Bring Balance to Your Routine with the Squat

StrongBoard Balance Board Physical Therapy The Squat


Summer isn’t too far off, and for those wanting to get fit, the squat is an essential part of a workout routine. The squat is often overlooked or avoided. Perhaps not being able to walk up the stairs, or walk at all the next day is the reason why. However, there’s no denying the importance of the squat.

The reason squatting often is so beneficial is because it is a complex exercise, involving multiple major muscle groups, including the calves, quadriceps, and hamstrings. The more muscle you build in your legs, the more calories your body will burn at rest to maintain your muscles. The power of compound calorie burning is a great thing.

Squatting will not only cause you to be faster, stronger, and jump higher, it can even improve your bone density, according to a study. Bone density in the neck and spine was improved by 2.9% and 4.9%, and which was only during the course of the study! The great thing about squatting with StrongBoard Balance is muscle confusion can happen without having to do different exercises. Simply trying to balance while squatting will work your leg muscles in different ways.

While squatting can be a challenging exercise to do on StrongBoard, the squat is perhaps the best exercise for having great balance, as it requires your whole body to be in control. Don’t be shy and try some squats on your StrongBoard today. We promise you’ll start seeing benefits!
