SLIDISK is an oval-shaped disk made of durable nylon cloth and a light padding inside. Slidisk allows you to slide smoothly on the floor to perform multiple toning, coordination, and stretching exercises. It’s incredibly versatile and encourages a marked dynamic movement. It allows you to engage all muscle groups, lower and upper, with particular effectiveness for toning legs, buttocks, and hips. The destabilization and fluidity of movement resulting from its use make Slidisk versatile from an athletic perspective, both for muscle conditioning and postural training. With Slidisk, every instructor can present numerous courses, personal or group, using an affordable, lightweight, space-saving, and easily portable tool.
Slidisk allows you to use either your feet or hands to do a variety of sliding core exercises. Its double-sided design is suitable for a variety of surfaces.
Dimensions 310 mm x 210 mm.
Thickness 5 mm.
Pair of slide training pads to be used under hands and feet, preferably bare for better proprioception and neuromuscular activation. The Slidisk, also called gliding disk, slide pad, functional slider, allows you to slide easily on the floor to perform multiple exercises for muscle training, coordination, and multidirectional stretching. They are oval-shaped discs made with a resistant nylon cloth and a light padding inside. They are extraordinarily versatile and favoring a high dynamic of movement, the Slidisk pads allow to engage all muscle groups, lower and upper, with particular effectiveness for the training of legs, buttocks, and hips. The fluidity of movement combined with high activation of the core and all stabilizing muscles makes the Slidisk useful for athletic preparation, both in conditioning and postural training.
With Slidisk, every coach can introduce training protocols, personal or group, using a very affordable, space-saving, easily transportable, and extraordinarily useful tool.
Examples of exercises:
– Side Slide: standing on the Slidisk, you perform an alternate side opening of the legs.
– Plank with side slide: in the side holding position, the foot behind is slid forward, passing sideways.
– Climber: from a plank position on the arms, you slide the Slidisk alternately by bringing feet and knees to the chest.
– Pike: from a V or dog face down position, you slide your feet in the direction of your hands.
– Arm Side slide: from plank on the arms, bend the upper limbs by sliding the Slidisk on the frontal plane, powerfully activating the pectorals and abdominals.
– Sink forward, lateral, and back: instead of taking a step forward, you slide your foot forward to activate the adductor muscles as well.
– Abs slide: with the Slidisk under your hands, in a facilitated plank position (with your knees in support), you slide your hands forward and back, with arms outstretched and abdomen tight.
Specific technical exercises for skating, alpine skiing, sports with changes of direction, sports with lateral movements, and pushes of the lower limbs.
– Sagittal and frontal splits: positioned under one or two feet, it facilitates the sliding of the feet, allowing you to concentrate on the correct position of the pelvis and legs.
– Prone butterfly legs: with slide under the feet, it allows the leg to spread laterally, making it easier to open.
