Including functionally dense exercises is a way to improve outcomes and streamline workouts. Dense exercises are such that they satisfy multiple areas of the PROvention™ training system exercise section recommendations in a single exercise.
These exercises are extremly important for training today’s athletes because they tend to be very sport specific, they have a high neurological and metabolic load, and maximize training time.
One example of a dense exercise is the overhead squat. It is a very functional exercise and satisfies units for:
Glute Strength – Because of the depth of the movement, the glutes turn on
Neurological Patterning – Linking upper body extension with lower body flexion demands a lot from the body’s neurological system and creates a very demanding and effective pattern.
This is obviously just 1 example. Look for demanding, dense exercises and integrate them into your programming whenever possible. This is another very large topic. We can’t do it justice on a few web pages. Email us if you want to learn more about dense exercises.
