cross over

asymmetric means to do your exercises in a cross over method where you are not just doing muscle building like weight lifters, in straight lines,

asymmetric rigidity building is when you use a cross motion to build tendon strength so that when you apply a twisted pressure, like a soccer player kicking a ball, the strength is there when the body is in a twisted position.
You will see a lot of footballers stretching asymmetrically before a game.

Asymmetric Rigidity just means strength in a asymmetric way.

asymmetric rigidity

In a medical context, rigidity is stiffness of the muscles, that is, the muscles are tensed or spastic. Asymmetric means the rigidity is on the right but not the left, or visa versa.
