In Russia and his native Ukraine, Nikolay Amosov is a public figure with the stature Arnold Schwarzenegger boasts in this country. You may be surprised to find out that the #1 Russian exercise icon is not a three hundred pound weightlifter or wrestler, but an octogenarian surgeon with the wiry physique of a Bruce Lee and the ascetic fat-free face of a Jacques Ives Cousteau. Until recently, Academician Amosov ran a schedule that would a kill a twenty- five year old yuppie, not to mention a horse. In his late seventies and early eighties he performed two open heart surgeries a day, an average of eleven hours, wearing out two support crews (a quarter to a half his age) along the way. The fitness superstar started out as a retired Red Army lieutenant colonel in his late fifties with the World War II behind him, a spare tire in the front, and an assortment of diseases. The turning point was the day when Amosov formulated and put to practice his now famous theory of limit loads, which I will cover in detail in my upcoming book on Russian natural health practices. One of the corner stones of the theory is the belief that a human organism has a great ability to regenerate itself. While still lying in bed on your back, hold on to the headboard, raise your legs, and bring them behind your head so— hopefully—your knees touch your forehead. If you choose to do the drill on the floor you may press down into the floor with your palms positioned by your hips or hold on to some stationary object above your head. Try to touch the floor behind your head with your feet, as Nikolay Amosov in his late seventies long as you do not load your neck. Stand upright, then bend over and try to touch the floor with your fingers or even your palms. The chin tucks in as you fold over and the head tilts back as you stand up. Passively exhale on the way down and inhale into your stomach on the way up. If you do it right, the intra-abdominal pressure when rising on inhalation will straighten out your spine like a hydraulic jack—with minimal back stress.

Group Ia and group II afferents from tibialis anterior (TA) converge on propriospinal neurones (PN) projecting to quadriceps (Q) and TA motoneurones (MN). Transmission of group II excitation is gated by a monoaminergic tract from the locus coeruleus (Loc Coer). It is assumed that the locus coeruleus normally receives descending inhibition from higher centres. DPN-induced group II excitation is increased in the rigid patient, not in the non-rigid patient.
