Progressions are the foundation of the Innovative results fitness program.
They are built to ensure that all clients have their needs met, whether those needs are fat loss, muscle gains, or just to get moving. However it goes deeper than just words on a paper telling the IR Training Team what workout to do. The mechanics of movement progress in the following order, Mobility, Stability, Endurance, Strength, and then Power.
Mobility is first because without it you do not have the range of motion to simply stay grounded enough to create stability, endurance, strength, and power. Imagine having a sprained ankle, the reason why you limp is because all of the swelling has taken any range of motion you had before and made it immobile.
Stability comes second because, now that you are lacking mobility in that hurt ankle you cannot put any pressure on it to stabilize yourself. They go hand in hand, so you must fix one to help the other.
Next on our list is endurance, the reason endurance is so vital for any athlete or person getting in shape is because without the right amount of endurance you can’t push yourself to your maximum limits.
For example, say we have a 300lb guy who realistically should be able to squat a lot of weight due to his own mass, right? Well, if he lacks endurance we could have him do 1 rep with just a little weight, or even his own body weight and he will become fatigued or “gassed out.” Without that endurance to even lift his body weight he cannot build up his relative strength that he will require to become powerful. Before you can be powerful you must first become strong. In order to dramatically increase your strength and power you must build up that endurance, then no measly piece of iron will stand in your way.
