Get More Out of Your Workout with a Balance Board

Fitness enthusiasts and athletes alike,  will more often than not,  include stability training into their workout regimen in order to enhance performance. Having good balance can improve your workout effectiveness and performance on the field.  Good balance really helps when it comes to strengthening core muscles to give you better support while reducing your risk of injury.  Many of the exercises you already perform quite easily can be made more challenging with the use of a balance board.  Fitness trainers, athletes, and fitness newbies utilize a balance board in their workout programs, in exercises such as push-ups, planks, and body weight squats, to recruit stabilizer muscles, that will assist the primary muscle group, and promote full muscle activation.

Stability Training with Balance Boards

Fitness is all about consistent exercise and good eating habits. When it comes to exercise most of us focus on cardio and weight training, and balance training seldom comes to mind. Balance training can provide excellent benefits to one’s overall health and wellness. Balance and stability training is a form of light to moderate exercise that helps train the body to use and strengthen stabilizer muscles to help us improve our balance. A balance board is an excellent fitness tool designed to aid in balance training. Balance boards provide an excellent introduction to balance training. A balance board is a board with various shapes and sizes attached under it, and is used in balance training. Because of the instability of the board, you engage all of the muscles in your feet and your core to maintain balance. This improves your overall stability Balance boards are a small investment with great benefits to your health and they are made highly durable.Balance boards are ideal for barefoot training or with shoes on. The solid surface of a board engages primarily the muscles in the ankle. Balance boards are great fitness tools for anyone that takes part in balance training, beginners, seniors, and experienced athletes alike.

A Balance Board Improves Stability

Stability is a very important part of everyday life.  We must integrate exercise into our daily routine to keep our stabilizer muscles nice and strong, so we don’t compromise our stability.  Stabilizer muscles are responsible for keeping you balanced, to help you maintain good equilibrium.  Stability can be compromised in a couple of ways.  As we get older, our balance and ability to maintain equilibrium become less effective.  An injury is another way to hamper stability or affect the way we walk (our natural gait). Working with a balance board will improve balance and stability.

How to Reduce Back Pain with your Balance Board

Improving balance and strengthening your core, will strengthen those lower back muscles and help you improve your posture.  Good posture and a strong back will allow you to walk, run, workout, even get up out of a chair pain-free.  Back pain is often the result of weak back muscles and poor posture. Balance boards improve posture, strengthen core muscles and help reduce back pain caused by not having good posture and a strong core.

Improve Your Motor Skills with Balance Board Training

Good motor skills at every age are important.  Children, teenagers, adults, and especially seniors, benefit greatly from sharp motor skills.  Motor skills improvement comes with better strength, balance, stability, and coordination.  These are all skills we can improve upon by using our balance board.  A balance board can be especially helpful as we move into adulthood.  We all need to keep our motor skills and reaction times sharp as we age.

Conditioning and Rehabilitation – Balance Board Physical Therapy

Balance boards play an integral role in some injury and post-surgical rehabilitation.  Physical therapists will use stability rehab as a way of increasing mobility and strengthen muscles after an injury or surgical procedure.  The soft composition and non-slip surface of a balance board make it an excellent choice for a Physical Therapists prescriptive plan to incorporate balance boards in their therapies.  Here are a few examples of how a balance board can be used in rehabilitative services. Balance boards have been used in rehabilitation for:

  • Knee surgery
  • ACL injuries
  • Ankle sprains
  • Hip replacement
  • Pain management

Why Choose a Balance Board?

Balance boards are a versatile piece of exercise equipment, with many uses.  Balance boards can be used in a light warmup, or as an essential part of your balance and stability training.  It can also be used as an integral part of a strength training workout.  For example, a balance board can be used as a substitute for a yoga mat to further increase and improve balance and stamina.  And lastly, balance boards have been used successfully in the medical field by Physical therapists, using it as an important tool to help their patients rehab and recover more quickly and to help them regain their balance, strength, and mobility. There are various types of balance aids to use.  Balance boards are relatively safe because of their flat surface, with less risk of falling off the board by wearing shoes and then progressing to barefoot training.  Below is an example of several exercises you can do with your balance board.

Foam Board Balance Exercises

Here’s a quick list of some of the best balance exercises we use every day. Its generally recommended that you hang onto something like a bar or door knob while working with the board.

One-Leg Stands: To strengthen your ankles and knees, one-leg stands can really work those lower leg stabilizers. Place one foot in the center of your balance board. Slowly raise one leg and stand balanced on one leg for a count of ten seconds.  Repeat with the other leg.

Crawls: Start these in a pushup position with one or both feet on the floor and the balance board situated to the left or right of the hands.  Move the outside hand over the near hand and onto the board.  Reverse the movement and repeat.

Lunges: Stand with both feet either on or off the balance board.  Lunge forward, onto or off the board.  Stabilize and return to the upright or starting position.  Try these laterally, to the rear or as crossovers.

Push-ups: Perform these with hands on opposite corners of the balance board and feet stacked out to one side.  As a variation, try performing push-ups with one hand on the board and the other on the floor.

Single Leg Squats – Stand on the balance board on one foot, holding a medicine ball or dumbbells in front of you at waist level.  Squat to a below parallel position while extending the medicine ball or dumbbells forward.  Return to the upright position and repeat on both sides.  Variations: Practice this exercise on a stable surface first and then try it on a plyo box or step.

Single-Leg Biceps Curl – This is a great full-body workout that targets multiple muscle groups simultaneously. For this exercise, you will need a pair of dumbbells (5-10 pounds). Stand on the board with feet placed equally apart while holding a dumbbell in each hand at your sides. Slowly raise one leg up to form a 90-degree angle at the hip and knee. Maintain balance on the one leg as you proceed to do a classic biceps curl bringing the dumbbells up to your shoulders, bending your elbows out then slowly bring the dumbbells back down. Repeat the step with the opposite leg, carrying out 6 reps each. Standing on your balance board with a pair of dumbbells in your hands, slowly raise one leg until you feel balanced.  Then begin to do traditional curls.  As a variation, you can do alternating curls which challenge you even more with balance.

These are only some of the best balance exercises, we will add more in the future, so keep coming back to this page for more updates and information on new ways to use your foam balance board.

Safely using your Balance Board

Before starting any exercise program, you should first consult your physician to be sure balance training is right for you.  You should always discuss any medical conditions or special needs you have that may make balance training not ideal.

Always place the board on a stable surface: The rocker creates optimal instability. Never place it on a surface that may not be sturdy or can wobble beneath the board as this can lead to injury. The ideal placement is on the floor and near something sturdy, such as a counter or wall, to grab onto if you feel as though you are going to fall.

Stop at the sign of pain: If you feel any pain from exercising with your balance board, stop immediately and consult your physician. Adding a balance board to your workout can be an excellent way to challenge your body and improve your balance and mobility.  Start slowly with your balance board and get a feel for the unstable environment you are exposing to your body.  Proceed to more difficult exercises as you become more comfortable with your balance board.

A balance board is a high-quality piece of exercise equipment and is perfectly suited for exercise, physical therapy, rehabilitation and various other activities like yoga and stretching. Seniors will enjoy it for stability training because it’s comfortable and safe to use. Be creative and incorporate the use of a balance board into your life.

Balance Board Squat:  Stand on the balance board with both arms straight out in front of you, holding onto your partners hands.  Squat down slowly as low as you can without discomfort, or as low as if you were sitting in a chair, and then stand straight up again.  Repeat 3-5 times or whatever is comfortable for you.
