Golfers and baseball players don’t want the competition to know about the wonders of explosive rotary power developed from this fitness tool! Think about it. All out explosive bursts of core power generated from the torso call for a most intense effort. That is what it takes to hit a long drive or home run. Do yourself a favor and add the tornado ball to your fit toy box. Use it among friends and expect to wait your turn until everyone has had a go at it. You may be wise to have a couple different weights to work with as you build functional strength and core power.
Who can train with the Medicine Rope Ball?
Once a client has mastered swiss ball training on the Duraball Pro and learned to stabilize the abdominal and pelvic core they are qualified to perform the power drills. A good preliminary movement will be to lay back on the Duraball while holding a weighted medicine ball with vertically outstretched arms moving in a windshield wiper pattern. This creates great deceleration and core control needed for the standing version which will be explosive. Explosive means it must be done with all-out effort as rapidly as one can manage to control. Essentially, anyone who can stabilize the hips while controlling deceleration of the tornado ball can participate in this drill. The drills can be done indoors or outdoors against a strong, solid wall for the participant to brace against. Reactive force of the torque causes one to naturally stabilize the pelvic core. You can’t imagine until you try it yourself!
