Creating Core Stability with Medicine Ball Training
An athlete’s frontal plane stability is challenging the core when performing a lateral deceleration move. Regardless of how stable the core is, performance increases or decreases based on the width of the foot plant. An athlete with poor core stability in the frontal plane can still look good if the foot plant angle is optimal. An athlete with good core stability in the frontal plane can look poor if the foot plant angle is too near the hips. To take this to the next level, the athlete that “stays in the tunnel” by lowering his or her center of mass, will cover up the frontal plan core stability issue even more.
To develop core stability for lateral speed, I use my Medicine Ball Level System to help an athlete build a strong core.
