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.
Even though these get the job done, there is another position that can help strengthen your body and balance, giving you an edge on your competition: Kneeling.
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.
