Here is the recipe I use. Pinch of this, pinch of that. I do believe in the order. The quantity of each ingredient is up to you. (I do use chiropractic adjustments, but that wouldn't work for home care.)
1. Muscle Release Work. I use A.R.T. Any soft tissue work will do. You can use a foam roller for self use. The principle here is tissue quality.
2. Long Myofascial Chain Stretches. For example, if you just did work with the quads, I suggest you stretch the whole frontal chain on that side. A little anatomy trains knowledge is helpful. (see Thomas Meyers) The principle is length.
3. Activation. I use M.A.T. Essentially, Muscle Activation Technique uses low grade isometrics to make sure a muscle can contract fast. The principle is facilitation.
4. Strength/Power. Bodyweight movements. Squat, lunges, push ups, chin ups ect. This doesn't have to be bodyweight either. Just easier patient homework to give. This is tempo driven. Beginners would start with a slower tempo. 4 second eccentric, pause, 2 second concentric as an example. A more advance athlete may be given a fast tempo. The principle is Strength Expression.
