secret of athleticism
Awaken your glutes,
& prevent injury
Find out the truth about athleticism and the secret behind it
The journey started with a question:
What is the difference between the elite athletes and regular people? is it genetic or biomechanics?
In 1954 Hicks first described the Windlass Mechanism, the Windlass Mechanism works as the heel comes off the ground while the big toe remains on ground, dorsiflexing the metatarsophalangeal joints. The increase tension in the long plantar fascia produces a rigid inner longitudinal arch by compacting the medial column joints(talonavicular, navicular-cuneiform, cuneiform-1st metatarsal and 1st metatarsophalangeal joints). This compacting of the medial column joints is essential, as it maintains the foot as a rigid level.
"In short, my research discovery reveals it's how we use the feet and toes that separate the elite superstars from the average players and the average from the regular folks who are prone to sports injury. The foot is the root cause of most sports injuries today." - Chong Xie
The Hyperarch Mechanism® on the other hand does NOT require the toes to be raised and it is a catalyst for holistic body fascia metamorphosis and neurological rebirth when applied properly through expert guidance.

Chong’s background and interest in training the foot
Common features of an athletic foot for sprinting and jumping, and general explosive athletic feats
Weightlifting and relationships with the feet
Fascia vs. muscle driven athletes, and times to warm up for maximal performance
Biomechanics behind the “hyperarch hop” exercise
Why some elite basketball players, such as Michael Jordan, let their knees come together while shooting, and the relationship to glute activation
The Hyperarch Fascia Training helps prevent or reduce the risk of common sports injuries, the benefit includes not limited to:
Increase myofascial recruitment of glutes (Strong glutes)
Increase Tendon Compliance (Bouncy steps)
Increase Foot Strength
Correct Posture (Anterior Tilt & Posterior Tilt)
Prevent Ankle Sprain
Reduce joint pain
Prevent Knee Pain such as Patellar Tendonitis
Prevent Shin Splints
Reduce the risk of ACL tear
Reduce the risk of MCL tear

"Our feet degenerate overtime without the proper stimulation of the harsh ground elements, without the proper stimulation during critical development of a child's life, the neurological connection from the feet to the glutes is lost gradually."
"Secret of Athleticism" by Chong Xie extensively delves into the success formula of elite athletes and their outstanding performances using a unique yet practical approach that has never been documented before. The book combines the elements of science, science fiction, real life application and ground breaking discovery to give the reader the true secret of athleticism in an easy and understandable way.
Summary of the Book
There is a question that arises in our consciousness: is it really genes or biomechanics that make us different from the widely sought after and famous athletes whose performances are not only awe inspiring but almost seem "out of this world" magical? Keeping this million-dollar question in mind the author Chong Xie embarks on an inquisitive journey to crack the code and unravel the truth. He successfully does so in this book and shares his discovery with you. In his narrative, he effectively syncs science fiction and science together. The discovery is amazing and it gives you the answer not only to one sport phenomenon but it can be used to answer all. The same mechanism unraveled in this book can be replicated by just anyone! regardless of race or body composition.
The sports industry across the globe has known for ages that elite athletes combine their big toe and hip (Gluteus Maximus) predominantly in delivering superior athletic performances. These athletes were born knowing, it’s natural to them, but they could not explain exactly how it works. Chong Xie has cracked this very code and discovered the mechanism which would allow you to fully engage the Gluteus Maximus consciously without the aid of movement. This mechanism is one that can be replicated once you know how.
This very knowledge drastically reduces ankle sprains and other common injuries. It implies that you as an athlete can get control over your performance and health. Running barefooted becomes easy and natural to you. The book is a practical guide to a natural way for enhancing performance and reducing injuries.
