The Joy of Box Jumps
Don’t Fight the Physics:
“Elements of Muted Hip Function (MHF)
The elements of MHF include but are not limited to structurally disadvantaged spinal posture, low/no glute recruitment, low/no hamstring recruitment, pelvis abandons the spine and chases the legs, center of gravity shifts dramatically backward, center of balance shifts toward toes, knee experiences unsound sheer force, leg extension only productive effort, hip extension not possible with low hip angle, pelvis rotates wrong way, and most importantly stability, balance, and power diminish with lowered center of mass.
The degree of MHP varies from mild to severe. In severe cases everything the athlete attempts is rocked by instability and low power. In mild cases power loss and instability occur only while under great physical stress. In combat and elite performance even mild MHF can lose the day.
For physical performance what could be worse than low power and instability?
Deliberate and focused training and practice of demanding hip extension movements is the only way to eliminate the effects of MHF. Again, it will typically take three years or more to eliminate all tendencies toward MHF.
No exercise offers as much opportunity to correct MHF tendencies than perfect form, high rep push-press. MHF is evident within the first .01 of a second of a bad push press.” Coach Greg Glassman
Muted Hip Function – Notice the hips and knees way forward on this attempted push jerk. Also notice the arms are not locked out which technically disqualifies this as a jerk. Keeping the eyes open during your lifts is generally a good idea.
Muted Hip Function – Notice the hips and knees way forward on landing of this push jerk. Again the arm’s failure to lockout disqualifies this from being a technically correct jerk and would earn an F at competition. You can’t see but her eyes are closed too.
Good Hip Function – Notice the hips and knees back and the arms locked out. This is a technically sound jerk. Eyes open.
