- Circular Strength Training
CST is the “flagship” professional certification course at RMAX International, a 18+ hour training examination conducted throughout the 2-day Instructor Certification Seminar. CST was pioneered by Scott Sonnon, and continues to build on his insights to evolve an ever more refined, coherent, cohesive and comprehensive approach to becoming a movement specialist. CST has rapidly emerged as a leader among the premier training modalities in the health / fitness and strength / conditioning arenas.
|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® (”intuitive flow”).|
|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.|
|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.|
