Place hands on bar and step into pedals. Select coarse, effort, time, and push start. Place hands on bar for support.


Slightly bend supporting leg and hip while pushing opposite pedel off to side. Glide extended leg back and repeat opposite motion when foot returns near center. Repeat by pushing off from side to side.


Hands may be kept off of handle bars, either swing arms from side to side or placing hands on hips. If handles are used, avoid transferring too much body weight onto handle bars. Begin at higher resistance for warm up. Intensity can be increased by decreasing resistance thereby increasing speed. Also see Wave Machine.
