Unstable Surface Training

I recently did a little searching for some information on unstable surface training and found some interesting results.
-unstable surfaces increase muscle activity during planks and birddogs, but not as much during bridges, curl up, and side planks (side bridges)
-unstable surface doesn’t add to serratus, upper, low trap, biceps
-raising feet will increase serratus and upper trap EMG
-pecs don’t increase EMG w/ unstable surface
-triceps and rectus abdominis do increase EMG on ball
-external oblique increases with push up plus on ball
-rectus abdominis and external oblique increased on ball
-erector spinae and internal oblique no increase on ball
