Years ago I was lured into "corrective exercise" and "functional training" by a back injury. I can tell you what I learned from that experience - and what I do now (and it's not standing on a Bosu).
We hear a lot about unstable training these days, but is it the best way to work muscles that function as prime movers? A new study explores the role of stability in the overhead press.
Good training is about managing variables. Not some of the variables, not just the ones you think are cool, but all of them. And it is completely possible you might be unaware of all of the variables.
We've all seen people doing weight training on some crazy unstable surface. Does it actually do something for you? Science took a look and said no.
