Great sequence!
I will use the plank, hip bridge and hip hinge sequences for many clients - none of them play contact sports - but what a great group of exercises.
Also like the dead lifts, lunge lifts and lunge motions/bounds for some of my clients as well.

Very well demonstrated, explained and sequenced - thanks for the great ideas.
Many teams need strength & conditioning coaches like Pete!
