The approach recognizes that every client-athlete is an individual with a defining injury history (back issues in this case), base athleticism, trainability and adaptability, and unique anatomy, neurology, psychology, to name a few. Specific topics will be discussed using examples that include densifying neural drive for more strength and speed, mechanostimulation to create specific tissue adaptation, selecting specific programs for specific subcategories of athletes (for example the endurance vs the explosive). Note that these training approaches are not for the average person who is not expert with understanding biological capacity, processes of adaptation, injury mechanisms, migration of stress with posture change, role of fascia and mental focus to name a few.
