What is recovery?

By Ryan Golec | Mar 11, 2017

We train hard. We train hard again the next day, and the next day, and the next day. We see inspirational quotes about finding a way. Train through the fatigue, train through the soreness. Pictures of massive muscle bound men and lean ripped girls lifting heavy weights, running hills, challenging themselves everyday… who wouldn’t want…

Healthy Movement At Any Age

By Marc Digesti | Feb 17, 2017

Performance EDU is a place where movement happens. You see, with life, we constantly create patterns of poor movement, restricted movement, painful movement, imbalanced movement, and overall inefficient movement. We can improve athlete’s movement, and they perform better. But we think that the real damage is done through years of desk jobs and car rides,…

Lower Cross Syndrome Create Lower Back Pain?

By Marc Digesti | Feb 10, 2017

The lower-crossed syndrome is a postural distortion syndrome affecting the lower kinetic chain (lumbopelvic hip complex, knee, and ankle). The lower kinetic chain is one of two basic parts of the musculoskeletal system that are controlled and innervated through the CNS. The muscles can often serve as “windows” to the function of the CNS.The CNS…

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! Marc…

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…
