How to Get the Most From Sliders

Have you tried doing planks and lunges with sliders? Sliders help add resistance to your core and leg exercises, while stretching your hips, but it’s important to do them properly. Here are some tips to help you get the most from sliders.

Engage Proper Muscles

Make sure you engage your abs by drawing your belly button towards your spine. For exercises that involve driving your knees upward, make sure your abs are assisting the movement.

Understand Your Limitations

It’s easy to hyperextend your joints and muscles when using sliders, so when you’re doing a leg exercises, be aware of your range of motion and limitations. Try starting at a slower pace before you up the intensity.

Don’t Overdo It

Stick with the basics when using sliders because when you overcomplicate things, you sometimes end up missing the benefits of the exercise. Try adding sliders to bear crawls, planks, and mountain climbers. You’ll be incorporating stability and resistance elements into simple moves.
