Is Loaded Movement Training the Future of Fitness?

Is Loaded Movement Training the Future of Fitness? This article is truly an excellent guide for trainers, who want to be on the cutting edge of fitness, that want to deliver a product and results that allow people to be in life. I have been training my self this way since 1984, and clients this way since 2009. This is at odds with how the body builder personal trainers do things. While my clients can jump into most outdoor sporting events and activities without worry, the body builder carrying superfluous body mass, can’t even think of “going for it.” They are never seen, except in the gym, and unfortunately for performance parameters, frequently in machines. Body building has no place in performance athletic events.

I disagree on the use of barbells, and how useful they are for fascial conditioning, as long as they are used for explosive lifts. We use dumb bells, barbells, body bars, medicine balls, heavy bags, bicycles, ripcore fx, the track and more. Last year a 5′ 10″ 55 year old power cleaned 225, while weighing 215, and then jerked it, and in the same year sprinted a 27 second 200 meter dash, was challenged by weight lifter friends to Romanian dead lift 315, and did it 5 times! This is a lift he hardly ever does, yet could do it on demand. His friends are at least 15 years younger and are more than 25% more massive, and the challengers are not obese people.

My clients jump into all kinds of activities, sports and events from cross country skiing, alpine skiing, white water rafting, fight sports, scale 14ers, adventure racing, tennis and more. I have a 115 lb. very small framed girl, able to take two 40 lb. dumb bells overhead from the floor and does adventure racing, with no pure distance running (another topic for discussion).

Traditional strength training, with a focus on concentric movement, is confined to an occasional set or two, and is never more than an adjunct modality for fitness. The tried and “true” classic “power” (a true misnomer) lifts have their place, just not a big place. In fact, all types of weight lifting take less than 15 minutes, out of an hour of training. I prefer to use my Integrated Full Body Athletic Movement system (IFBAM). I rejuvenate my clients, and they are able to perform amazingly well.

My question for the reader is; why would you still use antiquated and anachronistic training for inferior results, weight loss, health and fitness performance? Get a trainer who can train you to do something athletic and cool, something you can brag about, look at what I did.

I want to congratulate Pete McCall, M.S. as a contributor to the American Council on Exercise  (ACE), for this fine article, that may illuminate the fitness world.
