For 37 years, Dr. Cassius Camden Clay, Chiropractor, has intensively studied, researched, and practiced muscle testing. Muscle testing is a relatively new method for evaluating muscle strengths and weaknesses. Dr. Clay is a second generation muscle tester. He respectfully stands upon the shoulders of giants in this extraordinary field. He invites you to stand upon his shoulders and take muscle testing to its next level through your research and discoveries.
Targeted Muscle Testing teaches you how to muscle test and then specifically teaches 31 easy-to-learn muscle tests that are commonly found chronically weak in adults one or both sides of the body.
Quick Self Fixes are taught on a video and book that teach 32 self treatments which usually make and keep all of the Targeted Muscle Tests strong. Targeted Muscle Testing and Quick Self Fixes go together because these repeatable muscle tests prove that Quick Self Fixes make and keep the previously found chronically weak muscles instantly strong. People who perform the 32 Quick Self Fixes regularly join “Our Strong Club”. Members of “Our Strong Club” test strong when all of the Targeted Muscle Tests are evaluated. This is truly a unique and cutting edge healing system.
A NEW PARADIGM The standard belief that exercise is the only way to make weak muscles strong is false! We now know that we can make a significant number of weak muscles instantly strong and keep them strong using specific connective tissue stretches and joint motions which we do to ourselves—the Quick Self Fixes.
Targeted Muscle Testing is bringing muscle testing to the mainstream by teaching how to test muscles exactly where muscles are commonly found chronically weak. Your success at finding weak muscles will be phenomenal! Your success at making these weak muscles instantly strong using Quick Self Fixes will be amazing!
Targeted Muscle Testing stands on its own. Quick Self Fixes is not the only healing system that instantly strengthens muscles. Yet, it may be the only healing system that makes and keeps these muscles consistently strong without the aid of others! You are encouraged to use Targeted Muscle Testing to evaluate and validate your healing systems of choice. For instance, Chiropractic, Assisted Yoga, Massage Therapy, Yoga, Cranial-Sacral Therapy, Physical Therapy, Personal Training, and Acupuncture make all or some of the targeted muscle tests instantly strong. Even meditations, which facilitate the relaxation of muscles, can make weak muscles test instantly strong.
THIS IS A NEW PROFESSION When you find your results using Quick Self Fixes and Targeted Muscle Testing to be AMAZING, you are welcome to apply to join our team and become a certified workshop leader and help take Quick Self Fixes and Targeted Muscle Testing worldwide!
HISTORY OF MUSCLE TESTING AND TARGETED MUSCLE TESTING
In 1949, Florence and Henry Kendell, both Physical Therapists, set the standard for medical muscle testing in their book entitled Muscles, Testing and Function.
In 1964, Dr. George Goodheart, Chiropractor, began developing Applied Kinesiology. Applied Kinesiology took muscle testing to a whole new level, including an eclectic system for making weak muscles instantly strong. Applied Kinesiology is primarily practiced by Chiropractors.
In 1980, Dr. Alan Beardall, Chiropractor, began publishing a series of books on Clinical Kinesiology which elaborated on the concept of testing sections of muscles individually.
In 1993, Dr. Clay discovered Subtle Muscle Palpation. (Subtle Muscle Palpation is taught in the Quick Self Fixes/Targeted Muscle Testing Workshop.) Subtle Muscle Palpation is a way of lightly touching the skin over muscles, quickly discovering subtle variations in muscle tone, thereby distinguishing between weak and strong parts of muscles. The skin over weak muscle sections feels flaccid or soft to the touch while skin over strong muscle sections feels firm. This led to a startling realization.
Traditional muscle testing misses more muscle weakness than it finds. Traditional muscle testing does not actually test the whole muscle as it indicates. Dr. Clay’s research proves that in medium to large muscles, the entire muscle is not weak; yet, isolated sections within these muscles are commonly weak. For example, the center or belly of larger muscles are commonly found weak, while the origin and insertions of these muscles commonly test strong. Targeted Muscle Testing teaches individuals how to test muscles exactly where sections of muscles are found chronically weak in adults. Muscle testing people exactly where they are weak is easy. Dr. Clay has figured this out for you! Mostly by inventing muscle tests focusing on testing the bellies of sections of muscles.
Dr. Clay has pinpointed 31 important muscle tests which are easy to learn and are commonly found weak in adults on one or both sides of the body. Twenty-four of these 31 muscle tests do not exist in contemporary literature. Through necessity, Dr. Clay developed these 24 muscle tests to specifically target chronically weak muscles or sections of muscles discovered through Subtle Muscle Palpation.

Twenty-four of these 31 muscle tests do not exist in contemporary literature. Th rough necessity, Dr. Clay developed these 24 muscle tests to specifically target chronically weak muscles or sections of muscles discovered through Subtle Muscle Palpation. Out of hundreds of muscle tests, Dr. Clay has focused on 62 muscle tests which he has discovered to be commonly weak. This list of muscle tests is referred to as the Golden List. Of these 62 tests, 31 have been chosen to be the muscle tests for this course. This list of 31 tests is fondly referred to as the Diamond List. The beauty of the Diamond List is that when these muscles are all made strong, the rest of the 31 muscle tests on the Golden List usually become strong as well! For instance, infraspinatus and supraspinatus are on the Diamond List and hence are two of the targeted muscle tests in this course. The same Quick Self Fixes which make these two muscle tests strong also make two other muscle tests on the Golden List strong; subscapularis and teres minor. These four muscles are the rotator cuff muscles. In this example, two muscle tests represent a total of four muscle tests. This saves a lot of time and effort!
