Stability ball deadbugs focus on anti-extension of the core. This may be the best exercise out there for personal training clients who are looking to improve their abdominal strength but suffer from back problems. This is a great exercise for our golf fitness clients who want to build their core strength for the golf season.
Rotational power and disassociation of the hips and shoulders are required in almost all sports, especially golf, hockey, and throwing sports like baseball. Slideboard abs build rotational core strength and help work on disassociation of the hips and shoulders in a controlled manner. While many trainers will have clients that can't do this exercise, if they can it's well worth putting them through it!
The rotational box jump work on vertical and rotational power output at the same time. An incredible exercise for golfers who want to improve their swing speed! For higher level personal training clients who master this we can start to make the exercise more difficult by increasing the amount of rotation to 180 or 270 degrees. If we're working with someone who isn't comfortable doing box jumps we can also perform this exercise as a broad jump so that the client can stay at ground level.
