Galileo Training Exercise EW11

Exercise EW11: Dips (hard)

Exercise for advanced users

Goal: Strengthening of Triceps, shoulder back, upper back

Accessories: Ikea step (light plastic step)

Parameters: Frequency: 26-33 Hz / Position: 2-2.5 / Duration: 60-90 seconds

Posture: Place Ikea centric and step next to the front edge of the Galileo platform. Legs are straight, weight on heels, upper body straight, hand sit on the front edge of the Galileo plate (only palm rests on the plate, the finders jut out over the device and can touch the housing)
Movement: Slowly bend the arms, until the but almost touches the ground, then slowly extend the arms again until they are almost straight. Keep arms always at least slightly bent, to allow an efficient exercise and to minimize transmission of vibration to the head. Goal is to completely exhaust the muscles.

Repetitions: Repeat exercise 2-3 times with a pause of 1-3 minutes in-between.

Variation: The exercise can be performed static (hold lowest possible position without touching the ground) as well as dynamically (very slow!) as shown in the video.

Tip 1: To decrease intensity, you can put a folded towel or a piece of a Yoga mat underneath the hands.

Tip 2: To increase intensity, you can put your feet on top of a stepper (which should be not higher than the Galileo+Ikea step).
