Traditional weight training often involves lifting while sitting, lying down or standing in place. While there can be undeniable strength gains from lifting heavy in these positions, your functional strength in real-world activities can remain fatally flawed. Conventional seated and stationary exercise restricts dynamic full-body movement, providing a dangerously artificial stability—and training only a few specific muscles at a time.
The Intrinsic Strength Training® (IST) program helps you break free from the limitations and vulnerabilities of these restrictive exercise patterns. Instead of being “all show and no go”, IST challenges and enhances your ability to control your body in multiple movement planes—getting functionally stronger than you could possibly get through conventional lifting strategies.
By training the body as a dynamic, integrated unit, IST reduces the chance of injury and pain while increasing not only your overall strength but your posture, balance, coordination and precise body control. Traditional weight training too often puts the brakes on your athletic power—resulting in sub-par, erratic performance. IST releases the brakes on your strength gains and unlocks your full athletic potential.
IST is a unique—and much-needed—upgrade to classic resistance training. This upgraded system assures symmetrical and balanced physique improvements. Each IST exercise incorporates the entire body and activates more muscles, toning your physique faster and more efficiently than traditional resistance training. IST burns more calories and improves full-body strength, dynamic stability and movement literacy.
After using IST, you will look and feel like a superior version of yourself. IST provides the aesthetic benefits of following a bodybuilding training regimen with the athleticism and health benefits of the three-dimensional movement training you truly need for your daily activities. With IST, you can build yourself a body that combines a gorilla-like strength, a Ferrari-like level of performance and the fluid movement skills of a high-level ballet dancer…

Congrats to Angelo! I read the book and can't tell you enough what a great job you did bringing some light to the training community. Through your book trainers will relate the Principles of Functional Science to the work they already do with their clients.They will understand the "why" behind the "what"! This great book is direct, efficient and simple. It simplifies complex concepts into useful information!!!
What an incredible resource to improve fitness and strength in the real world. He has mapped out how to become strong in active planes of movement. As he writes, sitting down and working out on machines does not translate to being strong in everyday situations and movements. We see the results daily in the Parker Chiro Clinic and Chiropractic Program. I will be using this book in patient rehab as well as making sure that I am keeping myself injury resistant.I highly recommend that you have this book in your library.
