Performance is the word of the day. Performance can mean different things to different people and today we discuss what performance means to you and your body. It all comes back to efficiency, when you are performing well you’re highly efficient.

There are five elements of efficiency –

  1. No Pain.
  2. Breathing.
  3. Posture.
  4. Precision.
  5. Relax.

Now let’s break each one down a little more.

No Pain – This means that you’re able to move without any pain. A body that is performing well doesn’t hurt or struggle and when you feel pain that means something has failed. Joints are hugely important and when they move well the muscles associated with those joints move well. Pain will cause you to limit your range of motion and develop poor movement patterns. To help eliminate pain practice “quality of movement” and “body weight work.” Learn to move without any pain and then think about adding weight. Start slow with a shorter range of motion and add it in slowly.   

Breathing – Breathing drives movement and it should lead movement. Your breath should be the first thing you consider. Holding your breath can build tension and limit your movement. Learning to breath will greatly improve your performance. Also breathing can help your stress levels and blood pressure go down.  

Precision – This means you hit the target. Are you moving the muscles that need to move in order to complete the task at hand? If you’re doing a bench press you want to make sure the chest muscles and arm muscles are the ones that are doing most of the work. If you feel it in your face and neck when you bench press, then you might not be moving with precision.  

Posture – The spine is an energy transfer area so having it inline is paramount for connecting every movement. Good posture is as upright and dynamic as possible, meaning your head is above your shoulders and you’re mobile. Good posture leads to flexibility and good effective motion.     

Relax – Only exert as much effort/force as you need and nothing more. When you put it all together you shouldn’t be working harder than you need to. Don’t waste energy tightening every muscle in your body and screaming to do a bicep curl. Relax, breath, move which muscles need to perform the movement and only tighten the muscles involved.
