HOW TO USE A MOBO BOARD

I don’t recommend many ‘gadgets’ (it’s an absolute no from me to posture braces, ergonomic chairs or lumbar support) but I really love my Mobo Board.

In my opinion there is nothing like it for waking up the feet, calves and glutes. My legs are on FIRE almost straight away … and I do all sorts of weird balancing poses everyday.

I think it’s because the rocking motion provided by the Mobo Board is quite hard to imitate with anything other than a specially made product designed with foot pronation/supination in mind.

Whilst there are lots of different ways you can use your Mobo Board (check out the www.moboboard.com website for more information on potential ways to use your board), I have made the video below to show you what I tend to do as often as I can. It’s really brilliant because I can do this when I am doing my emails at my standing desk too.

P.S  This video is demonstrating one of the ways in which I strengthen my feet, legs and glutes, these exercises might not make you, an individual body with your own issues, feel better. Please give the video a go but know that 1-2-1 Therapy might identify 5 other things in your individual posture that needs to be sorted out BEFORE you can start to tackle your foot mobility!

The Mobo Board has a hole for your 4 smaller toes to relax into - this prevents them from clawing and forces the big toe joint to stabilise instead.

I hope you find the exercises in the video useful and I apologise for how bad I am after a few weeks off Mobo Boarding!

Please do not push through any ‘bad’ signs of pain or tension. Pushing through pain never gets you out of pain.
