Today's Edge:

Yesterday I posted on the importance of training for horizontal strength and power production. Here is the Cable Pull-Through. This exercise pairs nicely with the Band Resisted Broad Jump from yesterday's post. Swipe over to see the Band Resisted Broad Jump video.

BENEFITS:

This exercise targets your posterior glute muscles and your hamstrings. For some people traditional deadlifts are painful, difficult, or both. This exercise tends to be a more comfortable way to train the posterior chain and hip hinge motion. It will help you to develop strength in your hips and it challenges the core too.

COACHING KEYS:

Take a stance outside shoulder-width. Keep your elbows straight and avoid pulling with your arms. Let your hands go behind you as if you're hiking a football. Finish the motion in a statue tall posture with straight knees and a flat back. Control the motion down slowly. Keep the core engaged throughout to maintain a flat back top to bottom.

HOW TO USE:

This exercise pairs nicely with broad jumps or resisted broad jumps (swipe to see video). It's great on lower body day or as part of a total body lift. Shoot for 2-4 sets of 8-15 repetitions.
