Stable to the Core
Creating stability by working on stabilization training in combination with core work will enhance one’s proprioception or the brain’s ability to know where the body’s limbs are in space. Because balance and stability decline with age, it is crucial to train them both for life. Balance and stability exercises train the brain’s proprioception. With good stability, you don’t have to force the muscles to cheat their way into maneuvering bigger moves by compensating. This will decrease your risk of tweaking joints and incurring injuries from everyday life or from being active.
