ALL EXERCISE IS NOT THE SAME!
There are two types or families of exercise: Global Training and Segmental Training.
An example of global training is a classic squat. An example of segmental training is the ELDOA™ for L5-S1.
There is another level for both types of exercise. We call that Analytical or Qualitative Global Training and Analytical or Qualitative Segmental Training.
An example of an analytical global exercise is the squat with many Factors of Progression. An example of an analytical segmental muscle-building exercise is reinforcement of the gluteus medius, distal fibers.
In all of our programming – REGEN, performance, rehabilitation, pre-season camps and wellness – Legacy puts an emphasis on this type of training system.
Metabolic Training is a combination of both analytical and global exercises in an up-beat tempo training environment. Work output is high. Rest and recovery is minimal to create the desired metabolic effect: loss of body fat • improved resting heart rate • improved cardiac output • improved metabolism.
Legacy designs personal programs combining all types of training based upon the goals of a client and the health of that person.
People are concerned about continuing to exercise when injured. There are injuries that require a certain rest time frame. If working with a trainer who understands the anatomy biomechanics of the body, one should be able to exercise safely with an injury.
