Good morning and happy Saturday!! Wanna feel some cramps, see how your legs listen to your brain and call on that core more automatically? Try these fun drills, an oldie but a goodie...then some more hip mobility....handstand and out....it's what I do!! Happy moving city!!
Heavy Yolk 1/4 Squats to fix your hyperextension fault. .
The cue ‘hips back’ is a great way to get athletes to engage their posterior chain and disperse some weight into their heels. However, for some athletes, ‘hips back’ turns into lumbar extension to start the movement. This is not the intent. Having heavy compressive loads on your spine and moving it into and out of extension with every lift is a really good way to flare up your lumbar spine and SI joints. .
Fix the motor pattern by getting under a heavy yolk. With loads heavier than one typically squats, it forces a better braced position and hip hinge engagement versus an extension moment of the low back. Your body will not want to hyperextend under this load.
