PUSH Fitness & Rehabiliation
Welcome !! PUSH-as-Rx ®™ is leading the field with laser focus supporting our youth sport programs. The PUSH-as-Rx ®™ System is a sport specific athletic program designed by a strength-agility coach and physiology doctor with a combined 40 years of experience working with extreme athletes. At its core, the program is the multidisciplinary study of reactive agility, body mechanics and extreme motion dynamics. Through continuous and detailed assessments of the athletes in motion and while under direct supervised stress loads, a clear quantitative picture of body dynamics emerges. Exposure to the biomechanical vulnerabilities are presented to our team. Immediately, we adjust our methods for our athletes in order to optimize performance. This highly adaptive system with continual dynamic adjustments has helped many of our athletes come back faster, stronger, and ready post injury while safely minimizing recovery times. Results demonstrate clear improved agility, speed, decreased reaction time with greatly improved postural-torque mechanics. PUSH-as-Rx ®™ offers specialized extreme performance enhancements to our athletes no matter the age.

CrossFit vs Weight Training: Which Gives Better Results?

Traditional weightlifters and cross trainers don’t see eye to eye on training. However, the best approach to training isn’t as black & white as you may think.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

Crossfit vs weight lifting, an argument can be made for both.  Crossfit programs build muscle and cardiorespiratory fitness at the same time without requiring hours of exercise on a treadmill or elliptical trainer. Many recent studies found that high-intensity training produced startlingly rapid results. The focus of crossfit includes full body motions.  In essence, you are working many joints at one time.  This puts a massive load on the body, which in turn has to produce a massive output of energy to keep the body in whole moving.  

Weight Lifting in a classic sense, has been historically limited to a relatively small amount of joints moving when the loads are place in motion relative to crossfit type of motions. The output is much less in terms of power and cardiovascular loads.  Understand the kinetics of both science is paramount in choosing how to condition the body.  A knowledgeable trainer understands the dynamics of these sciences as it pertain to an individuals abilities and goals.  In a perfect world the is a balance to all these emerging methods.  There too is room for additional methods to include flexibility and mobility in the pursuit of true fitness.  

Yes, there appears to be a tug-a-war between the factions taking sides.  There is simply merit to both methods as they both offer improvements in physiological fitness if done mindfully and intent-fully.
