Professional Approach

Written by Travis Allan


Webster: By Definition
Thought = Reasoning Power
Process = A series of actions or operations directed toward a particular result.

This is something I apply to every treatment and every workout while always considering my clients’ objectives. While I appreciate the fact that protocols may be great in professions like the army where structure, rules and order need to be followed, when dealing with the human body I cannot afford to be this rigid. Protocols don’t always work when dealing with a unique and evolving system. I must know the “why” behind what I am doing and the choices I make. Rules of the exercise should always be trumped by the rules of the body; what does the structure; skeleton allow and what are the range of motion opportunities for the muscular system. This can vary from one day to the next, depending on the quality and quality of communication between the muscles, central nervous system and brain. I use these specifics, tailoring programs, building each exercise and appropriately progressing the client and the exercise accordingly in each and every session.

Muscle Activation Techniques and the Resistance Training Specialist programs have given me the skills to do so.

A failure to apply the above could lead to a violation of muscular and structural limits resulting in injury to muscles, ligaments and joints.

As an exercise specialist, likes, beliefs and training bias cannot come into my decision making. I must always have a rationale behind my choices, consider and reconsider the information, always ensuring my client’s safety whilst promoting their health and reaching their set out objectives.

“It is historical continuity that maintains most assumptions,
not repeated assessments of their validity”
-Edward de Bono

Nothing should be automatic.

  1. Hey! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to give it a look. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Superb blog and outstanding design.

  2. In the great scheme of things you actually receive an A+ for effort and hard work. Exactly where you actually confused me ended up being on your details. As it is said, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be more accurate in this article. Having said that, permit me inform you just what did give good results. The writing is certainly incredibly engaging and that is possibly why I am taking an effort in order to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, although I can see a leaps in logic you make, I am not really confident of how you appear to connect your ideas that help to make the actual conclusion. For the moment I will subscribe to your point however wish in the future you actually connect your dots better.
