Abstract :

Balance training has evolved into a very important area of focus for our fitness industry. It has become its own section in exercise programs, where it may take someone the rough a series of balance exercises. Many would describe balance as the ability to remain still over a base of support that is small. There are several things to consider when training balance, body position, footwear, training balance in motion, surface, integration of the body and righting vs. Equilibrium reflexes (Nasher, 1997), (Hong and Chan, 2004) . The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of a training program of muscular balance on numerical level and performance of 100 meter female runners with hamstring strain. Methods: 10 female players of 100 meter run with hamstring strain volunteered for the study. They performed balance training for three times per week for 12 weeks. Each training unit included of one legged balance and balance exercises which help to train pro-prioceptive system before and after the end of the program, performance tests: vertical jump, maximal isometric strength of the leg extensors was measured with a dynamometer, shuttle run test, stability posture using Biodex stability system together with numerical level of 100 meter run. Statistical analysis using T test was performed P < 0.05. The Results revealed an increased value of vertical jumps and improved of isometric lower limb extension strength, and a benefit of shuttle run tests, and improvement of balance test after the proposed program compared to the cases before the program. Conclusion: Balance training might improve balance stability of hamstring strain and performance together with improvement of the numerical level of the female runners.
