The Air8 cushion is robust and filigree at the same time. Robust, because you can sit on it, stand, bounce, kneel, balance, no problem, it is very hard-wearing. Filigree, because thanks to the air filling your body gets during the training a subtle echo-like feedback to its position and exercise quality.

That's what Air8 brings you

  • more muscle stimulation due to the "wobbly" material structure

  • Protection and support for the chest, pelvis, spine, knees and joints

  • intensive strengthening of the deep abdominal muscles

  • special exercises for back health

  • Improvement of the sense of balance and body awareness

  • sensitive pelvic floor training

Selection of exercises with Air8

It's not always about the number of repetitions, increasing the weights or the length of the exercise duration. The decisive factor is the
quality of the movement.

The 
Special

The mixture of a gentle hold
and challenging instability

Fitness_Balance auf Air8_freigestellt.png

Filled with air, the cushion yields slightly - depending on the exercise position. So the body has to constantly balance even the smallest movements. This activates the entire body muscles and ensures particularly intensive training.

Special exercises for the abdominal and core muscles help optimize posture and prevent back pain.

In addition, the stable-unstable Air-cushion strengthens body awareness and improves body balance.

Possible uses for training at home
or in the gym

Core Training

The well-known abdominal exercise from fitness and Pilates rethought. The pelvis has space in the hollow of the pillow, the sacrum is supported from behind, pelvic tilting is reduced. Torso can be stretched out better and kept straight. The unstable surface requires extra muscle strength and ensures perfect core training. Many exercise variants are possible from this position: with upright or raised legs, up and down movements of the open torso, side rotations of the chest, etc.

Sit-ups protected

With the Air8-cushion under the chest, sit-ups can be trained in a way that is easy on the back. The spine has space in the pillow recess. Only minimal abdominal pulses are necessary, just a few centimeters, which train the abdominal muscles in length; and NEVER the extreme pumping movements that cause shortening and long-term damage.

Active support in supine position

When doing exercises with raised legs, the back is often rounded and too much and incorrect tension is built up in the abdomen. This can damage intervertebral discs. This incorrect posture is minimized with Air8 under the chest. The torso is supported in the right places and remains long, but the muscles must remain active at all times due to the instability. This is what the term active support means.

Back stretch

After an abs workout, stretching is extremely good. Underlaid in the lumbar spine area, Air8 can intensify the stretching, similar to yoga bikes or fitness balls, but much more back-friendly because the space for the spine remains free.

Active support in the prone position

Air8-cushion under the rib cage in the prone position stretches and strengthens the entire abdominal and core muscles, as well as the groin and hip flexors. The arms can be raised for an even more intensive training of the back muscles.

For a firm bottom: bend one leg and lift it off the floor, then push your heel a few centimeters up and down. Switch leg.

Lower abdomen workout

During exercises with raised legs,
the Air8-cushion helps to support and stabilize the pelvis, while increasing the intensity of the exercise. The buttocks balance on the two air cushions, the sacrum has free space in the pillow recess. Different exercise variants are possible from this basic position: e.g. lifting and lowering legs, stretching and bending, at the same time or one after the other, etc.

Air8 - Spirit level

An excellent exercise for pelvic inclination and for harmonizing tense pelvic structures. When placed on the soles of the feet, the Air8, similar to a spirit level, gives filigree feedback on the position of the feet and the halves of the pelvis. The goal of the exercise is to consciously relax all pelvic structures - muscles, tendons, bones and joints - while the feet balance the pillow. The exercise looks easy, but it is very demanding. The legs can quickly begin to tremble, which is a good sign that the deep muscles under the large muscle layers are activated. At the same time, the abdominal muscles are trained and shortened hamstrings are stretched.

Active support when lying on your side

When lying on the side, the
Air8-cushion supports and guides the flanks and enables a stretched, stretched back axis. All exercises lying on your side can be trained in this way. Advanced users can raise their arms for even more challenge.

Floor cushions

When doing exercises while sitting with your legs apart, the Air8 cushion helps to train the feeling for pelvic symmetry in order to avoid one-sidedness or inclination. The air cushion increases the perception of the ischial tuberosity and enables effective pelvic floor training. In addition, the higher-seated pelvis stretches the leg muscles and hamstrings.

In the cross-legged position, various rotations and stretches of the thoracic vertebral column can be performed for gentle and at the same time intensive back training.

the support cushion

The hollow of the air cushion keeps the leg axis stable and protects and supports the respective body part, regardless of whether it is the knee, calf, ankle or back of the foot. Kneeling exercises such as groin or psoas stretching are easier and injuries are prevented.

body-balance-cushion

The sturdy pillow can easily bear the weight of an adult. Standing, rocking, or even jumping is possible on the Air8. The unstable surface provides more intensity and trains the sense of balance. Two pillows placed inside each other offer a support for both feet, for example when doing squats.
