Powerbag™ training enlists the use of stabilising muscles to a greater degree than working with traditional weights because of the inbuilt instability of its structure. The Powerbag™ uses a metal sand filling which deliberately shifts during use. This requires a high degree of stabilisation during lifting.
The link between training and actual physical performance is a vital ingredient that is so often lacking in training programmes.
For example, someone who spends three evenings per week at the gym may still suffer a stiff back or shoulders after doing DIY. So, what is the point of being stronger or fitter if the exercises performed in the gym do not assist with sports performance or the requirements of daily life?
This is where Powerbag™ training is of benefit, as it encourages the user to focus on the quality of movement rather than on weight lifted.
The design of the bag allows for a wide variety of different movement patterns and exercises that cover almost every aspect of daily life.
Whilst Powerbag™ based training emphasises the use of core stabilisers in functional movements, it is not simply another system for core training alone. Powerbag™ provides the tools for the development of functional, appropriate and specific training programmes for sporting, lifestyle and rehabilitation needs.
