Parallel Rotation

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.

Parallel Rotation

Using the same set up as the chop & lift from the last two weeks, anchor the cord parallel to the ground at waist height. This time your will pull & rotate the extended arms across the body. Keep the head pointing toward a target in front during the pulling & rotating motion.

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