This week’s video is an advanced exercise that will challenge your core and balance.
You’re either going to love or hate this exercise, but there’s no doubt that it will help you develop a strong core.
This is one of my favorite exercises!
If you’re ready for an advanced exercise to improve your core strength and challeng your balance, try the Stability Ball Jacknife.
The stability ball is a pretty versatile piece of equipment. If you’ve been watching my videos, you’ll see that I use it for quite a few exercises.
The body moves in three planes of motion. First is the sagittal plane, which involves forward and backward movement. For example, walking on a treadmill is a sagittal plane movement. Second is the frontal plane which is side-to-side motion. Third involves the transverse plane, or rotational movement. Most injuries that occur in life do so in the frontal and transverse planes, yet most exercise machines are designed for sagittal movement. Unless you incorporate those movements into your exercise, you’re at greater risk for injury.
