Kinetic Chain Enhancement – Pressing and Chin-ups Module


Kinetic Chain Enhancement – Pressing and Chin-ups Module (2 Days)

Taught by Charles R. Poliquin and Carlos Castro

This method combines a number of effective soft tissue techniques to primarily achieve the result of recalibrating muscle/fascia and connective tissue.

What You Will Learn:

– Restore the function of all of the muscular components

– Improve recruitment sequence of the muscle,

– Reduce friction/increase the contraction speed  and strength of the muscle

– Remove scar tissue and adhesions

–  Reduce future and rehabilitate long term injuries


The sequences taught in this seminar will include :

1. How to identify the problem :  rarely the same place as the pain. Is it muscle fibre, fascia of connective tissue which is creating the problem ?

2. Identify if the problem that imbalances/weakness/tension along the kinetic chain aggrave.

This method is indeed very appealing to the bodybuilder/strength athlete as it can very quickly accelerate hypertrophy and strength. But it is also a very useful tool in the world of professional sport. Great successes were achieved in events such as track and field and Formula 1. For instance by hugely improving performance from rehabilitating long term Achilles’ tendon issues to increasing finger speed for gear changes and steering accuracy.

Module 2 will focus on the muscles of the trunk

Practitioners often place far too much emphasis placed on individual weak and non functional muscles. They are being treated without any great result. In reality it is the surrounding areas which have adapted to compensate for the initial problem. Thus even more of an imbalance is created. On the other hand when we calibrate the imbalances, the offending muscle can regain full function very quickly.

Carlos Castro began his career as a Professional Engineer and a Specialist in the Finance Industry. He eventually decided to follow his passion and became a Strength Coach launching Strength Club in Bogotá, Colombia.

In this new career, he has trained winners of Gold and Silver medals at World Championships, Pan-American Games, and National Championships, as well as in sports that range from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, to Speed Motorcycle and Swimming. He attributes his success not only to the strength training itself, but also to his ability to improve the different kinetic chains of his athletes and clients.
