Overhead Squat

Overhead Squat

The overhead squat is a compound resistance training exercise to strengthen the hip extensors and prepare the athlete for more complex movements, like the Snatch. The overhead squat is an essential exercise if you want to be able to perform more explosive exercises such as the Hang Snatch. In addition to strength gains you can...
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...
Deadlift to Upright Row

Deadlift to Upright Row

The deadlift to upright row is a compound exercise to improve neuromuscular system efficiency and explosiveness of the hip extensors. Since the deadlift to upright row activates numerous muscle groups simultaneously we can improve energy transfer via the neuromuscular system, body control and coordination. At the same time, the deadlift to upright row teaches you...
Front Squat to Press

Front Squat to Press

The Front Squat to Press is a compound exercise to improve neuromuscular system efficiency and strengthen the hip- and knee extensors. Since the Front Squat to Press emulates the closed-stance and activates numerous muscle groups simultaneously we can improve energy transfer via the neuromuscular system, body control and coordination. The Front Squat to Press prepares...
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...
Lateral Step Up

Lateral Step Up

The lateral step up is a compound resistance training exercise to strengthen the hip abductors, knee- and hip extensors and enhance lateral movement capabilities. The lateral step up activates numerous muscle groups simultaneously, thereby improving neuromuscular system efficiency, and because of the single foot action it also improves dynamic stability. Since the lateral step up...
Step Up

Step Up

The step up is a compound resistance training exercise to strengthen the hip- and knee extensors and improve neuromuscular system efficiency, coordination and body control. Since we have single-leg action during the step up we can rectify any strength imbalances of the glutes and quadriceps of the left- and right leg while improving dynamic stability....
