In this workshop, participants experience a fully integrated workout using the Twist Ball, an air-filled weighted workout ball. The same size and density as a larger Mini Stability Ball, the Twist Ball features a shifting center of sand and two soft foam handles. Once whole-body movement is mastered, participants can increase the variable load and challenge the connective tissue system through new creative exercises. Learn healthy load transfer strategies using drag, pick-up and toss style movements that reinforce whole-body motion, control, strength and coordination to manage acceleration and deceleration forces. Selected exercises in this workshop created by the team at Merrithew™ emphasize movement variables and fascial concepts.
- Explore full-body movements that incorporate current fascial concepts related to exercise
- Discover how the Twist Ball can be added to increase challenge to mastered movements
- Develop the stability and control to manage a shifting weight in traditional and non-traditional movements
- Discuss how fascial system concepts can be integrated in a variety of standing and Mat-based exercises
