Abstract or Summary
  • There is limited knowledge regarding differential training as it relates to balance. The purpose of this study was to compare the performance and retention of a differential training balance program and a traditional balance program. Thirty-three Division I soccer athletes volunteered to participate and 29 completed the study. Participants were assigned into either a differential training program or a traditional program. The balance programs were part of the warm-up used before team activities during the non-traditional season. In order to evaluate the effects of the program, static balance was measured via time to boundary (TTB), dynamic balance via time to stabilization (TTS), and agility via the arrowhead agility test. A baseline TTB, TTS and arrowhead agility test was measured before the start of the intervention, then immediately after it ended. Finally, a retention test was done 14 days after the four-week intervention ended. We hypothesized there would be equivocal results between the differential training program and the traditional balance program after the four-week training, but the participants in the differential training group would demonstrate increased retention after two weeks of no training. Although we did find that the differential training had equivocal results to the traditional program, there were no differences in retention on any of the static or dynamic balance measures or agility tests when compared to the traditional program.
