Improving Players' Athleticism: Balance & Stability

with Jason Papalio,
Athletic Recovery Training Specialist;
staff consultant for Manhattan College's 2014 and 2015 MAAC Champion basketball teams;
Has worked with high school, college and professional athletes

Every season, coaches explore various techniques to help their players improve. Oftentimes, the focus is on skill-based techniques and many people overlook how to build their athletes' balance and athleticism within the game.

In this video, Jason Papalio shows you ways to improve your athletes' athleticism on the court, utilizing various pieces of equipments such as rearrange harness and balance rings in order to build strength, power, balance and speed. Your off-season and in-season pre- or post-practice routines can be positively affected by implementing some of these training methods.

CoreVYO Harness

Papalio begins by showing a tool that engages the core. He combines breathing techniques with the harness to help improve performance. The harness will allow you to work toward preventing injuries, but with the resistance it also boosts overall performance. With a CoreVYO harness, you'll get effective, low-impact exercises that will pay dividends with your team's improved athleticism during the season.

Balance Pad

The next tool Papalio shares focuses specifically on balance and stability. A balance pad engages the core, makes you be 'in the moment' and can strengthen the joints. Additionally, it will improve the energy consumption and mental focus of your athletes by creating the same environment that players will experience in a game. The balance pads also allow coaches and trainers to see how a player naturally moves, which allows you to see, and address, imbalance.


Coach Papalio can change the resistance when using a harness to match the needs of each individual athlete. He shows multiple drills that you can do using both the harness and balance pad including conditioning, ball handling, shooting, defense, and other skill-building drills.

This video covers improving athlete performance by building a solid foundation of balance and stability. As you progress from dynamic stretching, you can improve a player's core and strength with low-impact exercises. Papalio's techniques are effective year-round and you'll observe a noticeable increase in their overall performance as you begin to implement these into your program.

Improving Players' Athleticism: Recovery Techniques

After a game or hard practice, it might seem normal to immediately pack up and head to the locker room. However, what you're missing out on may be one of the most important components to your team's longevity over the course of a season.

Athletic recovery training specialist Jason Papalio explains the importance of using recovery techniques in this video. You'll learn why it's essential to warm-down to prevent injuries and ensure that your athletes can bounce back quickly for the next game or practice.

Cat Cow Pose

Yoga has proven to be a beneficial tool in building strength, improving flexibility and better breathing. Injuries can occur when players lack flexibility, which makes building flexibility and strength two points you should address every day.

Core strength is important. However, players must also be flexible and not focus only on building the core. In Cat Cow Pose, athletes create space within the spine, flexibility of the spine, build muscles and incorporate proper breathing techniques.

Dynamic Lunge

Papalio showcases the dynamic lunge advanced exercise, which builds core and arm/leg muscles, incorporates balance, and strengthens the body. Body weight exercises are low-impact and can be used to help build muscles in the glutes, quads and hamstrings. Lunges are an excellent way to improve hip stability, overcome muscular imbalances and strengthen the quads to run faster and jump higher.


This section is part of Papalio's cool-down routine. These techniques help players relax after doing poses that may be challenging. The stretching helps lengthen the muscles and open the hips. It can also help flush the lymphatic system.

Coach Papalio covers a wide array of techniques that improve recovery in this video. If you want to make sure your team stays healthy and always competes at its optimal level, you need to emphasize recovery every day.
