Two Quick Upper Body Workouts With The Indo FLO!

INDO BOARD UPPER BODY WORKOUTS

Here at the Indo Board Office, our office manager, Kelly, is also a certified personal trainer! When she has a few free minutes, she shows the staff a few quick exercises you can do with the Indo FLO. Who knew you could get an awesome upper body workout with an Indo Board? Kelly loves to use the Indo Board Balance Trainer in her workouts.

Today she showed us two quick and easy upper body exercises you could do with your Indo FLO.

She used the Mahogany Rocker FLO.

________________________________

The side plank reach over/under.

Place your palms on the Indo Board like you are about to a push up. Extend your legs out and find your center. Then rotate your hips from side to side. Do this 15 times. If you are a little more advanced, try balancing on one hand like in picture 2.

Try completing this exercise a few times a day in your free time!

______________________________________

Kelly also showed us how to use a resistance bar to help with an upper body workout on the Indo FLO.

 You can use a resistance bar, a regular weighted bar or some barbells and try to do 15 bicep curls. Try to not touch the ground while you are doing the bicep curls on the Indo FLO. Also try to look ahead and not down at the board so your head, shoulders and hips are in alignment.

You can easily do both exercises while watching TV or if you have your Indo FLO in your office. Both of these are quick and easy. You can fit in a short workout whenever you have a free minute!

The Indo FLO Balance Board can take your upper body workout to the next level!

Check back every week to see trainer tips, easy workouts and even a few advanced Indo Board workouts!

Have a Balanced Day!

Indo Board Balance Board…It’s a Family Affair!!

Indo Board Man had his family over to celebrate Christmas day. During the festivities, Indo Board Man was training the next generation in the ways of the Balance Board. The earlier the better to get started with learning to adapt to standing on an unstable balance board. You can see the two hand hold approach works best at this very early stage of balance training.

After a delicious dinner, Indo Board Man and his two year old grandson, also named Hunter, were showing off their balance board skills on the Indo Board Original Natural. This is also a great addition to your balance workout…add a 30 lb toddler and test your skills!

Indo Board Man has great hopes getting his grandson in the water surfing with him as he grows up. He dreams of Hunter following in his footsteps and able to become skillful at riding waves. There is no better way to start the process than introducing Hunter to the Indo Board!

 

We hope you are also able to make the Indo Board Balance Board a fun family activity!

Have a Balanced Day!

Brooke Shields Favorite Move That Changed Her Body

Super-model, actor, author, mom, and simply the all-around intelligent and amazing woman, Brooke Shields’ interview with Health.com shares her secrets – and it’s all about balance.

Do you have a favorite move that changed your body?

I’ve just started hanging upside down in inversion boots, doing hamstring pulls and sit-ups. I’m amazed at how great it feels on my back. I’ll just hang there and then start doing a whole series of crunches and things like that. It’s really hard, but it’s really great, and I notice a difference. And balance—I never put too much into balance because I danced, and it was fine, but now they have this balance board, you know the Indo Board?  And now I can do it. Six months ago, I couldn’t. And I thought to myself, “I’m so strong. Why?” And [my trainer] said, “Everything’s not firing. You’ve really got to just ignite and wake up certain little muscles…”

Read the entire Brooke Shields Interview Here.

Thank you, Brooke Shields, for your enthusiastic words. We are great fans of you and appreciate that you understand the value of balance training on the Indo Board.

The 12 Days of Indo Board – Day 10!

On the 11th Day of Christmas Indo Board Man is keeping it simple and showing our #1 best selling balance board, the

Original Natural Indo Board.

This is the board that started everything! 19 years ago Indo Board Man decided to pursue his dream and created the business Indo Board Balance Trainer. Here we are almost 20 years later and the Indo Original Natural is still the top seller.

Indo Board Man introducing the Original Indo Board.

The idea was an indoor surfing trainer and he coined the phrase “If you can’t go Outdo, gotta go Indo.” He originally marketed the Indo Board to help people who participated in board sports train in the comfort of their homes. Throughout the years the uses have expanded to include fitness training for virtually every sport there is, focusing on core strength and balance training. The benefits of using an Indo Board to train helps with injury prevention and in the case of injury then as a rehab tool.

The first video shows how to get started using the Indo Board

The second video highlights various balance board workouts you can do with the Indo Board.

The Indo Board has been used to train Olympic Athletes such as swimmer Aaron Piersol and Archer Jake Kaminsky.

Here is a video of Jake practicing on his Indo Balance Board before the 2012 Summer Olympics where the US Team won the Silver medal.

Winter Olympic Skier Si Ning Chan using the Indo Board at the US Olympic Training facility

While you train, you can have fun! Check out this video of  Eric Retterbush demonstrating various tricks you can do on your Indo Balance Board.

My favorite Indo Board trickster has to be Trinity Lewis. You have to see this video of the tricks he can do on his Indo Board!
