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...
Dynamic Squat with Overhead Reach Stretch

Dynamic Squat with Overhead Reach Stretch

The Dynamic Squat with Overhead Reach Stretch warms up the muscles acting on the knee, hip and shoulders used during serving and groundstrokes. The dynamic squat with overhead reach stretch prepares various muscle groups for burst action, reduces the risk for injury, improves flexibility of the glutes and lats and enhances stability properties. If you...
