Most Important: MUST be anchored 24-36 inches apart, using the entire black rail straps. Must be 36-40 inches from ground NO LOWER.
Watch all beginner, & Advanced, Videos.
Think of the Inertia Wave products as a jumping rope, that engages your entire body. It’s part of a circuit...an intense cardiovascular bout which has extreme demands over a 30 to possibly 60 second window. Ask yourself "if I went all out how long can I jump rope without getting winded?" You would use the Inertia Wave in the same way.
Each Inertia Wave product has a set of exercises called the "Methods of Use" designed by the inventor himself to give you the most optimal workouts. Watch and perform these methods and each time see if you can endure them longer and longer as you increase your stamina, and cardiovascular endurance.
The Inertia Wave can be used for many things. You can use it as a warm-up before your workout, as its own high intensity interval training, or as a cool down after your workout. It all depends on the intensity and your perceived rate of exertion. You can use it between body weight exercises as what's called "active rest". Instead of doing boring cardio machines, do 10 minutes of your favorite IW methods.
Feel free to get creative! Once you've mastered the methods of use, add some lower body movement patterns like step-back lunges, pop squats, fast feet, side shuffles, etc. Work it into your own routine in a way that works for you. The possibilities are endless.
Here are the Verbal & Tactile Cues for Coaches, and Trainers
All Below : If you don’t hear an incredible wind sound, you know you need to walk back more, put more tension, put your feet closer together, follow below...
1- Decide whether you’re going to use the pronated grip (Seen in Beginners Video) with your fist under your rib cage, elbows back, sternum, high, looking over the Horizon, ….
OR…. The advanced methods, which I recommend. The ADVANCED VIDEO is a thumbs up position, fist on the side of your cheeks, elbows in 90° of flexion, never changes… Pump the tubes up and down with the elbow joint keeping that 90° of flexion in the elbow … Elbows are basically pointed towards the ground out in front of you. GET the tubes to rise & fall from the center. Keep the rhythm, don’t muscle it or it will look sloppy.
BEGINNER Hold end caps securely
Hold end caps and walk back, with elbows back, until it feels like its “slightly pulling you forward”
Keep all your weight towards “heel box” (mid foot to back of ankle)
ADVANCED - Grab the end caps in the THUMBS UP position, FIST on the sides of your cheeks.
Try not to stand with feet wider than 12 inches apart
Stay loose and don’t muscle it, or it will be floppy, and won’t oscillate properly
If you don’t hear an intense wind sound you know you’re not walking back far enough, or putting enough tension or intensity into the movement. …You must hear a wind sound! Every method! (18 in all)
Always anchor the INERTIA WAVE 24-36 inches apart, 36-40 inches off ground.
Never stand with feet wider than 12 inches!
Stand tall, look over the horizon, have a slight bend in ankles, knees, and hips
Have a slight bend in your ankles, knees, hips and look over the horizon at all times… Never look down
Try not to look down
Shake the water off your hands (Our favorite)
Keep cervical posture neutral at all times- always look over the horizon.
Try not to muscle it, the tubes will start to lose energy and slow down
(NEVER) extend your arms out in front of you.
NEVER OMIT RAIL STRAPS
ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY STRAPS WITH INERTIA WAVE ®️DUO
NEVER ANCHOR DUO
