The Truth About Unstable Surface Training: An Athletic Trainer’s Perspective

Written on November 6, 2008 at 2:45 pm, by Eric Cressey

“As someone who has both rehabbed injured athletes and trained healthy people for over 18 years, I can honestly say that Eric Cressey’s The Truth about Unstable Surface Training is a breath of fresh air.

“Being a certified athletic trainer and a strength and conditioning coach has afforded me a unique perspective in the training world. I have watched personal trainers, strength coaches, athletic trainers and physical therapists use and abuse unstable surface training.

“Eric has combined his in-the-trenches experience with research to uncover the truth behind unstable surface training. This book is a must-read for anyone that trains, rehabs, or coaches, people in anyway. Yes, that means Physical Therapists, Athletic Trainers, Personal Trainers, and Strength Coaches.

“I hope that this book will help to “Stop the madness” of a training fad that has gotten out of control and help to support the proper uses of unstable surface training.

“I know I will be referring this work to my network of athletic trainers, strength coaches, physical therapists and personal trainers.”

    The book looks great Eric.

    I am excited about using the information in it to defend my stance on unstable surface training to misinformed clients.

    a trainer in work was standing on two medicine balls – one under each foot – performing side raises – is it illegal to hit them ?

    Your book failed to raise the legal implications involved in such an action
