Core Training Variations for Dynamic Stability

Following up on a previous post, over the next few days, I’ll share other core variations we use to reinforce stability across a variety of different positions.

The video below is of a Split Squat Med Ball Figure 8.

As with the last video, the goal is to maintain depth and a forward lean/shin angle, and to control the momentum of the ball to maintain the pelvis/torso within the base of support.
The “Figure 8” (really an “infinity” symbol) pattern adds a diagonal component, in comparison to the “tight rotation” variation that is straight side to side.
This serves as an end-stage progression from dynamic cable chop and lift patterns.
With longer durations, a key point of emphasis is on “breathing through the brace.”
Give this a shot, and post any questions/comments below!

To your success,
