Yesterday a fellow instructor posted a comment about one of his newer FT clients. This client was really impressed with FT. The client went on to say, FT is like putting yourself in traction using your own muscles. That after doing his FT exercises he felt like he had just gotten off an inversion table.
I wanted to elaborate a little more on his thoughts because I loved his assessment and wanted more readers an opportunity to keep learning how powerful FOUNDATION TRAINING really is.
Traction simple means pulling apart of the body. Usually, some type of mechanical device is used to help accomplish this. You want to do traction usually to create space, stretch/lengthen something, relieve pain. Traction can and does accomplish these things in a lot of cases.
FOUNDATION TRAINING can for sure accomplish all the above listed goals better… the beauty of FT and why it works long term is you are using your own muscles!!! How many articles have I written saying FOUNDATION TRAINING, creates space, lengthens the spine and muscles of the posterior chain, improves flexibility and mobility, strengthens the muscles of the posterior chain. Foundation Training wakes up these weak, tight, sore underused muscles of the posterior chain and gradually gets them to fire, lengthen while holding tension, use oxygen to help heal tissue, the better you get…the more tension you learn to create and hold…the stronger your muscles get.
I have been on an inversion table and they do feel good. When you get off you do feel “lighter. BUT, you did no work physically… So, nothing will change. Gravity was doing the work. In a very short time your body will revert right back to it’s compressed state because you did no work physically. Same goes for decompression tables. The weighted pulley systems does the work…
FOUNDATION TRAINING is far superior because you will have the ability to “traction” yourself and the results are going to be everlasting. I do not say this because I teach FT. I say this because of my chronic back pain the last 30 plus years. Because I did go to a chiropractor regularly and I did get regular massages and I did get on an inversion table…all these things did help, but I still had bouts of my back “going out” and was always in pain. Since, FOUNDATION TRAINING…my body has changed! I am lengthened and muscularly stronger. I don’t have the pressure in my low back anymore because of the space I have created. Every muscle attached to my pelvis is more pliable and stronger. My posture and body awareness is much improved! I still get my monthly Chiropractic adjustment because even though I am not in pain…the bones still need to be adjusted. I still get my massages because that soft tissue work is necessary for relieving muscle tightness and improving blood flow. I truly know how to take care of my body and if I do get a little episode of pain…I know what to do to manage it.
Foundation Training is medicine…FT is self care…FT is simple, effective and powerful. Foundation Training will improve your body and your life! If you really want to feel better, get out of pain, improve so many things about your body… Contact me.
