Know Thyself: Daily Readiness Manager

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. Our ability to function and perform is limited by how well we can recover from a multitude of seen and unseen stressors, in addition to managing ground reaction forces that move up the body and cause injury problems. At Upright movement, we have previously addressed these limits with our Regeneration Guidelines, Daily Regeneration Monitor, Daily Readiness Index, Standards, Movement Signature, and now our Daily Readiness Manager. We feel that UpRight Movement has a responsibility to you and thus we are constantly evolving to be better, so that you’re better, and able to pass that “better” along to others in your life. We think of the Daily Readiness Manager as a “Pre-Flight Checklist” that can help you achieve the results you want. Aid your Recovery, Health and manage Stress so you can feel better, move better, and perform better! The Pillars of long lasting change are: Mindset, Recovery, Nutrition/Hydration, and Movement. UpRight Movement is a Force...

Personal Success Meter: For Your Health, Fitness, and Life

“Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.” Dale Carnegie   Generally, fitness is assessed in four key areas: aerobic fitness, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and body composition. UpRight Movement takes fitness Further. The UpRight Movement program goals are to optimize human locomotion, health, and fitness (utilizing sound fundamental, transitional, and functional movement patterns balanced with recovery). This helps restore True fitness: the ability to consistently thrive and function within the demands of your environment.   “The best doctors in the world are Doctor Diet, Doctor Quiet, and Doctor Merryman.” Jonathan Swift   We view fitness, like life, as a big picture, long term process… So we created a checklist to help us all measure our daily progress toward success. We understand how it feels to be busy, and know that sometimes you don’t have more than a minute or two in your day to check in with your wellness and fitness goals. The Pillars of long lasting change are: Mindset, Recovery, Nutrition/Hydration, and Movement.

The Pre-Flight Checklist: Monitoring Fatigue

The Pre-Flight Checklist: Monitoring Fatigue

“A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.” Albert Einstein   Stress was originally coined by Hans Selye in 1956, describing the general adaptation syndrome where the initial response, the alarm stage, is negative, with the physiological state of the organism decreasing following the imposition of stress shown in the image below. A more comprehensive model of the physiological responses to training stimuli is the fitness-fatigue theory. Proposed in 1982 by Banister, the fitness-fatigue model argues that different training stresses result in different physiological responses, particularly using an individual’s baseline of training to better quantify fitness (a positive adaptation) versus fatigue (a negative adaptation). How it works: The framework takes your fitness level and subtracts your fatigue to estimate performance. The fluctuations in your daily performance show your fatigue. See this study published in the Strength and Conditioning Journal for more on the fitness-fatigue model. When quantifying fatigue, it’s importance to look at two different types of data. The first is what you did to recover. UpRight Movement wants to know your mindset, how you are breathing, how you slept, what you ate, how you managed stress, and if you used secondary recovery tools (e.g., cold plunge, massage, etc.). Next we want to measure your readiness by looking at: Outcome-Based Measurements (e.g., CNS (Central Nervous System) Finger Tap Test) Physiological-Based Measurements (e.g., HRV (Heart Rate Variability), Lab Analysis etc.) Subjective-Based Measurements (e.g., Fatigue, Daily Readiness Monitor, Daily Regeneration Monitor, Daily Readiness Index) UpRight Movement is a Force Multiplier supporting your results safely and efficiently through its precision approach, which respects the several essential...
