Most exercise methods focus on targeting muscles, which are the end effectors in the 3-step process of movement production (1-Plan, 2-Program, 3-Execute), leaving Steps 1 and 2 to the subconscious brain systems, limiting the possibility of learning and relearning.
The Baseworks method formulates the movement task goals in a way that makes Step 1 more conscious, allowing for more effective modification of motor programs at Step 2, leading to more effective learning and relearning.
Baseworks considers the neurophysiological mechanisms of motor learning and through its original applications works to increase sensory and spatial awareness, develop better control and more detailed repertoire of basic motor programs, strategically stimulating neuroplasticity. It also teaches intensity modification techniques that change one’s perception of stress, self, and interpersonal interactions. Its applications in attention allocation also have been reported to improve spatial cognition and short-term memory.
