Loaded Movement Training with the ViPR®

ACE: Can you briefly describe the concept of loaded movement training? How is it different than traditional resistance training?

Michol Dalcourt: Resistance training is often, and correctly, thought of as the external mass we apply to the human form. With exercise, most of the time in exercise this external mass is moved in a linear direction in a single plane of motion. While linear movements can create tremendous benefits, it is an incomplete stimulus to the entire myofascial network of the human body. Loaded movement training, however, incorporates what may be described as “transitional movement.” 

Most traditional weight-lifting exercises done in the gym occur in only one plane of motion against the downward pull of gravity. But when we think about it, most physical work outside of the gym requires us to move with a mass not only up against gravity, but through it as the mass transitions from one location to another.

Think of the barbell deadlift, which requires sufficient strength to create an upward force to move the barbell off of the floor. Gravity influences the weight by creating the downward pull the lifter has to overcome. Compare that to loading boxes into the back of a moving truck. The basic movement of lifting a box off the ground is the same, but then the box has to transition through gravity to be placed on to the truck. Movement-based resistance training, therefore, combines full-body, task-oriented movement patterns with external loads. It’s important to note that our biology is actually set up to adapt well to the tasks requiring us to move with load.

When engaging in loaded movement training, every time you move, you are integrating the entire structure and the entire body in every movement you do. Every exercise becomes a core exercise, every exercise becomes a strength exercise, and every exercise becomes an agility exercise, which takes into account the movement and energy demands of life and sport.

ACE: What benefits does training with the ViPR provide? Is it specifically designed to support the concept of loaded movement training?

Dalcourt: Loaded movement training emphasizes transitional movements with an external resistance, which can be difficult to do with traditional equipment like a seven-foot barbell or dumbbells, which have a short lever arm. Transitional movements involve integrated action of all joints in the kinetic chain, as they organize and harmonize motion. To be most effective, transitional movements should be task-oriented, full-body movement patterning using a variable load. This means that the individual is using his or her entire body to move from one point to another. Moving the body as a whole reinforces the fundamental principles of chain reaction biomechanics and function. Integrating multiple-joint motions is the biomechanical way to mitigate stress away from localized areas in the body, and introduce stress to the whole system, as it shares

    It really works especially if you combine it with other cardio videos! I
    have been doing it for two months now to lose my stomach fat after having
    my son and it is really paying off now. I can finally see results!

    Are 10min really enough to see some results? I don’t feel any strenght in
    my abs. After I’m done, I just feel something in my lower back and my
    stomach feels flabby as before the workout. I don’t feel that much burn..
    Am I doing something wrong?

    I’m in pretty good shape.. Run 10 miles a week, do a lot of HIIT/interval
    training and ab workouts about 5 times a week. I wanted a quick exercise
    tonight and this video definitely got my abs burning. I did it twice (and
    did the more difficult versions of the exercises) just to get a good ab
    workout, but I can see how this would produce some results.

    Great product for getting in shape, don’t recommend for serious body building, August 11, 2013
    By 

    This review is from: Black Mountain Products Resistance Band Set with Door Anchor, Ankle Strap, Exercise Chart, and Resistance Band Carrying Case (Sports)
    I inherited these from a guy friend who is looking to build muscle mass. They didn’t work for him because of the intensity of his workout, it was too much for the bands. Although, he did get some replaced by the company when they wore out quickly, so kudos to the company. He gave them to me, because my workout isn’t as strenuous, so he thought they would be helpful. And they are great for what I do. I dropped my gym membership because of cost, but still wanted to continue with one of the workouts I took regularly that used resistance bands. (I would use these with a DVD, or exercise class, as the start up guide doesn’t give a lot of information about specific exercises for toning all areas.) These are perfect for what I do, and the variety of equipment they give you is excellent, you can change up your routine easily. When I injured by shoulder (not seriously, just a strain), the yellow and blue bands give an easier workout without adding to the injury, and then I worked my way back up. I’m very happy with them, and they have lasted several months even with almost daily use (full disclosure, there was a week or two where I was too lazy to do anything). If you are looking for more serious workout/weight loss, I recommend adding other workouts to your routine, or getting more heavy duty equipment (although my body building friend told me they worked very well for him, but didn’t last as long with a daily, super intense workout). However, if you are like me and working out isn’t easy to do (lack of motivation), so you stick to what you are able to commit too despite not losing much weight with it, I can recommend a supplement Raspberry Ketone Platinum (2 Bottles) – Clinical Strength – All Natural Fat Burning, Weight Loss, Diet Supplement, 60 capsules – it’s a great fat burner, and helps my workout actually turn around into weight loss and fat loss. I can’t judge the products from the serious trainer point of view, but from the couch potato point of view, the bands are great for toning, and the rasp ketone makes your workout more effective in losing fat.

    Started great but beginning to disappoint, November 9, 2011

    This review is from: Black Mountain Products Resistance Band Set with Door Anchor, Ankle Strap, Exercise Chart, and Resistance Band Carrying Case (Sports)
    I bought these bands to use with Tony Horton’s 10-Minute Trainer. For the most part these are great until you have to do a military press or an overhead tricep curl. These exercises require you to stand on the middle of the band and push all the way up until your arms are fully extended. For these exercises, the bands are too short for me and I worry how long they’ll last if I keep stretching them that far. I’m 6’0″ tall, so someone shorter might not have any problem. If you’re 6′ or taller, I would find something longer because these will disappoint. The B-Line bands used by Tony Horton for P90x and his other videos appear to be roughly twice as long as these.

    These are good quality bands though. The grommets are strong and the clips are metal and thus, less prone to breaking. The door attachment and ankle accessory work fine. The “instruction manual” is a little sparse and simplistic but you can’t expect too much there. Suspiciously, I noticed that none of the exercises show the bands being lifted any higher than shoulder length.

    EDIT: I increased my review to a 4 star after using the bands a while longer and speaking to their customer service. I also got a free orange band for my call. According to customer service the bands can actually stretch safely up to 5 times their original size (their max stretch is about 40 ft. although this makes them unusable). After 3 weeks of overhead use they still show no signs of wear or tear.

    EDIT: Still on the fence about these. After 6 weeks of use I had to get the red band replaced after seeing several tears appear. Now I’m seeing tears in the black band and one tear in the new red band already. As far as I know I’m not using them inappropriately but I may have to go ahead and return the whole set.
