This exercise develops the musculature of the upper body, shoulders, low back, and core. While upper body strength is an important part of overall fitness and body balance, what makes this exercise great is the development of whole-body stability and core strength.
This exercise develops explosive power with an element of dynamic balance and body control. The lateral movement requires hip and core strength combined with a traditional jumping motion, where the athlete must maintain body control and equal balance of the feet.
This exercise develops single-leg strength, balance, and mobility in the hips. Single-leg strength is animportant element of greeskiing, and the additional stress of inline balance while strength training is a unique combination in one exercise.
