Wobbly Board


Question: Does using a wobbly board or stability ball during training exercises increase the effectiveness of my training routine?
Answer: No. These pieces of equipment are being promoted by various groups as ways to increase the strength of your “stability muscles.” While at first glance they may seem helpful to use during your training, they are actually very dangerous. There are instances where trainees have been using Bosu balls while bench pressing and have rolled off the ball and injured themselves badly.

Your so-called stabilizer muscles are actually your abdominal, lower back and other nearby muscles. They are best trained not with an unpredictable ball but more traditional exercises such as sit-ups, ab crunches, side bends and machine or free weight rotational exercises. Don’t do endless sets of high repetitions but instead do a more moderate routine such as one set of 15 repetitions of each of the above exercises.
