Core Strength and Abdominal Definition
Balance board exercises are some of the best exercises you can do to strengthen the core and develop strong abdominal definition.
The Rooboard balance trainer was designed to enhance these exercises by forcing the core muscles to engage. This increases the intensity and also isolates the specific muscles in and around the abdominals that make up the core.
Balance training on the Rooboard places an emphasis on muscular symmetry and postural control. By identifying your imbalances and strengthening these weaknesses you will improve your posture and core strength as well as the way your body moves around its centre of gravity. Building a strong core is essential to prevent lower back pain and ward off a possible injury.
Strengthening your core and specifically the obliques will also help you to develop a perfect posture and killer abs as explained by Kellan Lutz in Mens Health. “Staying upright on a horse is harder on your abs than anything and swinging a sword around really hits your core as well as your arms,” he says. Granted, there are no swords or horses at your gym, but the point is that for unreal abs you need genuine instability.”
