By: Dr. Josh Funk, DPT, CSCS Founder of Lax Factory Physical Therapist Power Development is Plane-Specific!
Maryland native Multi-sport athlete growing up College Lacrosse at Ohio State Professional Lacrosse in the NLL Doctor of Physical Therapy at the University of Maryland Wearing many hats as a sport coach, performance coach and physical therapist
Noun Physical strength and force exerted by something or someone Verb To move or travel with great speed or force How do I train carryover?
MPH correlation with medicine ball toss and lateral bounds Ages 10-17 6 kg med ball 3 reps each side Correlation on dominant hand Non-dominant hand affected by technique errors Grip strength also correlated
Most research performed in baseball world Improving sagittal plane performance markers is not correlated with increased throwing velocity Ground reaction forces must be trained in the direction of the skill at hand Power Development is plane specific Increased levels of force production in back leg leads to higher throwing velocity Increased stride length leads to increased power Postural Restoration Institute
Liver on 1 side 3 lobes of lung on R vs 2 on L Diaphragm attachments more expanside on R R diaphragm built for success More common to see L rib flares In addition to hard wiring making most of us left brain dominant for certain motor tasks Courtesy of Postural Restoration Institute

Left versus Right Handed Athlete In-Season vs Off-Season Pre-Season vs. Off-Season Weight of the Medicine Ball (Strength-Speed) Injury History Sport and Position of the Athlete Elasticity of the Athlete Postural Restoration Institute
PRI themed Activation Dynamic Flexibility Frontal (bands) and Transverse plane bounds Medicine Ball Throws Frontal Plane and Single Leg Strength Training Anti-Movements Sled Dragging
Teach total body power development Allow you to safely load athlete’s in the sagittal, frontal and transverse planes Can reinforce ankle, hip and T-spine mobility Able to train the Strength-Speed portion of the training continuum Can reduce acquired asymmetries Stress reducer FUN!!!
“Load To Explode” Forearm parallel to the ground Pull elbow back to the wall behind you Back of front shoulder should face the target Off hand support Emphasis on Loading the back leg “Push off” after you weight shift to back leg “Cover Ground”- Get as close to the wall as possible after you throw “Get Long” Full extension of the hands and arms Don’t allow back leg to be “Stuck in the Mud”
Without Stretch-Shortening Cycle (SSC) With Stretch-Shortening Cycle Exaggerated Stretch Component Can Vary: Amplitude ▪ Short ▪ Long Response ▪ Short ▪ Long REMEMBER- Power Development is Plane Specific!!!
Linear Granny Toss to Chest Pass to Overhead Lateral/Rotational Scoop Toss to Mid Rotational Toss to Shot Put Stance Variations Tall Kneel to Half Kneel Symmetrical to Asymmetrical Stance Stepping to Footwork
Stationary Stepping Jump, Leap and Hop Locomotion Shuffle Carioca Skipping Skipioca Possibilities are endless
Can Use Partner for Iso’s If solo, perform press-outs Positions Half Kneel (In-line or regular) Tall Kneel Iso Split Squat Athletic Position Quadruped Chops and Lifts Y-Balance Reach Usually use as A2 or A3 during weight program
Landing on 1 leg Eccentric strength on the lead leg is equally as important Need for bowler squats, single leg deadlifts, lateral lunge variations, etc. Can train eccentric for lead leg with medicine balls (should always)
