I have been using the Si Board for almost a year now and it has helped my up my game as an Athlete. It exposed some holes I had in my balance and some of my stabilizer muscles. Since using the board my balance and core strength have increased significantly as well as my lifts such as front squat, back squat and deadlift. The Si board is something that I use every training session in some fashion because it is so versatile you can make even the simplest movements challenging.

Why You Need Si Boards Balance Boards For Your Dynamic Balance Training

We are breaking the rules of traditional balance training exercises. Bigger and better size ranges, variety of solid balls and completely progressive.

Sport Specific Movements - Safely Train The Way You Play:
Each sport has specific movements with the common thread of multi-plane, multi-joint coordination and multi-direction movements. Whether riding on a balance board for surf training or powering off the ground in football, your body uses complex patterns. Si Boards trains you in sport specific positions functional training.
Multi-Joint and Multi-Plane Exercises- Move Your Body In All Directions:
Our legs, trunk and arms are designed to move in 360 o degrees of circular movement. Shoulders and hips are a ball and socket joint with infinite positions. To properly train you need a balance board that does not restrict motion to one dimension. You need dynamic stability exercises that move in all directions for true functional training exercises.
Injury Prevention Exercises - Stay In The Game:
Studies show you are 4 times more likely to get injured during competition. This can be from fatigued muscles during non-contact injuries or from an opponent overpowering you. Train your muscular endurance, stand tall and compete well into overtime. Si Boards balance boards helps with injury prevention exercises by increasing your endurance training, dynamic balance, postural sway, muscular endurance, coordination and body mechanics.
Injury Rehabilitation Exercises - Quickly and Efficiently Recover From Injury:
The effects of injury are magnified in the body when you have swelling, movement dysfunction, torn ligaments, tendons and muscles. Sometimes your nerves and muscles forget how to work together. Get off the injured list and avoid long term problems that may hinder your performance. Injury rehabilitation training for the elderly, athletes and daily living should include balance training exercises.
Exercises To Train Your Stabilizer Muscles:
Standing on an unstable surface requires more muscle activation to keep your posture upright. The same is true for seated, push-ups, dips, stomach and back positions. We need small stabilizers to kick in and help the large powerful muscles, especially during times of fatigue or long endurance activities. Si Boards gets all muscles firing to full capacity because you are on a dynamic balance board and moving surface.
Dynamic Warm-Up For Athletes - Wake Up Your Entire Body:
A dynamic warm-up is essential for great sport performance and functional training exercises. Increase the blood flow, muscle activation and nerve response in your body before heading out on your regular sport board or the field. Quickly feel how alert and activated your body feels after a few minutes of Si Boarding because of the dynamic stability exercises. A set of squats, dips, push-ups and bridges on a balance board is easy and will start your session with the confidence of a champion.
Exercises to Increase Your Focus - Make The Hard Stuff Look Easy:
Completely focus on key moves in a safe and controlled setting without the distraction of opponents and the environment. Complete ten reps in record time. If you fall off all you have to do is get back up and get back on the board. No need to paddle out again, ride the ski lift or run up the ramp. Balance training exercises force you to increase your focus because your body wants to stay upright with posture stability and control.
Exercises To Improve Posture Stability And Core Strengh:
Postural stability is your ability to maintain upright balance when opposing forces try to knock you down. It is also a key component of stabilizing your trunk and pelvis for simple activity such as walking, reaching into a cabinet and getting up out of a chair. Balance training to improve your core stability and posture is a must for daily living activity for all populations.
Fall Prevention Exercises - Aging With Strength And Coordination:
The CDC notes that 1 in 3 adults age 65 and older fall each year. Falling can result in serious injury including fracture, brain injury and death. The fear of falling also causes older adults to limit their activity and physical fitness. From toddlers in diapers to grandparents with canes we all need to stay active. Dynamic balance training exercises are great for the elderly, kids and athletes.
