Often times it is necessary to simplify a “drill” to establish a “skill”.
Over time, matching up the puzzle pieces will result in a movement pattern that we seek.
This drill breaks down the important movement of triple leg extension (hip, knee, and foot) to mainly just hip transfer. Part of practice can be very useful in teaching proper movement patterns and techniques in the early stages of training programs.
Virtually all lower body movements begins with the hips. Consequently, lack in strength, extensibility (traditional thought of as “flexibility”), power, mobility, or elasticity (ability for the muscle to recoil) will lead to sub-optimal performance in the overall movement. This is why we begin this drill on our knees, rather than on our feet. Working from the ground up!
