    Science: Why unbalanced training sucks

    I've never got it. Why does unbalanced training suck? Swiss balls and balance boards, why? I've stayed clear because people told me to. But it is always harder on unbalanced equipment, and they always give this science like "core contraction increases 5000 percent on a big inflatable ball, and 6000 if it's pink!". What's the deal?

    Crunches on a ball = gold.

    heavy bench press on a ball = stupid.
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    Actually, dont the West Side Barbell Club powerlifters do and advocate those(with their program)? Could swear Lou Simmons used these with Dumb Bells though.

    The idea behind "Balanced" training is to engage as many muscles as possible when doing an exercise.

    The more muscles used, the better overall strength you'll develop, and the more "stability muscles" you'll strengthen.

    These "stability muscles" are instrumental to keeping your core strong, and preventing stupid injuries where your body is torqued in different positions that you've trained.

    The use of instability in training has been grossly overstated by some people. It's one of those trends that you see in personal training, because a lot of PTs feel compelled to introduce a lot of novelty and change into programs.

    That being said, it's far too easy to oversimplify and say that instability is bullshit, and good for nothing; that sentiment is not accurate.

    DB presses on a stability ball are not bad at all -- but before you can understand why, you have to understand the difference between, say, dynamic lifting, recovery lifting and maximal lifting. Am I being vague? Let me put it this way: Not every fucking time.
