Methodology

Based on 4 typical phases

PlyoMATRIX® methodology is based on 4 typical phases that every individual following the program will go through.

First phase

During initial phase of training balance, coordination, elasticity and stability will ensure that muscles and tissue are prepared for the later program. Stimulation of brain activity creates new body own sensor motoric, enhances the existing nerve system and builds new oriented muscle and joint functions.

Secondary phase

As balance has become a second nature again, being an intrinsic part of your bodies every movement, it is time to introduce an additional training dimension. Note that none of the training’s characteristics are dropped at any phase of PlyoMATRIX®.

 

Final phase

At this training stage you, in fact your body with amplified brain and nerve activity in conjunction with rebuild function of fine muscle fibers, are able to employ body own automatic coordination to the full. During the final phase, with again not dropping any of the aforementioned training characteristics, the remaining and definitely one of the most valuable training attribute can be added.

 

All-inclusive effect of training phase

The all inclusive effect is a combination of the aforementioned freely selectable characteristics. The result is a reproducible overall effect of a perfectly tuned fusion of power and speed, with free to be defined aerobe and anaerobe results.

iQQuip’s® revolutionary new training method accomodates and combines no less than 7 training characteristics, and all with a functional focus.

1

Balance

first your body will rediscover its 3D static and dynamic balance when training using a simple stable functional basis with two feet in a closed chain position.
2

Coordination

the dynamic movement and proprioception enhance your full 3D coordination: the sense of the relative position of one’s own parts of the body and strength of effort being employed in movement. This is sometimes referred to as the “sixth sense” and can best be described as muscle chains being in constant flow with perfect timing, and so-called power-drifting, and again a true functional motion.
3

Elasticity

increasing mobility and flexibility of all tissues including facies sliding in functional muscle chains. The parts in chains with least flexibility are first stretched, and above all the right stretch of passive and active tissue occurs in cooperative function.
4

Stability

the sequence and manner of movements result in an increase of functional central core stability in caudally closed chain. This again leads to cooperating shoulder and arm core stability and simultaneously to a correct transfer of active muscle structures that goes along with a regulated support of passive joint structures and weak tissue. In addition, a special effect area is created with a closed-eyes training increasing the proprioception and neuromuscular facilitation in additional function.
5

Power

subject of this training dimension are eccentric and concentric aspects. The extreme level of power needed to convert from an eccentric to a concentric motion, passing through the critical but with the equipment trainable zero force moment, fortifies the ventral strength of the shoulder joint, in full functional patterns. Pure power training is feasible in slow power mode.
6

Speed

controlling acceleration and deceleration of your movement allows for a super slow velocity training mode. Here you can reach highest levels of fine-tuned forced fast power training. With a clear focus on muscle and weak tissue functional training, especially related to white muscle fibers you protect weak tissues and facies structures.
7

Endurance

the latter attribute is the combination of the above-mentioned freely selected adaptable characteristics and speaks for itself. The combination lead to a controlled and reproducible overall effect of a perfectly tuned fusion of power and speed training. There are no limits in defining anaerobe and aerobe results. PlyoMATRIX™ offers a highway to success and delivers a security of outcome.
