    Balance Guide

    Iron Cross Squat On A Vew-Do Balance Board

     

    Muscle Worked: Shoulders, Quadriceps, Chest, Glutes, Hamstrings, Lower Back and Traps

    Tip: Don't start with your normal weight. When adding a balance board to any exercise it's best to begin with less weight and work your way up.

    Breath: Everybody forgets to breath when doing these. Inhale as you squat down, exhale as you push back up.

    1. Start with your feet shoulder width apart comfortably on the board. Hold a dumbbell in each hand.
    2. With your palms facing forward, extend your arms away from your body till arms and torso form the letter "T". This will be the start position.
    3. Once you have adjusted to standing on the balance board, squat down slowly by bending at the knees and keeping your back straight like you are going to sit on a chair. Simultaneously bring your arms in front of you until your palms are facing each other and the dumbbells just about touch.
    4. Hold this position briefly. Adjust your balance and move on to step 5. You will wobble a little; this is not an easy exercise.
    5. To stand back up, slowly start by pushing on the balls of your feet and work your way up while simultaneously moving your arms out away from your body to again form a letter "T".
    6. Repeat!

    Customer Review for Ubalance

    I've been using my vew do flow board everyday since it arrived. Ubalance was the cheapest I could find after loads of researching for the best boards and uk stockists. Mark was very helpful and it arrived quickly. There's loads more exercises than I thought, including press ups, squats and side to side plank. I would highly recommend these boards and Ubalance.
