Muscle Activation Drills

Dr. Eric Serrano MD Shoulder Warm Up

The Muscle Activation Drills done during the first stages of a weight training session set the tone for productivity, reduce pain, increase strength and lower the risk of many injuries. Shoulder pain during the early parts of training sessions can be greatly reduced or eliminated with the right protocols. Dr. Eric Serrano MD has developed numerous Muscle Activation Drills for his patients to fix weaknesses and prepare for intense training sessions. Specific movement patterns can activate muscles that are not firing correctly while a typical warm up reinforces bad motor patterns and creates needless fatigue.


Muscle Activation Drills

Warming up the muscles correctly should take 5 to 10 minutes featuring short rest periods between Muscle Activation Drill sets. Performing the early sets of your workout in significant pain would indicate you are starting the session with the wrong movements. Increasing blood flow to the musculature that you plan to train during that session helps to transport recovery and growth materials from the 100% MR Complete Recovery System and Muscle Synthesis Powder sipped starting 30 minutes before training. The Serrano extension featured below is excellent for warming up the shoulders and fixing common weakness that are best addressed during the early stages of a training session.

3 scoops of 100% MR and 3 scoops of Muscle Synthesis Powder Body Composition Improvement System sipped 30 minutes before training prepares the muscles for training and provides a powerful alternative energy source which is especially important when using a low carbohydrate diet. 3 scoops of 100% MR and 3 scoops of Muscle Synthesis Powder immediately post training accelerates recovery of the muscles and the nervous system with the specialized amino acid ratios within the 100% MR will drastically reduce muscle soreness and mental fatigue. Muscle Synthesis Powder provides the perfect ratios of free form amino acids to increase muscle tissue and overall body composition based on Dr. Serrano’s extensive patient research.

Poor Recovery Creates Injuries

Pain and injuries can originate with many problems and are often made worse by suboptimal recovery of the muscles as well as the nervous system. Poor recovery between training sessions not only causes muscle soreness, but also negatively impacts the nervous system which governs the complex coordination of movements. 100% MR accelerates recovery of the muscles and the nervous system to maximize the benefits of challenging training sessions while reducing the risk of many fatigue related injuries.

Deep Belly Breathing

According to Dr. Serrano and many experts even elite athletes do not breathe properly which limits performance and can contribute to chronic injuries as well as postural problems. Utilizing proper breathing during exercises that include core stabilization demand will take practice.
