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.Read More
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…Read More
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…Read More
If you have shoulder pain, make sure you look at your thoracic spine. The thoracic spine has to have extension in order for the scapula to completely retract and allow full overhead movement. Poor t-spine extension can cause restricted and painful overhead movement. Forcing overhead position without proper t-spine extension can cause capsule instability and…Read More
