This exercise that is perfect for ball players that are on the field, gets a lot of weird looks because of how strange of an exercise it looks. But, if you are weak in any of the areas these movements focus on then it will for sure show up on the field. The movements are designed to strengthen your core as well as your hip and shoulder rotation, all of these things are important for your performance.
“The fact that you can train all of these attributes with one movement makes it a go-to exercise in my book—even if it does prompt some perplexed looks. But you can’t just grab a weight and stand up from the ground and think you’ll get stronger.”
