Dieses Video zu Kraft in Dehnung als DehnKraft2go® Muskeltraining für Reiterinnen und Reiter ist auf englisch. This video on strength in stretching as DehnKraft2go® training for riders is in English.
Luziana Diniz is also using DehnKraft2go® training for preparing her body and mind for the olympic horse riding championship 2021 in Tokyo. She is going for her 5th olymic games this year. So she is very experienced in choosing exercises to train her body properly.
DehnKraft2go® is one of the ways to train the body to be flexible and powerful at the same time. In this video we show you how the arms can be relaxed and be tense for riding when it is necessary.
The horse can feel the tension of their rider exactly. In this way the effects of loose muscles can also be used in equestrian sports. The horses can run more relaxed and then build up tension when it is necessary for the relevant test.
In order to reduce tension and pain when riding it is also important in this area of sport to find a balance to the one-sidedness of sport and competition. In order to be healthy and pain-free in the long term, long, strong and supple muscles are more effective than short and strong muscles but therefore permanently very tense muscles.
Strength in stretching as DehnKraft2go® training can help riders to release tension and thus to create new movements. Riding as a competitive sport or in leisure time always has the same posture and movement patterns. Only the change from sitting out and getting up brings some variety. So it is important to create a balance for the sitting muscle pattern that also takes place when traveling in the car or plane to competitions.
Training muscles so that they are strong enough for equestrian sports is an important task for athletes. It is just as important that the muscles are flexible enough to be able to practice equestrian sports without pain. When you fall off the horseback loose muscles can help reduce the severity of the injury.
Loose muscles at rest help rider Luziana Diniz and her horse to start a competition like the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2021 as relaxed as possible and as tense as necessary. Building muscle tension when it is needed, helps both to persevere for a long time.
DehnKraft2go® means performing the exercises in training in such a way that the mobility of the muscles and joints is used to the end. At the end of the stretching where slight pain can be felt, you press then with force against an external resistance. So develop strength without performing the movement.
When doing the exercises always make sure that the breathing is calm and deep. So don’t hold your breath! (This is more important for freediving!) You hold the tension with the force 2-3 breaths. If you want to train very physically you can keep training the muscles until they tremble.
Strength in stretching as Dehnraft2go® can help to increase performance while riding, to minimize injuries, to reduce pain or to train completly. In the further course of a competition, this can also mean that fewer treatments are required.
