Goal-oriented and upward-leading training

Method Makia is goal-oriented and upward-leading. The system continually monitors your development in 20 different sub-areas. Each sub-area is built into developmental processes where the degree of demand for the moves increases with your achievement. Each development motion also has its repeat or hold progress. There are over 1400 different development motions in the system.

Progress within Progression

‘Progress within progression’ means that if you are doing push-ups, for example, our system increases the degree of intensity based on various factors.  It considers your immediate assessment or automatically adjusts based on your algorithm until you are at a level where you are ready for more challenging motions. Then the system moves you on to the next level of intensity. This has the effect of speeding up development and making the training safer.

Development progressions

All development progressions thus start from your  level and are based on the starting test level. Sequences begin at an elementary level where needed.

As an example, a push-up progression is shown below, and it begins with a light push-up…


… and ends in a planche push-up. There are dozens of development motions between these.

Training that Makes Sense

It would not make any sense for a beginner to do a planche push-up if even a regular push-up feels very difficult. It takes time to be able to do a planche push-up, but the Method Makia makes it entirely possible.

Interim goals in developmental progression

Development progressions are divided into sections based on winning interim goals. An interim goal is a next stage in motion progression. It’s the motion that feels sensible to achieve, and by training, you can make it surprisingly fast.
Each motion pair shows the distance to the next interim goal, as well as enabling you to preview the following interim goal motion. 

Exercise history

The system saves each evaluated motion pair, and you can view your progress in every subset in graphical form.

Periodic rest periods

The system also monitors your exercise history and automatically proposes a rest period if your workout is too intense. During a rest period, the intensity of the exercises is reduced to about half of the reasonable amount.
Sufficient alternation of rest and adequate exercise is key to rapid development. You will notice this when you return for the first time from a rest period to regular workouts.

The system also includes 120 different HIIT exercises, each with their  varying degrees of intensity.
