CALVES | ROTATIONAL ABS

——————————–

RANGE OF STRENGTH MOBILITY & RESILIENCY :

 

STANDING COUCH STRETCH WITH
INTERNAL & EXTERNAL HIP ROTATION
use an adj. bench with knee on seat and leg up the
90 degree side of bench. standing upright to bias stretch
onto the hip flexors, you can articulate your hips to
internally and externally rotate them.
2 sets : 10 to 15 stretched reps

 

THORACIC SPINE OPENERS ON FOAM ROLLER
roller placed on t spine and don’t foam roll, but reach overhead
and try to open your spinal column by touching thumb to the floor.
do one side at a time – i use db weight to help exaggerate this
motion.
2 sets : 10 to 15 reps  on each hip/leg

 

EXAGGERATED DB FLY CHEST OPENER
done from flat bench with held negative and arms aimed
at going straight. choose a light loading to encourage stretch
and hold until it really starts burning.
2 sets : long held stretches

 

LYING MED BALL HIP INT. ROTATED POSTERIOR
PELVIC TILT THRUST
laying on your back with med ball between your knees
and feet slightly wider to bias internal hip rotation. your legs

into posterior pelvic tilt and hold for 30 seconds.
3 sets : 30 second iso holds.

1. CROSS CONNECT SIDE PLANK CRUNCH

tucking in towards each other.
3 sets : 0-1 RIR
*do both ways

2. ROMAN CHAIR OBLIQUE RAISE
( 45 degree extension piece)
sitting in the roman chair sideways with top leg hooked in
and hip at the top edge of the pad. its like a side bend movement
but anchored in and way harder and more of a stretch position.
3 sets : 0-1 RIR
*prog overload bar each set to make it more difficult to hold

3. STANDING CALF RAISE 21’S
hip width stance and train the raise as follows
7 reps in the bottom range
7 reps full range
7 reps top range
3 sets : 21-21-21

4. SEATED CALF RAISE
inside hip width stance with toes pointed
inward slightly.
3 sets : 12-10-10 + partials
*prog overload each set in succession

5. MAX HR HIIT SEQUENCE
(sub extra mobility work if you need that )
work up to an all out sustained sprint on any cardio
piece of your choice, or actually running. use about  5
total sets building the intensity each time. duration should
not exceed 1 minute on any round – especially the last one.
5 sets : increased effort each set
*this effort should knock you on your ass with exhaustion. start working
on finding your redline ( but safely ).
