Rapid Mobility

Rapid Mobility & Neurological Warm Up
Muscles do not stretch the way most everyone thinks they do. You must continuously contract the muscles while lengthening them, from a position where those muscles are as short as possible and into a length where they are as long as possible. You can only lengthen to a range where the muscles being stretched can still resist. The resistance used to stretch a muscle must approach 2X’s the maximum resistance that the person can over come in Resistance Strength Training. Contracting the muscle with the Phoenix Waveform during stretching takes the pain out of stretching and prevents over-stretching (over-stretching creates dangerous potential weaknesses in and around joint structures).
 When you use the Phoenix Waveform to contract the muscles then you lengthen your muscles the result is an immediate, cumulative, and permanent change in resistance flexibility (note: range of motion is not the true flexibility range of the muscle) with a simultaneous increase in the ability of those muscles to shorten more optimally (the contraction stretch length is inversely proportional to the shortening length). Stretching without contracting a muscle produces a false range of motion known as substitution, and ultimately results in over-stretching and injury
The resulting improvements in muscle contraction while lengthening the muscles results in dramatic bio-mechanical realignment of the skeletal system – improved bone rotational relationships (BRI) occur. This translates into increases in speed, acceleration, and accuracy in skill level.
Indications for use: Lack of mobility, reduced range of motion, stiffness or tightness, pain relief, as a warm up or movement prep before exercise or training session, before an event or race, to increase mobility around an injured body part, any time increased mobility is desired.
Program:
Phoenix: Square wave with carrier at 10 kHz, and zero net charge but tweaked to have a DC component; it is coupled with a low-frequency waveform at 500 Hz and 500 µs of pulse width positive and 500 µs negative. Electron flow is reversible. Output is constant current going up to 120 mA on channels 1 and 3.
 
Basic breathing exercise to hyper-oxygenate the blood

Movement: Breath in deep through the nose, the blow all the air out of your lungs through your mouth. (You may feel a little lighted headed the first few times you do this.)
 
Repetitions: 30
 
Standing Toe Touch

Pad placement: Black pad on the belly of the hamstring, red pad on the belly of the gastrocnemius. Repeat the same pad placement on the opposite side of the body.
 
Intensity: Slight to moderate muscle contraction or a discomfort level of 4-5 on a scale of 10. 
 
Movement: Stand tall with your toes slightly elevated, while holding 10-25 pounds, slowing bend forward and try to touch your toes, hold for 3 seconds then return to the upright position.
 
Hyperoxygenation Breathing: To hyper-oxygenate the blood Inhale deeply through your nose, then as you are moving though the movement blow all the air out of your lungs, then inhale deeply again through your nose, blow all the air out of your lungs as you move back to the the starting position. Repeat this throughout the movement session.
 
Repetitions: 5-10
 
Squat

Pad placement: Back pad on the belly of the gluteus maximus, red pad on the belly of the quadriceps. Repeat the same pad placement on the opposite side of the body.
 
Intensity: Slight to moderate muscle contraction or a discomfort level of 4-5 on a scale of 10. 
 
Movement: Stand tall and hold onto an TRX, rope, door jam. Drop down into the squat position making sure to keep you knees over your ankles. Try not to let you knees go too far in front on your knees. You can do this without holding a support, however try to make sure to not allow your knees to go in front of your knees.  
 
Hyperoxygenation Breathing: To hyper-oxygenate the blood Inhale deeply through your nose, then as you are moving though the movement blow all the air out of your lungs, then inhale deeply again through your nose, blow all the air out of your lungs as you move back to the the starting position. Repeat this throughout the movement session.
 
Repetitions: 5-10. Each time try going deeper into the squat. (Get your butt closer to the ground while keeping you knees over or in-line with you ankles.

Pad placement: Back pad on the belly of the gluteus maximus, red pad on the belly of the quadriceps.
 
Intensity: Slight to moderate muscle contraction or a discomfort level of 4-5 on a scale of 10. 
 
Movement: Stand tall with the support of a TRX or rope, preform a rear lunge. Step back with one leg while bending supporting leg. Plant forefoot far back on floor. Lower body by flexing knee and hip of supporting leg until knee of rear leg is almost in contact with floor. Return to original standing position by extending hip and knee of forward supporting leg and return rear leg next to supporting leg. Repeat movement with opposite legs alternating between sides.
 
Hyperoxygenation Breathing: To hyper-oxygenate the blood Inhale deeply through your nose, then as you are moving though the movement blow all the air out of your lungs, then inhale deeply again through your nose, blow all the air out of your lungs as you move back to the the starting position. Repeat this throughout the movement session.
 
Repetitions: 5-10

Pad placement: Black pad on the lower back, red pad over the psoas muscle on the same side. Repeat the same pad placement on the opposite side of the body.
 
Intensity: Slight to moderate muscle contraction or a discomfort level of 4-5 on a scale of 10. 
 
Movement: Preform a rear lunge. Step back with one leg while bending supporting leg. Plant forefoot far back on floor. Lower body by flexing knee and hip of supporting leg until knee of rear leg is almost in contact with floor. Put you hands over your head and bent away from the knee that is close to the ground.  
 
Hyperoxygenation Breathing: To hyper-oxygenate the blood Inhale deeply through your nose, then as you are moving though the movement blow all the air out of your lungs, then inhale deeply again through your nose, blow all the air out of your lungs as you move back to the the starting position. Repeat this throughout the movement session.
 
Repetitions: 5-10 each side

Pad placement: Black pad on the lower back, red pad over the psoas muscle on the same side. Repeat the same pad placement on the opposite side of the body.
 
Intensity: Slight to moderate muscle contraction or a discomfort level of 4-5 on a scale of 10. 
 
Movement: Stand tall, then begin by tilting the lumbar spine laterally (run your hand down the side of your pants seam). Totally relax the neck (no neck tension at all). Allow the head to hang freely. Keep the lumbar spine relaxed and long. Rotate to the other side. Return to the upright position by drawing your hand  up the pant seam.
 
Hyperoxygenation Breathing: To hyper-oxygenate the blood Inhale deeply through your nose, then as you are moving though the movement blow all the air out of your lungs, then inhale deeply again through your nose, blow all the air out of your lungs as you move back to the the starting position. Repeat this throughout the movement session.
