Hip Strength & Mobility: Starting with the feet and calves we’ll explore both subtle and explosive leg movements working our way into glute/ham strength and mobility along with balanced hip flexor and quad exercises.
Core Strength: Practitioners who follow these core exercises will notice they last longer in individual workouts, recover faster, move more efficiently and are less injury prone compared to peers who fail to condition their core.
Shoulders: Exercises that train the shoulder as it was mean to be used building scapula strength in protraction, retraction, elevation and depression. Although the shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body, imbalances and lack of proper mobility training often rob athletes of their potential mobility, the exercises introduced will lead to great strength and mobility and help relive joint pain due to imbalances.
