Balance training improves neuromuscular communication and coordination; increases musculoskeletal strength and stability, especially around the joints; enhances strength and stability of connective tissue (ligaments and tendons); improves core strength and stability; and helps to reduce injury by “teaching” the body to adapt to instability.
And, although balance training is a valuable training strategy for athletes, everyone can benefit from balance training.
There are several tools — such as balance pads (pictured), discs, and BOSU balls — that allow for a variety of exercises performed with different degrees of instability.
Add balance training to your current training routine, allow for progression of difficulty over time, and improve your performance and overall physical functioning.
