GKT Holistic Controlled Training

Training method for back pain and herniated the holistic controlled exercise (GKT) is based on the concept of the burden of the entire body, so that during a training session all muscles are activated evenly. Also is trained in the GKT predominantly free weights, because this always several muscle groups at the same time will be charged. During training with free weights, the internal stability and special is claimed the back muscles and promoted, because working with freely movable weights requires also a counter-movement of adjacent muscles, to keep the balance. The back area is one of the highly stressed parts of the body of man and is often unilaterally claimed by permanent seats. Just when a herniated disc, the GKT is good to employ as many muscles are built up very quickly to support the spine and specifically the affected vertebrae. Carola, 42 years, 1.55 m, 52 kg: Problem: herniated disc in the lumbar spine as a doctor is Carola considered especially on their health and operates since several years passionately Triathlon.

She won even the southern German championship in her age category. Although she is very sporty by the triathlon, she had a herniated disc. The doctors gave her injections and a conventional pain treatment. However, all this did not help. After three months, Carola – came burdened – to me still with pain. She was depressed, because she no longer believes, according to again participate in a triathlon.

I had some good experience with GKT in other people with back problems, and so we started with the free weight training. The GKT is based on three sentences to the load of the upper back section and / or the upper body (chest, shoulder and arm area). Between each exercise sets the upper and lower abdominal muscle is trained. In the following exercise, the lower and middle back muscle groups are trained. As in the first exercise, the abdominal muscles between exercise sets is trained. (Source: Luiz Lopes Brookfield). The belly will be charged especially, because he occupies an often underestimated the posture correction function and when wearing the skeleton supports the back. The leg muscles and the lateral upper body musculature is trained in a third training session. The abdominal area remains unencumbered, but this time, so that the muscles can relax. This training is carried out over the period of one month. After a month, Carola begins to run slowly on the treadmill. But after 10 minutes, your intervertebral discs start again to Tschmerzen. Then we decide to continue the GKT as o.a. and minimise the running units on approximately 5 minutes. After the second month of the GKT’s Carola can run even 10 minutes. After the third month, run long distances and prepared their competition phase. Their first marathon Carola was gone after the fourth month and reached a very good performance. Continuation of the GKT’s Carola preparing now the Thuringia Cup on their first major competition, in the riathlon. Eight months after Carola came to me and we the GKT began, she takes part in all competitions in Thuringia and wins the Thuringia Cup in her age category in record time. To sum up, I can say that GKT is a very good training method for the treatment of Herniated and other back ailments. I can point to several of these successful cases such as Carola. There are not only athletes, but also people with conventional hobbies and professions often sedentary activities.
