About this book

This handbook provides insights into becoming a better and more evolved athlete. It offers aspiring athletes, regardless of skill level, a better understanding of their bodies and how to unlock the unlimited potential of muscles without injury.
It focuses on the “superhero” muscle: the iliopsoas, and also sheds light on Diamond-Corporation’s new technology and elite athleticism, and how these can contribute to a healthier life. Lastly, the authors explore the mindset of success and provide exercises for remaining calm under pressure. This stand-alone book is the sequel to Paradigm Shift for Future Tennis and Enhancing Performance and Reducing Stress in Sport (2014, Springer).

This book is written by scientists, whose expertise collectively spans the fields of biomechanics, clinical surgery, current and former elite athleticism, engineering and naturopath doctoral work. Together, they aim to inspire and educate athletes on how to improve their sports performance by using new technologies, world class biomechanics knowledge and ancient herbal medicines.

Chapter 2. Mathematical Preliminaries

There is a single mathematical, physical and biomechanical concept that underpins most of the formal derivations presented in this book.

Chapter 3. Multi-physical Structure of Human Fascia: Harmony of Biomechanics and Neurodynamics

Until recently, science has failed to acknowledge the essential role that fascia plays within the human body. What happens inside fascia is an intricate process of waste elimination of the cells and tissue. Another reason why fascia is so vital is because it is connected to the lymph ducts and is part of the lymphatic system.
