GABO Board: Getting Started
How To Find The Right Setting
When you first get your GABO Board you will want to find a stability setting that works for you. This will be different for everybody and will depend on your current fitness level and goals.
1) The best way to do this is to fill up the Stability Ring to the maximum setting. You want the Stability Ring to be firm, but be careful not to over do it. Once filled, place the Stability
Ring on the floor and put the GABO Board's pivot in the center.
2) Try out the exercises you want to include in your workout. If you are a beginner you can simply stand on the board to test it out. Try to get a feel for it. You should be able to complete 10-15 reps of the selected exercise without the edge of the board touching the ground
3) If you feel that it is too easy, take some air out of the Stability Ring. More air makes it Easier. Less air makes it Harder.
4) Repeat this process until you find the perfect setting
How To Use GABO Board In Your Workout
Nobody would start their first day in the gym by lifting the heaviest weight they can find. You would start off with a lower weight that lets you actually workout. After a year of working out, however, you don't want to keep using that same low weight. The goal is to get stronger and stronger by increasing the weight little by little.
This is the same idea with the GABO Board. As your balance and strength improve, you want to increase how difficult it is to balance. You can do this by taking a little air out of the Stability Ring every week or so. Before you know it, you'll be able to use the GABO Board without the Stability Ring.
The Stability Ring isn't just for beginners starting out, though. Even advanced people can get a lot of use out of it. When starting the harder exercises, you can use the same process described above. Make the exercise easier with the Stability Ring and make it harder and harder over time.
This is the fastest and safest way to approach fitness and is sure to get you great results.
