This package contains the following programs:
- Front Rack
- Olympic Lifting Lower Body and Spine
- Overhead Flexibility
Mastering The Front Rack Position
Front Rack is a technique, which allows to place the bar in favorable position. When thinking of the front rack the following lifting techniques come to mind. Not having the proper Front Rack form, prevents many lifters from reaching their true potential. Years ago coaches drilled the techniques with naked bar or a stick, for many sessions. There was a belief that eventually proper technique will be established. Unlike standard relaxed stretching techniques commonly used in lifting programs, our program employs Zaichik Stretching techniques. Zaichik Stretching approach is different. Each muscle is targeted individually. At the same time using action vs action approach, stretch reflex is avoided. Avoiding the stretch reflex allows to eliminate the pain of stretching
Overhead Shoulder Flexibility
Since a downward arm movement is very powerful, many muscles work in various ranges. They all need to be stretched properly. Majority of athletes try to get the overhead movement by pulling the arm overhead or worst behind the head, as hard as they can. This is rather painful and more often than not causes chronic inflammation in various tissues, including biceps tendon and suprispinatus tendon. Our proven program isolates each muscle of the shoulder joint and of the shoulder girdle. Every muscle action is used against it's own action to quickly create space. The whole procedure is fast and free of stretch reflex pain.
