Skier's Edge Question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I purchased a 1st generation skiers edge machine and starting to use it.  I have the resisitance settings at 5, which is less than the recommended tension for my weight of 180lbs.  Despite this, I can't seem to get the large range of motion that I see on the videos.  I am confident that the power bands are installed correctly.  Can anyone tell me if it is just a question of acclimation and eventually I will be able to increase my range?  Thanks!

The harder you work the machine, the more travel. In my daily work out I do not come close to max travel, but when I really crank down and make hard, fast 'turns', I nearly max it out.

The better shape you are in, the 'bigger' turns you will make at a faster pace.  Make sense?

I would say it takes around 5000 turns to really get balanced and accustomed to the machine.

Try it without poles...carefully.

I've found the same thing that Snowfan stated.  It takes time to get use to it and get it really working.  Be careful without poles.  Its a great workout.
