Using BungyPump the right way

 

1. Turn the pole upside-down. Adjust the pole so that it feels comfortable, roughly at chest height (initially it may be appropriate to adjust the poles 5-10 cm lower, as it is easier to learn the right technique). Lock into position by holding the middle section (B) and turning the lower section (C). Note! You are not allowed to push the lower section longer than the reflexmark.

2. Adjust the handstrap by pulling on the lower strap. Keep the locking device open while you adjust the loop. Press the locking device and pull gently on the two upper straps to lock into position.

3. Slip your hand into the loop from below. Then grasp the handle of the pole. Hold the pole in a comfortable and relaxed way.

4. Place the pole on the ground in line with the back of your front foot or immediately behind your heel. "Gently" place the pole on the ground and then press downwards. Keep the pole pressed down until it is time to take the next step.  Remember that the hand with the strained pole is supposed to come so far back that it passes the hip. Walk och jog. Alternate using your left arm and right leg with your right arm and left leg and so on. Remember: have a straight posture, lower the shoulders, pull in your stomach and look straight ahead. Your arm should be slightly angled and the whole arm will be in the pendulum movement, it is the shoulder joint (not the elbow) that are supposed to work. The poles must always lean back at an angle of approximately 45 degrees.

Do you have problems finding the right technique?

Put your hands in the wrist straps as instructed, start walking and dragging the poles after you. Relax and let your arms swing by theirselfs, after a few steps you will automatically begin to find the right technique (right foot and left arm up at the same time and vice versa). When you feel that you have the right technique you can grab the handles of the poles and walk.

Recommendation: It is perfectly acceptable to use BungyPump training poles both winter and summer, but when not in use, store the poles inside and they will last longer.

Exercise right

When using the BungyPump poles, you should think about having a straight posture, lower the shoulders, pull in your stomach and look straight ahead.  The arm angle should be almost straight. When you press the pole, use your whole arm not just your wrist. It is the shoulder joint that should do the work, not the elbow joint. The pole should lean back at an angle (about 45 degrees). Place the pole in the back of the foot or just behind the heel (the pole should never be put into the ground in front of your foot). Put down the pole "softly" in the ground and then press down. Hold until it is time for the next step. Walk with your right foot and left arm up at the same time, and then vice versa).

 

Now you have found

the right technique!
