Olympic Lifting- Mastering the Front Rack Position
Front Rack is a technique, which allows placing the bar in favorable position. When thinking of the front rack the following lifting techniques come to mind. Not having the proper Front Rack form prevents many lifters from reaching their true potential. Years ago coaches drilled the techniques with naked bar or a stick, for many sessions. There was a belief that eventually proper technique will be established. Unlike standard relaxed stretching techniques commonly used in lifting programs, our program employs Zaichik stretching techniques. Zaichik stretching approach is different. Each muscle is targeted individually. At the same time using action vs action approach, stretch reflex is avoided. Avoiding the stretch reflex allows to eliminate the pain of stretching
Side Stretching/Bending - Intermediate
Lateral Bending is often neglected compared to other targets of flexibility training, such as hamstrings or adductors. In our program a new and unique approach called Zaichik Stretching is taken. Each muscle is isolated and various actions are used against each other to create length. This allows to avoid the pain of the stretch reflex and speed up the flexibility gains
Foot and ankle
Flexibility of the lower leg is often overlooked. Most athletes don't go much past the standard calve stretches.In reality any athlete can become more mobile and agile with increased flexibility of the lower leg muscles and joints. While this applies mostly to skills, which involve ground reaction forces, others can benefit as well.Like all the other Zaichik Stretching programs, the foot and ankle flexibility program takes each movement apart into the participating muscles. There are various muscles that point the toes and pulls them in. Each one is worked on individually. Using the principles of action vs action stretches for the same muscle groups, the pain of stretch reflex is avoided. This allows for faster flexibility gains. Together with the stretching exercises, the strengthening exercises protect the joints and allow long term flexibility retention.
Wrist Stretches & Forearm Flexibility
Unlike the standard time consuming passive stretch method, this routine employs Zaichik Stretching techniques. Each of the muscle that prevent the successful Attitude Derriere and Arabesque is separated out and quickly lengthened, using one of its own actions against the other. You'll be surprised how fast and easy the results will come using this method. Click here for more information
Neck Stretching & Cervical Flexibility
Unlike the standard passive neck stretches, Zaichik Stretches focus on each of the muscles that restrict the movement individually. Each muscle is isolated and various actions are used against each other to create length. This allows avoiding the pain of the stretch reflex and speed up the flexibility gains
Back Flexibility is an important factor in many sports. Although commonly called "Back Flexibility" Hyper extension of the spine is the flexibility of the anterior structures. In very deep ranges structures supporting the spine get stretches. For most people however being able to stretch back, requires the flexibility of the rectus abdominis, psoas minor and oblique’s.
