How Do You Move?

By Marc Digesti | Mar 12, 2017

Movement compensations can lead to repetitive strain to the musculoskeletal system resulting in chronic injury.  Injury potential may be decreased when the training session is based around identifying and correcting common movement dysfunctions.  When having movement compensations, they are usually in a result of injury, pain, muscled stiffness and/or muscle weakness. Here are some terms…

The muscles can often serve as “windows” to the function of the CNS.The CNS…

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…

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.
