Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 25, 2004 Â In sports, what makes one athlete so much more successful than another? In martial arts, what makes one fighter so much more dominant than another? In sports and martial arts, the secret to being an elite athlete lies in the ability to master tension and relaxation, explains Russian ex-Special Forces instructor Pavel in his new DVD, Fast and Loose, Secrets of the Russian Champions: Dynamic Relaxation Techniques for Elite Performance.
In his bestselling strength training books Pavel emphasizes the importance of learning to maximally tense the muscles, because tension is strength. Strength/tension is only half of the total performance package. The other half is relaxation. The body of a karate expert will freeze in total tension at the moment of impact, but will remain totally loose before and after.
According to Pavel: ÂMastery of relaxation is the hallmark of an elite athlete. Soviet scientists discovered that the higher the athlete's level, the quicker he can relax his muscles. The Soviets observed an 800% difference between novices and Olympians. Their conclusion: total control of tension = elite performance.Â
ÂIf you can master your muscular tension, a new dimension of athletic excellence opens to you. New achievements. New heights of performance in whatever your sport or martial artÂ Âcontinues physical performance expert Pavel. ÂSome genetically-endowed superstars seem to possess this ability from birth. But a skill-set is available that can transform anyoneÂs current physical limitations.
Now, for the first time, Pavel reveals these little-known Soviet relaxation secrets for elite performance, to the general public. From years of research and experience, Pavel has selected these Fast & Loose dynamic relaxation techniques as the best-of-the-best for practical and quick results in martial arts and sports.
Regular practice of these relaxation skills can help remove the false brakes within our bodies and open us up to a new freedom of movement and vitality Â and athletic excellence.
