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.
The Rooboard fitness product adds instability to over one hundred exercises to increase total body strength and fitness. The instability element forces the core and stabiliser muscles to engage which in turn increases the intensity. This means the users can exercise for less time than they would have previously for substantial gains in strength, balance and muscular symmetry.
The Rooboard is especially good at increasing core strength. High levels of core strength are vital for postural strength and to prevent lower back pain and injuries. The cognitive element of balance and stability training will also help to sharpen your mind – especially your unconscious reaction speed to instability.
At only 30cm in length it is the smallest balance board on the market. It is also the most functional and is unbreakable. It will not damage flooring or sink into the ground when used outdoors because it uses EVA foam pads as the balance points rather than plastic or wood. The indented grip surface is comfortable and shock absorbing and means it can be used from the hands or forearms as well as the traditional seated and standing exercises.
