Stability and Balance
If you want to run faster, jump higher or throw harder, training stability and balance must be a top priority in your workout program. That's because every action and movement in sports involves an element of stability and balance. For example, stabilizing on a single leg when running, jumping or kicking, or controlling your body while drawing contact when driving to the net. Make the most of your workouts by incorporating balance and stability exercises into your training routine. Learn how with the foremost information from STACK's network of experts and elite athletes.
