Instructions: How To

A explosive plyometric exercise using a balance trainer to enhance balance and agility. This exercise primarily targets the muscles in your lower body. Landing on the balance trainer adds a significant amount of instability to the movement which can help recruit smaller stabilizing muscles as well.

  1. Standing to one side of the Balance Trainer, place one foot on the dome and lower into a half squat position.
 Hop forward, then backward with the outside leg, keeping the leg on the dome in a squat position.
 Step to the top of the dome and travel over the top to the other side.
 Repeat the front-back hop on the other side.
 Maintain upright spinal posture and a braced core throughout the exercise.
