Rotation is the fundamental essence of human movement. This is the case whether you are rotating your torso to the right and left, walking, running or simply raising your arms. There are no straight lines in the human body - all joints articulate with some degree of rotation. It only makes sense that you should train your body to achieve its highest movement capabilities through Rotational Movement Training®.
Rotational Movement Training® (also referred to as RMT®) is designed to unify, strengthen, and balance the body while educating it to move smarter with greater efficiency and athleticism. RMT® does this by combining the body’s rotational movements with specialized equipment, compound integrated movement patterns, and skill based high intensity exercises.
RMT® incorporates continuous circular/spiraling movement patterns, promoting communication and connection between the muscles, tendons, connective tissues (fascia) and the joints within your body. If you imagine a wheel, the periphery spins much faster than the center but they are fully connected. In order to maximize your athletic ability, you must integrate your core with the rest of your body in similar fashion.
The better integrated your body is, the more effectively you can express total body strength from your core throughout your entire body. This means your Base of Support (BOS) is better able to maintain the balance of your Center of Gravity (COG) enabling you to produce more powerful movement.
RMT® makes use of specific training tools such as the WeckMethod RMT® Club and RMT® Ropes. Learning to manipulate these tools with bilaterally symmetrical patterns teaches you how to move your entire body with unity. Every joint throughout your body’s kinetic chain must rotate with precise coordination to achieve the most productive outcome and these tools give you the essential feedback to ensure you reach this goal.
The movement patterns used in Rotational Movement Training® closely relate to those used in sports and everyday life activities. Training this way prepares your body to execute movements with greater ease and fluidly to increase the power and explosiveness of the movements while decreasing the risk of injury.
RMT® ties everything together and effectively reduces power leakages caused by dis-integrated and inefficient movement. No matter what your sport or activity is, you will perform better with Rotational Movement Training®.
