If your idea of exercise has only centered around either constantly going to the gym or going running, then chances are that you are most likely very bored with your current workout routine, and you end up having to drag yourself to exercise every single day. This tends to happen with most people, and this is why it is important to keep switching up one’s exercise routine, and even transitioning to another means of exercising, and one of these happen to include slide boarding.
Slide boarding is a new and innovative means of exercising that has been introduced to the public only recently. It was initially just used by winter sports athletes, but it is now being seen as a dynamic way of exercising.
A slide board is essentially a rectangular board that is kept on a flat surface. It has a very smooth and slick surface along with two bumpers on each respective end of the board. There are also special booties that you need to wear on top of your normal shoes in order to reduce friction and make the board more slippery and easy to move in for you.
The entire exercise consists of your gliding from one bumper to another using just your legs. Think of it like skating, but from one fixed point to another. This act of gliding from one bumper to the other will help you really tone your lower body and see some serious results over time. Now, it is strongly advised that you have an expert watch over you while you are using the board, especially in the beginning because there is a risk of you slipping and potentially hurting yourself if your form is not correct, so having an expert watch over and help you perfect your form will help you reap some serious benefits later on.
