    Vew-Do 30 Day Balance Board Plank Challenge

    Vew-Do 30 Day Balance Board Plank Challenge

    Looking for a fun core work out to try on your new Vew-Do Balance board? Take up our 30 Day Balance Board Plank Challenge and use just your bodyweight and balance board to tone up and push your core muscles to the max.

    Most fitness experts will agree that holding a plank for over 120 seconds straight doesn't do any good. This is why some of the routines that have you hold for 300 seconds or more are tests of will and less about fitness. Repeated shorter isometric holds provide better quality muscular contractions, better form, and you just get more out of it. You'll be seeing some impressive results in just 30 days if you add the workout plan below to your workout routine.

    Board Used: LoveYourBrain x Vew-Do Rehab System - The cork mat and foam teeter make for a very comfortable workout. You can use any of the other boards in the line, the Pickle and Butter NUB work well for high planks, but you may need to put a towel over the grip if you are using a low plank.

    Before you start, test yourself and see how long you can hold a plank with good form on the balance board.

    Tip: You can do the exercise below in a plank (arms extended like a push up) or low plank (elbows bent as shown above). For a fun variation to challenge your stability, try lifting one leg off the ground. Be sure to keep good form and alternate legs when needed.

    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.
