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. 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 Trunk Rotations and increase the speed accordingly as you become more proficient with the exercise dynamics.
Physio Ball Trunk Rotations Progression
If you use additional weights…make sure you use appropriate weight so you can control the action throughout the entire range of motion.
Otherwise you defeat the purpose of the exercise.
Very often, people use too much resistance and they become sloppy. Especially when it comes to maintaining core stability repetitively.
Also, don’t just progress with adding more weight. First, maximize the speed while maintaining perfect form.
