US-68.m4a. Instability Devices. By: Sarah Juenemann, Brooklyn Cain, Amaya Payne, and Jessica Prothero.

Scene 2 (12s)

US-68 2.m4a. Introduction. Example of Instability Devices: Bosu ball, foam roller, wobble boards, suspension chains, rope, and even gravel or sand Instability Training: a type of training in order to strengthen parts of the body (i.e., Core or Trunk) in order to avoid injury, improve muscular skeletal health, provide strength or agility and many more reasons. The purpose of our presentation is to acknowledge the good and bad of instability devices, educate people are the effectiveness, provide information on the training style. Three Main points: Effectiveness Side Effects Program Demonstration.

Scene 4 (2m 28s)

New Recording 2.m4a. Literature Review. Multiple studies looking at push-ups performed with multiple instability devices Results showed an increase in muscle activation within the abdominal wall, pectoralis major, triceps brachii, anterior deltoid, latissimus dorsi, serratus anterior, and trapezius. Planks have also shown an increase in activation in the rectus abdominis, external obliques, and lower back with the use of these devices Conflicting research showed no difference in activity in the rectus abdominis when participants did sit-ups both with and without an isolation device (Saeterbakken). Researchers even found a reduced activity in the obliques during this (Duncan)..

BOSU Ball Demonstrations.

Scene 8 (7m 45s)

US-68 3.m4a. Conclusion. We believe that this training program is ineffective. Conflicting evidence Overuse injuries Other possible side effects (muscle activation reduction, strength and agility decrease i.e.).
