Walk into a gym and you’ll notice a lot of the same thing: athletes standing, sitting, or lying on their backs while they are getting their bodies ready for 2018 AAU competition.

Not only is this position a change up from your regular bench press, curls, or squats, but it most importantly can improve your balance, strength and core stability.
