Lift Exercise

In many overhead sports, such as American football, baseball, tennis, golf, and lacrosse, which has the athlete’s hand or implement in an overhead position during the acceleration phase – the throw or swing action – the player can experience power leakages at any point during the release point or contact with the ball. Functional exercises mimic the activity needed to efficiently perform the overhead skill – reducing the loss of power in transition from two end points. Three such exercises are chop, lift, & parallel rotation.

Lift Exercise

Using the same set up as the chop from last week, attach the cord to the anchor close to the ground. This time use a pulling motion from low to high – reversing the chop motion. Try 10 reps and repeat to the opposite side.

Remember, you should always consult your physician before beginning any exercise, diet, or nutritional supplementation program.
