Instability training helps younger students build smaller, fast-twitch muscles, and core strength. Balance discs create a simple way to add instability to any exercise routine, and can be adjusted to moderate the level of difficulty for students.
Add or remove as much air as you need to tailor a balance workout for students that’s befitting to their skill levels. The more air added, the less stability there is, requiring students to better balance themselves and stabilize their form. The more air taken out, the less air there is to move, which keeps students more grounded. Air can quickly be added or removed with a simple hand pump.
Based on the level of air pumped into the balance disc, students can exercise a range of movements atop it to help tone and hone muscles. Dumbbells offer a great arm workout while the core works to stabilize students. Or, choose medicine balls for slams that require students to coordinate their balance through longer, more forceful movements.
Measuring 13”, this balance disc is ideal for younger students because it provides them with enough room to truly gain a foothold, yet offers enough surface area to fluctuate when air is added or removed. Older students can also utilize these smaller discs for one-legged exercises, such as lunges.
- Laminated activity guide shows 6 stability disk movements to use with beginner students. No research is required to provide thorough instruction to your students! Exercises focus on strength and body awareness, as well as coordination.
- Used to develop balance and coordination, as well as core strength in users, which are key elements to everyday movements of people of all ages. Whether they’re competing in athletics, taking a hike in the woods, or performing everyday activities, a strong core is the foundation for movement. Helping to develop good balance and coordination from an early age sets the stage for students to be successful in a wide variety of future activities.
- Air shifts back and forth within the disc as user moves on it, creating the need for the user to engage core and stabilizer muscles to stay balanced and centered through movement.
- Add or release air to adjust stability, making it customizable for each user. Less air makes the disc more stable, as less air moves around; more air makes the disc more unstable, as there is more air to shift.
