Abstract

HIP EXTENSION MOMENTS INCREASE TO A MUCH GREATER DEGREE THAN KNEE EXTENSION MOMENTSWITH INCREASING LOADS DURING THE SQUAT, LUNGE, AND DEADLIFT EXERCISES AND WITH INCREASING RUNNING SPEEDS, JUMP HEIGHTS, AND LAT- ERAL AGILITY MANEUVERS. THERE- FORE, HIP EXTENSION TRAINING SHOULD BE PRIORITIZED IN ATH- LETIC CONDITIONING BY (A) USING HIP-DOMINANT EXERCISES IN THE ATHLETE’S PROGRAM, (B) EMPHA- SIZING HEAVIER LOADS DURING COMPOUND LOWER-BODY RESIS- TANCE EXERCISES AS THE ATHLETE MATURES, AND (C) INCORPORATING LOADS THAT MAXIMIZE THE HIP EXTENSION MOMENT DURING EXPLOSIVE LOWER-BODYTRAINING.
