Athletes must master moving through a full range of motion on a single leg to cope with the intense and diverse deceleration demands of sport. Good strength and control on a single leg frees the upper body to perform complex and precise sports skills. We often see upper body postures fail under intense lower body impact loads which makes expert technique crumble under physical pressure. The Lunge Progression challenges athletes from every direction in a range of tasks prioritising upper body posture throughout.
Exercises in the Fundamentals Theme build directly upon the skills learned previously. We progress to exercises that become the bedrock of effective strength training by challenging the athlete to maintain postural excellence while resisting against poor positions. With greater opportunity for intensification, postural control and strength development occur in parallel. In doing so, the movements that we are strengthening are not at odds with the dynamic and fluid sports skills that we seek to enhance.
