There are many different ways to train the body in stability and balance. You have probably heard about it and even have probably seen a bit of a stability and core-type workout. The following 2 steps will explain some of the obvious and maybe not so obvious benefits of this type of training.
Benefit 1: (Muscle and Joint-Strength) This is absolutely true when utilizing a stability ball, bosu-ball, and balance boards. Whenever you stand on any single one of these particular devices your muscles automatically start to react and stabilize the body for control and train you to have a sense of self in space. This is a unique method to train the muscles in a different way compared to other traditional forms of weight-training. This also gives the joints added strength and stability reducing the risk of injury and is also hugely beneficial in the recovery and rehabilitation of an injury.
Benefit 2: (Core Strength) When standing on an unstable surface the core muscles automatically engage in order to correct you from losing your balance. You will see this immediately when standing on any of these surfaces with nothing more than your own body-weight. Plus these movements can obviously be enhanced to do more difficult tasks other than just standing to intensify the overall work of the muscles that are involved in these exercises. More time spent trying to master the balancing act will lead to a stronger body than you ever realized. You will also see that it will greatly supplement the other areas of your strength and conditioning program!
