Know Thyself: Daily Readiness Manager

“Heed these words, you who wish to probe the depths of Nature: If you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither will you find it outside. If you ignore the wonders of your own house, how do you expect to find other wonders? In you is hidden the Treasures of Treasures. Know Thyself and you will know the Universe and the Gods.” The Oracle At Delphi   Minimize Injuries, Maximize Performance Intelligent solutions seeking out marginal gains: Those one percent differentiators that will take you from good to great.   The primary limiters of human physical movement and performance is our biological state and how well we interact with the ground and gravity.

Unlock Your Potential

“Look to the nervous system as the key to maximum health.” Galen   UpRight Movement is now affiliated with Halo Neuroscience. Because movement is about skill development, we are partnering with Halo Neuroscience to stimulate your nervous system and help you enhance your movement skills. Halo Sport, the first product from Halo Neuroscience, applies the science of neurostimulation to athletic training. Designed to integrate seamlessly into your workout, Halo Sport stimulates the brain’s motor cortex during training to accelerate improvements in strength, skill, and explosiveness. This scientific process is called Neuropriming. In essence, pairing Halo Sport with training makes practice more productive for the athlete. Halo Sport was developed after an exhaustive review of a decade of scientific research, and rigorous testing with thousands of users by their team of experienced neuroscientists and engineers. Halo Sport is designed to the highest standard of engineering, incorporating Halo’s extensive patented technology for reliability, usability, and effectiveness. Scientifically, Neuropriming with Halo Sport places the brain’s motor cortex in a temporary state of hyperplasticity, or hyperlearning. When paired with athletic training, Halo Sport facilitates the development of stronger, more optimized neuromuscular output. Neuropriming refines the brain’s ability to learn and adapt to athletic training, which allows athletes to achieve results faster. A Neuropriming session runs for 20 minutes. Learning benefits last for about the following 60 minutes. For best results, most athletes begin their Neuropriming session during their warm-up then transition to training, feeding the brain deliberate, quality, and intense repetitions. Athletes unable to use Halo Sport while training, such as swimmers in a pool, complete their entire Neuropriming session during a warm-up. The...
Build your Grit like the SEALs

Build your Grit like the SEALs

“Grit is sticking with your future day in, day out and not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years.” Angela Duckworth   grit ɡrit/ noun   1.  courage and resolve; strength of character.   What we can learn from, the SEALs and the research on how to have grit:   1. Purpose and meaning. It’s easier to be persistent when what we’re doing is tied to something personally meaningful. 2. Make it a game. It’s the best way to stay in a competitive mindset without stressing yourself out. 3. Be confident — but realistic. See the challenges honestly but believe in your own ability to take them on. 4. Prepare, prepare, prepare. Grit comes a lot easier when you’ve done the work to make sure you’re ready. 5. Focus on improvement. Every SEAL mission ends with a debrief focusing on what went wrong so they can improve. 6. Give help and get help. Support from others helps keep you going, and giving others support does the same. 7. Celebrate small wins. You can’t wait to catch the big fish. Take joy where you can find it when good times are scarce. 8. Find a way to laugh. Rangers, SEALs, and scientists agree: a chuckle can help you cope with stress and keep you going.   SEAL Mental Performance Angela Duckworth on Grit We view fitness, like life, as a big picture, long term process… So in order to upgrade how you feel, move and perform it is essential to upgrade your practice.

One Arrow, One Life: Intention and Goals

One Arrow, One Life: Intention and Goals

“An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that its going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming.” Unknown   An aspect of mindfulness is to set your intention. When you’re a fast-acting multitasker, your mind can become invaded by the thoughts and responsibilities you’re trying to keep track of. While these goals are important to keep organized, you can deal with the onslaught of to-dos by zoning in on a point of focus. Do this by setting your intention each morning and staying mindful of what matters most that day. For more: see setting your intention. UpRight Movement helps to support the positive practice of  Your “INTENTION”, with its newest Intention handout. Improve your Mindset and make progress toward your goals by leveraging UpRight Movement Principles.
