Speaker 1: Yeah. It will for sure help your leg strength and be able to kick up higher.
Megan: Oh yeah. Speaker 1: No doubt about it.
Megan: You can tell right... right whenever you take them off on the very first jump your
legs are... Speaker 1: Oh yes.
Megan: Your legs are poom! Speaker 1: Yeah. Jump training that takes
time. If you're going to improve a vertical, that's weeks of stuff, but these give you
immediate muscle recruitment for sure. Rock them. Get them up. Yes, completely different.
Megan: See, it didn't come down? Does it matter, bend or straight?
Speaker 1: We're going to try to keep it straight kind of as if you were going to do one of
those side holds. So, you want to try to keep your chest up just as if you were doing in
normal, but we're just going to isolate muscles. Megan: Okay.
Speaker 1: Okay. So now we are going to go front raise. You can either use balance or
no balance. You are going to try to get it up as high as you can and resist on the way
down. Megan: Balance as in going here?
Speaker 1: You can either go here or just go here and try to keep your leg straight
and resist on the way down. Megan: Go this side?
Speaker 1: So don't let this happen. Megan: Okay.
Speaker 1: It puts all the stress on your knee. Try to go toe out a little bit. There
it is. Megan: Doesn't go very out.
Speaker 1: That's fine. Unclip it and do it once. Well, you want to see a magic show?
Megan: Yes. Speaker 1: You've got a little more in you.
Come on. Isn't that silly though? Megan: Yes.
Speaker 1: Okay. We're going to go on a hurdle walk. So clip up. What you're going to do
is you're going to try to keep your foot underneath your knee. It's really good for your thighs
and your hip flexors. So for kicks, you're going to be able to get them up a little higher.
So we'll go backwards first. So you're going to open up your hip, set it down. Yes, try
to keep your foot underneath your knee. Good. All right. Now take it forward; same
concept. Open up the hip first. There it is. Smooth it out. Try and walk with it. Walk
with it. Okay. Go back. There it is. Unclip. Just let it fall. There you go. Now, go for
height and range of motion. Oh a smile. She's having fun now. This is
easy. Head on back. Work for height. This is when you get range of motion, flexibility
in your hips. So without the resistance, you've got to try to go for max height. Go forward.
Work high. Work high. Good.
