Triple extension exercises target the hips, knees and ankles with explosive, forceful movements. They're a great way to condition muscles and ligaments so that you can run faster, jump higher and drive and push off harder.

Triple-Extension Tips

  • Because these exercises are high-intensity and high-energy, you should perform them at the beginning of your workout, after an appropriate warm-up. Simple movements like Lunges or Marches are a good idea, so you get the benefits of stretching without wearing yourself out.
  • Don't go overboard with weight. You can see benefits by using light weight. The key is to employ a full range of motion and execute each rep under control.
  • With jumps, limit yourself to no more than 80 reps to prevent injury.
  • Because they can be hard on the body, you should have at least 48 hours of rest between triple-extension workouts.
