Balance Beyond The Plateau
We all reach a training and exercise plateau from time to time. This is the point our gains and motivation remain stagnant or even decrease.
Balance training with the Rooboard provided the spark for me to get back on track and return to positive, strength building and fitness gaining workout sessions.
Balance training engages your stabiliser muscles and it also creates tension. This can lead to more focused isolation of the muscle groups you are training leading to faster and pronounced gains.
Have Fun With Balance
Balance training can be one of the most enjoyable parts of your training programme. You cannot help but smile when you see your training partner with arms flailing. Can you do better though?
Coordinated balance and stability training is also a great measurement for progress. Changes in strength and muscularity can take some time. Improvements in balance and functional core strength come quickly and you take your body to amazing levels of stability.
Balance training means we improve the way our body moves around its centre of gravity. Training enables us to do this unconsciously and against opposing stresses or unexpected changes in the environment.
Exercising for balance and stability is a part of every professional sports persons training regime. In this video professional boxers Erik and Golden are performing narrow squats on the Rooboard balance trainer, with professional conditioning and sports specific coach Damien Orfanoudakis. Balance training is fun, especially with a face off!
Muscles Around Your Spine
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.
Once the preserve of athletes, the benefits of balance and stability training are slowly moving into the mainstream consciousness. This type of training improves postural strength, spinal stability and coordination.
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.
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.
