PowerBand Shoulder Harness Backward Running w Loaded Lunge Forward

Backwards loaded training is incredibly valuable because of its neurological reverse origin benefits. We have to pulse back strongly using plantar flexion, knee extension, and gutes work concentrically at the end of support phase step. For this reason, I highlight this movement as important when someone is established in their rehab for ACL injury. It […]

PowerBand Shoulder Harness. In Place Rhythm Skip

The 3 green PowerBand Shoulder Harness is one of the most effective ways to train Global Body Locomotion. We have the Horizontal and Vertical Frames of Reference present through ground forces and the fact that the Harness gives you vertical from the level of the shoulders. This in place skip is highly effective for training […]

Triangle Pose with a DNS Emphasis

Trikonasana or Triangle Pose is a Fundamental Posture in the Yoga Standing Postures. Triangle involves opening in the frontal plane while balancing on the line between the arch of the rear foot and heel of the front foot. The pelvis and trunk should follow the organic line of the push of the rear leg, while […]

Functional Lunge/Differentiated Squat/Differentiated Push

In this video Jordan “The Health Solution” Moncrieff demonstrates a very difficult 2 part Differentiated Posture. The key to this posture is the functional arrangement of the lunge heel and rear knee. Notice that the front lunge leg has the knee set to the line of the toes. This winds up the lower extremity along […]

Rotated Triangle with a DNS Emphasis

In this video, I describe the Rotated Triangle as the King of the Postures because of the arrangement of the feet and the fact that we are rotating our spine above this balance point. In the video, I coach the key points of how to come into the posture using deep system stability, how to […]

Coordination Skipping for Sprinting and Motor Programming

I outline the Body-Brain Development that happens when we cross the mid-line of the body. In particular the Communication across mid-line of the Corpus Callosum. This is key for Balanced Development. I start in place with; High Knee Stepping touching the Opposite knee Progress to Big Skipping in place. Explain the role of Shoulder Extension […]

Loading Movement using Shuttles

A Basic 20m Shuttle is demonstrated, out and back 20m, out and back 10m x2. The extended shuttle can be played with to load metabolically and neurologically. The key abilities being trained are acceleration, deceleration and change of direction.

Frontal Plane Movement/Change of Direction/Outside Leg Set

Moving side to side and Abduction are all Frontal Plane Movements. Dropping your Centre and being Ready I’m covering you (ready to change direction laterally). Load and Change in frontal plane. Outside leg set. Waltz 1, 2, 3.. Change Eveness, Lower your Centre of Gravity, Push to Change. Partner Agility (losing partner)

Loading Ways of Moving. Hops/Low Jumps/Sprint/Low Jumps

This is one of the most difficult complexes in the Ways of Moving Series. This is because, we don’t come up out of the low jump position, but stay low and drive. This keeps eccentric load in the quadriceps group. I created this complex for James Tomkins and Drew Ginn in their preparation for Athens […]

In Place Jumps. Introduction/Rhythm/Max Height

I describe why jumps are functionally superior to External Loading. 1. Triple Extension + Maximum Acceleration 2. Landings = Sophistication for CNS I define eccentric strength as the ability of the Muscle Chain to lengthen under tension and give an example using triple jump, of Movement Efficiency. In this video we explore jumps for Rhythm […]
