My first encounter with Reflexive Performance Reset (RPR) was in the fall of 2016. I had recently graduated from Denison University, where I was a part of the football team for all four years. An owner of TAD Sports, Clint Cox, had been researching RPR for a couple months and needed a willing test subject to practice on. Myself being recently hired, wasn’t at liberty to refuse. Warning, you will experience some pressure that at times can be uncomfortable, but the payoff was/is more than worth it.
During that time period I was in the middle of training my vertical jumping ability. I had put together a 12 week program, and had completed 8 weeks of the program. In those two months my vertical had increased from 30.5” to 31.8”. My all-time vertical at Denison University was 32.0″. After my initial RPR trial with Clint, he told me to incorporate it into my warm-up and see what happens. In just two WEEKS my vertical increased to 33.8”, an ALL-TIME RECORD! I emphasize all-time record because in the sports performance world it is very hard to set new all-time records. It is relatively easy to purely increase numbers, but all-time bests are few and far between. This is especially true when athletes have higher training ages (myself being a post collegiate athlete).
RPR works because it stimulates your nervous system into a parasympathetic state, a recovery and optimal performance state. The combination of life and training puts nearly everyone’s nervous system into a sympathetic state, a stress and survival state. Your nervous system controls what state your body is currently in. You need to be in a recovered state to perform to your highest potential.
Your nervous system can increase/decrease your performance faster than your skeletal and muscular systems. No muscle can contract without first being electrically stimulated by the nervous system. The human body is a computer, the muscles are the computer’s coding, the nervous system is the electric power. You can’t input coding into a computer if its not plugged into a power source. RPR stimulates your nervous system specifically to enhance what the muscles can already do.
