Mini But Mean
If there are 4 exercises you really need to do, these are it. Performed on a mini balance board they will transform your base fitness and strength.
Originally designed to make training faster, more effective and portable for surfers who work in the city of London. The Rooboard has evolved into the ultimate fitness and exercise product for proactive and productive lifestyles.
The Rooboard combines balance and wobble board, gym ball, slant board and air cushion training in a single product.
You perform full range of motion exercises to increase balance, stability, fitness, core strength and muscular symmetry. The Rooboard creates targeted and measured instability which forces the stabiliser muscles to engage. This means you are continually strengthening the core, even when performing upper and lower body strength exercises.
Dynamic Plank Exercises
1. Plank Cross Step
The plank cross step is an excellent exercise for core strength and stability. As with all plank exercises try to keep the back straight as possible.
Tap the forward foot in line with its opposite elbow.
2. Plank with leg lift
Improving abdominal and lower back strength is vital for good posture and avoiding lower back pain and injury.
The plank with leg lift using the Rooboard balance trainer is simple exercise for core strength. The Rooboard forces the core to engage to maintain balance which increases the intensity of the workout leading to faster and more pronounced strength gains.
3. Static Plank
The static plank can be performed from the hands or on the forearms. Keep the body as straight and tight as possible. Performing the static plank on the Rooboard increases the intensity markedly. First time users are amazed at the extra effort required and the targeted isolation of the core muscles.
4. Plank with side steps
Adding a side step to the plank adds a complex stability movement and increases oblique strength.
Again – keep the back as straight and tight as possible. This is a more advanced exercise. Do not sacrifice form for repetitions.
