Kiefer’s Core Board brings new variety to training in an alien looking shape that is fueled by functionality.

Kiefer, core boardVeering away from the traditional tombstone design the Core Board has a wider base providing much needed relief from shoulder pressure while engaging core muscles. The narrow design of a standard board compresses the shoulders and creates strain in the upper back and neck. The Core Board helps to correct alignment by bringing your arms beneath the surface and pulling in your core to stabilize position.

Flip this board vertical and you have one vicious training tool. The expanded base and center hole make this board perfect for resistance kicking. The deeper you hold the board under, the harder it gets. Amp up the challenge by adding fins.

The core board also doubles as a dryland mat to prevent deck burn on your knees, elbows, and back. It can even be used as a water bottle holder during a long kick set!
