FORSTER STRUCTURE PROGRAM ONLINE© STRENGTH, FLEXIBILITY, Advanced Recovery
Honed over the last thirty five years in the results driven world of elite athletics, and every day with clients just like you, we know that the essential foundation of exercise is the FORSTER STRUCTURE PROGRAM© Strength and Flexibility Training. The vital component of fitness is healthy resilient joints and muscles, with increasing flexibility and strength to adapt to life, sport, and aging. Flexibility: During exercise our muscles shorten; therefore, the connective tissue must be stretched to maintain full range of motion and good posture. As we age, connective tissue naturally tightens and begins to lead to functional limitations. These limitations lead to altered mechanics of the joint and eventually joint wearing (Arthritis). It is the one aspect of aging we can reverse. Discover the safest and most effective stretching techniques to help you perform better, prevent injury, improve your range of motion, and aid in your recovery from exercise. In this video you will learn: • The safest and most effective stretches for each part of your body • How to incorporate a safe and effective stretching routine into your active lifestyle • The importance of stretching in developing healthy joints and muscles for life • How stretching aids in the recovery process and helps to prevent injury • The performance benefits of a proper stretching routine in sport and training • How stretching improves your range of motion, improving athletic performance
THE COMPLETE FORSTER STRUCTURE PROGRAM
The Complete Forster Structure Program© is the foundation of all of our personal training and exercise programs. The Forster Structure Program will bring your fitness to a peak as you progress through the comprehensive phases of Periodization training. Following your head-to-toe Structural Exam performed by a Physical Therapist, you will receive a personalized training program for your use at home or in your own fitness center, as well as four personal training sessions at PHASE IV to instruct you in core strength, posture exercises, Periodization weight training, stretching, and plyometric exercises specific to each phase. This program will start by providing the basic stretching and strengthening exercises required to prevent injury and provide the structural essentials to remain healthy and maintain joint function and stability. This will lead to efficiency and injury prevention for sport and general health. Delivered with the professional guidance of an experienced Sports Physical Therapist & Exercise Physiologist, this program includes the essential exercises necessary to achieve functional and balanced joint stability, advanced flexibility, and core strength.
FORSTER STRUCTURE PROGRAM© STRETCHING AND ROLLING FOR RECOVERY
Stretching is the most effective self-recovery technique you can do to make a very significant contribution to the adaptive process you seek in training: increased fitness. Because your physiology adapts to training, a disciplined active recovery program is essential. No one ever became stronger during a workout, it is in the recovery period when we become fitter. Following periods of hard work, fatigue and an initial decrease in performance occur before the body becomes stronger or more efficient. However, this occurs only if time for recovery is provided. Focusing on the recovery of the structural systems is critical. In runners, limitations of the structural system (tendons, bone, fascia) to withstand the rigors of the training load necessary to peak the metabolic systems (energy production) is often their demise. Stretching sessions before and particularly after light recovery workouts are more productive when unencumbered by the tightness that would otherwise occur following hard workouts. In this way your stretching efforts go further toward elongating connective tissue and helping tendons and ligaments heal and grow stronger. Discover the safest and most effective stretching techniques to help you perform better, prevent injury, improve your range of motion, and aid in your recovery from exercise.

PHASE IV PEAKRIGHT© Comprehensive Periodization Strength Training
Periodization strength training breaks the training program into cycles (or periods) where fitness is developed in a scientifically rational sequence. After about six-to-eight weeks of the same activity the body becomes stronger and can handle the load without experiencing stress; performance will then fade if the exercise stimulus is not altered in such a way as to create new stress on the body, and peak hormone production again. Your PHASE IV team is using state-of-the-science training methods to set up your plan of Periodized Strength Training. Matching the requirements of your sport, you will be educated in proper strength development, stretching, warm up, cool down, and aggressive recovery techniques. The basic tenant of Periodization is that all exercise is futile, if rest and recovery periods are not provided. You will gain the knowledge of when to workout, and when to rest and recover to excel in your sport. In short, you will learn to utilize science to improve your strength and performance, while avoiding injury, and preserving your body. This carefully orchestrated program of progressive resistance exercises to strengthen the bigger muscle groups with and a routine that favors developing strength and not size, will positively impact your power to body weight ratio. This is a comprehensive science based strength training program of carefully chosen exercises that relate to building strength for running, impacting your performance, and achieving your running goals!
