Balance, Stabilization, and Eccentric Control Drills

We occasionally use the drills in this video to enhance our balance, stability, and our ability to use our legs eccentrically to control ground reaction forces. A great many injuries in athletics result from poor balance, and from under developed eccentric and isometric control of the body. This is especially true when moving in the frontal and transverse planes. People tend to emphasize sagittal plane movements like squats, push ups, cable pulls, and bench presses in the gym while forgetting that fighting requires that we are able to control our movements in all three planes. These drills are designed to help address these issues prior to engaging in activities that emphasize agility and quickness.
