WELCOME TO FLEXOR

The Flexor Training System is an instruction and conditioning program developed to help Archer's maximize performance through scientifically proven advanced motor learning. Flexor is centered upon a revolutionary, patented “in position” training model.

TAKE AIM!

What distinguishes Flexor’s methodology from other training regimens is that it is sport-specific training, “in-position”; that builds a balanced base and creates new motor learning patterns. Flexor’s benefits include improving the brain/body connection, while building a more stable foundation, improving posture, increasing flexibility and strength in all of the shot process.

Flexor bridges the gap between instruction and the ability to perform at optimum efficiency. Flexor offers a baseline physical evaluation and testing program as well as online instruction and multimedia lesson plans. 

Train 3 times a week for 15 minutes a session and see immediate improvements in your anchor point, draw length, follow through and overall performance.

AN INTERVIEW
WITH JAKE KAMINSKY

Olympic Archery medalist Jake Kaminsky sits down to discuss the benefits of implementing the Flexor Method into his training routine.

THE DRILLS

One of the reasons the Flexor Sports Training system is very effective is because it’s so simple. There are no weights, complicated maneuvers or stretches requiring a contortionist’s flexibility. Yet, after just one session, your students will feel stronger and more flexible and they will notice differences in their shots which will feel more powerful and in balance. 

There is a single core movement—the rotation of the torso—with variations in body position and the way the a student holds the roll. In increasing order of difficulty, the five positions are: lying, seated, standing, on one knee and in a staggered stance, with one foot in front of the other. 


Much of the difficulty will come as students fight to remain in balance, especially with discs under their feet. After pushing their muscles to the edge in this way, a standing on solid ground with a bow should feel smooth and easy. 


It is also important to perform an equal number of repetitions on both sides, to prevent any imbalances in the body. Believe I or not archery is a rotational motion that takes place on both sides of the bow both sides of the body should develop equally. And when using a disc, make sure it is under the foot that you are rotating into. 


Here is how to perform the variations of these exercises.
