The Training Archive is organized around 16 different types of stretch/strengthening exercises categorized by meridian muscle groups (MMG).

Meridian muscle groups are contiguous synergistic muscle groups that work together and are associated with an organ in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Each exercise is tagged with its associated physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual traits.

Navigate the archive by MMG or tag via the Navigator. Use the Navigator to search and add exercises to your customized sequences.

You will probably notice many things as you try out each exercise. e.g. I have much more resistance on my right side compared to my left side in this movement.

We recommend keeping track of these things as you progress in your training. Select the note icon throughout the archive to keep notes on your experiences.

We recommend that you check your flex to get a detailed profile of your strengths and weaknesses. Your flex check results will provide you with a guide for your training by revealing to you which parts of your self can use more flexibility, along with the specific exercises available to improve in just the ways you want.

We recommend that you check your flex every three months to keep track of your progress as you continue to train. You can also check it more frequently should you so desire.
