ADVANCED MED BALL EXERCISES

Looking to progress your workouts for sports or performance? Here are 3 different high level exercises that you can try to continue to build dynamic speed, power, and control. 

Lateral bound with hop up/down - A great activity to practice controlled explosiveness and reducing energy leaks. If there are compensatory patterns replacing control like excess pelvic rotation, sidebending in trunk when landing, and hip hiking, it will create an increase in energy output. 

Box jump, chest pass, and shuffle - Open floor/space transition or unsettled play training requires a lot of moving pieces and having to adapt on the go. This activity can help train quick transitions to the next component of a play build up while maintaining appropriate control and precision. 

Single leg hamstring isometric with overhead ball toss - a full body control activity. This could be a great activity to work on core and lat eccentric control with a lower extremity component. 

Throw these into your workouts for a functional workout if you’re wanting to improve dynamic control of your hips with high intensity activities.

SERRATUS EXERCISES FOR SHOULDER stability

Here are 3 different serratus movements that you can do if you have had shoulder instability and pain! The serratus acts as as stabilizer for the scapula, allowing proper articulation of the scapulothoracic joint. Practicing these three movement can provide stability for reaching and overhead lifting. 

1.) Supine serratus punch w/ dumbell - This exercise is a great way to have support from the floor. Use weight that you can control through the range and really focus on reaching forward without bending or extending the elbow to get proper activation of the serratus. 

2.) Banded wall slides - a great movement to get activation of the rotator cuff and the serratus together to improve shoulder stability with reaching/overhead motions. This one is quite fatiguing so use a lower resistance band to start and work your way up! 

3.) Serratus+ plank - this is a great alternative for traditional planks. Adding in the reach component can turn a normal plank into a 2 for 1 exercise. This one you want to maintain neutral trunk position and avoid getting movement from the spine!

Give these a shot and let us know how they go!

DO YOU HAVE BACK WHEN DRIVING?

Most car seats place your back into a posterior pelvic tilt which isn't optimal for your spine. Here is a simple solution to try out. Roll up a towel and place it parallel to the seat and your spine. You should feel more supported and have a more neutral pelvis. 

LMK how this goes.
