Developing Lateral Explosiveness: Phase 1

The first phase of developing lateral explosive power is to prepare the body to absorb load. Eccentric load patterns are a great tool to begin to strengthening a pattern. Here we show the development of a lateral curtsy lunge with cable assist. we can safely develop the eccentric load pattern but not break form on the concentric return. Power development revolves around generating force as well as absorbing it. Eccentric training can help the body prepare for both.
