When did you last wonder whether your muscle symmetry is optimising your performance in sport or exercise? How about the way your brain and body are communicating? Could enhancing this dialogue improve your athletic performance?
These are fitness questions few non-elite athletes think to ask. Yet paying attention to, and optimising, the more detailed and intricate factors that affect movement can be the difference between ‘good’ and ‘peak’ performance (you may be surprised to learn of your untapped potential)!
How to harness the science? At Soaring Health, we have translated the science employed by Olympians and elite sports clubs into an 11-step formula suitable for athletes at all levels to realise peak form and results while overcoming injuries and minimising injury risk. The ‘Soaring Health Method’ has been successfully used by numerous elite sports clubs. Here are 3 lesser-known areas to consider when striving for that athletic ‘edge’.
1. Postural symmetry
Identifying subtle changes in natural posture that may reduce joint movement and cause muscle tightness and making corrections.
Determining how each side of the body is functioning and how the brain and body are communicating can inform exercises to enhance agility and coordination.
3. Muscle symmetry
Muscles on either side of the body should be able to provide equal strength and flexibility. A balanced body will better resist injury under the demands of athletic performance.
