Don’t ask your endocrinologist, but there are easy natural ways to increase your testosterone with your StrongBoard Balance, along with diet and sleep. Testosterone is a very important hormone for your health, as it is a big influencer of mood, libido, strength, and muscle size.
Of course, many things affect testosterone levels, but if you nail down these three areas, you’ll be 90% of the way there. Like we’ve mentioned in previous blogs on sleep and diet, these two factors are the biggest influence on your physical health, and it’s no different for testosterone.
Exercise will give you a temporary boost of testosterone, but where the long term gains are achieved through consistent strength training. This type of training, along with StrongBoard, is the best way to get stronger, and build muscle mass. StrongBoard will help you increase your balance, coordination, and core stability, while also helping to prevent injury.
These additional bonuses will prevent you from missing long periods of exercise due to injury, while also helping you get a more effective workout from the added stability training. The more muscle mass you have, the higher your testosterone levels.
An additional bonus of working out is staying in shape and avoiding obesity, which significantly decrease your testosterone levels.

The baseball season is now underway, and now is a great time to highlight how StrongBoard and baseball go together. Balance, coordination, and core stability are vital to success in baseball.
Balance affects fielding, hitting, and base running. Practice swinging the bat while on StrongBoard, and becoming as balanced as you can before swinging. The squat is a great exercise to do on StrongBoard to improve balance while fielding the ball, as players are moving toward the ball, then have to stop, find balance, and make an accurate throw to first base. You can also throw to a friend while on StrongBoard, trying to maintain balance and effectively move your energy in the right direction. For base running, try transferring all your energy from one leg to the other, as base stealers do when they begin taking off toward second base. Doing all these exercises will assist in strengthening your core.
Doing exercises which strength the core (which StrongBoard does constantly) will go a long way in core stabilization. Core muscles assist in spine stabilization, which supports better balance and improved overall performance. Trying to balance on StrongBoard will improve your coordination on the field, as it takes a greater effort to stay coordinated on StrongBoard.
