Balance & Core Exercises

While we do have muscles that directly move our body or an object we also have many muscles that just help to either stabilize or decelerate us our an object. Often times these stabilizing muscles are not trained enough and can lead to injuries. Balance & stabilization training improves endurance of these muscles and can also make them smarter and teach them how and when to fire in a coordinated way. This is essential in any sports performance. A good feeling for balance is fundamental for Kata as well as for Kumite. Any advantage over your opponent counts. Therefore you should always incorporate some balance and stabilization training into your workout. This is also a great way to keep kids’ classes fun while teaching them essential skills for their athletic career.   Jackknife Stability Ball Balance Push Up Reversed Stability Balance Push Up Kneeling Stability Ball Rollout Medicine Ball Twister Side to Side Ball Throw Sit and Rotate Stability Ball Hamstring Curls Bosu Single Leg Squat Prone Ball Knee Drive Lunge and Rotate Single Leg Balance Squat (forward) Stability Ball Push Up wit 2 Balls Reversed Stability Balance Push Up with 2 Balls Kneeling Stability Ball Ball Catch & Throws One Leg Opposite Arm Ball Throw Russian Twists Prone Twist Lateral Stability Ball Wall Squat Hip Twister on Stability Ball in Push Up Position Split Stride Single Leg Rotations Stability Ball Press with Partner Stability Ball Kick Outs with Push Up on Bosu Lunge Pattern „No“ Lunges Stability Ball Kneeing both Knees Stability Ball Kneeing one Knee Stability Ball Squats One Leg / One Arm Squat Rowing Stability Ball Killer Roll Outs Stability Ball Push Up Lift Offs with clapping Hands
