Balanceboard: Das ultimative Geheimnis für optimales Workout

Balance board: The ultimate secret for an optimal workout

1. What is a balance board?


You've probably heard of it, but what is a balance board? A balance board is a type of skateboard without wheels. Normally, it consists of a flat platform that rests on a ball or cylinder. In our case, it can also be extended with four ball casters and can thus be converted into a gliding board. As such a versatile piece of fitness equipment, the balance board - or in our case the Kraxlboard Coreboard – can help you improve your balance and coordination. When you do exercises on the board, you have to constantly tense your muscles and thus train especially your core.

Training with a balance board has many benefits for your body. It not only improves your balance and coordination, but also your stability and flexibility. You also train your leg, abdominal and back muscles.

Another great advantage of balance board training is its enormous versatility. You can use your balance board for different exercises, such as squats, lunges or planks. There are also special exercises for the board itself, such as balance exercises on an unstable surface, unstable planks or dynamic push-ups.

All in all, a balance board is a great piece of fitness equipment for anyone who wants to improve their balance and coordination and train their body at the same time. So if you're looking for a new challenge for your workout, you should definitely try a balance board!


2. Why is core training an optimal workout?

The advantages of this type of training are obvious: you not only improve your posture and coordination, but also increase the efficiency of your workout.

Training on a balance board not only targets the large muscle groups, but also the small stabilisation muscles. These are often neglected in general training and can atrophy due to one-sided loads or movement patterns. By balancing on the board, these muscles are activated and strengthened, which leads to better body stability.

Another advantage of training with a balance board is that it is easy on the joints. Since no heavy weights are used in the exercises, your skeletal system is less stressed than with strength training in the gym. People with back pain or other complaints can also benefit from this gentle training. 

In addition, training on the balance board can be very varied - there are countless exercise options for beginners to advanced users. Regular training with a balance board offers many benefits for your health and fitness. It improves your coordination, posture and flexibility and at the same time strengthens your muscles without damaging your joints - a perfect complement to the traditional workout in the gym!


3. What is the best way to exercise with a balance board?

There are many different exercises you can do with a balance board. Here are some popular options: 

  • Standing balance: Stand on the board and lift one leg. Try to keep your balance.
  • Squats: Perform squats on the board to work your legs and glutes.
  • Planks: Lie on the balance board in a plank position and hold it for as long as possible. This exercise strengthens your core, shoulders and arms.
