Hip Extension

An exercise with a wide use in both performance and fitness.

The unilateral hip extension on the kBox gives your glutes a day they will remember. More and more people have discovered this drill.

Usage

Stand on the kBox using an Ankle Cuff, with or without support by holding on to a rack or bar. Another variation is to lean forward where the kBox can be in a tilted position.

Benefits

Effective targeting of the glutes in a controlled way. It is very beneficial in an eccentric overload program for sprint development (ref). Use delayed eccentric action targeting the horizontal phase in sprinting or assisted concentrics for further eccentric overload.

Applications

Targeting glutes in a fitness program or horizontal force production and performance in sprinting.
