If two years of high school wrestling taught me anything, it is the importance of balance. As such, I intend to spend a significant portion of my training budget to purchase the tools necessary to improve the balance of my athletes. I plan to purchase plenty of BOSU Balance Trainers, stability balls, and balance boards. It doesn’t do any good to be strong if you can’t balance on a specialized piece of equipment. As the saying goes, “You can’t shoot a cannon from a canoe.” I will know that I have made an impact and introduced scientific Western training methods when I have my top sumo wrestlers performing barbell back squats while standing upon stability balls.
It should be noted that the post above was part of an April Fools’ Day prank. I was not serious. 🙂
