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...
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....
Forward Lunge

Forward Lunge

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 it opens...
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...
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...
Front Squat

Front Squat

The front squat is a compound resistance training exercise to strengthen the knee- and hip extensors and prepare the athlete for more complex movements during Olympic lifts. Because the front squat is a compound exercise activating numerous muscle groups simultaneously, it improves neuromuscular system efficiency. In addition the front squat improves body control and flexibility...
