how to reset them.
Learn to see kinetic links and how hip mobility can have influence on elbow pain!

4) “The cause of a pulled hamstring is almost never a weak hamstring. The hamstring is like the lights on the dashboard of your car, they tell you there is a problem but aren’t the problem themselves. If you don’t fix the cause then then at best rehab will progress slowly, at worst the injury will re-occur.”  – Boo Schexnayder. 

5) We don’t live like our ancestors. During the last 40,000 years, our bodies evolved to respond to a lifestyle foreign to us now. Now we sit all the time. Our food is unlimited. Instead of living a life-long hunting trip, we sit. Our muscles have trouble staying in sync. Our nervous systems get confused. Strong muscles may be dysfunctional.

6) Eric Kramer of Bartlett High School also attended the two-day event. His observations:
I took my first breath (I’ve never taken a correct breath) I discovered my deficiencies, compensations, and blocking patterns. Now I know why I was not fast and flexible. I’ve struggled with certain movements as an athlete and in everyday life. I have not been able to straighten my elbow for 15 years (half my life). I could fully extend my elbow after one session. I learned how to evaluate a person’s driver for hip flexion. I learned how to change the body’s compensations and patterns to decrease the risk of injury and improve quality of life. I gained the knowledge/understanding of activation techniques to enhance performance (compared to the bigger, faster, stronger type programs that ruin athletes and increase risks of injuries). My entire coaching staff for boy’s track and field will be at the workshop in February.

7) RPR and injury reduction:
The seven-year injury data is compelling. The technique was first implemented in 2012. Prior to activation, the entire Nazareth football program averaged 73 injuries per year. Injuries are defined as something causing a player to miss at least one practice or one game. A season-ending injury is considered one injury. One missed practice is considered one injury. Since activation, injuries have been reduced by 45%. In 2008, there were 87 injuries, in 2014’s extended season, there has been only 31. The number of combined fractures and surgeries have been reduced from 9.0 per year to 1.5 per year.
