We developed a balance board to attend every gap of ages, from children to adults so it is an sports equipment that can be used from beginners to more experienced practitioners.
During your first impressions with the board, we suggest you to search for something to hold on to for support (like another person ou a wall)
It`s important to maintain your knees bent and not lean over the base used as support, seeking to balance the weight of the body on the legs and the center of the board, keeping column and shoulders erect.
When using the equipment for children, we recommend using wrist cuffs and elbows until it feels safe with the board.
Make sure that the surface of the board is dry in order not to impair the adhesion with the sole of the shoes worn by the user.
What should I wear during the training?
It is possible to train with your VIBEBOARD either barefoot or with some footwear. Most surfers prefer to use it barefoot, just like surfing. On the other hand, skaters usually prefer their use with some footwear, also by reference to the sport of origin.
If you use VIBEBOARD in gyms, pilates studio, etc., we recommend using a low-heeled sneaker, which allows a greater contact of the feet with the base of the board.
Learn some basic initial movements with your VIBEBOARD:
Start Move (master the balance over your VIBEBOARD)
The most basic exercise is performed with the roller (PIPE) centered under the board, slowly sliding it from side to side until it touches the safety locks.
Balance yourself on the board with your legs slightly wider than your shoulder width, keeping your arms perpendicular to the body, knees slightly bent, hip slightly bent forward, head and spine upright.
The purpose of this exercise is to try to keep the roll (PIPE) under control, that is, balanced in the center of VIBEBOARD.
Do not worry if your legs move a bit making the board lean slightly. This is normal until you achieve a good control over the board
Position yourself on the board with your feet and shoulders aligned in the same direction, tilt the pelvis and bring your hips back in squatting motion.
Keep getting lower until your legs form a 90-degree angle, bending your knees and trying not to let them outstrip your feet on the way down.
Assume a horizontal position with your elbows slightly off the edge of the board.
With your shoulders resting on your elbows, keep your palms facing inward, upright spine, legs, head, neck and hip in alignment.
Hold the position as long as possible.
The VIBEBOARD fits perfectly into any integrated training program.
You can perform leg movements like squats and contortions. There are several training programs that can use the VIBEBOARD alone or with another asset, just open your mind and try it out.
Other possibilities are to use it with the upper body, by doing push-ups, hip suspensions on the floor, training with stability balls, mini bands, medicine balls, ropes, training with pulleys, etc.
In all of these integrated workouts the intensity of muscle work becomes extremely enhanced, as the VIBEBOARD requires strength, endurance and balance.
