RNT – Reactive Neuromuscular Training – Corrective Exercise with Bands
You’ve heard of reactive neuromuscular training, but do you really know what it means? How it was created and what is its purpose? Here Gray Cook explains how RNT came to be used, and his thinking behind reactive neuromuscular training.
“There’s a scenario when movement quality is poor where RNT can significantly speed up the corrective and the functional training processes when it comes to movement quality and integrity. In doing so, it will also create a sound base for strength training, sport-specific training, endurance, speed, agility, quickness and power.
“When your subconscious and the subtle timing of your stabilizers create joint integrity, joint alignment and fascial tension balance the forces around the joint, maintain the axis of the joint and simply juice integrity of the system, the prime movers have no choice but to perform better. ~Gray Cook
