The Ultimate Striking Machine
Post Activation Potentiation:
A heavy resistance exercise followed by an explosive movement involving the same muscle groups has been proven to provide an additional boost to power development. The Difference can facilitate this power development by pairing a heavy pressing exercise with resistance specific power training.
Upper Body Anaerobic Conditioning:
Many sports involve the upper body in a fashion, which requires adequate development of the alactic and glycolytic systems. The Difference allows for interval training with various levels of resistance, which will allow for the physiological development of these important anaerobic systems.
Upper Body Protraction and Retraction:
Proper scapular development and activation are crucial for cervical spine and shoulder function. Specific exercises allow for scapular protraction and retraction to be developed in a progressive fashion, which will aid in cervical spine and shoulder function.
Total Body Stabilization Training:
Certain sports require the ability to stabilize the body from a ground base position (i.e. a basketball player trying to establish position in the post). The Difference allows for targeted stability training without having a teammate or coach provide the resistance. This stability training is of particular importance when a player is coming back from a lower limb injury.
