Exercise Mechanics: The Scientific Method

Before we even begin to worry about how many reps to prescribe in a program - we must understand and determine how to do one rep in the first place.

Biomechanics is the study of the application of force on the living structure and RTS considers Exercise Mechanics to be a division of Biomechanics specific to Exercise.

Aerobics to Strength, Function to Aesthetics, Pilates to Powerlifting, are all forms of resistance exercise where FORCE is the common denominator. It is absolutely essential to have a strong fundamental understanding of how the force you prescribe effects the end user.

We don't teach mindless protocols. 

We empower you to make your own decisions.

No cookie-cutter coaching here! RTS teaches individuals to look beyond method names and marketing to find the objective factors; to eliminate bias, and use science as the foundation for all decisions related to exercise!

The goal of the RTS program is objective decision making in the implementation of exercise through the continual assessment of client/patient:

  • Needs
  • Goals
  • Structural idiosyncrasies

To determine:

  • Prescribed motor patterns,
  • Force application,
  • Rate and form of progression
  • Ultimately, risk and benefit!
