Neuro Sports Performance and Rehab - Total Golf Fitness Part 4 - Recovering From the Green

Total Golf Fitness Part 4

Denis Thompson, developer of ARPwave, joins Arron Oberholser and the Golf Fitness Academy to demonstrate the simplicity of appropriate recovery utilizing the EVO System.

Just as in loosening, where the appropriate stimulus is applied to prepare the body for the desired performance display, it is equally important to recovery the body after the display. This avoids the stiff and soreness commonly felt after performance training, and playing on the green.

Even utilizing the EVO System all aspects of performance are attended to through Neurological Stimulation.

“We took professional golfer Arron Oberholser through a warm-up, an upper body workout, and a lower body workout in Parts 1-3. And now, along with ARPwave developer Denis Thompson, we will take Arron through what I consider the most important part, the recovery.”

“As we train, or as we play a round of golf, the muscles shorten. What we want to do is immediately bring back its length through recovery.”

“All we are going to do is put the electrodes on Arron’s lower back and have him go through his range of motion exercise (see video), simply rotating from side to side. So what we are doing is taking a muscle that is fatigued and immediately recovering it.”

“It’s important for you to know that when you work out, and you wake up in the morning and you’re not sore, a lot of people think they didn’t get a good workout. In fact, a lot of golfers after playing 18 holes wake up and they are stiff and sore and would have trouble going out the next day. With just 5 seconds on the ARPwave, they would be able to go out the next day.”

“And that is key, for any of you who work out or play any kind of sport. It’s like the pitcher sticking his elbow in a bucket of ice, attempting to take the inflammation away, to start getting ready to play again. Well our pitchers don’t use ice. They just simply relax the muscle and elongate it using the ARPwave.”

“We are mimicking some of the exercises we did in the workout phase, but we are not using any resistance and we are using a very low current. The reason for this is that we don’t want the muscle to contract, we want it to relax.”

“We use this technology for people from all walks of life. If you have pain, you can get rid of pain. If you want to increase your range of motion, you can increase your range of motion”.

“Arron, I know you consider this your secret weapon, so thanks for sharing with us. People are going to look at this and say hey, I can shorten my workouts, I can speed my recovery, I can get loose and play loose . . . . . where can I get this done?”

In Part 1 and 2 we worked on basic upper and lower body golf fitness strengthening exercises with ARPwave guru Jay Schroeder and PGA Pro Arron Oberholser.

In Total Golf Fitness Part 3, we join ARPwave developer Denis Thompson and once again Arron Oberholser for a pre-game warm-up (Get Loose).

“Last year I had a back injury that took me out of a big chunk of the PGA tour, and I found the ARPwave training and recovery protocols through my wife who has been doing them for the last 3 or 4 years. And since nothing else was working, I said fine, I’m going to go see these guys. So they start out doing what they call search and destroy, which is searching for any hot spots and then they have specific protocols to get rid of them. ARPwave stands for Accelerated Recovery Performance wave.”

We have Aaron all hooked up to the ARPwave to do what we call our loosening protocol. We have the electrodes on both sides of the spine and we are going to turn him side to side to test his range of motion. Now remember, Arron is a professional golfer, so he is already going to have a great range of motion. So what we are going to do is relax these muscles to increase his range of motion dramatically. So now, we have turned on the ARPwave so the muscle is relaxed and now you can see he can go to its fullest extremity. And by doing that, for all the weekend golfers, who have sore backs and stiffness, it eliminates that completely.

And the next thing we are going to do is loosen up his hamstrings. For golf, these are the two main loosening protocols, for other activities there are up to 7 body parts. As you can see, he is touching his toes very quickly, and the reason for this is the body is designed to move at high velocity and not low velocity.

When most people think of electrical current, if they’ve been to physical therapy, they think of E-stim (Russian electrical stimulation modality), you think of the muscle going into contraction and shortening. The ARPwave puts the muscle into an eccentric contraction, which is a lengthening contraction, so this instantaneously eliminates any tightness. These Loosening protocols will give the golfer more whip, more speed, and more distance.

In Part 1 we worked on 3 basic upper body exercises. In the video below, you will see ARPwave guru Jay Schroeder once again working with PGA Pro Arron Oberholser, this time concentrating on just two lower body exercises combined with ARPwave technology.

“OK, we’ve moved the ARPwave electrodes to the hamstrings and the triceps, you see, the human body relates by triceps / hamstrings, and Quads / Biceps. So what we want to do is make sure his hamstrings can do the work they are supposed to do now. So by eccentrically elongating the triceps, we’ll allow his hamstrings to do more work.”

“The first exercise we are going to do is called a Russian Lunge, from the lunge position Aaron is going to propel himself into the air and then land in the same position. If he doesn’t, then we terminate the exercise. In order to make it more challenging, we are going to turn up the ARPwave after each repetition (because that’s what friends are for – Ha!).”

“Every repetition he does, we are increasing the load on the ARPwave, until we see him break position, and that is where we terminate that set. You can actually see the look on his face that that was enough.”

Q. “What are you feeling right now?”
A. “When it (ARPwave) sends the signal through, it eccentrically contracts the muscle which sends a signal to my brain…”
Q. “You are out of breath, are we getting cardio too?”
A. “You will get in shape with the ARPwave, just a couple 5 minute segments a day are all you need.”
Q. “Your voice already sounds better, so your recovery time is phenomenal, so your cardio vascular health is good?”
A. “Absolutely.”
Q. “So if you have knee injuries can you still do this?”
A. “Yes sir, you can do variations of this.”

“The next variation of this exercise we call the Speed Russian Lunge, we are going to scissor the legs and we are going to turn up the ARPwave and do 4 on each side. Go!”

“Obviously these exercises don’t look like they belong to a golfer, but what we are doing is training the muscles to be used the way they were intended to be used. No matter if we play golf or we climb rocks, or play volleyball, it doesn’t matter, the same muscles are required to do the same job. We, [Neuro Sports Performance and Rehab] teach them, the muscles, to do that job very efficiently, while you guys as the golf experts teach him how to play golf.”

“We know that the lower body explodes, and then decelerates on the golf swing just like that, so that matches perfectly. And what’s so amazing is that you don’t have to do a lot of this and you’re getting an amazing workout.”

Check out the videos below where ARPwave Guru Jay Schoeder works with professional golfer Arron Oberholser, demonstrating revolutionary training techniques based on ARPwave technology. These basic exercises work not only for golf, but all sports, well at least sports that involve hamstrings and triceps, and quads and biceps.

“While doing upper body conditioning we are still attaching the ARPwave to the lower body (hamstrings) so the muscles of the lower body can elongate, so they can hold position, for stability, so there is no wavering going on, no shifting back and fourth.”

“Three upper body exercises: Rebound Front Delt Raise, Upright Row, Bicep Curl.”

“And the cool thing about this is that we only have to do a few exercises and a few repetitions of them, once you see whats going on.”

“We are working here the anterior deltoid, but in reality we are working all the muscles of the upper torso. Because when you catch a falling load the law of humans necessitates that all muscles turn on proportionately the same as the primary as the primary mover. In other words, all the muscles in his whole thorax, his arm, his shoulder, are all accelerating and decelerating, at a very high rate of speed, and a high load. The 3 pound dumbbell, falling 6 to 10 inches can become 18 pounds, then with the force he puts back into catching it and reversing the action, it can go well up into the 50-60-70 lbs range.”

“It’s just like the golf club, it feels light, but when you are swinging at high speeds, it’s a different story. And you want to prepare in the same manor as you are preparing to decelerate from those extreme velocities.”

“It take a good 3 months to really master these moves without dropping the weight, and obviously, the more you intensify the signal from the ARPwave, the harder it becomes and the more fatigued you’ll get.”

“The way we determine how long and how may reps is when fatigue sets in, when you begin to lose position, that’s when you stop the set.”

“The electrode on the hamstring is there to send a signal to the hamstring to elongate and to create a stable base. The ARPwave will eccentrically contract the muscles, elongating them so they are relaxed, and it sends a signal to the brain, that this is where I want to be when playing golf.”

These were three upper body exercises used along with the ARPwave technology to create golf fitness in just a few minutes a day. Our next post will highlight the lower body exercises to complete this workout.
