BARWIS ARS Screen

Minimize Risk of Injury. 

Maximize Your Athletic Potential. 

Athletes tend to build imbalances based on specific repetitive movements performed in the sport they play. These imbalances lead to strength and range of motion deficits as well as compensatory movement patterns that increase the risk of injury. 

The BARWIS ARS Screen (Activation Resistance Synergy) is intended to assess every joint and muscle in the body, identifying and resolving imbalances and pattern issues that athletes or individuals may have.

We utilize these results to develop customized corrective exercises aimed at aiding the athlete to regain balance, address any imbalances, and perform optimally.

For both the general population and elite athletes, these findings and the corrective exercise program are critical and invaluable in building a more robust body, optimizing performance, and achieving personal greatness.

Balanced neurological function in the joint is imperative to minimize injury and significantly improve physiological performance.

When you register for a BARWIS ARS Screen, you are paired with a certified BARWIS clinician who will set up an individualized one-on-one session with you. During this session, the clinician will use a handheld force device to identify the strengths and weaknesses of every joint movement in your body.

The numerical values obtained from this assessment are then entered into our AMS system, which utilizes a specific algorithm to compute each individual's deficiencies. From this data, we create a customized corrective exercise program to help enhance and eliminate your weaknesses, optimizing you as a human being.

The BARWIS ARS Screen is used by numerous professional leagues around the world to evaluate and correct neuromuscular patterns in globally renowned athletes.

The BARWIS ARS Screen includes:

  • A Full Assessment by a BARWIS-trained provider 

  • A summary report of findings regarding asymmetries and other neurological deficiencies

  • Corrective Exercise Program Development (See below for options)

Following the BARWIS ARS, you will receive one corrective exercise session to educate you on the exercises that you should perform to prevent injury, fix imbalances, and enhance your physical strength. This 60-minute session will be conducted by a BARWIS Trainer.

Following this corrective exercise session, we have a few options for continued training outlined below:

Utilized by Professional Athletes around the World

  • POSITION SPECIFIC TRAINING
    Our position-specific specialists have tremendous resources, professional knowledge,and a sincere passion for developing football players on all levels. With over 50 years ofcombined professional football playing experience, this program is unmatched and will helpany aspiring football player maximize their talents. The BARWIS facilities have one of thelargest indoor training spaces which allow us to be versatile in our fundamental trainingtechniques.
  • WEIGHT TRAINING
    Using a completely scientific approach to weight training progression, a cycle will be designed to meet your needs. Every program is individualized for each athlete intended to help them reach their goals specific to their position and the combine. Our trianing is catered to any injuries or biomechanical issues the athlete may be experiencing.
  • ARS SCREEN, EVALUATION, & CORRECTIVE EXERCISES"
    The BARWIS ARS Screen (Activation Resistance Synergy) is designed to go through every joint and muscle throughout the body to help identify and resolve imbalance and pattern issues an athlete may have. We use these results to write corrective exercises catered to helping the athlete get back on track, fix any imbalances, and help them perform at their maximum capabilities. The BARWIS ARS Screen provides a detailed assessment of the Activation, Inhibition, Range of Motion, Impedance, and Synergistic Patterns of the Neuromuscular System in order to develop a customized corrective exercise program that resolves imbalances, weaknesses, and inefficiencies. Through this process, we are able to establish resilience to injury while improving overall performance and functional movement.
  • MEDIA/INTERVIEW PREPARATION
    Dealing with the media and knowing what to say and how to say it, is part of being a professional athlete. We help prepare athletes in communicating who they are and what they can do when addressing media, scouts, head coaches, GMs, and the general public.
  • INJURY PREVENTION
    This program focuses on the strengthening and stabilization of the neck, knee, ankle, hips, and shoulder. A stable and effective functioning joint allows for optimum power output, which increases performance while decreasing the risk of common injuries.
  • CORE STRENGTH
    A strong core is an extremely important characteristic of any athlete. It is the center for most body movements, allowing effective transfer of power from upper and lower extremities, and is necessary for increasing your speed, agility, overall strength, explosiveness, and coordination.
  • BALANCE AND FUNCTIONAL TRAINING
    Improve your kinesthetic awareness (knowledge of body position in three-dimensional space). This program utilizes all of the body’s proprioceptors to enhance performance on the field or during activities of daily living. The cycle includes a vast array of exercises to accommodate all levels of training and remove any form of program stagnation.
  • PLYOMETRIC, EXPLOSIVE, IMPULSE TRAINING"
    These exercises teach the body to utilize the elastic principles of the muscles and increase neural impulse speed through trained activation; this occurs all while reducing the risk of soft-tissue injury. Includes training for the upper and lower body.
  • FLEXIBILITY & RANGE OF MOTION
    This program will help you maintain and improve your passive and active range of motion in your joints and surrounding muscles; reducing the risk of injury and promoting performance. Many times our common hamstring, back, and knee pain can be caused by inflexibility and tight structures. When following our specialized stretching program, you can eliminate these issues to further prevent any limitations in your performance. Being able to move through a full range of motion can increase power output by optimizing biomechanical leverage position.
  • SPEED TRAINING
    This program provides a proper speed training progression that consists of running mechanics and technique drills. The cycles will encompass resistive running drills, free running for acceleration and top-end speed, and over-speed drills that will focus on neural impulse speed and physiological adaptation.
  • AGILITY TRAINING
    This cycle specifically focuses on the central nervous system to enhance change of direction, acceleration, and deceleration, while providing you with the proper progression of drills based on your sport and level of training.
