SHARC Technique

SHARC 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 signals 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 技术 已经发展了15年,主要集中在身体的主要联合复合体。这是一种稳定关节的方法,大大减少疼痛和刺激,从而导致伤害。它也是增加身体弹道力量和速度的一个好方法,像其他技术一样提高运动表现。在一项与篮球队的短期研究中,除了一名球员之外,所有球员的短跑时间和站立跳高都显着增加。事实证明,该球员有一个较低的背部问题,需要进一步注意才能获得结果。 SHARC 可应用于许多类型的伤害,运动表现以及平衡,力量和速度受到损害的任何肌肉骨骼状况。
