Jump Training

A progression of plyometric training meant to move from introductory weight and force acceptance. It starts with basic hopping (alternating legs and small distances), progresses to same leg hopping before moving to more advanced jumping (vertical height emphasis), then on to even greater demands of bounding (horizontal distance emphasis). ALL of these with focus on motor control and always landing in an “athletic position”. This means slightly flexed knee, flexed…

Shoulder Core Circuit

This is a shoulder and core strengthening exercise series with closed kinetic chain emphasis.  Basically, that means your hand is on the ground (versus in the air holding weights or bands like most strengthening exercises).  Completing exercises in this manner focuses on dynamic shoulder stability while also activating your core. For all of the progressions in this video, start on your knees and complete 10 reps on each arm.  Make sure…

Dynamic Hamstring Mobility

Here are 2 exercises that dynamically shorten and lengthen the hamstring complex and the posterior chain musculature. These are active mobilizations – pausing at the lengthening (tightening) phases and gradually moving in and out of these positions.  You could complete 10-15 of each of these several times/day if you are looking to improve your mobility.
