The stability squat can be performed as a traditional back or front squat, either isometrically, or at an even lifting cadence, while two 16 lb/7.26 kg hammers hang from the bar (Figure 7A–C).
Creator: Donald Babbitt
Duration: 0:07
Variations of this squat can be performed by putting the hammers in motion to oscillate in similar directions (Figure 8B).

Calf raise exercises can also be performed with a similar rhythm and tempo as the stability squat while the athlete maintains the swinging motion of 2 hammers moving in either opposing or similar directions (Figure 9).
Creator: Donald Babbitt
Duration: 0:09
The lifter will gently move the bar with the arms and upper body to start the motion, so that the hammers will maintain their swinging motion either in unison (Figure 10A).

An easier version of this exercise can be used by either adjusting the hold on the bar so that it is much closer to the lifter’s center of mass, just above the hips (Figure 12B).

Athletes were encouraged to bring protective footwear/shoes and goggles during training as pool bottoms usually have a rough texture. Weeks 1 and 2 of the program were fairly light and aimed to introduce athletes to the pool, the exercises (Table 2, Figures 1–5) and gauge how their bodies would feel during and after training.

The individual grasps the band/cable and brings the arm into a position of 90° of abduction while in neutral rotation. Once in the start position, the individual externally rotates the arm concentrically to achieve the 90/90 position. Once in the 90/90 position, the individual is requested to step backward 2–4 steps in an effort to increase tension in the band/cable. The band/cable is then lowered back to the start position to finish.
Creator: Eric Chaconas
Duration: 00:09
The concentric phase of external rotation is achieved by using the contralateral arm to rotate the arm out to the side to achieve end-range external rotation. At this stage, the individual should laterally step to the side to further increase resistance from the band or pulley. Once increased resistance is perceived, the individual slowly allows the arm to return to the start position to complete the eccentric action of this exercise.

Eccentric training should be a component of a reconditioning program for hamstring injuries upon return to sport. Exercises included in the video are eccentric box drops, eccentric loaded lunge drops, eccentric forward pulls, split-stance Zerchers, and single-leg deadlifts. These exercises create biarticular muscle function in a unilateral asymmetric fashion, similar to that needed for sprinting and most sport activities.

Upon return to sport following injury, athletes should perform trunk stabilization and neuromuscular control exercises that incorporate control of trunk rotation, weight bearing and multiple angles of hip flexion. Exercises in the video include: low to high wood chops, high to low wood chops, rotating core planks, physioball bridging with alternating leg holds and alternating hip position, and single leg stand rotating reaches.
