Chasing The Dream
When it comes to losing body fat for the dream stomach it is not normally abdominal exercises that do it. Unless these abdominal exercises can keep the heart rate elevated for long enough to enter the fat burning zone.
This workout not only increases core and abdominal strength it also crosses into the body fat burning zone with high intensity interval training (HIIT).
Use this dynamic plank workout for increasing upper and lower abdominal strength. The Rooboard adds a dynamic element by introducing instability. This forces you to engage the core which in turn increases the intensity and isolation of the core muscles.
There are four key exercises plus a static plank hold in-between each exercise.
Set your timer for 30 seconds work and 30 seconds rest and complete as many rounds as you can.
1. Walking plank
2. Static plank
3. Plank cross-step
4. Static plank
5. Fire hydrant
6. Static plank
7. Plank side step
The exercises performed on the Rooboard for balance and stability are also scalable. From seated exercises with very little physical exertion to high intensity interval workouts there is an exercise and routine for every requirement.
The Rooboard is being used by hundreds of people for rehabilitation, sports specific training, fitness and improving functional movement and strength – especially in older users.
Balance and stability training engages the muscles and fibres that we take for granted. These are the muscles that stop us from slouching when seated, that enable us to stay upright when we slip or tread on an unstable surface, the same muscles that also enable us to react unconsciously to a dynamic environment.
By training these muscles we are training our unconscious mind to have faith in our body. To help us to have confidence in our movements, regardless of how unstable the environment is.
