Training The Whole Body, Not Just Isolated Regions
In the videos below you will see VU osteopathy student Ema demonstrating a number of exercises that looks to integrate the whole body. These include:
- Anti rotation (anterior load hold) with lunge
- Anterior lunge with anterior band press
- High plank mountain climber with varied hip drivers (sagittal, frontal and transverse plane focus)
- Single leg balance hold to RDL with load (same side and opposite side weight hold)
- Modified birddog (knees off ground) with hip extension
- Split squat with varied weight holds (low, chest and above head hold)
These are just a few different examples of how one can integrate full body movements into their training program to challenge the body further.
