Asymmetry Series (43 min)

While it might seem strange to purposely target a movement series toward asymmetry, it's the essential way our bodies naturally operate; so to maximize function and performance it's important to train the body as it was designed. Asymmetry is even more obvious in athletics (golf, tennis, boxing, etc.) and even seemingly symmetrical activities (walking, running, cycling, etc.) are actually coordinated one-sided movements with alternating contractions of the muscles of stabilization synchronized with muscles of momentum.


Using the Tensatoner™ tool to create asymmetrical loads and balance through more than 20 unique exercises and variations, this series trains the core muscles to work in harmony with the extremities. As the spine is made up of a series of flexible joints, and is not a singular hinge joint; we must train the muscles supporting the spine in ways that use our core to inhibit spinal motion and transfer power. The bottom line is that functional asymmetry abounds, so training our bodies by placing it under an asymmetrical load will train the core as it was organically designed.


"If you are not training for function, you are training for dysfunction".
