Abstract

The goal of the functional warm-up is to stimulate sensory and motor components related to preparatory (feed-forward) and reactive (feed-back) systems through functionally integrated movement patterns. This article presents balance and postural stability exercises that are easily implemented into the functional warm-up as a movement preparation strategy for youth athletes.
