The Reverse Sliding Lunge
This exercise is easiest on UltraSlide models that include side bumpers. To begin, stand up straight at one end of the slideboard with your toes up against the side bumper while you’re wearing your slide slippers. Keeping one leg still and against the bumper, you’ll begin to slide the other leg backward, keeping your heel lifted. Be sure to squeeze your glutes to engage your muscles. Distributing your weight between both feet, you’ll bend your front knee as you slide backward, working your hamstrings, quads, and inner and outer thighs.
Coming back up, you’ll want to squeeze your glutes to assist your back leg in sliding back toward the front leg, eventually aligning the two again. The whole time, you want to make sure you have your abs engaged as well as your shoulders back for the best form.
There are many other exercises that the UltraSlide is an excellent tool, which is why training facilities all over the country make use of our simple and durable design. You can incorporate lateral exercises, modified pushups, skating exercises, and so much more!
