Alternating Split Squat Jump

1) Stand with feet hip width apart. Take left leg and step back approximately 2 feet standing on the ball of back foot.
2) Feet should be positioned at a staggered stance with head and back erect and straight in a neutral position. Place hands on waist.
3) Lower body by bending at right hip and knee until thigh is parallel to floor then immediately explode vertically.
4) Switch feet in the air so that the back foot lands forward and vice versa.
5) Prior to takeoff extend the ankles to their maximum range (full plantar flexion) ensure proper mechanics.

DB Squat

1) Grasp DB’s and let arms hang down at sides.
2) Start position: Stand with feet slightly wider than hip width apart. Knees should be slightly bent.
3) Lower body by flexing at the hips and knees. Upper body can flex forward at the hips slightly (~5°) during movement. Be sure to “sit back” so that knees stay over the feet.
4) Once thighs are parallel to floor, return to start position.
5) Remember to keep head and back straight in a neutral position – hyperextension or flexion may cause injury. Keep weight over the middle of foot and heel, not the toes.
6) DO NOT allow knees to go past the big toe or deviate laterally or medially throughout movement. Keep abdominals tight throughout exercise by drawing stomach in toward spine.

Incline DB chest press

1. Start by lying on an inclined bench and hold dumbells at chest level with your palms facing forward.
2. Press the dumbells straight up towards the ceiling until your arms are extended.
3. Return to the starting position and repeat according to the prescribed repetitions.

Prone Hamstring Curl with Ball

1. Lie on your stomach and place a stability ball between your legs and hold it with the inside of your lower leg.

3) Pull body up until bar is below chin level.
