The Posterior Chain, the MVP of Full Body Strength. Crazy Leg Day Delivers Results
Form, Function, and Flexibility key components when designing a program. Reactive training is the one of the best ways one can increase neuromuscular efficiency. Crazy Leg Day is designed to activate and enhance proprioceptors. These receptors are responsible for muscle spindle activation. In turn this increases full body motor recruitment.
5DollarGym was created to make exercise available to everyone. Evolved from the spirit of Shaolin QiGong, monks would create heavy objects to lift crafted from stone. I have adapted these ancient methodologies to make things more kosher and home friendly for everyone to enjoy.
“Do not let circumstances control you. You change your circumstances.”

Crazy Leg Day is Quick, Efficient, and Effective
Plyometric training is efficient as it trains all five elements of fitness and then some in one 25 – 45 minute session. This leg day was designed to increase endurance, strength, and power throughout the range of motion
One of the most critical pieces of the puzzle for full body strength, the posterior chain is essentially the hind side of the body. Moreover, the posterior chain is responsible for a majority of the bodies movements. From lifting objects off the floor, to keeping your back straight while squatting.
Having a strong posterior chain improves all lifts, and athletic performance. It also helps to prevent injury on those heavier lifts. Imagine that your legs are the base a pyramid, all movement starts here and goes through the hips.
All things considered, the main purpose of this routine is to increase power, while improving range of motion of the posterior chain.

Additionally, this workout was created to develop full body strength and functionality through the entire range of motion. It is critical to consider all of the muscle groups working together when designing a program. All in all, this methodology makes for the best results for athletic performance.
3 – 5 supersets is optimal, aim for 15 – 30 reps per set. If you are fortunate enough to be working with weights at the time, work within 50 – 75% RM (rep max)
Working over 75% with anything less than 10 reps will bulk you up, reducing speed and flexibility. Furthermore, A good martial artist has a balance of all athletic traits. Essentially this is the best for martial arts practitioners as it does not sacrifice from any other element of fitness to further develop them.
***Key Notes – Try and Pause for a second at the Eccentric point(the point of full flexion, or most tension) of motion during each exercise. In short this will help to deliver the best results.
