Improving ankle joint range of motion (ROM) should be a stable of your prehab routine. Ankle dorsiflexion (DF), in particular, is a major roadblock to many movement patterns such as squats and pistol squats. Over the next 2 days, we’ll be posting 2 different ankle...

While clinical research has identified a number of metabolic factors and histological changes in muscle fibers following eccentric training, a direct correlation between muscle hypertrophy and eccentric training still has yet to be firmly established. However, we do know that muscle disruption causes satellite cell...

Adding dynamic movements to a plank is a great way to progress from an isometric core training routine to a more functional core stability training regimen. Dynamic movements perturb your center of mass, forcing your core to stabilize as you move. Additionally, arm and leg...

While weakness of the hip abductors is often times the culprit for medial knee collapse, a lack of motor control can also be the source. This is especially prevalent among higher end athletes who demonstrate medial knee collapse with functional activities. In this case, the athlete...

The biceps brachii not only flexes the elbow, but also supinates the forearm (aka the radioulnar joint). Thus, when performing a biceps curl with the forearm supinated, you can maximize biceps brachii activation. The brachioradialis not only flexes the elbow, but also serves to pronate AND...
