P.I.M.S.T. or Poliquin Instant Muscle Strengthening Technique
is a series of techniques developed by world renowned strength coach, Charles Poliquin. Utilizing muscle activation points, Chinese acupressure & clearing of meridian pathways, these techniques facilitate optimal nervous system function and can offer immediate results in the areas of:
- • Range of Motion
- • Neural Drive
- • Fascia Release
- • Postural Alignment
- • Meridian balance
Think of these techniques as a way to reboot your nervous system in order to send revised signals to your muscles, helping them to either contract or relax depending on the technique in use.
My direct experience with P.I.M.S.T. resulted in an immediate increase in muscle activation and neural drive while doing everything from chins and squats to an 80 degree incline barbell press. I could feel greater motor unit recruitment and in the case of both incline press and chins was able to achieve additional reps while using the same load and tempo! I felt a noticeable increase in strength and stability that was most apparent during lifts with a slow eccentric tempo.
P.I.M.S.T. is a must have technique that can facilitate all training goals!
