- Step onto back platform with arms extended forward and hands
on handles. Step onto first pedal platform. As pedal platform
sinks to side place other foot on opposite pedal platform. Select
"quick start" or enter program.
- Shift body weight onto highest pedal platform allowing hip
and knee to straighten as it sinks outward. Simultaneously allow
opposite knee and hip to flex as its pedal platform rises inward.
Shift body weight to opposite side with opposite movement. Repeat.
- Hands may be kept off of handle bars. If handles are used,
avoid transferring too much body weight onto handle bars. Exercise
can be performed bent over with hands on forward base of handles
to emphasis glute involvement or arms in stride with movement
with no contact with handles. Begin at higher resistance for
warm up. Intensity can be increased by decreasing resistance
thereby increasing speed (steps per minute). Also see Skate
