Jump Shrug

Jump Shrug

WERBUNG 1 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...
Forward Lunge

Forward Lunge

WERBUNG 1 The forward lunge is a compound resistance training exercise to strengthen the hip- and knee extensors. Since the forward lunge is a compound exercise, which activates numerous muscle groups simultaneously, neuromuscular system efficiency, coordination and body control will improve. Additionally, the forward lunge can be used to improve flexibility of the glutes and...
Traditional Deadlift

Traditional Deadlift

The traditional deadlift is a compound resistance training exercise to strengthen the hip- and knee extensors and prepare the athlete for Olympic lifts. Since the traditional deadlift activates numerous muscle groups simultaneously we can improve neuromuscular system efficiency, body control and coordination. The deadlift is fundamental for learning Olympic lifts starting from the floor and...
Modified Deadlift

Modified Deadlift

The modified deadlift is a compound resistance training exercise for individuals with pelvis flexibility issues to strengthen the hip- and knee extensors. The modified deadlift is ideal for beginners or athletes with flexibility issues because they can strengthen the musculature and improve body control and coordination for more complex activities. Since the modified deadlift activates...
Lateral Squat

Lateral Squat

The lateral squat is an essential compound resistance training exercise to strengthen the hip abductors, hip- and knee extensors and enhance lateral movement abilities. Because the lateral squat is a compound exercise activating numerous muscle groups simultaneously, body control and neuromuscular system efficiency can be improved. Since the lateral squat emulates the movement characteristics seen...
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...
Lunge And Twist Core Stretch

Lunge And Twist Core Stretch

The Lunge and Twist Core Stretch warms up the musculature of the legs and core used during stroke production. The lunge and twist core stretch is a total body dynamic stretch that reduces the risk for injury by increasing muscle tissue temperature and improves flexibility and stability. If you want the full benefits associated with...
Straight Leg Kicks Dynamic Hamstring Stretch

Straight Leg Kicks Dynamic Hamstring Stretch

The Straight Leg Kicks Dynamic Hamstring Stretch warms up the musculature of the posterior thigh used during running and serving. The straight leg kicks dynamic hamstring stretch prepares the hamstrings for explosive action, such as jumping during the serve, reduces the risk for injury and improves flexibility of the hamstrings by increasing muscle tissue temperature....
Romanian Deadlift - RDL

Romanian Deadlift – RDL

The Romanian deadlift (RDL) is a compound resistance training exercise to strengthen the hip- and trunk extensors, prepare the athlete for Olympic lifts and enhance pelvis flexibility. Since the Romanian deadlift activates the hamstrings and erector spinae simultaneously, we can enhance the synergy of the neuromuscular system, body control and coordination. The RDL is also...
