Dynamic balance

Dynamic balance is the ability of the player to maintain a controlled centre of gravity (cog) while the player is moving. This ability to maintain balance in a dynamic environment allows the player to successfully use all muscular forces and movements efficiently (Kibler 1994). This efficient energy transfer from the ground and up through the entire kinetic chain will result into a more efficient and powerful management of the movement. Additionally, dynamic balance can refer to the ability during movements of opposing muscles to work optimally together to produce optimal uncompensated movement patterns.
