Benefits of Slacklining

Slacklining can improve your balance, posture and concentration. Some people use this sport to clear their minds and relax from work. Your core strength will improve and you may feel more focussed and flexible.

Some sports and equipment aim to develop muscles through a repetitive onesided physical exercise. However this means that non-active muscles are liable to waste away. These non-active core muscles are very important in supporting our (back and stomach) musculature.

Some medical practitioners and professionals advocate slacklining, particularly for its ability to improve proprioception and co-ordination.

Proprioception:

The body´s own sense of its position in spaceThe sense of power between the muscles and fibres within the bodyAbility to sense and identify direction of movement

Proprioception training, builds up muscle to support the rest of the body. This means the body is less prone to common injuries, such as twisted ankles. The result of continuous slacklining is the strengthening of the spine, back and stomach-musculature and additional support for ankles, knees and hip joints. Slacklining can prevent the body from injury and/or rehabilitate.

To have good balance means…

Co-ordination and strength that increases the general state of health in every day movements and sports activites.Reduced risk of incorrect joint weightbearing, less joint problemsReduced risk to injury

O yeah, slacklining isn’t just fun it’s, crazy good for you too!
