Building a strong and flexible core is vital for increased strength and power in other parts of the body. Just like the foundations in a building the role of the core is to stabilise the frame of the body.
Balance training on the Rooboard places an emphasis on muscular symmetry and postural control. By identifying your imbalances and strengthening these weaknesses you will improve your posture and core strength as well as the way your body moves around its centre of gravity. Building a strong core is essential to prevent lower back pain and ward off a possible injury.
Good core strength is vital to maintain perfect posture. It helps to prevent slumping which in turn can lead to lower back and neck pain, repetitive strain injuries and a generally miserable outlook. We can sleep better, work more efficiently and enjoy our lives to the fullest when our posture is unconsciously perfect and pain free.
Balance is innate but we can also improve our balance dramatically with training. Balance and stability training increases our agility, reaction time, flexibility and the way unconsciously move around our centre of gravity. If we want to react to changes in our environment to ensure our safety, before we are even aware of it – we need to train for balance.
