Hip Injury Prevention While Kicking Part 3

Hip Injury Prevention While Kicking Part 3

After last two articles, one of the questions that came up was, “I kick with one leg and I keep injuring the supporting leg and not the kicking leg in the same place where you are explaining” - What is the issue?
In short if there is no turn out in the supporting leg, the abduction is the same for both legs.
  • This simply means that both the kicking and the standing leg can anatomically move sideways away from the center line about 45 degrees.
  • Combined is 90 degrees.
  • Past this point there is jamming.
The leg with tighter adductors is actually more protected. (Adductors or inner thighs prevent abduction)
  • Imagine a right leg kicker. This kicker throws sides kicks, without turning out his left, supporting leg.
If his right adductors are tight, he is more likely to injure his left standing hip. Since tight adductors offer protection, against jamming.
I usually use mermaid stretch to confirm it. The tighter side will be higher from the ground.

Do You Want FAST Mastery of Your KICKS?

3-4 years of Training, You can Master in 5-6 Months!

Or... Do you Prefer the Standard Method..?

Kick and kick and kick some more....

And hope that it will work somehow, eventually...

If you are open to a new method... Read On!

Here is the Eye Opening Truth:

If you want SPEED, You MUST train a sequence that develops SPEED!

If you want KICKING HEIGHT, You MUST train a progression that develops KICKING HEIGHT, etc, etc.

The worst thing you can do is.... “just keep kicking"

I know people who have been “just kicking” for 2 years,

and I also know those with 30 years of "just kicking" experience under their belt.

NEITHER have developed any top-level qualities in their kicks.

(By quality I mean; speed, power, height, focus, control, etc)

However, after I showed them how to train for a specific quality of a kick, it took them just weeks.

YOU READ THAT RIGHT, just weeks to improve their kicks like they could not do in years.

Extremely Fast Progress- One Quality At a Time

My Program STANDS BEHIND What it Does,

And I Don't Want to Hear People Who DID NOT Understand How it Works,

Complain That They Did Not Achieve Their Results Fast Enough.

So IF You Understand That Each Quality Must be Developed One At a Time,

Only Then Can it Be Mastered Quickly Then Please Read On....

Now briefly, I will tell you who I am and what I do.

(If you already are familiar with ElasticSteel and me, Paul Zaichik, skip this part)

I am a life long martial artist. (36 years in martial arts, in 2022).

My education is in Kinesiology. I have been studying, researching and teaching kinesiology for 23 years.
As you can imagine, my main areas of study were and still are:
  • Biomechanics
  • Motor Learning
  • Exercise Physiology
  • Human Movement
I have always applied much of my research to Martial Arts.

That is why, when I look at the mastery of kicking techniques, a completely different point of view is seen in my mind, compared to most people.

So, when you get this Kick combo, you will get the following:

Very Short and to the point and very easy to understand and follow routines for basic kicks. The quality improvement is focused on the following kicks:
  • Front Kick,
  • Roundhouse
  • Side Kick
  • Hook Kick
  • Axe Kick
Each routine designed for quick mastery of a kick and a chosen quality. Example:
  • speed or a roundhouse kick
  • power of a front kick
  • height of a side kick, etc.
Especially selected exercises that have been carefully chosen from many already very effective and rare exercises, to achieve the fastest results. (Again, each one for a specific quality or a specific kick)

Routines to master advanced kicks as well. (Flying side kick, Scorpion Kick, Flying Side Kick, Flying Two Direction Scissors kick).

But if you don’t know anything about me, you probably find all this too good to be true. If I have trained the same way for years, without any results, I would definitely be skeptical of some “new method” I just discovered.

Can this really help me?
I hope you are skeptical. The more skeptical you are the more you will enjoy the results. And more likely you will tell your friends about them. That’s how word of the mouth works. From people who are pleasantly surprised by the results…

Adductors Strength & Flexibility
This program contains: 
Adductors are four muscles whose primary role is hip adduction. Adduction is pulling the limb toward the mid-line of the body.

Additionally some texts list Pectineus as an adductor. There are a number of other muscles that also adduct the leg. Most of those muscles are external rotators of the hip. Since most applications of abduction have a superimposed lateral rotation, additional adductors do not restrict abduction or horizontal abduction. The exception are medial hamstrings, which are internal rotators of the hip.
Complete Shoulder Flexion
This program contains: 
Being able to stretch the shoulder abductors and extensors, as well as scapula inferior rotators allows the arm to come up to at least vertical line. In many cases more than 180 degree is needed, in throwing sports for example, such as javelin, football and baseball. Same applied to serves in volleyball and rocket sports.
Hamstrings Advanced Level
This programs contains:
The Advanced Hamstrings routine is for those of you who are familiar with the Zaichik Stretching techniques and can comfortably implement the routine. It takes things up a notch by introducing muscle contraction in addition to muscle action for an even more intense workout.
