Training With 4 Time NCAA Wrestling Champion – Kyle Dake

Here is a testimonial on Functional Patterns by 4 time NCAA wrestling champion, Kyle Dake. Kyle came to me a few months ago in search of rehabilitating his injured shoulder and improving his abilities overall. He had a classic case of excessive hypermobility. Whether it was in his shoulders, ribcage, hips or knees, it was clear his joints were floating around with minimal support. This is why he had two extreme injuries. After a few days of him training with me, we managed to eccentrically potentiate these muscles. Since he started with FP almost 2 years ago, he has yet to get any injuries. My goal is to keep him that way until he is done with his wrestling career.

Kyle is an amazing human and I feel very blessed to have gotten to work with him. Keep it up brother!

    Where can I buy the arc trainer that you use for bands?

    Great stuff. Really interested in learning and mastering this program. How do i get in contact with anyone to start learning. Have many questions on overcoming dysfunction to work the myofacial releases

    Highly interested in your training program. I am a fairly new cyclist who has started to do competitive cycling. My goal is to incorporate dynamic exercises that make me a stronger cyclist. What are your cycling specific exercises that you suggest?

      Hey William,

      We don’t have any cycling specific content, however we have recieved positive messages from cyclists who have followed functional patterns though our free content, our book The Power of Posture or the 10 week online course.

      The techniques that we use at FP respect human biology and we train the body according to facial lines taking into account tensegrity. This means it is transferable to many sports, including cycling.

      I trust this helps. Train intentionally, not habitually,
      The FP Team.
