Begin by holding the ViPR vertically to the right side of your body with your left hand on top and your right leg with knee bent in front of your left, as shown.

Then jump slightly reversing your leg position while swinging the ViPR across your body, spinning it as you do so, so that your left leg is now in front and your right hand on top. Repeat this process from side to side in a fluid rhythmic motion.

Another exercise using the ViPR (Vitality, Performance and Re-conditioning) piece of equipment, and one which intensifies the cardio requirements of the standard Speed Skater exercise, but it also adds in the extra ballistic impact on the core and upper body.
