Movement Patterns & Shoulder Mobility for Sprinter & Jumpers

The video shows an excellent routine for the shoulders and legs. I learnt this of a great swedish personal trainer called Johan, here in Oslo. Combining isometric posture holds with mobility and balance, this training is especially good for reducing stiffness in the shoulders and upper back, allowing a full range of motion when running and jumping. This type of training allows sprinters to be less tense, with a larger range of movement, which will conserve energy when they are running fast at a high stride frequency.

I highly recommend a 10 good sessions in 3 weeks. Each session is 3 circuits of the routine, this really opens up the shoulders and chest areas. It feels so good, and after that once or twice a week to maintain the movement. Your overhead lifting is a guaranteed to improve.

Come to Bare Trening in Oslo and I will show you how!

    Right. I have read. That when you want to jump higher you should also work not only for your lower body as well as with your upper.

      Of course, running is controlled by the arms, your body needs to be balanced like the world you live in. The drive of the arms at take off has the same force as the lead knee (Depena 199f)

    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve
    had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.


  6. Unquestionably imagine that which you stated. Your favourite justification seemed to be
    at the net the easiest thing to consider of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst other folks think about concerns that they plainly don’t
    recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and also outlined
    out the whole thing with no need side-effects , other people can take
    a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot
    of it is popping it up all over the web without my
    authorization. Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being stolen?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Way cool! Some very valid points! I appreciate you writing this write-up plus the rest of the website is also really good.


  10. Unreal article mate. Just wondering if you had any advice as when the best time to run through this routine would be? If I want to pair it with my track and gym sessions; is it better to run through it before or after training?
