RX ATHLETES- Pull:

For all movements -
1 ) rest as needed to maintain maximum quality of movement.
2) Place your hands the same distance apart for increased transfer. This should be the length from your finger tips to elbow. If on the bar, on the floor, or on the rings (measure up on straps for rings).

3 position ring row: holding the rings with your body at 45 degrees to the floor, Find that tight, tidy globally curved hollow body. Being super strict to maintain this position, put some down pressure on the rings, pause, retract the shoulder blades, pause, row toward your hips. Only advance position if hollow maintained. https://youtu.be/N49xkPKJu9U

3 x 10/10 single leg calf eccentrics on a plate. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZrm1k4Y4VY
control it down and drive the knee forward to work ankle range.

If you don't know, assess: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlIzVI4KN7o
If you feel tension more in the front, the banded mobilisation is more likely to work, if tension is in the calf, the calf eccentrics will be more beneficial.
