Christmas Countdown: Cross Country Ski December 21, 2015 07:00

The countdown continues! Don't let you daily workout slip these last few days in the lead up to Christmas. 

Todays exercise will have you thinking your on the slopes as you try the Aquastrength Cross Country Ski!

To perform this exercise you will need a set of Aquastrength Bells.

When performing this exercise, ensure you follow the below tips from Dr Rick McAvoy: 

  • Hold bells nice and loose
  • Gently jump in cross country ski motion
  • Opposite arm and opposite leg motion
  • Elbows straight

Start by carrying out the exercise for 45 - 60 seconds, then as you get the movement pattern and feel stronger, increase to 90 seconds. Complete 2 - 3 sets.
