Muscle Strengthening with Yann Guyader 11

Muscle Strengthening with Yann Guyader 11

You thought it was over? Don't be so sure! We've got loads of strength and technique drills in our virtual bag. For that 11th drill, Yann Guyader shows an original way of working on cross-overs...


Static work on cross-overs

A few instructions

  • Start from a low basic stance
  • The aim is to remain low and compact
  • Pass the foot in front and behind the supporting leg
  • You realize that your knees are almost static

Travail de renforcement musculaire en flexion


Series of 2x8 to 2x10 sec on one leg: 8 to 10 seconds with the foot in front, 8 to 10 sec with the foot in the back.
