RANGE OF STRENGTH MOBILITY & RESILIENCY

BLOCKED UP HIP FLEXOR WALL STRETCH
IN SPLIT POSITION

loaded wall stretch with back knee on yoga blocks
and leg up wall. front leg out in normal split stance
and you want to hold the stretch as you explore some
tight spots with some movement.
2 sets : 5 to 10 pulsing but slow reps
*do both sides

 

ILLIACUS/PSOAS RELEASE
done using a mobility hook or a pso rite and digging into
the illiacus to break up adhesions and movement restrictions.
2-3 rounds of myofascial release

 

ADDUCTOR SMASH
done using an orb ball or foam roller and beating up the
adductors to help make them more pliable for better squat ranges.
2-3 rounds of myofascial release

 

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 arm

 

SESSION :

 

1. STANDING BEHIND THE BACK
BB WRIST CURL
palms away grip shoulder width articulating
flexion of the wrist.

2. BENCH SUPPORTED STRAIGHT BAR WRIST EXTENSION

extension. use flat bench for forearm support.
3 sets : 15-12-10

3. LYING REVERSE CRUCH WITH ABMAT
UNDER LUMBAR
this is a knee towards trunk tuck with bent knees.
focus on pulling your body into a crunch rather then
tucking your legs. your hips will lift off the floor on these and
you want to keep shoulders on the floor to force the abs to
take the resistance. when you do this right, these are a little
harder than you’d maybe expect.
3 sets : 0-1 RIR
*reps in reserve

 

 

4. SWISS BALL HYPEREXTENSION SIT UP
use large swiss ball to carefully hyperextend the spine on the
negatives. make sure you move to spinal flexion on the
positives to shorten the abs.
3 sets : 0-1 RIR
*reps in reserve

use exaggerated negatives for deep stretch.
soft knee, not locked out.
