Goblet Squat.
.
.
This is a foundational pillar for all of our athletes.
.
.
This exercise reintroduces and reinforces a vital developmental pattern in a self limiting manner.
.
.
Often adolescent athletes will progress too quickly towards loading a barbell for Squat variations.
.
.
Development can’t be rushed. It should be thought of as a 5 year plan at minimum.
.
.
All of these young athletes will have far better technique/strength/power  when they get to a college setting after spending time “grooving” their foundational patterns.

Repeated Lateral / Anterior Bounds🚀
.
.
This advanced level plyometric exercise emphasizes the ability to create rapid force PRODUCTION into the ground and to be able to stabilize unilaterally; or ABSORB this force.
.
.
.
This is not a beginner level exercise variation.  Your progressions over time should only lead you up to an exercise of this difficulty if you’re capable of doing so.

Sled Pulls.
.
.
We utilize various sled movements on a weekly basis🛷
.
.
This can be a great variable level conditioning tool that helps to build work capacity💪
.
.
This variation seen here is highly knee dominant and is seemingly unmatched in terms of the challenge it can present.🔥🔥

1/2 Kneeling Chop.
.
.
Another dynamic core stabilization movement that forces the Athlete to maintain stability in their pelvis & trunk.
.
. 
This progression narrows the base of support (from tall kneeling or both knees down) and increases difficulty as this drastically alters the postural demand as the mass is moved.

🐻 Bear Crawl.
.
.
Crawling is a developmental movement pattern that we can quickly lose over time with inactivity.
.
.
This is a great exercise as it challenges motor control and is tremendous for stability of the shoulder / scapula & trunk(core).
.
.
This is also great for people of any age as we should always incorporate tasks that challenge motor control, stability & reciprocal patterning 🧠
.
.
Give it a try.
.
.
Don’t use the cup of water though until you have mastered it 🙂💪💧💧

Burst to Deceleration to Change of Direction ⚡️⚡️
.
.
This simple progression builds upon our deceleration progressions.
.
.
Being able to build & use your body’s braking system properly is extremely important in long term athletic development.
.
.
Spend an adequate amount of time hammering home the basics of deceleration.
.
.
Do the movement. Not the drill.

Steal Starts.
.
.
.
Work on acceleration drills from positions you will use.
.
.
Relax your upper body so you can be smooth, fast & powerful.
.
.
Create good shin angles with your “jump” so you can create maximal horizontal force.
.
.
Push, push, push as much force into the ground as possible.
.

Neural drive + Trunk stability = distal velocity

Here is a great representation of how true power is expressed.

Single Leg Continuous Hop.
.
.
.
This advanced level progression allows the athletes to build upon single leg force production & absorption.... both very important in athletics for power/speed & injury protection.
.
.
This is not a beginner level drill.
Progress only when capable.

Strength comes from doing something you once thought you couldn’t.
.
.
.
Strength training for females is extremely important....Especially as developing competitive athletes. .
.
The total body strength & stability that is created from good training is something that will serve them extremely well once their competitive season starts...as well as for the next few years of their athletic development.
.
.
.
Don’t limit yourself.
.
.
Try, succeed.
Try, fail.
Try again.
Win.

Med Ball Load & Drive.
.
.
This is another great advanced drill that allows for developing & transferring force from the ground up.
.
.
This drill also is specifically great for allowing the Athlete to “feel” their back hip and create explosive power.
