Apparently, taking stability ball training to new extremes is a key part of the Olympic preparation for our winter Olympic athletes. Earlier this month I did a post on Julia Marcuso doing squats on the stability ball.
I don't know how many of you have been watching the Olympic's but during last night's Snowboard Cross Trials NBC aired a brief segment of Graham Watanabe training with a stability ball. The key part of this training was Graham jumping from a mini trampoline onto a stability ball and sticking the landing.... ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
Here is a link to watch the video on NBC's Olympic Coverage website.
