have never had my athletes stand on the stability ball – I did use a photo of me standing on the ball for a promo shot a few years ago, but I have since stopped. Here is why.
A common mistake when training hockey players is focusing on the large prime movers and ignoring the smaller stabilizing muscles. Thinking in terms of the quads and glutes, but ignoring the deep hip rotators.
Occasionally there are some athletes who actually have weak back extensors, but more often than not this discomfort is related to muscle imbalances.
