Balance Boards: Norst's Simplified Guide for Every Skill Level

Norst's Balance Guide: Beginner to Advanced Board Moves for Every Skill Level

Balance isn't just about standing on one foot without toppling over. It's a skill, a physical art, and a metaphor for a well-rounded life. Norst has carefully curated a guide for those beginning their balance journey, those a tad more experienced, and the daring advanced balancers. No matter where you stand (or balance) in your fitness journey, there's a challenge awaiting you.


Beginner Moves: First Steps to Finding Balance

  1. Introduction to Balance: Stand on the board for 1 minute. Keep your focus steady.
  2. Shift & Balance: Shift weight from left to right foot for 1 minute.
  3. Eyes Open, Mind Present: Stand on the board, feeling its motion for 2 minutes.
  4. Balancing Lunge: Place one foot on the board and lunge forward, alternating each leg.
  5. Simple Squats: Do 5 squats while maintaining balance.

Tips for Beginners:

  • Always start slow.
  • Hold onto something stable if you're feeling wobbly.

Intermediate Moves: Taking Your Balance Up a Notch

  1. Eyes Closed Balance: Stand on the board with your eyes closed for 30 seconds.
  2. Dynamic Plank: Plank with hands on board, rotating it left and right for 10 reps.
  3. Jump & Land: Jump off the board and land back on it, repeating 5 times.
  4. Single Leg Balance: Stand on one foot for 30 seconds on each side.
  5. Clock Balance: Shift your weight as if moving around the hours of a clock.

Tips for Intermediate Balancers:

  • Engage your core at all times for added stability.
  • Remember to breathe; it helps with balance.

Advanced Moves: For the Balance Daredevils

  1. Board Flips: Flip the board and try to land back on it, experimenting with different flip degrees.
  2. Eyes Closed Dynamic Squats: With eyes closed, perform 10 squats.
  3. Burpees with Board: Incorporate the board into a 10-rep burpee sequence.
  4. Yoga on Board: Attempt poses like Tree Pose or Warrior III on the balance board.
  5. Free Flow Balance: Freestyle on the board, crafting your unique sequence.

Tips for Advanced Enthusiasts:

  • Challenge is growth. If it feels too easy, you're not pushing hard enough.
  • Safety first! Ensure you have a clear space to practice.

Conclusion: No matter where you are on your balance journey, the key is consistent practice and challenging yourself to new heights. Start slow, master the basics, and soon enough, you'll be flipping that board and defying gravity. Embrace the art of balance with Norst and share your progress using #NorstBalanceChallenge!
