I found this new exercise that I really like a lot. It’s called Nino. I found it on the UWL Exercise Video Index. I like it because it is a very simple exercise in concept, however it is very intense in practice. It works the legs, core, arms & is surprisingly aerobic.
There are just a couple points of form that I want make:
- Your legs start out parallel to each other & just over shoulder width apart. Between each action, your legs should come back to this starting position.
- Keep your back straight at all times. Never round your back. It doesn’t matter how close the bar comes to the ground – just make sure that your chest is forward, shoulders are back, & back is straight.
- When in the down position, you want your hips, feet, knees, shoulders to all be facing perpendicular to the direction your toes were facing at the beginning of the exercise.
- When in the down position, your knee should not extend over the plane of your toe.
I hope you enjoy this exercise as much as I do.
