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!

Lateral band walks are one of the most common exercises used with our personal training clients to work on hip stability. Check out this video on the different variations that our trainers use and how to perform the exercise properly.

Can't do pull-ups? Try inverted rows! Our training staff uses different variations of this exercise to work on strength in the postural muscles of the back. We also use it as a lighter intensity option for those personal training clients who can't do full pull-ups, yet.

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.

Members at our gym are truly fortunate, not just because they workout in a super cool facility being trained by professional, highly educated and certified trainers, but also because they benefit from the collaboration of two other excellent professional resources; Specialized Orthopedics Physical Therapy and Power of Touch Sports Massage. If understanding how your body works, how to improve how your body works and how to address injuries and nagging or chronic pain is important to you, Olympia Fitness & Performance has got it all.
