Relationship between core endurance and dynamic balance in college level football players: A pilot study


Author(s): Harish S Krishna, Sudeep Shetty and Akshay S Raj

Abstract: As a game of fast and varied movements maintaining dynamic balance is integral in football. The objective of the study is to find out the relationship between core endurance and dynamic balance in college level football players.
Methodology: 20 college level football players between 18-25 years of age was included in this study. Core endurance was assessed using McGill core endurance test and dynamic balance was assessed using modified star excursion balance test.
Result: There was no significant correlation between core endurance and dynamic balance in college level football players.
Conclusion: Core endurance training alone will not be enough to improve dynamic balance. Proprioceptive training and other strengthening domains should be included in order to improve the dynamic balance in football players.
