Integrating Ballistic Training
Integrating Ballistic Training
The integration of ballistic exercises and ballistic circuit training has gained popularity in recent years fueled by television infomercials (P90X and Insanity) and performance based group exercise programs like CrossFit®. Oftentimes utilized in the athletic environments, ballistic training can certainly present new challenges to an exercise program and promote additional adaptations beyond traditional strength training, but not without certain risks. As fitness enthusiasts look for new and entertaining stimulus to promote physical fitness, many activities once reserved for conditioned athletes enter mainstream fitness. Personal trainers should have a clear understanding of the risks, benefits, and purposes of these training techniques so they can best implement strategies to promote safe and effective training.
