Amateurs might be unaware of the concept of Instability Resistance Training and the major benefits it has for the body – from improving balance, preventing joint injuries and increasing core activation. Not Elyse Knowles though, she’s all about getting dem gains. Need proof? Check out her latest at-home workout video on Insta, featuring her skateboard and some serious stamina.

“Summer favourite toy, for a summer bod,” she captioned the clip, which shows her doing a series of burpees, lunges, push-ups, hip bridges and ab roll-outs.

“I blogged about this a few years ago … but the board is back baby!” she added via her blog. “Why? Because it’s easy to use, easy to store, inexpensive to purchase/maintain and it’s FUN.”

“My core is hugely benefiting with these skateboard workouts because to stop the board from rolling away, my tummy muscles have to be switched on at all times,” she said. “Trust me, never disengage your belly unless you want a few bruises & scratches!”

100 per cent commitment to the cause is key here.

“Despite the workout allowing you to get your fitness fix at home, you really need to commit yourself 100% & try your best not to cheat by not completing all the reps, or stopping after 10 instead of 15 or 20,” she explained. “It will burn, but that burn is PROOF you are working your body well! Put some music on & you’ll be fine … exercise is about mind over matter!

Btw, mixing up your regular routine like this could lead to quicker results.

“Even if you’re loving your current weekly workout regime, maybe try and throw this into the mix just to test different areas of your body. It’s crazy how quick our bodies get used to the same daily workout, so keeping them guessing is really beneficial,” Elyse continued. “After living in Melbourne for so many years and spending quite a lot of time in different gyms, the move to Byron has encouraged me to workout outside in the open air a lot more. Cardio sessions are big dog walks on the beach once of twice a day, challenging stair runs/climbs at the lighthouse, boxing outside, surf sessions, riding everywhere & creating tough workouts at home.”

Needless to say, Instagram were ALL over this idea – the post has been liked more than 24k times in just a few days.  

“Holy moly GO GIRL,” one fan wrote. “Who needs to take exercise equipment away on holidays ????????,” another weighed in.
