Balance Training

Balance training is an essential part of an athlete’s or individual’s physical development. According to CrossFit balance is defined as “the ability to control the placement of the body’s centre of gravity in relation to its support base”. Our definition is a little more broad, “the ability to control the body through a given movement is relation to its support base”.

Balance training is almost never ever, ever included in most training regimes, even for athletes! Balance is one of the most necessary skills in sports and it is the first thing to disappear as you age. Without sufficient balance development an individual is unable to control movements where an external object is involved and is unable to efficiently control static and dynamic placement of the body through space.

Unleashed Training focuses on the conditioning of balance and body awareness in non-exclusive format. What this means is that we don’t employ specific “balance sessions” in the way we do for other components such as strength.

Most movements in gyms and even sports training programmes are performed with excessive support through external means. This comes in the form of machines for strength training, orthotic support in athletic shoes, too many exercises lying down etc. This leads to poor balance development in the context of movement that is outside of the normal day to day actions of most people.

So how does balance become a part of a fitness regime?

Most strength movements performed in Unleashed Training workouts are done with a minimal support base. This does not necessarily mean that exercises are all performed in strange ways involving a fitball. What it does mean is that there are no machines used, minimal use of a bench etc.

In addition to this Unleashed Training employs a significant amount of gymnastics and parkour training as well as skill sessions involving wide and varied disciplines, such as sporting and athletic drills. From time to time we also like to include specific balance exercises.

One of the best ways to condition balance is through participation in sports of a dynamic or skill-related nature. Or, like is often prescribed in our workouts, athletic drills.
