Frans Bosch Inspired Exercises – Strength and Conditioning
In the videos below you will see osteopath Heath Williams of Principle Four Osteopathy demonstrating few exercises inspired by Frans Bosch.
Single Leg RDL to Step Up
In the video below you will see osteopath Heath Williams performing an overhead dowel stick hold starting from the single leg RDL position (the overhead stick position – pushing away from the body creates torso stiffening) and the RDL stance hold encourages cocontraction of the planted foot). The aim is to move from this position to the box step up with an aim to train the lower body.
Single Leg RDL to Step Up with Load
In the video below you will see osteopath Heath Williams performing the same movement pattern with a slight overload (Bulgarian bag). Other load variations could include a barbell hold over the shoulders or load that moves i.e. aqua bag to create a perturbation).
Wall Supported Single Leg Hold (RDL position) to Single Leg Box Step with Wall Ball (at chest)
In the video below you will see another variation whereby the back leg is placed on the wall to add stability. The wall ball hold is used to add a slight external load and the aim is to step through quickly to train power/speed.
Single Leg Wall Supported RDL with overhead Wall Ball Hold to Single Leg Step Up
This is a progression on the previous exercises as it requires a greater amount of upper body and torso stiffening to hold the wall ball overhead.
Wall Ball Single Leg RDL hold to Step Through to the Wall
