Major League Strength

The 4th Annual Major League Strength Performance Conference                            


The 4th Annual ML Strength Performance Conference will be taking place on Saturday, November 12th at the ML Strength Facility in White Plains, New York (20 miles outside of New York City).

mls1This year, ML Strength have joined forces with SMARTER Team Training to create a dynamic conference that is more hands-on and practical than your typical lecture only format. All of this year’s speakers will create hands-on, full engagement presentations that will force participants to get out of their seats and truly learn by doing. This will be a great opportunity for attendees to learn from those that work with professional athletes, collegiate athlete, youth athletes, and America’s top business executives.


This conference will highlight a multidisciplinary approach- integrating sports performance training, physical therapy, nutrition, acupuncture, chiropractic, and motivation providing for a high energy, high learning environment.

This is going to be an exciting event – a chance to take your game to the next level!

Closed And Open Chain

Open kinetic chain exercises of the lower limb are movements, where the distal segment is unloaded and free to move. The opposite is true of closed kinetic chain exercises, whereby  there is enough resistance to prohibit free motion.

Closed kinetic chain exercises are movements such as squats, Pendulum Squat Pro, leg presses and lunges, while open chain exercises are actions like leg curls, leg extensions and the Pendulum Reverse Glute Ham.

The kinetic chain can be understood as interrelated joints and body parts working with one another during motion. This creates a chain of events that affects the movement of neighboring joints and segments.

The advantage of open chain movements is that they tend to be better at isolating muscle and often are selected for specific rehabilitation and used to accentuate performance. While closed chain movements in general would be classified as more functional and closely approximating movements that are used in sport and daily life.

2-for-2 Method

Some trainers, coaches and athletes use what is called the 2-for-2 Method for increasing training load. The rule is if the trainee can perform two or more repetitions over one’s ‘repetition goal’ in the last set of an exercise, for two consecutive workouts, the weight is added for that particular exercise the next training session.
