Posterior Shoulder Capsule Stretch

20 Apr Posterior Shoulder Capsule Stretch

Developing joint range of motion and soft tissue extensibility is imperative for optimal functioning of the kinetic chain. Limitations in joint mobility are often linked to a lack of extensibility of the soft tissues surrounding a specified joint. The result of soft tissue limitations is a corresponding lack of range of motion in the associated joint. Review of research provided by physical therapist Gray Cook and strength coach Mike Boyle we are aware of the mobility/stability pattern of human movement requires...

30 Mar Kettle Bell Wind Mill Performance Exercise

The L-P-H commonly referred to as the "core" encapsulates  all the articulate and soft tissue structures on the anterior, posterior, and lateral sections of the torso. This section of the kinetic chain includes the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex (L-P-H) and muscle groups such as the abdominals, obliques, erector spinae, glutes, adductors, abductors, and hamstring complex. Collectively these structures are responsible for a number of functions in the kinetic chain. These functions include; Postural control, assistance in optimal joint functioning, efficient transfer of...

Sports Performance Coach Sean Cochran on the 19th Hole Talk Radio Show by Dennis Silvers "Recognize in order to prevent a lower back injury in the sport of golf the body must have certain levels of hip mobility, stabilization of the core, and mobility of the thoracic spine to create the rotary requirements of the swing efficiently. If the golfer lacks mobility in the hips or thoracic spine the tendency will be for the body to recruit the lumbar spine to rotate...

Core Power Training

25 Feb Power Training for the Core

The development of speed is an imperative component for most all athletes. Generating Clubhead Speed, Bat Swing, Improving Your Tennis Serve, and Throwing Velocity are all athletic actions with rotary components. These Rotary Athletic Actions involve generating speed in a transverse plane. We recognize improving speed development from a physical perspective is contingent upon improving the power outputs of the neuromuscular system. Increasing the power outputs of the body will invariably provide the athlete(recreational to professional) the opportunity to Generate More Speed...

Lifting Misconceptions about Weights by Rex Hoggard “There’s nothing wrong with doing squats and deadlifts and push-ups,” said Sean Cochran, Phil Mickelson’s longtime trainer. “I have Phil do very similar things and they are conducive to the conditioning of an athlete. Along with that you have to do mobility training and core stabilization. I’ve seen [McIlroy] in the gym and don’t think he’s doing anything to hurt his golf swing.” - Sean Cochran Read More...

30 Dec Alternating Arm & Leg Extension Core Performance Exercise

The development of the stabilization capacities of the core is integral in the development of sports performance qualities within the athletic population. The health and fitness professional must recognize the process of developing the postural control, neuromuscular efficiency, and stabilization capacities of the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex is sequential in terms of exercise stages. This sequential process will begin with basic stabilization exercises with minimal movement requirements, and progress to more complex exercises. Initial core stabilization exercises will focus on engaging the deep...
