Lindsay Vonn Olympic Balance Training Workout

With the start of the Winter Olympics tonight, lets check out this video of Lindsey Vonn’s workout routine she did to get ready for the 2018 Olympic season. I think you will see a familiar Balance Board. You will see in the video that Lindsey’s workout is very comprehensive working her entire body with a mixed bag of exercises with and without weights. Lindsay uses the Indo Board Balance Trainer for a fun hand-eye coordination drill.

Functional Movement Workouts Using the Indo Board Mini Kicktail

Indo Board - Life is About Balance

Using the Indo Board Mini Kicktail

The Mini Kicktail was designed for skateboarders who want to do BIG tricks, first and foremost,  but I bet you didn’t know the Mini Kicktail can also be used to help you get a great functional movement workout! Recently, Bob Guenther and Kim White learned first hand what you can do with the Mini Kicktail. The small size of the deck allows for some very interesting and challenging options when doing planks, pushups, split squats and so much more.

Indo Board Man, Hunter Joslin demonstrates exercises on the Mini Kicktail.

In the next video, Indo Board Man demonstrates a plank on the Mini Kicktail

Indo Board - Life is About Balance

Conner Brondes – Surf Expo

Indo Board has been exhibiting at the Surf Expo in Orlando ever since the company started in 1998. Every year we are floored with the Indo Board Balance Trainer enthusiasts who demonstrate their skills on our Indo Boards. This year Indo Board team rider Conner Brondes blew us away with his awesome riding skills and ability level. He has been riding an Indo Board since he was 8 years old when he received one for his birthday. Conner proudly professes to anyone who wants to know that the Indo Board changed his life forever. It turned him into a dedicated “Board Sports” enthusiast. He took up skateboarding, wakeboarding and wakesurfing all because of the Indo Board. Progress to now and Conner Brondes is a Professional Fly Boarder.  He dazzled the Surf Expo patrons with his Indo Board tricks, music and extremely friendly personality.

A post shared by Connor Brondes (@cbrondes10) on

Go follow Conner Brondes on Instagram to see more of his awesome pics! His fluid transitions from trick to trick, and rarely if ever touching the ground during his runs, separates Conner from everyone else!

In the Video, Conner is on the Pro Surf Classic while holding a ukulele as he keeps the board from touching the ground.

Then in this next video, Conner is hanging 10 on an Indo Original and playing his ukulele while another Indo Rider, Keaton Bennings, is riding the Indo Pro Surf Classic while solving a Rubik’s Cube.

Talk about an all around workout for your core and your brain!

The last video of Conner we took, he did a Popshuvit 180° on the Indo Original.

Indo Board Master Instructor Training with Bob Guenther & Kim White

Indo Board - Life is About Balance

Indo Board Master Instructor Training

A couple weeks ago, Bob Guenther and Kim White from Fit For You Gym in Traverse City, Michigan made the trip down to the Indo Board Balance Trainer HQ to train with Indo Board Man. They spent a couple days with Indo Board Man and were certified Master Instructors of Indo Board.

During their training, Indo Board Man, showed them several exercises to try out with their classes on various Indo Boards. In the video below, Master Instructor Indo Board Man is showing Bob how to use the Gigante cushion and Kicktail Pro to train for Stand Up Paddleboard. Indo Board Man is showing Bob how to simulate paddling on a SUP with the proper form which is top hand directly above the bottom hand.

 

In the next video, Indo Board man shows how he uses a kettle bell to add difficulty to doing a squat on an Indo Board Original Barefoot. The Indo Balance Board offers an interesting mental challenge to a normal squat. Then ad resistance in the form of a kettlebell and you really up the challenge both physically and mentally.

The Fit For You Gym gave them an awesome welcome home up returning to Michigan!

If you are in the Traverse City area, check out Fit For You‘s website to see when you can train with Bob and Kim with the Indo Board Balance Board Training System.!


 

Congrats to Bob and Kim for becoming Indo Board Certified Master Instructors!

Keep checking back for more videos from their training sessions!

Fit Friday! Indo Board Push-Ups

Fit Friday!

Today we will discuss the Indo Board Push Up! This is a great way to take a push up and add difficulty by adding instability. Now the push up can be done using either the roller or the Indo FLO cushion. Up on our You Tube Channel you can find several videos helping you accomplish the proper form and different levels of difficulty you can add to an Indo Board push up.

In the video below, trainer Chris shows you the basics to starting an Indo Board push up. He starts out with just the board on the ground and then shows you how to progress from the cushion to the roller in later videos in the series.

Another variation to the push up is the push up plank. Kristina shows you level by level how to start a push up plank with the Indo Board in the video below.


 

Next, you can see an example of doing push ups on the roller in this video by Hitkbfit.

Another variation of an Indo Board push up is shown in this video by Coach Robb Beams. He uses the Rocker and FLO cushion and places his feet on the board instead of his arms.

You can check out our You Tube channel for even more push up tutorials!

 
 

Indo Board Man Brings Out The Mega Indo Board

MEGA INDO BOARD!

This weekend, after the cold front in Florida finally subsided and the weather was nice again, Indo Board Man showed off the legendary, one of a kind, Mega Indo Board. This is a Balance Board on steroids! The Roller is 36 inches in diameter used with a custom made 10 foot plank. Good to get your Pirate on by walking the plank!! The Mega Indo Board is the ultimate Longboard Indo Board.  This is in Indo Board Man’s personal collection and is only brought out for special occasions.

Indo Board Man’s friend from Indianapolis, team rider and Indo Board Brand Ambassador Heather Thomas shot the video of the Indo Board Man showing off his awesome skills. This was happening while Heather’s, husband Will, stood by taking it all in because he was keen to try to ride it himself.

Indo Board Man demonstrates his ability to walk the full length of the giant board. Indo Board Man also shows his control and throws in some lunges at the top of the board. The roller itself weighs over a hundred pounds. It takes a lot of strength to get this giant roller to move.

In the next video, Will Baker decides to try his moves out on the Mega Indo Board

 As you can see from the video, it takes a running start for Will to get enough momentum to move the giant roller. This board only gets to come out for special guests who crave the rush of being in a precarious situation!.

The Mega Indo Board roller has a few other uses as well. You can have a person hanging out in the roller as someone rides to add even more difficulty or you can take the roller for a spin by anchoring yourself inside. It’s quite a ride!

While the Mega Indo Board is one of a kind, if you want to get better at walking the board and cross stepping, you should check out the Indo Pro.

This is the Surf Classic edition which the print is made to look like an Old School Longboard Surfboard

How Do You Indo Board?

Here at Indo Board Balance Trainer, we love our fans! And our fans take their love of riding the Indo Board Balance Board to the extreme! We love when our fans send us video or tag us on our instagram @indoboard! Let’s take a look at our awesome fans and some of the cool photos and videos that have been sent in to us over the last few weeks!

 

 

Team Rider Leo Oppenheim takes Indo Boarding to the extreme by counter balancing on his Indo Board Original on a brick ledge! Leo exhibits amazing skill and concentration while holding this difficult position! This is an advanced Indo Board maneuver and I definitely would not recommend trying this at home unless you have great skills and strength.

 

Leo also sent us a second shot of him and his friend Josh, Mark Rowe. Josh is on Leo’s shoulders! What an amazing feat!

 

 
 

Andrew Hopgood has some serious skill as shown by this video. He uses a skate deck on our roller. He juggles, shows off his fantastic balance and ends the video with a back flip!

 

 

Brian Twardus practices strengthening his core with the L-Sit and then throws a basket. He is an awesome trainer at @the_auburn_fit.

 

 
 

Waterski and Wakeboard pro Nikolas Plytas uses not one but two Indo Boards on top of each other and shows his riding skills!

 

And I can’t not show off one of our favorite young riders, Trinity Lewis. This kid has crazy balance and loves filing all the tricks he has mastered on his Indo Board.

The 2018 Winter Olympic Athletes Secret Weapon – Part 1

The 2018 Winter Olympics are just around the corner. Several winter Olympians, including Lindsey Vonn, use the Indo Board as part of their training regimen. The US Olympic Snowboard Team uses the Indo Board as a warmup tool before competing.

Lindsey has consistently used the Indo Balance Board since her formative training with the Vail Ski and Snowboard Club as a kid. More recently she has used it to help her rehab from severe injuries which lead to her primary training to get her back Indo competitive form.

In this post, Lindsey Vonn is working on core strength as well as her upper body to rehab her injured arm. Try playing catch while on the Indo Board and see how adding in an extra movement boosts your workout while having fun!

Balance is getting better. #progress #ankleproblems

The Indo Balance Board helps dramatically strengthen weak or injured ankles and knees. Sprained ankles are a leading injury among skiers and snowboarders. Doing some relatively easy ankle strengthening exercises using the Indo Board Balance Trainer can help you prevent injuries.

 Lindsey is using the Indo Board Mini Pro in this photo. The Mini Pro was developed working with professional wakeboarders and snowboarders who wanted a fun indoor training activity. The broad reach and importance the Indo Board Balance Trainer has for balance training across all board orientated sports and all sports activity is the perfect fit.

Ski Magazine even recorded a bit of her Balance Training workout. You can check it out here.
