Trim the fat from your workouts with these balance board muscle hacks to boost your exercise productivity and increase fitness.
Designed by Londoner Mason Gilmour-Platt to stay in shape for surfing while working hundreds of miles from the ocean, the Rooboard combines the functionality of many pieces of fitness equipment in a single portable package.
The Rooboard creates instability which forces the stabiliser muscles to engage, which in turn increases the intensity of the exercises performed. This means shorter body weight workouts for increased gains.
From targeted muscle group exercises for core and balance to HIIT and sports specific workouts the Rooboard can trim your existing training sessions or become your single piece of goto fitness equipment.
The compact size and unique design features mean the Rooboard can be used in almost any location at any time of day. These muscle hacks will change the way you approach your muscular training and schedule your workout sessions.
The Rooboard is being used in offices, gyms and homes in UK. It has disrupted the exercise beliefs of many people and completely shifted perceptions of core and balance training to improve posture and prevent lower back pain.

With training our balance and stability can improve markedly. These subtle changes in the way our body moves around its centre of gravity and the speed in which it does so, can have a huge impact in our quality of life and sporting performances.
Balance training is functional. This means we are engaging several muscle groups at the same time using a natural flow and transition through the movements. Strength training usually involves isolating a single muscle while we apply stress to it. When we add the balance component we also engage the stabiliser muscles.
Balance and stability training will improve our posture, lower back strength, reactions, range of motion and functional strength. It will also improve our sporting performances. For sports like surfing, snowboarding and skating, balance training should be a vital part of every training programme.
