SHARC – Short Arc Technique

SHARC or Short Arc Technique has been developed over 15 years and focuses on the major joint complexes of the body. It is a method of stabilizing joints, greatly reducing pain and irritation, which can lead to injury. It is also a great way to increase the ballistic strength and speed of the body, enhancing sports performance like no other technique. In one short study with a basketball team, the sprint times and standing jump heights were significantly increased for all but one player. As it turned out, that player had a lower back problem that needed further attention before the results could be obtained. SHARC has application in many types of injury, sports performance, and any musculoskeletal condition where balance, strength, and speed are compromised.

Rate Coding and Fiber Recruitment
Raise the Rate!

Rate Coding is the number of impulses of the motor nerve per unit time. It is directly related to how quickly the muscle will respond, and how fast the muscle will contract repeatedly. Fiber Recruitment is what percentage of the muscle gets a signal. It is directly related to the strength of the contraction. When both rate coding and fiber recruitment are maximized, the joint those muscles move becomes more stable, able to move in the physiologic pattern without deviating. The muscles are also able to react more quickly to stress in any direction, further stabilizing the joint and protecting it from injury. We want to raise the rate of rate coding and fiber recruitment so that the muscle gets more signal faster. When these two factors are in full expression, the athlete is much quicker, more ballistic, and stronger. I have used SHARC at the Olympics and with professional athletes with great success. It is a great technique just prior to competition.

SHARC – 短弧技術

SHARC或短弧技術已經發展了15年,專注於身體的主要關節複合體。這是一種穩定關節的方法,大大減少疼痛和刺激,從而導致傷害。這也是提高身體彈道力量和速度的一個很好的方式,不像其他技術一樣提高運動表現。在一項與籃球隊的短期研究中,除了一名球員之外,所有人的短跑時間和站立跳高都顯著增加。事實證明,該球員有一個較低的背部問題,需要進一步的關注,才能獲得結果。 SHARC可以應用於各種傷害,運動表現以及平衡,力量和速度受到損害的任何肌肉骨骼狀況。
