Manual Resistance (MR) training is a partner resisted strength training modality that is as good and in some instances A BETTER TRAINING MODALITY than is conventional training modalities. A training partner, rather than a bar or a selectorized weight stack, provides the resistance. This modality of training could be incorporated into your regular workouts or in situations where there is no or a lack of strength training equipment, apparatus and/or facilities (i.e. deployed military units in the field of combat, home-based healthcare, on vacation, or on the road traveling). Other circumstances where Manual Resistance training would have practical application would include settings where large groups are being trained in a very limited time with minimal set up (i.e. in-season sport teams) and/or rehab settings (i.e. where range of movement is limited by pain).
This 30 minute Instructional DVD provides a detailed explanation of manual resistance upper and lower torso exercises. Video footage provides further clarification so as correct positioning of the spotter and lifter is visually demonstrated and explained. Also included are three MR workout routines, instructional points, training modifications and much more. This instructional DVD will provide the health care practitioner all the information necessary in implementing a Manual Resistance program that is Prudent, Productive, Practical & Purposeful.
