Here are two more exercises in our Coolboard workout series. In total we will be bringing you eleven exercises to practise on your Coolboard to give you a good all body routine.
If you haven't got your Coolboard yet then head over to www.coolboard.co.uk to check out the options. Exercises have been devised by Adam Powell of Powell Fitness.
Place the Coolboard on the floor without the ball beneath it.
Standing on top of the Coolboard jump back and down into a press up position with your hands on the grip tape section of the Coolboard and feet behind you on the floor. From this position stand up with your arms to the ceiling and aim to get your feet onto the Coolboard.
As with previous exercises precision and technique is important. Aim to repeat for maximum of 20 reps and 3 sets or look to do as many as you can for a set period of time e.g. 60 seconds.
As soon as your feet land on the Coolboard instead of standing up you jump up high as you can, land into squat then repeat the burpees action.
Coolboard Foot Tap Squats
Place the Coolboard on the floor without the ball underneath.
Take the ball in your hands do a squat and twist the ball down towards one foot. Touch the ball down onto one foot or as far as you can go with good form and technique. Ensure you don’t let your knees twist to allow you to touch the ball to your foot. Return to the start position then repeat on the other side.
You might find one side easier than the other but that is common and will improve with practice. Aim to do a maximum of 20 reps and 3 sets.
You can do this with the ball under the CoolBoard. Rather than holding the ball in your hands just keep your hands together and slowly repeat the action. It will be alot harder to get all the way down and touch your feet so go as far as you feel comfortable.
