He captioned the post, “Core and stability session going one step ahead”.

Since medicinal balls can be challenging to work with, owing to their unstable nature, more effort is required while exercising which helps the stabiliser muscles in the body (that play second fiddle to the pectorals, biceps and triceps) to increase the body’s balance. Using them regularly for bodyweight moves is known to help build functional strength that reduces the risk of sporting injury, improves posture and helps support the heavier compound lifts like squats and overhead presses.
