These exercises will dominantly focus on core & hip stability and strength.
Stability is an undervalued attribute because not many understand the importance of it. How can working on your stability make you more athletic, more explosive and more agile?
Stability makes a massive difference in your ability to move. The better stability you have, the better base you have for producing power. Stability also allows you to move faster from one direction to another (agility).
