Watch: Investigating ‘The Reset System’

Watch: Investigating ‘The Reset System’

by Team Kabuki January 05, 2023

I recently had the opportunity to spend some time with Shawn Sherman and Jonathan Loos of The Reset System. They visited our facility over the course of a couple days and used their method on a number of our athletes. We were able to see some immediate results in a number of them as well as observe them diagnose known issues (unknown to them) with several of them in a very quick fashion.

RESET is a revolutionary restorative movement system that pinpoints and eliminates the joint dysfunctions that cause us to compensate with our posture and movement. Over the course of our lives, stress causes our bodies to acquire joint dysfunctions which, in turn, causes us to compensate elsewhere, which puts excess stress where it doesn’t need to be, and weakness where there should be stability. In order to reap the full benefits of physical activity we need flawless posture and movement. RESET removes the flaws and restores natural posture and movement.

RECENT: Interview with LeRoy “The Machine” Walker

 

Their system is fairly new and doesn’t not have a significant grounds of evidence from studies to support it but seems to be working very well on clients it is administered to. I did voice some of my concerns in the interview I did with them around the lack of empowerment from the client perspective, as it is required that the practice be ‘administered’. However, if someone finds it useful, it can be very complementary to the empowered type of approach we promote with the Kabuki Movement Systems.

As noted, we did see results consistently delivered on our athletes and staff and there are a number of athletes and strength and conditioning coaches seeing benefit and promoting these methods.

Below is my interview with Shawn and Jonathon that I think you will really enjoy. We had a wonderful time talking shop during their visit.

Shawn Sherman holds a degree in Exercise and Sport Science from Penn State University and operates a private fitness studio in Western Springs, Illinois. He is the developer of the RESET system. He has held numerous industry certifications (NSCA, ACE, MATTM). Utilizing his unique RESET system, Shawn has consulted with hundreds of elite athletes from many organizations, including the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Blackhawks, US and Canadian Olympians and over a dozen universities including the University of Minnesota and Purdue University.

Jonathan Loos, PT, DPT, MS, CSCS is a Physical Therapist and the Director of Education for the RESET system. He has been a Clinical Instructor for both the National Personal Training Institute (Lisle, IL) and the University of Illinois – Chicago. Additionally, he has served as a movement optimization consultant to the Chicago Cubs and the Milwaukee Admirals (AHL).

Training Should Be Corrective and Rehabilitative
Training Should Be Corrective and Rehabilitative

by Daniel DeBrocke January 09, 2023

A common problem is the neglect lifters have toward their orthopedic health. At least until they become injured and are forced to address it. Unfortunately, they turn to theraguns, foam rolling, static stretching, and other approaches that often do little to move the needle. What people often get wrong is their training should simultaneously enhance their performance and address their long term health. In this article I’ll cover how to effectively incorporate corrective work into your training (and no, I’m not talking about spending an hour using therabands).

The Men’s Mental Health Crisis
The Men’s Mental Health Crisis

by Daniel DeBrocke January 06, 2023

The writing of this article was prompted by all the social media posts I’ve seen talking about men’s mental health. Apparently November is men’s mental health month. That is unless you’re struggling with your own mental health issues. Then, every month, week, and day may very well be an ongoing struggle. Although throughout this article I’ll be referencing comparative data between men and women and differing demographics, the point is not to prop up men's suffering above women or anyone else for that matter. It’s simply there to elucidate the current state of men’s mental health, which is the central focus of this article. “Einstein is quoted as having said that if he had one hour to save the world he would spend fifty-five minutes defining the problem and only five minutes finding the solution” (1). This mentality exists in contrast to the current lack of awareness pertaining to the drivers of psychological ill-health. Social media and articles routinely discuss what to do if you’re depressed, anxious, suicidal, etc. But seldom does anyone discuss the complexity of the subject. Unfortunately, without truly understanding the issues that lead to ill-health it’s unlikely to come up with an effective solution and subsequent prevention strategies. Therefore the aim of this article is as follows:

Is Full Range Of Motion Actually Better For Muscle Growth?
Is Full Range Of Motion Actually Better For Muscle Growth?

by Daniel DeBrocke January 06, 2023

Optimizing exercise range of motion to maximize muscle growth is a popular topic to discuss. As new research emerges, it often leaves you with more questions about the fundamental mechanisms and application of hypertrophy training. Mechanical tension is known as a primary driver of hypertrophy. Therefore it stands to reason that training a muscle through larger ranges of motion will create more tension, resulting in a greater hypertrophic stimulus. Although this makes sense at face value, it’s ultimately an unsatisfactory answer. At deeper levels of analysis, mechanical tension alone (or at least our current model) can not explain some of the observed outcomes we see both in the literature and anecdotally. The aim of this article is to provide a brief review of the topic, provide context to the ROM discussion, and offer practical recommendations to implement into your own training.
