  • BackgroundThe effectiveness of strength training on unstable surfaces (STU) versus stable surfaces (STS) or a control condition (CON; i.e. no training or regular training only) for strength, power and balance performance across the lifespan has not yet been investigated in a systematic review and meta-analysis. [...] Key MethodData SourcesA computerized systematic literature search was performed in the electronic databases PubMed and Web of Science from January 1984 up to February 2015.Study Eligibility…Expand Abstract
