‘RR2G’ means release, restore to grow. By using the expressions ‘releasing’, ‘restoring’ and ’growing’, we want to identify three different phases in the process that characterize the health status of an individual and his physical-athletic condition. The ﬁrst phase ‘RELEASING’ Its purpose is to analyze, identify and remove the problematic limitations of the body in order to receive all the beneﬁts from the additional driving forces generated by the “ﬁtness effect” of movement training. Therefore, in this phase, we want to research and reach the ideal state of equilibrium in the body by eliminating all the inevitable impediments that would tend to increase slowly over time and would lead to further limitations in the performance and health. If adequate attention is not given to this important phase, all the imbalances in the body would increase to the point of revealing problems of different types such as tensions, discomfort, pains, and then injuries. Before facing a workout or program and even after a period of intense training, we want to go back to that state of equilibrium described above, and to do so, we have to analyze the body and its movement in all directions, 360 degrees in space, to be certain that all limitations are identiﬁed and neutralized. The release phase, on a practical level, is composed of different types of interventions on the body and different types of practice that the practitioner can experience in a passive or active manner. These different approaches, combined together, lead to an optimal result. Here we will deal, in particular, with all those practices in which the subject has an active role in the release phase. The second phase ‘RESTORING’ This phase has a dual purpose indeed the expression ‘restore’ takes on a different meaning. The ﬁrst can be explained by ‘reconstruction – activation’.
The second relates to ‘relaxation – regeneration’. The ‘reconstruction – activation’ is about educating the body to learn and consolidate
the correct movement patterns around which all movements develop, from the simplest to the most complex, with the aim of learning how to produce and transfer force in the most efﬁcient way possible. For many people, due to the most diverse reasons – related to compromised health conditions, type of working life or speciﬁc physical activity – the ability to control the body and consciously activate certain areas of it, is compromised. Developing these abilities is crucial to produce improvements in the physical-athletic condition. The ‘relaxation – regeneration’ is all about resetting the nervous system. The ﬁnal goal is to bring it back to a state that can promote a rebalancing of the body’s hormonal levels, accelerate recovery, and put the practitioner in a position to be able to heal or at least to decrease the effects of stress. The third phase ‘GROWING’ This is the last phase in which, by expressing the maximum potential, it is possible to reap the beneﬁts from training and movement practice. It is closely connected to the two previous stages. The improvement, the growth of a person, from the performance and athletic standpoint – but also for health – can be facilitated and speeded up by a careful work that develops, in practice, the concepts described above.
