The Pre-Flight Checklist: Monitoring Readiness

The Pre-Flight Checklist: Monitoring Readiness

“Omne Trium Perfectum” (everything that comes in threes is perfect) Latin phrase   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, Standards, Movement Signature, and now our Daily Readiness Index. 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 Index 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 Multiplier supporting you with its Regeneration Guidelines. Click Here For: On-Line Daily Readiness...
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...
