I had a potential client come up to me for a tour (teenager) he is a three sport athlete and one of the sports he does is Bull Riding. How might a trainer go about training someone for that. I figure to work on a lot of balance techniques but still trying to come up with a unique way to train him for this activity.
This is an interesting question. I have two ideas. My first thought was to have him do squats on a BOSU while holding only one heavy dumb bell in his right hand and then a second set holding the dumb bell in his left hand. Then Nancy gave me this idea. If you have a large enough Swiss ball, have him sit on the Swiss ball as if he is sitting on a bull with his adductors squeezing tightly on the ball. Then have him hold on to the handles of a fully lengthened TRX while you gently pull on the other end of the TRX straps in different directions trying to challenge him to stay on the ball without falling off.
