Imagine a training protocol that incorporates every aspect of strength/fitness and flexibility/mobility, that exponentially applies the benefits of modern core training concepts, while utilising all of the recognised strength, fitness, flexibility and mobility exercises, but with a very specific and deliberate focus on a multi-layered system of vital inclusions. An approach employing rising instability and postural manipulation as its progressive base for biomechanical and physiological adaptation, and one which emphasises the referral of loads through the body's principal centres of stability and function in each and every possibility of movement and moment opportunity. One with an inherent capacity towards unlimited progression options, ranging from the seemingly innocuous, to the most insanely extreme. In essence a contradiction to recognised standards, one where its most basic contention is advancement built on instability, and as such opposite to current traditional exercise methodologies which still advocate support and stability, and where the outcomes are just as routine as the methods used are predictable. A puzzling approach, especially when one considers the vastly unpredictable nature and diverse incarnations of functional life, and the limitless scenarios they can and will deliver.
When considering functional training, many stop at the mundane day-to-day routines individuals encounter and must contend with, but do not truly consider those sporting/athletic situations which to many are also a component of everyday living. To be truly adapted, one needs to be occupied in a preparedness rationale dominated by an emerging awareness of the necessity to stimulate maximal adaptation in strength and fitness at all progressions of functionality. A task not achieved by continually trying to "smash" out PB's, using ridiculously non-functional and inappropriate resistances. But rather an objective accessed by relentlessly seeking positions that create more challenging levels of uncertainty, which apply loads to the vital inclusions of posture and core, as well as the individually targeted muscles. Outcomes achieved by performing each exercise selection with rising instability and reducing structured support.
A strength and fitness protocol entirely suited to elite athletes involved in serious sporting pursuits, and also to would-be athletes, aspiring to elite performance, who are aspiring to stronger, fitter and healthier lifestyles. An alternate training approach for those committed to taking their strength and fitness intensities to new heights, by fully testing their physical and psychological tolerances as a more effective means of satisfying training potentials.
The concepts of Bodii training and their associated techniques have undergone an on-going, yet spontaneous evolution in exactly this alternative training style. One which found its origin in one solitary exercise, subsequently sparking a deep curiousity and thorough exploration into all its possible variations and often surprising expansions. Bodii offers creative training alternatives, while continuing to mature in a dynamic and unconventional direction, leaving participants wondering where their next training session is going to lead.
