Training Tips

Start Position
Start with your feet at hip width with a powerband mini above the knees and one above the ankles. Your knees are bent and your feet are facing forwards.

Performing the exercise
Jump forwards to one side with a "skating movement" and rest briefly on one foot. Repeat the movement with the other foot, again resting briefly on the forward foot.

Coaching Key
You can also perform the exercise by "skating" swiftly without resting briefly on each foot.

 

Before you start your training: Look before you leap! Performing an exercise cleanly and correctly is vital to its effectiveness. Therefore, it is better to do fewer repetitions correctly than lots of fast and uncontrolled reps. Assess yourself and choose your level! We have designed every exercise for beginners, advanced users, and professionals; additionally, the three short powerbands are custom made for your specific level. Build up slowly! If you want to increase the intensity of your output, select the next higher powerband or increase the number of reps. Hold the powerband MAX with a tighter or shorter grip to increase resistance. Remember to take breaks! Catch your breath after every exercise and remember to hydrate during your training sessions.
