Indo Board Man Hosts Dinner Party – Mega Indo Board Returns!

Indo Board - Life is About Balance

Return of the Mega Indo Board

This week to celebrate Indo Board Man’s Son in Law’s birthday, he hosted a small dinner party featuring certified Authentic Wagyu Beef and Exotic side dishes expertly prepared by Top Chef candidate Chef Nico. All this was accompanied with some monster Red Wines from Indo Board Man’s wine cellar. Before master chef Nico cooked Wagyu NY Strip, he and professional Fly Boarder, Connor Brondes, showed off their skills on some of Indo Board Man’s private Indo Board collection. The boys were thrilled with the chance to hone their Longboard surfing skills with coaching their form, carefully explained by Indo Board Man. They were shown the importance of attaining efficiency and style in their cross step movements. This happens when careful attention is focused on the correct posture with head and shoulders properly aligned above the hips and feet which ultimately produces fluid motion across the board.

Master Chef Nico shows off his skills

Flyboarder Connor Brondes also joined in on the fun.

Connor showed off his newly learned cross stepping skills.

But the 15 inch high cross stepper was just the warm up, soon the Mega Indo Board made an appearance.

The Mega Indo Board has a 10 foot board and the roller is 36 inches in diameter.

After the fun on the Mega Indo Board, it was time to cook the Wagyu NY Strip steak cooked and bathed in the awesome flavor maker duck fat! They really worked up an appetite!

Functional Movement Workouts Using the Indo Board Mini Kicktail

Indo Board - Life is About Balance

Using the Indo Board Mini Kicktail

The Mini Kicktail was designed for skateboarders who want to do BIG tricks, first and foremost,  but I bet you didn’t know the Mini Kicktail can also be used to help you get a great functional movement workout! Recently, Bob Guenther and Kim White learned first hand what you can do with the Mini Kicktail. The small size of the deck allows for some very interesting and challenging options when doing planks, pushups, split squats and so much more.

Indo Board Man, Hunter Joslin demonstrates exercises on the Mini Kicktail.

In the next video, Indo Board Man demonstrates a plank on the Mini Kicktail

Indo Board Master Instructor Training with Bob Guenther & Kim White

Indo Board - Life is About Balance

Indo Board Master Instructor Training

A couple weeks ago, Bob Guenther and Kim White from Fit For You Gym in Traverse City, Michigan made the trip down to the Indo Board Balance Trainer HQ to train with Indo Board Man. They spent a couple days with Indo Board Man and were certified Master Instructors of Indo Board.

During their training, Indo Board Man, showed them several exercises to try out with their classes on various Indo Boards. In the video below, Master Instructor Indo Board Man is showing Bob how to use the Gigante cushion and Kicktail Pro to train for Stand Up Paddleboard. Indo Board Man is showing Bob how to simulate paddling on a SUP with the proper form which is top hand directly above the bottom hand.

 

In the next video, Indo Board man shows how he uses a kettle bell to add difficulty to doing a squat on an Indo Board Original Barefoot. The Indo Balance Board offers an interesting mental challenge to a normal squat. Then ad resistance in the form of a kettlebell and you really up the challenge both physically and mentally.

The Fit For You Gym gave them an awesome welcome home up returning to Michigan!

If you are in the Traverse City area, check out Fit For You‘s website to see when you can train with Bob and Kim with the Indo Board Balance Board Training System.!

 

Congrats to Bob and Kim for becoming Indo Board Certified Master Instructors!

Keep checking back for more videos from their training sessions!

If you are a trainer and interested in becoming a certified Indo Board Trainer, email us at contact@indoboard.com.

Fit Friday! Indo Board Push-Ups

Fit Friday!

Today we will discuss the Indo Board Push Up! This is a great way to take a push up and add difficulty by adding instability. Now the push up can be done using either the roller or the Indo FLO cushion. Up on our You Tube Channel you can find several videos helping you accomplish the proper form and different levels of difficulty you can add to an Indo Board push up.

In the video below, trainer Chris shows you the basics to starting an Indo Board push up. He starts out with just the board on the ground and then shows you how to progress from the cushion to the roller in later videos in the series.

Another variation to the push up is the push up plank. Kristina shows you level by level how to start a push up plank with the Indo Board in the video below.

 

Next, you can see an example of doing push ups on the roller in this video by Hitkbfit.

Another variation of an Indo Board push up is shown in this video by Coach Robb Beams. He uses the Rocker and FLO cushion and places his feet on the board instead of his arms.

You can check out our You Tube channel for even more push up tutorials!
