Unlimited functional slide-training
6D SLIDING is the name of an innovative slide-training concept that allows you to train your muscles in all six directions of movement. Up, down, right, left, back and forth, plus all the rotations. It is about improving the body’s stability, balance, strength, endurance, technique and coordination.
The result is a training concept that is as effective and varied as it is inspiring and gentle. The physical benefits of slide training are undebatable. Your muscles are challenged both statically and dynamically, and your balance is increased.
Total workout anywhere, anytime
As a cardio workout, 6D SLIDING is difficult but in a fun way. It’s easy to intensify your training so you can achieve significant fat burning. Slide-training movements are related to many other classic sports movements but with focused moves in all directions, and rapid starts and stops. This kind of training helps to stabilise your body’s core muscles.
A 6D SLIDING workout is a perfect addition to strength training. The exercises are known as “closed-chain” training meaning that the hands and feet form a closed chain with the ground, so you move in contact with the ground. This kind of motion provides a workout without excessive muscle stress and is a good option for physical rehabilitation.
STABILITY · BALANCE · STRENGTH · ENDURANCE · TECHNIQUE · COORDINATION
The 6D SLIDING workout can be performed on any floor with a smooth surface. The exercises tighten and firm up the core muscles, that is your abdominal and lower back muscles. To get the best out of the exercises, keep your focus on both breathing and technique while you are doing them. You’ll soon get visible and tangible results.
A program typically takes between 20-30 minutes depending on how many exercises you want to do. We recommend a minimum of 6 exercises, phased over 2-3 sets with 10-15 repetitions.
You should do the exercises at least 2-3 times a week. Incorporate the exercises into your daily routines and tasks. You can also improve your results by including a slide-training workout with other exercises that you do.
How to do 6D SLIDING
Multiple levels of intensity
You can perform the 6D slide-training at many different levels. You increase the level by using more sliders at the same time. Start out with a single slider and try more if you want to be challenged. 6D slide training uses your body weight to develop your strength. As you become more experienced with slide-training, you can use your imagination and incorporate other tools into your training. For example, you could challenge yourself with extra weights such as a body bar or dumbbells.
The exercises are simple and initially may seem quite easy. But you can increase the intensity with many exercise variations. Choose a slightly harder exercise or combination of exercises when you feel ready, so you continually increase your strength and endurance.
