Sports Fitness Training - Slastix™ Push Pull Rotation
• Purpose – As part of sports conditioning this exercise trains rotary core force production in conjunction with whole body strength.
• Set up – have the athlete begin in a split stance position with 1 Slastix performance tubing in each hand (resistance from the left and the right side of the athlete) with chest up, core braced and legs loaded in triple flexion of the hips, knees and ankles. Coordination of this exercise is initially very challenging because the sequencing overloads the nervous system. (Coach should pre teach the push movement and the pull movements separately).
• Execution – the pulling arm executes a row as the pushing arm executes a chest press action along with linked rotation of the core and a pivot of the feet. The body rotates as a whole and pivots in the direction of the pulling arm. Increase the speed of the entire movement when coordination is refined.
