Hang Snatch

Hang Snatch

The Hang Snatch is a power training exercise for professional athletes to enhance hip flexor speed. The Hang Snatch is a compound exercise, which focuses on improving the synergy of the neuromuscular system, learning the snatch receive (improving hip flexor speed), improving explosiveness of hip extensor musculature while transitioning into shoulder shrug, improving body control...
Clean Pull

Clean Pull

The Clean Pull is a compound power exercise for professional athletes to improve neuromuscular system efficiency and develop explosive hip extensors for more powerful shots. The Clean Pull is part of the Olympic lifts such as the ultimate total body power exercise, the Power Clean. Since the Clean Pull is a free-weight exercises that activates...
RDL to High Receive

RDL to High Receive

The RDL to High Receive is a compound resistance training exercise to improve the synergy of the neuromuscular system, explosive hip extension and strengthen the hip- and trunk extensors. Since the RDL to High Receive is a free-weight exercise activating numerous muscle groups simultaneously we can improve kinetic chain efficiency, body control and coordination. Because...
High Pull

High Pull

The High Pull is a compound exercise, which focuses on improving the synergy of the neuro-muscular system, explosiveness of hip extensor musculature while transitioning into shoulder shrug, body control & coordination, flexibility as well as improving skill & balance foundation for complex movements. Note: If the athlete has flexibility issues, a stance wider than shoulder-width...
Jump Shrug

Jump Shrug

The Jump Shrug is a compound resistance training exercise to improve neuromuscular function and explosiveness of the hip extensors in preparation for Olympic lifts. Since the Jump Shrug activates numerous muscle groups simultaneously and in sync we can improve transfer of energy, body control and coordination. Because the Jump Shrug is an essential component of...
Static Hamstring Stretching

Static Hamstring Stretching

Hamstring stretching enhances flexibility of the hip extensors, reduces the risk for injury and supports the muscle recovery process. Hamstring stretching becomes important especially following speed, agility and quickness training or explosive hip flexion/hip extension resistance training because the hamstrings have to handle high force output. Hamstring injuries also can occur due to strength imbalances...
Hamstrings and Erector Spinae Stretch

Hamstrings and Erector Spinae Stretch

The Hamstrings and Erector Spinae Stretch improves flexibility of the knee flexors, trunk extensors and possibly the calves. You should be regularly stretching out the hamstrings after intense practice sessions on the court or lower-body strength workouts in the gym to reduce the risk for injury and reduce the onset of delayed muscle soreness the...
Dynamic Glute & Calve Stretch: High Knee Pull with Dorsi Flexion

Dynamic Glute & Calve Stretch: High Knee Pull with Dorsi Flexion

The dynamic glute and calve stretch high knee pull with dorsi flexion prepares the musculature of the buttocks and calves for explosive movements on the court. The dynamic glute and calve stretch warms up the respective musculature, reduces the risk for injury and improves flexibility and stability by increasing muscle tissue temperature. The high knee...
