    Dumbell press on a ball rather than a bench?

    push ups with your feel on the balance ball thingies?

    etc etc.

    What does OT think about this stuff?

    I'm doing it anyway, just to see how this pans out for me.

    A pushup is just one of the things you can do with the ACW... its by far one of the best core building tools out there. Nothing will kick your ass like The Wheel

    "If you are using a ball you are doing it wrong."

    Core strength?
    -heavy front squats (atg)
    -back squats (atg)
    -push jerks/ jerks
    -anytime you are putting heavy weights over head and holding for more than a sec or 1.5 secs, you will be training you core.

    Unilateral work will hit your core harder than anything bilateral
