Resistance Flexibility

Resistance Flexibility and Strength Training (RFST) or Resistance Stretching is a groundbreaking technique that empowers you to stretch and strengthen your body through the simple use of resistance.

Resistance Flexibility & Strength Training:

  • offers immediate, cumulative, and permanent increases in flexibility

  • takes the pain out of stretching

  • protects one from injuring themselves by over-stretching

  • results in gains in both strength and aerobic capacity

  • improves performance accuracy

  • creates more powerful, explosive, and core stable movements

Resistance Flexibility & Strength Training teaches you that:

  • in order to get a true gain in flexibility, you must continuously contract the target muscle group while elongating it

  • a muscle is only truly flexible to the point where it can continue to maximally resist while being lengthened

  • stretching without continuously contracting a muscle produces a false range of motion known as substitution, and ultimately results in over-stretching and injury

  • stretches can be reversed to provide strength training to the same muscle group

Resistance Stretching can be performed:

  • at any time and any place since no equipment is required

  • alone by resisting against one’s own body, the ground, a wall, or other props

  • in a group setting through assisted stretching

The Genius of Flexibility:

  • is a program of 16 powerful stretching exercises for each level of practice: beginner, intermediate, advanced, and assisted

  • is a noninvasive and preventative health program with resulting gains in physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual development

  • is rooted in principles from Traditional Chinese Medicine

  • provides 16 different types of exercises, each one uniquely correlated to a:

    • meridian
    • major muscle group
    • organ
    • high and low physical, spiritual, emotional, and psychological trait
    • genetic personality type
    • classical hatha yoga pose
    • body part / tissue
    • bone rotational interrelationship

Increases in Resistance Flexibility result in:

  • corrective realignment of bone rotational interrelationships

  • removing chronic joint stress

  • re-establishing optimal bio-mechanical efficiency

Regular, repeated practice of Resistance Stretching can produce:

  • greater strength from the same muscle mass. As muscles become more flexible, they become more efficient producers of force

  • greater range of motion producing enhanced athletic performance in the form of speed and agility gains

  • improved muscle function, so that your body is able to perform more complex movements with ease

  • more optimal biomechanical alignment which leads to a more comfortable body that can withstand higher stresses and repeated actions at the joints

  • a more robust skeletal structure that is less prone to injuries and breakdowns

  • increased stamina and muscle recovery which allows the same body to perform more powerfully with less effort

Resistance Stretching plays a key role in preventative medicine as it:

  • takes a proactive role in targeting specific areas of potential injury

  • removes chronic injuries

  • upgrades kinetic bio-mechanics with concomitant improvement in physiological and psychological health
