Lateral Lunge

By | Movements | No Comments

 

**Be sure to foam roll calves/quads/hamstrings and warm up with dynamic movements prior to any strength training**

For the lateral lunge begin with body weight only, starting with  your non-dominant leg.  Complete 3 sets of 8-10 receptions and be sure to watch your form ensuring that:
1- Your foot, knee, & hip of the working leg are in alignment

2- Your non-working leg is straight, knee is not bent, and that the outside of your foot stays in contact with the ground

3- You keep your eyes looking forward to avoid dropping your chest

Single Leg Hip Extension

By | Movements | No Comments

**Be sure to foam roll calves/quads/hamstrings and warm up with dynamic movements prior to any strength training**

—-

I recommend you begin this, or any single leg movement, with body weight until you can complete 3 sets of 8-10 repetitions keeping your hip & spine in alignment.
Be sure to hinge from your hip and not bend from your knee, and stand up by engaging your glute vs. pulling from your back.

Assisted Single Leg Squat

By | Movements | No Comments

 

**Be sure to foam roll calves/quads/hamstrings and warm up with dynamic movements prior to any strength training**
—-
This is the first movement to progress into single leg strength training. You can use the non-working “assisting” leg as much or as little as needed.
If you are a beginner to strength or a seasoned endurance athlete but have not focused on single leg movements I recommend starting with body weight only working 3 sets of 8-10 repetitions.
Advanced athletes with single leg strength experience feel free to hold a kettle bell or dumbbell/dumbbells for added resistance. Sets/reps can be based on your training cycle for that session.
**this is also a great movement for active recovery and/or warm up**

By | Podcast | No Comments

In this episode Coach Mo takes a break from athlete interviews to give you insight on:

– The importance of single leg training to prevent overuse injury and musculoskeletal imbalances

– How to implement single leg training into your weekly strength program and daily training

– The extreme importance of implementing deep breathing/breath work and meditation to your daily routine

– How breath work has helped an athlete with Parkinson’s improve performance/reduce tremors, and how it helped Coach Mo produce his fastest swim times in 10 years

– The use of Nootropics and Exogenous ketones to improve daily energy, clear brain fatigue, and improve athletic performance
