- elderly (health improvement);
- veteran sports activities;
- elite (highly qualified) athletes with a goal to career prolongation.
THIS PROGRAM IS BASED ON THE PRINCIPLES OF LONG-TERM MANAGEMENT OF THE BODY ACCORDING TO RESULTS OF REGULAR PERIODIC CONTROL OF INFORMATIVE INDICATORS (BLOOD, METABOLISM, HORMONAL PROFILE, CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM EXAMINATION, TESTING OF PHYSICAL PARAMETERS).
Below you will find a sequence of routine events based on an annual cycle of athletic training (consisting of two half cycles (spring/summer + autumn/winter)).
- Prolonged phase of physical/athletic activity, improved quality of life in the course of athletic activities (veteran sports, fitness, health-promotion physical activities).
- Extension of the professional career.
- maintaining body performance at an optimal level;
- control and prevention of age-related functional disorders of the basic environmental support systems (cardiovascular, liver and bile ducts, central nervous, immune, hormonal systems);
- recommendations for correction of detected abnormalities and deviations.
Regular periodic follow-up of informative parameters and sequential/parallel use of a set of programs in two directions:
- Maintaining an optimal level of functioning of the key body systems (CVS, CNS, liver etc.), defining the physical performance and mental and emotional resistance in the population of the corresponding age range.
- Early detection and correction of abnormalities and deviations from optimal values.
METHODS OF CONTROL
- Routine blood biochemistry follow-up (AST, ALT, CFK, cholesterol spectrum, glucose, urea, general or free testosterone, cortisol, magnesium, calcium, blood cell count with reticulocytes).
-Once at baseline.
- Body composition morphology follow-up (muscle/fat mass/bound water) at specialized institutions, like medical exercises dispensaries.
-Veteran sports – at least twice during the duration of program.
-High-class athletes depending on the workout or contest program, at least once within one month.
- Control of the arch of foot (flat foot) at specialized orthopedic institutions (like ORTEKA network shops).
-For all target groups of at least once every 6-9 months.
- Bench-top testing of performance and functional testing of the CVS (cardiovascular system) parameters.
-Elderly – before the start of the program at specialized healthcare facilities like medical exercises dispensary.
-Veteran sports and high-class athletes before the start of the program at specialized sports and fitness centers.
- – Scheduled deep liver and biliary system cleanups;
Once every 6 months before the start of a semicycle.
- – Scheduled stress protection program.
Approximately 2 weeks before the date of the main start.
- Scheduled improvement of the hormonal balance.
– Elderly (health improvement) – once every 6 months before the start of a semicycle.
-Veteran sports / high-class athletes – at least once monthly within the period of preparation for the start.
- Diet plan development.
- Development of pharmacological support and scheduled recovery procedures (water procedures, magnetic therapy, lymphatic drainage etc.).
Based on results of examination and according to the schedule of workouts and (or) timetable of competitions.
MODEL PLAN OF ACTIVITIES WITHIN THE PROGRAM
- Routine follow-up of biochemistry parameters according to the workout schedule (see above).
- Follow up of hormone levels (testosterone and cortisol).
- Cleanup of liver and biliary system.
- Functional diagnostic and examination of the cardiovascular system (CVS)
- Basic diet (daily diet, liquid intake, liver cleanup).
- Model programs of pharmacological support (haemostimulation, body weight regulation, stress protection etc.)
SPECIAL NUTRITION PRINCIPLES FOR THE ELDERLY
Vital functions improvement through rational consumption of nutrients with account for the exercise level.
Characteristics and daily diet parameters
- Relatively low-calorie food (according to the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations for the elderly).
- Lower animal protein share with increased share of vegetable proteins, complex carbohydrates, and cellulose.
- Lower share of simple carbohydrates, full switch from sucrose to fructose.
- Increase of cellulose intake to prevent intestinal atony.
- Maintaining the fat share at the expense of vegetable values with increased antioxidant activity of daily diet.
- Maintaining the water and electrolyte balance of the body and regulation of liquid intake including individual growth and weight parameters and climate and seasonal conditions. Choice of drinks.
- Development of the food consumption mode during the day with account for the time of food delayed passage through the stomach before the exercise.
Cooking and choice of products
Mainly boiled, stewed or steamed foods. Seasonal vegetable and fruit selection, preferring frozen (especially dry-frozen) foods to canned foods.
DAILY DIET PLAN IS DEVELOPED BY A NUTRITION SPECIALIST BASED ON DATA ON THE CURRENT CONDITION OF THE CLIENT’S BODY.
