Some fun & effective work yesterday with @purmotion_official
Purmotion at Siege Athletics. @siegeathleticsny
Women's UFC # 1 Flyweight Contender, Katlyn Chookagian @blondefighter
, Noah & I worked many of the movements created by the Purmotion Team & by Founder of PM Jorge Bonnet. The PM PurCombat Division is underway.
For years I have tried to create a multitude of vectors that would translate to fighting arts & do so beyond that of bilaterally symetrical, sagittal plane, vertical vector movement patterns. I am not discounting these movements for foundational strength. However, Purmotion allows me to work multitudes of vectors that not only translate at the musculoskeletal & neuromuscular levels, but I propose mentally as well as the athletes can further connect with imagery the performance protocol to the fight specific skill.
Perhaps of greatest significance, whether it's the Purmotion, AirFit, Cyclone 52/100, Wishbone, Renegade, Bars, Clean & Jerk, Joust (one of my favorites) the Mop & so forth, movements can be applied effectively & with no collateral damage to the joints!
I am confident that Purmotion can help advance athletic performance, particularly fight performance & this is why I have & will continue to make this an integral part of performance training protocols.
I often hear, Keep it Simple Stupid KISS, by this definition, sometimes keeping it simple Stupid, is stupid. It's actually simple to not force fight-sports athletes I work with to master the backsquat, barbell dead or full clean & jerk as examples, especially when they have already had 15 surgeries on areas central for the application of these movements & when having limited time in camp. Once more, these traditional lifts are excellent but I like to expand on their translation.
I am using the Purmotion Cyclone 100 to try some core variations & Wishbone working some unilateral leg drive 45 degrees up an into an opponent. Katlyn using the Wishbone from the balls of the foot, driving up & forward & The Arifit for a challenging Plank.
Purmotion is a proud partner with FightScience Inst.
