Let us start with the fundamentals of riding the wave board. The board has a unique design, it only has two wheels. This is the foundation of why the wave board provides such a great workout. In order to propel the board you must move your core body in an “S” shape, your legs move side to side and the board starts moving. Your feet never need to touch the ground, so the movement and workout is continuous. It is in these riding features you find your core and cardio workouts. The “S” shape movement of your core works out your abs, obloquies, and just about every muscle in your legs. The board has gravitational resistance from the ground which causes you to have to keep doing these movements in order to propel yourself and keep the workout going. Ride for just five minutes and you will start feeling it in your legs and abs. In order to maximize the workout potential you need to make your movements large and deliberate.

Many casual and sport riders coast and cruise a lot, but in order the get a good workout it is important that you make the most of every movement when riding. The cardio workout will come from continuous movement and riding for longer periods of time. As your heart rate increases the workout you get in your core and legs is going to be at its fullest. After you feel comfortable getting a workout on the wave board try taking your workout to the next level by riding the board up hills. Start on small gradual hills and move up to steeper hills the more comfortable you get and the more advanced moves you can do. You can also add weight resistance with ankle weights to increase the difficulty of the workout. The wave board gives opportunity for an exciting and fun new workout. Use the wave board for part of your workout routine and you will exercise with a smile on your face, and help gain the abs, legs and body you desire. So keep your movements deliberate and large, ride on gradual inclines, have fun and enjoy your core and cardio workout with the wave board.
Remember to always ride safe. It is recommended to wear quality athletic shoes, a helmet, and other protective pads when riding the wave board.
