My New Favorite Exercise

Single-leg high force reduction followed by an explosive lateral or diagonal bound, followed by another single-leg high force reduction.  I love it.  You can progress this exercise by adding a high knee before the forward lunge (so you’ll be decelerating from a higher height, adding to the amount of force you’ll need to reduce) or by adding a weight vest.
I’ve always wanted to name an exercise after myself, so I changed these from: Lunge to Lateral Bound to: Neeld Bounds.  Not nearly as descriptive and I’m sure someone else has thought of it, but I’m running with the fantasy that I made it up.
