Instructions: How To

This exercise is an explosive plyometric movement. By positioning one leg on the Balance Trainer, you add some instability to that leg in addition to giving yourself a softer surface to push off from. This is a great exercise for improving explosiveness and coordination.

  1. Stand on one side of the Balance Trainer with the inside foot resting on top of the dome.
  2. Press quickly off the foot on the dome and leap laterally over the top.
  3. Land with the opposite foot on top of the dome and the other toe touching the floor.
  4. Alternate side to side over the top of the dome.
  5. Maintain good posture and a braced core throughout the exercise.
