Pegboard Ability Exercise Improvement Program
Range of Motion’s Exercise Improvement Programs have been developed to assist in improving the ability to complete the movements that people most commonly struggle with. They are designed to be cycled through over time, with each session running for only five minutes. This allows them to be completed in addition to (not instead of) your regular programming.
- Session 1: With uneven pegs, jump the chest to the top peg and complete a slow five second lower to hang. Accumulate 20 repetitions, alternating hands each rep. Five minute cap.
- Session 2: Three sets of four reps of the following (each set unbroken): 5 second uneven peg hang, strict uneven chest to top peg pull-up, 5 second hold at top, 5 second lower. Change hands after every rep.
- Session 3: Standing on the ground, complete as many unweighted peg moves (up and down) as possible in 30 seconds. Rest for 30 seconds. Five rounds.
- Session 4: With uneven pegs, jump the chest to the top peg and lower quarter of the way down, hold three seconds. Lower half way down, hold three seconds. Lower three quarters of the way down, hold three seconds. Lower to hang. Complete four times in five minutes. Alternate hands each set.
- Session 5: Accumulate 15 difficult strict uneven chest to top peg pull-ups. Add weight or use partner assistance if required. Five minute cap.
- Session 6: On uneven pegs, accumulate 60s secs chest to top peg hold on each side. 5 min cap.
