No Gym Glutes
Use this quick and easy workout on the Rooboard to tighten and tone the gluteus maximus muscle and improve balance and stability.
There are five exercises in the routine. Perform each exercise for 30-60 seconds on each leg before moving onto the next exercise.
When the gluteus maximus takes its fixed point from the pelvis, it extends the acetabulofemoral joint and brings the bent thigh into a line with the body.
Taking its fixed point from below, it acts upon the pelvis, supporting it and the trunk upon the head of the femur; this is especially obvious in standing on one leg.
Its most powerful action is to cause the body to regain the erect position after stooping, by drawing the pelvis backward, being assisted in this action by the biceps femoris (long head), semitendinosus, semimembranosus, and adductor magnus.
The gluteus maximus is a tensor of the fascia lata, and by its connection with the iliotibial band steadies the femur on the articular surfaces of the tibia during standing, when the extensor muscles are relaxed.
The Rooboard combines balance and wobble board, gym ball, slant board and air cushion training in a single product.
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.
