Static Corrective Exercises

Static exercises must include proper positioning throughout the entire excursion of motion to have the intended physiological and stabilization effect.

Deviation from the correct positioning defeats the purpose of the exercise. These exercises create more rotational stability and elastic range which allow the athlete to use the individual phases of our throwing program more effectively. Many of these movements are difficult to perform without support. We start with the tall kneeling or half kneeling positions. Progressing to the split stance position without perfecting all aspects of the activity can lead to improper positioning of the pelvis or trunk and reinforce incorrect movement patterns and more relative inflexibility. Each exercise is designed to create stability and more usable flexibility that assist in maximizing your ability to create rotational speed throughout the entire throwing motion. As medical professionals we understand why inefficiencies can lead to injuries and why they rob you of speed. We cannot stress enough the importance of the specificity of exercise.

Our number one goal is to have each athlete reach their potential without injury. Do the exercise right before progressing towards the next level.
