The rocker board high side reach is good for developing core strength and balance. If you don’t have a partner to throw the ball to you, you can throw the ball to yourself by bouncing it off a wall. The real key to this exercise is not to fall off of the rocker board. This exercise is good for basketball, football and other exercises that involve catching a ball and maintaining your balance.
- Carefully step onto a rocker board and balance.
- Reach and catch a ball thrown to the side at shoulder level, while maintaining balance.
- Carefully step off.
- Keeping one end of the board on the ground throughout
