Pimp Your Strength Program With Movement And Mobility
The Pimp Your Strength Program With Movement And Mobility (PSLP) is a movement and mobility exercise routine designed to increase your overall strength levels while decreasing your risk of injury. It will also allow you to perform better at sports such as weightlifting, power lifting, gymnastics, wrestling, and other similar activities.
In addition to improving your strength levels, the PSLP will improve your flexibility and range of motion. These two factors are very important when performing any type of physical activity.
There are many different types of movements that you can do with various degrees of difficulty and benefit from using these exercises. For example, some people may want to strengthen their legs while others would like to work on their core muscles or even increase their speed and agility.
Some people may want to develop their upper body strength while others may prefer working on their lower body.
One thing that all of these different types of movements have in common is that they require a certain level of coordination and balance. If you don’t possess these skills then it’s going to be difficult for you to complete most of them successfully.
The best way to improve your coordination and balance is through a process known as “neural adaptation”. This means that your central nervous system (CNS) needs time to get used to the new patterns of movement being introduced to it.
If you push yourself too hard while you’re still learning a new exercise then you run the risk of getting hurt.
For this reason, it’s very important that you start off learning these exercises slowly. You don’t have to be overly concerned about how slow you’re going at first because you’re still getting the benefits of learning the movement patterns and your CNS is still adapting.
As you continue to practice and rehearse these patterns, your coordination and balance will naturally get better and better. This is the time when you can start trying to go a little faster without any concern of injury.
Remember that until this process is complete you still have a higher risk of getting hurt if you try to rush things.
Does this mean that if you try to go fast right from the beginning that you’ll get hurt?
Not necessarily. Everyone is different and the main factor contributing to whether or not you get hurt from doing any of these exercises is your current physical condition. If you already have good balance and coordination then you’ll probably be able to start going faster right from the beginning. On the other hand, if you have poor balance and coordination then you may want to take it slow at first until your body adapts.
Now, let’s take a look at some of the important points when performing each movement.
Common Mistakes People Make When Performing The Exercises:
Rushing the movement pattern and not going slow enough at first. This can cause you to fall or otherwise hurt yourself and you may also experience joint pain.
Not having your body properly aligned throughout the movement. This can cause issues with your joints and muscles. Not breathing properly while performing the exercises. This can cause a spike in your heart rate as well as promote muscle fatigue.
General Rules For Performing The Exercises
Breathe out on exertion (example: when lifting the weight or pushing your body up). Some people may want to hold their breath while exerting due to a false belief that this will provide additional strength.
This will only cause you to fatigue quicker and is dangerous for your health (and your muscles won’t work as well). Always breathe in a controlled manner and exhale when exerting.
Stay within your limits. This is especially important for beginners or those with poor coordination.
If you find the exercise to be too easy then simply raise the intensity in a way that’s appropriate for your experience and abilities. If you find it too difficult then lower the intensity or just simply pause and hold the current position for a few seconds (without losing form) and continue from there.
These exercises are intended to improve your strength, flexibility, and balance. If you find that you have an injury of some sort then please don’t do the exercises (or at least not the particular one that’s causing you pain).
If you continue to perform these exercises while injured then you may cause permanent damage.
Breathing Diagrams For Each Movement:
In addition to the written instructions, I’ve also created some diagrams in order to help you along the way.
