Are you noticing a theme here? These are all the same exercises I’ve shown you before, but with a more advanced external sensory stimulus added. The greater the challenge to stability, the more carryover to athletics. I love these exercises for a couple reasons, but mostly because they are so simple to progress.
NOTE: It is not necessary to have Tony Gentilcore in a tight T-shirt to perform these exercises. Any partner will do.
