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.
