With so much talent dependent on equilibrium while skateboarding, training with StrongBoard will help in proprioception (coordination of all body parts), so that everything is working in tandem to keep skaters on their boards. Since skateboarders use their entire body when skateboarding this is an ideal practice concept to keep all muscles in tune with one another, while also developing core strength. Balance boards also help boost reaction time; if you slip or start to falter, a balance-trained body will naturally kick into responsive action to prevent a fall. In reality, balance training is actually training for subconscious balance recovery: the human body can lose balance while skateboarding, and most other activities, very easily. StrongBoard offers positive benefits when implemented into any skateboarding training regimen.
