Fitter hip slide

STRENGTH

About this Exercise:

  • KEEP YOUR HEAD UP! Move at slow to moderate speeds.
  • This exercise is designed for kinetic chain stability, NOT absolute strength or power.

Preparation:

  • Start on a flat, smooth surface in a clear area.
  • Check the Fitter machine for proper setting based on your weight.
  • Step on foot-pads with feet centrally positioned. 
  • Concentrate on proper posture with eyes straight ahead. 
  • If possible, use a mirror or window to see your reflection.

 

How to Do:

  1. From the start position, draw your belly button inward toward your spine.
  2. Maintaining optimal alignment, slowly transfer your weightfrom one foot to the other with a smooth flowing motion.  Workwith the machine!
  3. As your rhythm increases you will get closer to the bumper at each end.  However, posture is more important than distance traveled!
  4. Repeat for desired time/repetitions and always remember to maintain optimum posture with eyes focused in front of you!
