PART 8 of the #SingleLegStrength Training Series with @matthewibrahim_: Single Leg Step-Up Progressions (Lateral Focus)

______________________________

The video above contains the following Single Leg Step-Up Progressions:

1. DB Goblet Lateral Step-Up w/ Eccentric Lower

2. DB Lateral Dynamic Step-Up w/ Counterweight Press

3. DB/Plate Step-Up w/ Overhead Press & Hip Flexion
______________________________

BENEFITS:

Single Leg Step-Up progressions provide an important building block for athletes to not only control the hips and pelvis together, but also as a way to build strength on one leg at a time to enhance performance output and mitigate the likelihood of injury. These progressions also bring to light whether or not the athlete demonstrates hip instability between sides. From a training program and exercise dosage standpoint, these progressions provide deeper insight for the S&C Coach to prescribe the necessary implements to enhance single leg strength.

COACHING KEYS:

Be sure that the leg on the step/bench is doing the work. A common mistake is to push off significantly with the ground leg. Keep your knee from caving in. Avoid a drop of the hip/pelvis on the side opposite the step/bench. Keep from rocking into low back extension during the overhead press progression.
