JUST WOW! . #repost @challengerstrength with @repostsaveapp · · · 😳 Some INSANITY from Washington State U Track & Field record holder Ray Wells Jr. (@raywells_05) . . 📖 I remember reading from Yuri Verkhoshansky talking about compounding kinetic energy from consecutive ground force interactions . . 🦵Stiffness: ratio of ground force reaction to vertical hip displacement... becomes greater each hurdle (higher) . . THIS is insane. . . Output ⬆️ . Stiffness ⬆️ . . 🤓 His limbs encounter MORE force each time (because he’s descending from greater heights), yet he maintains resiliency of his limbs. Elite elasticity at its finest! . . @performanceptsc @julianlocasto @strong_by_science #challengerstrength#theunitfactory#sportsperformance#explosive#speed#power#athleticism#elite

Here I have my awesome basketball athlete @yelenaleu performing a single leg hang clean from an single leg eccentric isometric RDL. Olympic lifts are incredible movements for improving athletic performance particularly components dealing with power, speed, explosiveness, and even strength & force production. However, balance & stability, particularly unilateral aspects, are equally important attributes typically not addressed during Olympic lifts. Additionally, aspects of symmetry and motor control when comparing sides of the body (left vs. right) in all biomotor capabilities are critical. Unfortunately most lifters have one side of the body they tend to favor oftentimes producing & contributing to greater imbalances & deficits in strength, power, mobility, stability, & motor control, ultimately leading to greater risk of injury. These can be further ingrained during traditional bilateral movements including double leg jumps & traditional Olympic lifts. Performing Olympic lifts from a single leg position particularly when using an eccentric isometric RDL helps to resolve many of these issues. Here are 10 reasons why single leg Olympic lifts with eccentric isometrics are so effective. 1. Allow the athletes to target each hip more intensely & with greater overload than the traditional bilateral versions of Olympic lifts. That’s because the athlete can typically handle 55-65% of the load they could handle on the bilateral counterpart. 2. Provide more low back friendly variations of Olympic lifts as the total load is considerably less than bilateral versions thereby reducing stress to the spine. 3. Provide more shoulder and wrist friendly options as the catch phase is considerably less demanding due to the relatively lighter loads. 4. Teach athletes to control their power as lack of motor control will cause the athletes to lose their balance. 5. Reminds the athlete to…Read more in full article at LINK IN BIO or copy paste
