[Dollarama] Ultimate Plank Balance Board - $4

Saw one of these at Dollarama and figured for $4 I couldn't go wrong. I know that Dollarama stock can be hit or miss but based on the previous threads it looks like there will be a small number spread across multiple locations.

Pretty solid / sturdy so far. If anything the kids will have fun with it.

Yep thanks. Basically just a smaller bosu ball? Is it inflated with air?

Devices like these improve balance and workout secondary muscles of a lift. This is good for athleticism, and for improving a core lift. However, it cannot be done instead of traditional, big lifts. Rather, it is to be done at the end of the exercise, to help you engage smaller stabilizer muscles. Consequently, lower weights can be used with higher volume (i.e., more reps or time).

I hope that helps. Overall, I think it's a useful device if you know it's place.

To balance out the Lindt deals and weekly Dominos deals.

It's all rubber/plastic - not inflated with air or anything. No idea what is inside it but it's completely solid and doesn't squish.

My thought is yes, like a smaller Bosu ball. Has the handles on the side to make it a bit easier I find than the bosu where you grip the edge.

$4? Wicked if you can find one. The higher-end versions of these arw gym staples. Excellent for bodyweight exercises like pushups and squats as they force your stabilizer muscles to work in order to keep your balance. Hockey players, for example, use them alot. If you come across one, shell out the 4 bucks and try out a set of close-grip pushups.

I have a similar one that I use at home, I just use it while cleaning my teeth just doing single leg balancing, it actually feels like a better calf work out than doing 300lb/leg on a calf raise machine. I only do it to work on balance though

I bought this 2 weeks ago and its holding up. Its plastic with rubber in the middle so it will not scratch the floor.

I bought 2 earlier this week, very good for snowboarding/skiing. Use with weights and I jump back & forth during a workout, can't beat the balance training of these at that price....
