Our feet essentially form the foundation on which our body moves. A wider foundation makes our body more stable; and athletes need an especially strong foundation because they demand instant turns and rotations, changes in direction, accelerations, and stops from their body. That kind of motor performance cannot be achieved without a strong foundation.
Example: Stable body on a broad foundation (fig. 1) and unstable body on a weak foundation (fig. 2).
To specifically improve the foundation and overall stability, we can use the wedge or rocker function of the BlackBoard Training System. These two settings enable us to specifically activate the surface or deeper muscle layers, which allows us to perform selective neuro-muscular training exercises.
