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...
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...
Standing Military Press

Standing Military Press

The standing military press is a compound resistance training exercise to strengthen the musculature of the back and shoulder and prepare the athlete for Olympic lifts. Aside from enhancing strength, the standing military press improves body control, coordination and prepares you for complex movement, including overhead pressing action. Since the standing military press activated numerous...
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...
Supine Hip Lifts

Supine Hip Lifts

The Supine Hip Lifts is a calisthenic training exercise to strengthen the core. Aside from strengthening the trunk flexor musculature, the supine hip lifts improve neuromuscular system efficiency, body control and flexibility. Due to the fact that the core is essential for enhanced kinetic chain efficiency and its importance during stroke production you should regularly...
Push Jerk

Push Jerk

The Push Jerk is a compound resistance training exercise for advanced athletes to improve hip flexor speed, body control and coordination. Push Jerk Description Position barbell chest level on the rack; add resistance (plates) and attach safety clips Take an athletic stance; stand straight, feet are under the shoulders; knees slightly flexed; toes point forward...
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...
Lateral Raise with Rotation

Lateral Raise with Rotation

The Lateral Raise with Rotation is an essential resistance training exercise to strengthen muscles of the rotator cuff. Apart from strengthening the shoulder, the lateral raise with rotation improves shoulder integrity and power output by improving the synergy of the neuromuscular system, muscular endurance and dynamic stabilization of the rotator cuff musculature. If you don’t...
