Re: Solo Training Exercises

Neat, I was shown something very similar for yiquan practice (though with an ordinary basketball - if the basketball isn't slightly deflated you also get some trigger point therapy to boot...). You can practice keeping pressure on the ball, but at the same time, go slow and do "shili" on it - keep the whole body muscular activation, or stop at one point and practice static tension work - making sure your ability to move in any direction out of that one point with coordinated muscular activation is there.

You can also do this without the ball at all just to work on the muscular activation without having to worry about keeping pressure on the ball, just transitioning through bridging, pushing hip out, turning under, tumbling, etc.
