After 20 years of his own track career, Adarian Barr set out to share his passion and knowledge of movement with the next generation. Kicking off in 1995 at Chico State University, he worked with athletes of every skill level and history. After some time, it was clear that the default practices of the track and field world were flawed, and further more the fitness industry as a whole. The common practices then and now provide little to no improvement for a client's natural abilities and simultaneously introduce avoidable injury. A series of experiments with the conventional gear used by his students set a path for a series of breakthroughs that led to a complete overhaul of the movement paradigm. Whatever canons needed to be torn down were removed, all best practices questioned. Using nature's design at its base, Adarian was able to codify movement into core principles that provided infinite configurations. There is no one way of doing a lift, a pull, a push, or even how to run. It all comes down to the question "What are you trying to achieve?"
At Barruning these concepts have given birth the humble yet cutting edge programming and tools to re-establish a connection between the athlete and his own chassis.
PALO is a tool and stretching regimen that works with your anatomy to elongate and take undue pressure off your joints. The Palo itself is made from a specific material that interacts with the ridges in your hands, to help you establish the right balance of tension, for the movements to offer the best release for your body. When your frame is close to moving in unison, it allows for a deeper targeted release of sore tired muscles; which in turn increases blood flow. This is obtained all in one integrated movement.
Locomotion Respiratory Coupling
Locomotion Respiratory Coupling
Locomotion Respiratory Coupling Air Blade design and theory is based on two principles
1. Fluid dynamics
Bernoulli's principle can also be derived directly from Newton's 2nd law. If a small volume of fluid is flowing horizontally from a region of high pressure to a region of low pressure, then there is more pressure behind than in front. This gives a net force on the volume, accelerating it along the streamline
Fluid particles are subject only to pressure and their own weight. If a fluid is flowing horizontally and along a section of a streamline, where the speed increases it can only be because the fluid on that section has moved from a region of higher pressure to a region of lower pressure; and if its speed decreases, it can only be because it has moved from a region of lower pressure to a region of higher pressure. Consequently, within a fluid flowing horizontally, the highest speed occurs where the pressure is lowest, and the lowest speed occurs where the pressure is highest.
2. Locomotion Respiratory Coupling
The coupling of movement and respiration.
a. Move to breathe
b. Breathe to move
What does this mean?
Your movement can create inhalation and your inhalation can create movement.
In short the LRC air blade helps your body to bring in air to match demand when needed.
it is great for speeding up recovery post exercise.
it is great for increasing your work load without increasing the effort.
reduces effort at same workload
