Did you know that balance boards are amazing tools for building a stronger core?
When you engage with a Huku board to maintain balance, you instinctively activate your core stabiliser muscles, including:
Abdominals: The rectus abdominis, commonly known as the six-pack muscle, aids in stabilising internal organs. The transversus abdominis, positioned horizontally, acts like a corset, contributing to movement and spine stabilisation.
Obliques: Situated along the sides of your body, the internal and external obliques play crucial roles in protecting the spine and facilitating rotation.
Back: The quadratus lumborum, nestled deep in the lower back, extends from the lowest rib to the top of the pelvis. It's associated with issues such as back pain, posture, and mobility.
Pelvic floor: Housing vital organs and connective tissues like hamstrings and hip flexors, the pelvic floor impacts sexual health, hip stabilisation, urination, bowel movements, and more.
Spine: While technically back muscles, the erector spinae and multifidus muscles are connected to basic movements through the spine.
Glutes: This group of three muscles in your backside influences hip rotation and extension.
Diaphragm: Often linked to breathing, the diaphragm, located at the base of the chest, aids in digestion and blood transportation to the heart through its openings.
Maintaining a robust and healthy core is integral to overall well-being. A strong core not only provides stability to your spine, improving posture and reducing the risk of back pain, but it also enhances your body's ability to perform everyday movements. From supporting organ function to influencing hip rotation, a well-conditioned core is crucial for optimal health and functional fitness.
