Another Phase Rotational Stability: Keiser Rotational Row

By Marc Digesti | Feb 10, 2017

The rotational row is a progressional power movement is the Rotational Stability Movement Tree. In a standing position, we will progress and work on lower half hip loading while engaging the core to have the thoracic spine do what it does best….rotate and mobilize.  Insert the POWER phase……Let’s create some POWER on Keiser Equipment!

Keiser Rotational Lifting Creates……..Power!

By Marc Digesti | Feb 2, 2017

At Performance EDU, we use Keiser Equipment. The great thing about our keiser equipment is, you can use it in any plane and at any speed.   The Keiser Rotational Lift is a progression of our rotary stability phase, but we are utilizing it into our lifting power series.

Leg Curls On The TRX

By Marc Digesti | Jan 31, 2017

The TRX is used for many different types of training, but in this article, we will talk about the lower half of the body.  In this video, my skiers are demonstrating a progressed leg curl and here is the purpose behind the movement: This is a great strength exercise to work on core and hip stability, but…

Developing Lateral Explosiveness: Phase 4

By Ryan Golec | Jan 29, 2017

In our final phase of lateral explosive development, we generate speed in our force pattern. We have spent time preparing the body to absorb the exponential load placed on it during the landing phase of the lateral jump. In this phase we work on the speed of transition and explosive concentric contraction that is the…

Developing Lateral Explosiveness: Phase 3

By Ryan Golec | Jan 29, 2017

Our 3rd progression of our lateral explosive pattern development is to develop transition with single leg stability. Without stability, power will create injury. On either side of the cable pull we create a different challenge to the hip/knee/ankle stabilization. Transitioning into a stable position from movement is the essence of agility.

Developing Lateral Explosiveness: Phase 2

By Ryan Golec | Jan 29, 2017

Our second progression of creating lateral explosive power is beginning to integrate lateral movement into our eccentric load. Here we begin to set our neural pattern in the lateral drive component. We still create the eccentric strength and stability loading on the outside leg to prepare it for the capacity to generate explosive force.

Developing Lateral Explosiveness: Phase 1

By Ryan Golec | Jan 29, 2017

The first phase of developing lateral explosive power is to prepare the body to absorb load. Eccentric load patterns are a great tool to begin to strengthening a pattern. Here we show the development of a lateral curtsy lunge with cable assist. we can safely develop the eccentric load pattern but not break form on…

How Do Skiers Hold Position (Stability)?

By Marc Digesti | Jan 28, 2017

After proper tissue length has been restored, we can create a phasic strength program to correct misalignment and movement efficiency. One of the biggest challenges to a skier with poor alignment is a change in their center of gravity. Being able to move efficiently down the hill requires quick, balanced turns. Poor alignment alters your…
