1) A trainer in Florida had a professional basketball player standing on an elliptical backwards (facing AWAY from the moving arms) and simultaneously dribbling a basketball.
2) A lady doing jumping split squats on two Bosu balls, one for the front leg and one for the back leg, and she would switch legs while in the air from one rep to the next.
She was training… something. She sure was training my peripheral vision watching for flying dumbbells.
3) There was a girl in a push up position, each foot on a physio ball. The move was to "open the legs" and then close them while keeping the feet on the balls!
The “coach” was standing right behind her, (almost between her legs) watching the "open-close" movement...
4) Squatting on a Bosu in the Smith Machine in order to train "stability"… but they needed support...
5) A woman doing a “split squat” with her front right foot on an elevated upside down Bosu ball and the toe of her left back leg on a large physio ball. She has the handle of a low cable in her left hand and might be doing a single arm row…but we’re not sure.
6) Jumping chin-ups—the feet touch down after each rep and then the “athlete” jumps up to chin the bar to ensure that there is no concentric or eccentric phase…
7) Jogging sideways on the treadmill…”to address the frontal plane”
8) Barbell back squats on the physio ball or the Bosu
9) Doing full body weight squats while holding onto a 45-pound weight plate that is on top of the head with a volleyball balanced in the center-hole of the plate…to make sure the “athlete” doesn’t have too much forward flexion.
10) Stepping sideways crossing one leg over the other on the step machine…try it, just don’t go to fast!
