Glossary

{!glossary}

N.B: this glossary is relative to Meto2o, and will contain explanations of terms and procedures used in the same techniques.
Consequently, will not be contained definitions of terms definable "more common", such as "spine", "shoulder", "hip-joint" or other.

PHYSICAL EXERCISE / PHYSICAL PREPARATION

Set of exercises that have as their aim the optimization functional. Fundamental, in this case, the distinction with the athletic training: a set of exercises that target the improvement of performance during the race.

LOCOMOTOR APPARATUS

Corporeal ensemble of functions of 2 systems: skeletal (bones, which provide financial support) and muscles (the muscles that perform motor function), united by a joint or joints, which are sets of more or less inert connective tissue (tendons - muscle - and ligaments - skeletal) that act solely as function of union between the two previous parts, muscles and bones.

PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE

Athlete who is able to remain economically with the proceeds from its own sport.

FREE BODY

Exercises, drills or trainings conducted solely and exclusively with his own body, without any overload, and so, without weights or ballasts (including gravity).

HUMAN BODY

The set (motorically talking about, which is our field of action) of the nervous, muscular and skeletal system.

MENTAL DETERMINATION

Desire to improve day after day. In fact it should be strongly motivated to work on the release motor, fatigue and suffering caused by this type of work must be first accepted, then repeated consistently and finally you will see results.

DISCIPLINE

Science subject that has practical application in the human body.

DISTRIBUTION OF LOADS

Proper muscle structure-functional and physical-motor, in which everything works according to nature and each party involved in the movement in full working fulfilling its specific tasks, tendons, ligaments, muscles agonists and antagonists in a harmonious, synergistic and systematic.

JOINT PAINS AND / OR MUSCLE PAINS

The classic "aches and pains" that seem to be left out of nowhere and that, usually, are ignored and sedated through a painkiller, in the hope that the next day they are gone. Clearly, these problems do not occur if our body is sufficiently efficient and balanced.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

Actions and gestures that are carried out with the voluntary awareness of the correct sequences neuro-muscular that control the movement itself. The motor control of the kinetic chains is essential in the execution of training progressions Meto2o.

BALANCE

Understood in many ways:

  • proper relationship between the soft tissues (tendons and ligaments) in the joint capsules;
  • proper balance of power between agonist and antagonist muscles in the region;
  • proper balance of power between motor and postural muscles in a specific region of the body;
  • proper balance of power between the muscle and its tendon.

PHYSICAL AND MOTOR

Adjective that accompanies the description of all that is related to the joints (or joints) and to the spine as a whole. In part, it may also be linked to certain bone structures are particularly stressed in the human and full of features, both at the level of support that level of assistance motor (examples are the shoulder blades or the house of the thoracic spine or pelvis and hip joint).

STRENGTH

Ability to perform a task, without limitations caused by motor imbalances.

FUNCTIONALITY / FUNCTIONAL OPTIMIZATION

State of maximum efficiency on the musculoskeletal system, with the minimization of friction and congestive naturally present in our body. Ability that the subject has to move, depending on the needs, to the best of its ability and without blame or pain while running or in the aftermath of the effort, as well as, moving with balance, it will prevent wear problems caused by bad distributions effort. Concept closely related to equilibrium.

CORRECTIVE GYMNASTICS

Series of exercises that are intended to correct the physical-motor problems, especially at the level of the spine; widespread may be the example of scoliosis.

POSTURAL GYMNASTICS

Series of exercises that are designed to make it as functional as possible the positions taken by our body during everyday life, as well as the various activities that we face.

MOTOR LIBERATION

It differs, substantially, with respect to mobility as it is an action activates the liberation motor: it's, in fact, the process by which we achieve a proper degree of mobility.

MAXIMUM RANGE OF MOTION

During the execution of a motor gesture, each segment must be used with the greatest degree of mobility possible: this can be achieved through proper release motor, excellent movement education and an excellent degree of balance between the parties involved (muscle and connective tissue).

GLOBAL METHOD

Way of working which has as its basic principle the concept that the human body is not divided into sectors, but is a set of functions which all for the same goal: well-being.

JOINT MOBILITY

Range of motion that a particular joint can be achieved, even passively, definition bibliography.

MUSCLE-FUNCTIONAL

Adjective that accompanies the description of everything that occurs in the muscles and tendons; imbalances, imbalances of power, structural damage from trauma or wear and tear.

TISSUE NUTRITION

When any tissue in a specific region of the body gets the most nutrition possible and necessary to their proper functioning; nourishment comes from proper blood supply (carrying nutrients) in the region itself.

COMMON PROBLEMS

All the problems of a painful that can occur not only through an intense sport, but in life every day. They can be damaged by wear or attrition, problems caused by stress or certain positions established through years of work, any damage caused by minor injuries (the mother raising her young son hangs in the back) or other causes and contributing factors.

FUNCTIONAL RECOVERY

Phase of rehabilitation following surgery or a shut-down period, caused by physical trauma.

STRESS

State of overload can manifest itself in a physical, mental, psycho-somatic.

RELAXATION TECHNIQUE

Course of action which, through different systems, has the purpose of bringing the body to the muscle suppleness and control of their motor skills, making it voluntary and conscious.

RESPIRATORY TECHNIQUE

Many problems can be treated with the simple aid of respiration which, however, is crucial for the success of any type of exercise.

PERSONAL TREATMENT

Session of physical training customized to the individual needs of the subject.
