I am looking for some Exercises, maybe
you can help me. I am looking for some full body compound exercises.
Something like the advanced burpee, jumpin jack or mountain climbers
or kettlebell exercises. But i want some more :)
I am riding motocross and so i think, these kind of exercises
will be good for my condition. One time I saw an other nice exercise:
You need a high cable pulley in front of you which is slightly
on left side that you grasp with your right hand and leaning
your upper body forward. Just standing on the left leg performing
a slight squat. the right leg, which is above the ground, is
While pulling the cable to you, raise your body and move
the right leg towards you until your knee comes to chest height,
then release and go back to starting position.
I hope you can follow my instruction. Do you you know some
more exercises of this kind? I rather don't know, how you name
these exercises. calisthenics? I want to insert a kind of circuit
training with these exercises to the normal weight and cardio
training. Would be nice to find some more on your page ;)
you for your suggestions. We will likely add more calisthenics
and other aerobic shuttle drills some time next year. We're still
looking to partner with another kettlebell expert for further
collaboration in building and/or rebuilding our kettlebell library.
Im afraid we dont include many movements, if any,
like the one you described combining multiple weight training
exercises into one exercise, partly because there are so many
possible combinations. What you have described on the high pulley
apparatuses appears to combine at least two if not three exercises:
Some trainers believe performing exercises on one leg can
improve balance, although other experts assert there is little
transfer from balancing exercises to improve balance in a particular
sport (see Specificity
of Balance, Proprioception, and Core Stability, first reference).
Performing upper body weight training exercise on one leg restricts
the base of support which has been shown to decrease muscular
force and activation during upper body movements (third reference).
Performing two or more weight training exercises simultaneously
may also not be as effective as performing them separately because
stronger movements are not sufficiently overloaded since the
resistance is restricted by the weakest movement. This also happened
to some degree when performing the movement for muscular endurance,
but in all cases, there is typically little carry over to sports
performance with these sorts of movements.
If you believe you receive some other benefit from it, certainly
include it. Perhaps I am misunderstanding the exercise you have
described or maybe I am missing the point. However, I believe
that you will be much better served by beginning with basic general
conditioning program, then gradually progressing to a basic sports
Consider adding certain auxiliary movements if they mimic
specific movements, metabolic pathways, and/or motor skills found
in your sport. See Specific
Often times, the best sports specific conditioning you can
perform is the specific sport itself under variable conditions
or intensity and duration.
In my professional opinion, the sort of combination weight
training exercise you have identified are fine for selling magazines
or fooling clients into thinking that they are doing some sort
of cutting edge training, but as far as I am aware of, these
sorts of strength exercises are rarely included in the most reputable
high level strength and conditioning coaches repertoire.
Granted I have only trained one competitive motor cross competitor
in my career, maybe there is something more to it than I am understanding.
Certainly consider asking other visitors on our forum
to provide you with additional suggestions and insights.
