Stability Ball Strength Training Workouts


[Intro Music]>>DREW WALSH: The Physio ball is a versatile
piece of equipment that can be a great addition to your training. Here are a few great ways to implement this
piece of equipment to any training program. We’re going to look at how we can use the
Physio ball for our hamstring curl to build Posterior chain strength of the hamstring
and glutes. We’re going to have our athlete lie straight
on their back. Take the heels and place them on top of the
Physio ball. Point your toes toward your shins. We’re going to start with extended legs. We’re then going to cue the athlete to take
a big exhale and drive those hips to the ceiling. Keeping nice balance of the hips, we’re
then going to have our athlete take the heels and bring them towards the hips, while driving
those hips to the ceiling. Then we’re going to have our athlete extend
their legs and repeat. Here’s another way we can use the Physio
ball. We’re going to have our athlete perform
the plank rollout. The athlete is going to start by placing their
forearms on top of the physio ball. Then, we’re going to cue the athlete to
extend their legs, keeping the feet slightly outside the shoulders and actively drive the
elbows into the physio ball and push away. We’re then going to have our athlete take
a big exhale and contract the glutes and quads. Then we’re going to cue to have the athlete
reach slightly forward without the torso following the forearm. Due to its round shape and bouncy structures,
the Physio ball serves as a great way to enhance your balance and core stability, which are
two important factors in athleticism. [Outro Music]
