The Physio Ball Trunk Rotations is a functional training exercise for professional athletes to improve synergy of the neuromuscular system, core stability, body control and coordination.


During the Physio Ball Trunk Rotations the focus is on improving neuromuscular system efficiency because the neuromuscular system works in sync when the athlete moves on the court and hits the ball.

Emphasis is on the synchronized activation of various muscle groups and stabilizer development to improve performance and avoid injuries.

Monitor the speed of the Physio Ball Trunk Rotations and increase the speed accordingly as the athlete becomes more proficient with the exercise dynamics.
