Day 7

Breathing

Most of you reading this are wondering... "How can breathing benefit my mechanics?"

And there's the problem. Mechanics. Mechanics. Mechanics! 

Most of you don't have a mechanical problem, you have a movement problem. And a big part of moving correctly requires you to breathe correctly. So, until you can prove that you can breathe properly, there's no point in going any further. 

It's that important! 

Anchor Your Hammock

Focus on the quality of the movement, not the number of repetitions. 4 reps is a good guideline, but if you need to do more or less, do more or less. It's all about the quality, not the quantity.

Hinge Resist

Hinge Assist

Watch the video to the right.

If you lack the pelvic control to lift the front leg without it affecting the back leg/foot... You’re wasting your time training anything later in delivery.

The two drills below will help you FEEL lifting from the middle and gain pelvic control.

Lying Down Leg Lifts

Ankle Stability Lifts

Corkscrew The Hips

Rotate in Small Circles

When performing any Core Velocity Belt drills, we stress rotating in small circles.

Watch the video to the right to understand rotating in small circles. Using constrains like PVC pipes on the sides of the bands help to give feedback on how the drill is being performed.

Why we start inside the double knee position: 

  • The primary reason is stability. 
  • By starting on the knees, it forces players to initiate rotation via the middle of the body by utilizing the glutes instead of the knees or feet. 
  • Most players struggle to effectively rotate because they confuse extending the hips with rotating the hips.

Focus on the quality of the movement, not the number of repetitions. 4 reps is a good guideline, but if you need to do more or less, do more or less. It's all about the quality, not the quantity.
