Helpful descriptions of some of the more difficult or lesser-known exercises listed above.
- Single Leg Deadlift – Watch a brief video demonstration here.
- Good Morning – Begin with weights behind your back at shoulder height. Keep your back tight, shoulder blades pinched together, and your knees slightly bent. Bend at the hips, moving them back as you bend over to near parallel. Keep your back arched and your cervical spine in proper alignment. Reverse the motion by extending through the hips with your glutes and hamstrings to return to upright starting position.
- Plyo Lunges – Stand in a split stance, right leg in front and left leg in back. Bend your knees and lower into a lunge, keeping the front knee behind the toe. In an explosive movement, jump into the air and switch your legs, landing so that the left leg is in front and the right leg is in back. Land with soft joints, lower into a lunge and repeat, jumping and switching sides.
- Iron Cross – Stand with feet shoulder width apart holding a weight/resistance band in each hand and lift arms to your sides so that your torso and the arms form the letter “T” (palms should be facing forward). This will be your starting position. Slowly squat down, holding back erect as if you were going to sit on a chair, andÂ simultaneously bring the arms in front of you until the palms of the hands are facing each other. Continue with the squat motion until your thighs are parallel to the floor, keeping arms extended throughout. Return to starting position by simultaneously moving arms out away from your sides (forming a “T”) as you stand upright.
