However, sometimes it’s not as much about using wedges and boards to work around lousy or restricted mobility as it is to avoid pain or discomfort as tissues lengthen out.

If your overall squat mobility isn’t where you want or need it to be, wedges and boards can help you train around the issue, but they certainly won’t fix the underlying cause. This phenomenon is also often taken advantage of in the world of physical rehabilitation (typically in later stages) when looking to rehabilitate various types of knee and quadriceps injuries, such as patellar tendinopathy and quadriceps tendinopathy. Benefit 3: Offloading painful tissues You should aim to have your shoulders directly in light with the barbell, which will result in a slight forward torso lean Whether you use a slant board to better engage your knees in a deep squat or simply to give your calves an extra stretch at the end of your run, slant boards are straightforward but effective tools that function as intuitively as they look. Surprisingly enough, however, some brands achieve far more than others, with boards like StrongTek’s Professional Slant Board outperforming some competitors at a near-identical price. So we’ve found you the boards that best take advantage of their inherent simplicity and will find a natural home in your gym routine. The Best Slant Boards


Under Hands: Supports deeper extension of spine as a step towards bringing hands down to ankles 25. Supported Bridge Pose The primary ways to use this are traditional calf raises, elevated heel squats, and to stretch the calves: As runners, we have loads of reasons to thank our legs. They carry us through every stride, whether they like it or not, and they experience thousands of impacts with the ground every time we lace up our trainers and tap out a jog. Ultimately, those impacts add up over time. And if you’re not taking time to strengthen key areas like your calves, ankles, and knees, you might end up with some underdeveloped mobility, which isn’t ideal if you’re a high-mileage runner. If avoiding injury is a goal of yours, try a slant board: a multi-use tool for your gym that can yield more targeted gains from your leg workouts.

Depending on one’s health of their knee joint(s) and their tendons (which cross over the joint), the additional muscle activation and subsequent force that runs through the knees can be irritating or even painful. This is because if you keep all of your training variables static (sets, reps, load, exercise selection, rest, tempo) then your body will fail to adapt to any new stimulus.The only notable difference to point out is that squat wedges refer to a pair of angled wedges (one for each foot), whereas a slant board is a single unit designed for both feet to be placed on the same surface (though you can, of course, still place a single foot on the board if you’d like).

Under Heels: Strengthens calves, quads, and stabilizers in legs and feet 9. Extended Crescent LungeC. B. Barrass and D. R. Derrett, Ship Stability for Masters and Mates 7th ed. (Boston, MA: Butterworth-Heinemann, 2012). In my experience, an angle of around twenty degrees is rather sufficient for improving squat depth without sacrificing balance or overloading the knees and quadriceps. There’s no harm in using more or less of an angle; you’ll just need to determine what’s best for your needs. Between Thighs : Activates inner thighs to support pelvis, hips, and lower spine and maintain alignment Squats of any type will place these affected tissues into a lengthened state, which can lead to discomfort or pain. If this pain or discomfort limits or prevents your ability to squat, using wedges or a board to avoid stretching the sensitive tissue(s) can often permit you to continue squatting by avoiding this issue in the process. Almost all slant boards come with some sort of sandpaper, rubber, or other gripping surface to help keep your feet in place, which is especially helpful if you’re maxing out an adjustable board’s angle and relying more on friction to stay standing. Not every tape is going to perform the same, though, with most cheap options offering little in terms of traction. On the other hand, some of the higher-quality grip tapes can also be incredibly abrasive. So perhaps avoid some of the coarsest ones if you’re hopping on one of these boards in your nice trainers right after a run.

To continue to drive new adaptations in strength, your body needs some form of variation with one or more training variables. Personally, I’d advocate that you use as little angle as required to produce the effects you’re after (perfect squat form, avoiding discomfort in your foot or calves, etc.). Think of it as the minimal effective dose required to achieve the effects you’re after. Pro tip:Slant boards are often adjustable, allowing for multiple angles based on your needs or preferences. This is one of the unique benefits they often hold over individual wedges. Under Temple: Allows head to release for more relaxation and support in twist 39. Revolved Crescent Another rather sweet benefit of squat wedges and slant boards is their ability to alter the demands of how aggressively certain muscle groups must work when squatting. More specifically, squatting with the heels elevated results in greater recruitment of muscle fibers from the quadriceps muscles, which can be used to the benefit of the lifter based on their needs or goals.Various orthopedic conditions in the lower body can lead to discomfort or pain when specific muscles or tendons are placed into a lengthened state (stretched out). Such conditions can include (but are not limited to): In addition to improving your squat form, squat wedges can provide wrist support when doing planks, push-ups, or yoga Why We Love Squats The good news here is that with wedges and certain boards, you can easily increase or decrease the angle by how much or little of your foot you place on the angled surface.
