“Body row with down push with single leg chaos.” That on its own sounds like ‘chaos’, but the exercise seems to be even more difficult than the description. However, it’s very worthwhile for triathletes, pro triathlete Ben Kanute tells his followers. “A movement we progressed and worked toward, and one not necessarily focused on power”, he explains. “The body ball and medicine ball create ‘chaos’, as Pendola Project (strength and mobility coach, ed.) calls it. This movement focuses a lot on dynamic core stability, and the muscles we don’t usually use as endurance athletes. It’s great for holding position on the bike and even maintaining run and swim form.”
