This unique package introduces you to the entire CST system, all three rings. Don't let this chance pass you by!
The package includes:
Today, individuals, young and old, are placing undue strain on their joints and muscles through vigorous and improper workouts, and are hurting themselves more than ever before. Popular fitness activities such as yoga, Pilates, weight-lifting, cycling, tennis, soccer and others have immense physical benefits, but can lead to arthritis, joint and ligament tears, joint pain, and muscle strains.
Scott Sonnon, co-founder of RMAX International, USA National Team Coach and International Martial Arts Champion, developed Circular Strength Training® (CST), as a unique three-ring health and fitness system designed for people of all ages and abilities. Sonnon’s Health First and Forever approach, intended to protect joints and muscles, has been successfully used by hundreds of thousands of people around the world for over 20 years now.
CST’s “prehab” formula of pain-free mobility, dynamic flow movment and natural athleticism is designed to prevent physiological damage and reduce future joint pain. The three rings of CST can be performed individually, or as a complete program to achieve the best possible results. The three rings are:
Ring #1: Intu-Flow® Mobility Wellness
CST uses a total “vocabulary” of joint mobility drills to ship nutrition, lubrication and shock absorption to the active joints for optimal efficiency, rapid recovery, and pain and injury prevention. Unlike pathologically-based mobilization methods which are based upon a “trauma lens” of movement, CST is based upon developmental neurophysiology for the organization of joint mobility drill sequencing called Intu-Flow. This flowing, intuitive harmony of uncomplicated movement, structural body alignment, and simple breathing, assesses and addresses areas of weakness. Intu-Flow brings needed nutrition to connective tissue to “oil the joints” and revive natural abilities and movement. Intu-Flow provides:
- Deep relaxation and tension release
- Increased focus and concentration
- Enhanced joint mobility and sensory awareness
- Superior athletic performance
Ring #2: Prasara Yoga (Six Degrees of Freedom)
CST uses the “toolbox” of body-weight movements (from yoga to martial arts) in order to “clean the slate” of the over-specializations (compensations) which result from life, injury, attitude and each and every successful exercise/skill performed in a prior cycle. Named Prasara Flow Yoga, this Compensatory Movement™ Technique unloads the functional opposite of any repeated movement in order to preserve benefits and prevent drawbacks. Prasara Yoga provides counterbalance to the body through dynamic flow yoga, compensating for positions adopted during daily routines or prior activities. Prasara Yoga’s Six Degrees of Freedom are:
- Heaving: Moving up and down
- Swaying: Moving left and right
- Surging: Moving forward and back
- Pitching: Tilting up and down
- Yawing: Turning left and right
- Rolling: Tilting side to side
Ring #3: Clubbell® Athletics (Swinging Weights)
CST involves more than mere compression to stimulate adaptation in progressive resistance. Clubbell swinging - the oldest fitness tool and the first martial art in ancient Russia, Persia and India - combines traction to strengthen not just muscle but also connective tissue protecting the joints while building strength. In addition, since the Clubbell is swung, torque allows force production to increase exponentially rather than arithmetically; instead of adding plates (conventional resistance training), the displaced center of mass swung twice as fast produces four times the force. Use of RMAX’s patented “weighted bats” breaks up restrictive adhesions and calcium deposits around joints, releases bound tension, generates energy and vitality, increases bone density, and prevents injury. Clubbell Athletics:
- Advocates swinging moderate weights instead of lifting heavy weights
- Provides three dimensions of resistance
- Delivers maximum balance of mobility and stability
- Corrects balance of tension on joints and muscles
The Circular Strength Training Tri-Ring Integration allows you to balance work and recovery so that you maximize the effectiveness of your exercise, while accelerating recovery so that you prevent injuries, pain and soreness. Uncover how specifically programming your warm-up, work-out and cool-down determines the percentage of successful results you achieve, and the painful injuries you sustain.
Through life, injury, and attitude, you develop compensations which impede your performance. But also through each and every movement you train. Every exercise is subject to “specific adaptation” - and unless specifically compensated creates first - diminishing returns, then plateau, then regress, followed by pain, injury, illness and eventually death: a process that can happen at an imperceptible crawl, or swiftly and acutely.
Scott Sonnon called upon the work of Dr. Stephen Levin’s biotensegrity, Dr. Nikolai Berstein’s biomechanics, and Drs. Vladimir Frolov’s and Konstantine Buteyko’s respiratory science, when he developed Circular Strength Training to seamlessly integrate joint mobility, multi-planar progressive resistance and compensatory movement. What began as a means for Scott to overcome the genetical obstacles he faced during childhood physical and learning disabilities, has grown exponentially over the past 20 years to become a well-supported system to inform the next generation of exercise physiologists and strength conditioning specialists.
A revolution in “health-first fitness”, Circular Strength Training is a highly useful alternative view of movement exercise. The books and DVDs have won awards, inductions to the hall of fame, and are widely used by universities and colleges, group fitness instructors and personal trainers, strength coaches and professional athletes, martial arts, yoga and Pilates schools, celebrities, actors and performers, doctors, therapists and chiropractors, federal agents, special forces and secret service agencies.
