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...
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...
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...
Back Squat

Back Squat

The back squat is a compound resistance training exercise to strengthen the hip- and knee extensors. In addition, the back squat can be used to improve neuromuscular efficiency, body control and flexibility. It’s a skill and balance foundation for complex movements, such as Olympic lifts, because it activates numerous muscle groups simultaneously and it forces...

Russian Lean

The Russian Lean is a calisthenic exercise for advanced athletes to improve knee flexor strength, body control and coordination. Russian Lean Description Place floor mat on the ground Kneel on the mat with knees underneath the shoulder and maintain neutral spine – and pelvic position; the other person maintains feet and lower legs on the...
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...
