Rotational Power Training

As our hockey guys have left for their respective teams, I’ve spent more time at Endeavor Fitness developing our Baseball and Golf training programs.  As I’ve worked on these things, I’ve noticed that baseball and golf training has one major similarity to ice hockey training: the need for a significant amount of rotational core power work.

Rotational core power should be developed with a training progression similar to linear core power:

1) Stability/anti-movement exercises

2) Dynamic stability/anti-movement exercises

3) Simultaneous hip and shoulder movement exercises

4) Hip initiated rotation with thoracic spine rotation follow through

Things aren’t always as cut and dry as these classifications, but it provides a good framework to work from.

Over the next week I’ll post an example of each one of these.
