UFC 피트니스: 유라이어 페이버 편

How does the "California Kid" stay so fast? Bantamweight Urijah Faber shows us the moves that make the difference.
When certified physical therapist Russ Dunning of Results Physical Therapy and Training Center in Sacramento writes strength and conditioning programs for athletes like TUF 17 Finale headliner Urijah Faber, he relies on plyometric exercises that improve speed and explosiveness without adding size.

Below are four moves using a medicine ball that you can implement today. Start with two sets of 10 to fire up any strength and weightlifting program.

Medicine Ball Chest Pass
 Hold the medicine ball with both hands at chest level. Get  into a squat position and then explode forward, throwing  the ball to your partner’s chest. Use your whole body to  generate power, getting full extension at your ankles,  knees, and hips. The medicine ball should be propelled by  the force of the jump rather than the strength of your arms.

 TIP: Perform medicine ball throws in two fashions: Use a  partner to pass the ball very quickly back and forth, and  then throw the ball in an open space for maximum power  and distance.

Medicine Ball High-to-Low
Get a 10- to 14-pound medicine ball and face a partner who is standing about eight feet away from you. Bring the ball behind your head, like a soccer throw-in, and slam it toward your partner’s knees. The partner will catch the ball between his knees and then, in a deadlift-type motion, throw it back at face-level to his partner. After ten throws, the partners switch positions.

Medicine Ball Overhead Throw
Place a medicine ball on the floor and stand over it, with your back to your partner. Drop into a deadlift position to pick up the ball. Push through your heels and explode upwards, bringing the ball over your head as you extend at the ankles, knees, and hips. Forcefully release the ball at the apex of the movement, sending it as high and as far as possible.

TIP: DynaMax-style medicine balls, ones that have a soft filling and a smooth surface, are ideal for partner-catch drills.

Medicine Ball Rotation
Stand perpendicular to your partner, who is about eight feet away, so your left shoulder is facing his chest. Hold the ball with two hands near your right hip. Forcefully turn the right hip over and pivot on the right foot, rotating your body and using the power of your hips to throw the ball to your partner’s chest. The motion is just like throwing a right cross
