Metabolic Conditioning – Low Impact (Slideboard)


A typical metabolic conditioning method is running or sprinting for given times. This is a very effective method and one we use frequently. However, there are ways to challenge this system with low impact training.  Therefore, we utilize the slideboard equipment. After a fast pace SST muscle prep with the ankling/buttkick plyos, use no rest time between exercises, transition 2 minutes later into the slideboard work. Make sure the slideboard is sprayed with the proper anti-stick formul and proper shoe booties. Have enough slideboards to allow athletes to abide by the rest time (1 person on 1 person off). Encourage the athlete to keep a fast pace while pushing side to side. Below is an example script we use for our professional athletes.
