Oblique Strength and Pelvic Position Part 2


One exercise that I think is a great option for those with oblique systems that tend to fail during top speed are oblique fly pulls. This exercise needs a lot of focus as it must be done slow with control. I consider this a hybrid between motor control and strength development as olympic lifts/sprinting/plyos tend to prepare the specific loading. I do think that the cook chops are good warm-up exercises but the loading is not nearly enough to properly create strength improvements due to the lack of arm strength with many young or female athletes. By training your core in a neutral position, it really helps the pelvis from collapsing but it’s not a fix but a part of a winning formula.
