- Gait and posture are complex tasks that place considerable demands on the body’s central and peripheral nervous systems. Multiple sensory modalities, including vestibular, visual, musculosensory, and plantar cutaneous receptors, are involved in the organization and control of human erect posture. Accordingly, the best approach to develop a fall-reduction program is to include both balance training, and strength training, as well as flexibility training, in the individual’s exercise program. Fall Prevention Training: Improving Balance, Posture, and Gait With Kettlebells details how to incorporate kettlebell training into a fall-reduction program, thereby adding an innovative twist to any basic balance and flexibility exercise.
