For the month of October, Women’s Basketball Performance has been focusing on movements that should be in every girl basketball players strength training program.
The last 3 weeks, we have gone over the push, squat and single leg movements.
This week, we are focusing on the hip hinge. The hip hinge is great for:
* building strength
* teaching explosiveness (same movement as the load up for the vertical jump)
* getting quicker
* preventing injuries (the hips, hamstring and glutes and important muscles in decelerating)
Watch the video below as I go over the first hip hinging movement girls basketball players should learn: The Deadlift!
