Core Principles

Once you have a general idea of the fitness levels required, and the areas which need work, a program must be developed to achieve these goals. This requires an understanding of the basic training principles. The following will serve as a basis for developing a rational program:

  • Regularity - Training requires a schedule. Just as proper training increases efficiency, inactivity decreases fitness.
  • Warm-up/Stretch - Every exercise session should begin with a period of warming up and stretching muscles. Not only does this serve to increase blood flow for improved delivery of nutrients and removal of wastes, but also improves the efficiency of muscle contracture. There is evidence that the ligaments and tendons also benefit and become more resistant to injury.
  • Specificity - Training programs should aim to improve the performance of a given task. This consists of repetition of exercises designed to improve the neuromuscular sequences for smoothness and efficiency. The exercises are made up of work loads on the muscle groups involved in performing the task.
  • Overload - Work overload is an effective technique which calls for giving a muscle group a level of work designed to cause momentary failure. This is necessary to build strength.
  • Progression - This is an extension of the overload principle. It calls for increasingly demanding levels of activity over time. As a basic rule, when an individual is able to perform a task without momentary failure, the load should be increased by about 5%.

The Mastermoves core muscle programs are based on the following natural core principles:

  • Conditioning
  • Relaxation
  • Flexibility
  • Coordination
  • Strength
  • Endurance
  • Speed

These natural principles are integrated in all 7 of the Mastermoves fitness programs:
  • Body Conditioning
  • Body Relaxation
  • Body Flexibility
  • Body Coordination
  • Body Strength
  • Body Endurance
  • Body Toning

Initially, you practice each program individually until you achieve your fitness goals. Later, you will practice all of the programs together in a weekly routine - a different program for each day of the week.

I love it! I have been using Mastermoves now for almost a year and I haven’t missed one single day of exercise. My “gym” now consists of 2 tools that are both portable and easy to use. I can do my exercises anywhere any time -15 min. twice a day is a manageable exercise program for my busy life style.
