Add Inertia Waves to Your HIIT Training for Extended Calorie Burn. This is an advanced exercise and should be performed on a stable surface prior to using StrongBoard Balance board. Exercises conducted with the INERTIA WAVE in use (oscillated) mimic a spring like fluid movement are designed to elevate the heart rate, and work the entire body cognitively and overall engagement.
- Start off by grabbing each end of the two inertia wave tubes, pulling them away from anchors to create some resistance.
- Step onto the StrongBoard platform with your feet up against the platform handles. Because of the resistance pulling you forward, you can place your feet back about two inches from normal stance. This will help counter the pull of the inertia wave.
- Keep the body in a controlled, but fluid stance. The body has a flexed ankle, knee, and hip employed during the Inertia Wave method. Hold the end caps of the tubes securely and start to spring the length of both tubes simultaneously as if you are shaking water off of their hands. The center of the tubes can hit the ground upon proper performance. The method of Inertia Wave is an oscillating, spring-like up and down continuous pattern. The momentum of the tube acts like a coil/recoil from the center of the tube as it springs up and down.
- Repeat for desired amount of repetitions/sets.
Tips: Keep the spine erect and abs braced. For more of a challenge, you can squat during the Inertia Wave (as shown). You can also go for longer bouts before rest.
