Fit Friday! How to do a Squat on the Indo Board Balance Board

Now that you have an Indo Board Balance Board and you want to start a workout regimen, you should check out our You Tube Channel and look at some of the workouts we have posted! There are exercises from trainers and athletes located around the world who submit their personal video clips to share the versatility and FUN that makes the Indo Board so popular. Some of the videos feature Olympic athletes from a variety of Olympic Sports including snow skiing, snowboarding, BMX, and archery.

The first video I will show you is the beginner Squat.

These videos are great and show you a step by step way to progress into more challenging exercises using the Indo Board with either the IndoFLO cushion or the Roller. If you are a little more advanced, check out a video farther into the workout. Below is a workout showing how to do high capacity squats with the Indo Board.

You can see in this video, Kristina inflated the cushion to add more instability. The joy of working out with the FLO cushion is the ease of adding or taking out air to change up the intensity of the exercise.

Another variation of the squat you could do on the Indo Board is trying to do a squat with one foot on the Indo Board and one foot on the ground as demonstrated by our office manager/personal trainer extraordinaire, Kelly.

Kelly only semi inflated the IndoFLO cushion to start out the squat. She did squats for 30 seconds before switching which foot was on the ground and on the board.

Have fun and remember Life is About Balance!

The 2018 Winter Olympic Athletes Secret Weapon – Part 1

The 2018 Winter Olympics are just around the corner. Several winter Olympians, including Lindsey Vonn, use the Indo Board as part of their training regimen. The US Olympic Snowboard Team uses the Indo Board as a warmup tool before competing.

Lindsey has consistently used the Indo Balance Board since her formative training with the Vail Ski and Snowboard Club as a kid. More recently she has used it to help her rehab from severe injuries which lead to her primary training to get her back Indo competitive form.

In this post, Lindsey Vonn is working on core strength as well as her upper body to rehab her injured arm. Try playing catch while on the Indo Board and see how adding in an extra movement boosts your workout while having fun!

The Indo Balance Board helps dramatically strengthen weak or injured ankles and knees. Sprained ankles are a leading injury among skiers and snowboarders. Doing some relatively easy ankle strengthening exercises using the Indo Board Balance Trainer can help you prevent injuries.

 Lindsey is using the Indo Board Mini Pro in this photo. The Mini Pro was developed working with professional wakeboarders and snowboarders who wanted a fun indoor training activity. The broad reach and importance the Indo Board Balance Trainer has for balance training across all board orientated sports and all sports activity is the perfect fit.

Ski Magazine even recorded a bit of her Balance Training workout. You can check it out here.

3 ways to start off on your New Years Resolutions with Indo Board!

You can start your year off right and tackle those New Years Resolutions with the Indo Board Balance Board.

The easiest way of making your resolutions pay off with the Indo Board is to simply start using it! 

The journey to getting fit with the help of the Indo Board starts with working on your core strength. Indo Board Man demonstrates the basics in this video.

The easiest way to start out with the roller is to hold on to something like a counter, couch, or chair and practice not letting the deck touch the ground. It will take a little time to get used to the motion but you are already getting a work out! The learning curve is usually very quick and lots of FUN.

_____________________________________

Use your Indo FLO at your desk.

Don’t have a lot of free time to exercise? Stuck at the office long hours? Why not bring your Indo Board Balance Board and IndoFLO cushion to the office!

Indo Board Man stands on the Indo Rocker FLO while he attends to the daily operations of Indo Board.

You can start by standing on the IndoFLO for a few minutes out of every hour. Maybe try standing while you do a specific task like checking emails or on a conference call. The IndoFLO makes getting a workout in the office a snap! You will burn up to 120 extra calories an hour as well as improve your overall posture and realize increased productivity.

_______________________________

Keep it up! 

Achieving a goal is much easier if it’s a fun and engaging activity! It can seem almost effortless when all you have to do is continue to use the Indo Board Balance Trainer! Start off by riding the board 10 minutes a day and then increase it! Ride the Indo Board while you watch sports, your favorite show or playing the new Star Wars Battlefront. Practice makes perfect and riding the Indo Board daily will help you improve your overall core fitness and leg strength. Check out our youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/indoboard

Once you are able to keep the board from touching the ground, go to the next step! Add more difficulty. Grab some barbells or a kettle bell and do some lifts while on your board. Below are several examples of exercises you can do with weights on an Indo Board Balance Board. Also don’t forget to do pushups and planks for an excellent upper body workout!

Remember Life is all about Balance!
