CFR Training Program – a progressive methodology designed to address three vital elements: FLEXIBILITY, CARDIOVASCULAR ENDURANCE, and STRENGTH. Additionally, it incorporates MOBILITY, a blend of both strength and flexibility. Recognizing the prevalent sedentary nature of the modern intelligent individual’s lifestyle, we have identified the core issue that affects our generation – POSTURE. Our immediate priorities are three key objectives: ENHANCE POSTURE ALIGNMENT, OPTIMISE MOVEMENT, and ADVANCE STRENGTH TRAINING.
The CORRECTIVE, FUNCTIONAL, and RESISTANCE (CFR) sequence appears to provide a solution to issues present in various training methodologies throughout history.
CORRECTIVE -In the CORRECTIVE phase, the focus is on identifying tight and weak muscle components affecting posture, often the root causes of posture deviations. Once identified, a tailored CORRECTIVE PROGRAM is designed to release and lengthen tight muscles while activating weaker ones.
FUNCTIONAL – Moving on to FUNCTIONAL, the second step, the aim is to enhance movement functionality. This involves synchronised postures merged with precise exercise motions. The ten fundamental movement types – including squatting, bending, lunging, and more – collectively form the basis of exercise. The FUNCTIONAL program prioritises movement integration and initiation, encompassing essential cardiovascular performance aspects.
RESISTANCE- Resistance, the final yet pivotal aspect of CFR, centres around STRENGTH TRAINING as the cornerstone of fitness. It underscores the importance of augmenting foundational strength through the application of the progressive overload principle. However, achieving this requires a balanced approach to training variables such as INTENSITY, FREQUENCY, and DURATION.
