Forward Lunge to Press

Forward Lunge to Press

The Forward Lunge to Press is a compound resistance training exercise to improve the neuromuscular system and strengthen the knee- and hip extensors and shoulder musculature. Since the Forward Lunge to Press is a free-weight exercise activating numerous muscle groups simultaneously we can improve kinetic chain efficiency, body control and coordination. Because tennis is bi-planar...
Lateral Squat to Press

Lateral Squat to Press

The Lateral Squat to Press is a compound resistance training exercise to improve neuromuscular function and strengthen the hip abductor & hip extensor, knee extensor, and shoulder musculature. Since the Lateral Squat to Press is a free-weight exercise activating numerous muscle groups simultaneously we can improve kinetic chain efficiency, body control and coordination. Because tennis...
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...
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....
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...
