Q. How can I make a smooth transition in a Jumpboard circuit class to move from jumping to reformer plank or wrist bearing exercises like Long Stretch, Down Stretch or Knee Stretches without taking the Jumpboard out and still accommodating a neutral wrist position?

A. The NEW Jumpboard Cross-Bow™ would be a wise choice to address these concerns. The Cross-Bow comes equipped with a curved tubular steel bar, which extends above and beyond the height and width of a standard Jumpboard, an essential feature when it is used for anyone with broader shoulders or individuals requiring a wider stance. There’s no worry of losing your grip as the handles are covered in dense, slip-resistant foam that also provides cushioning to decrease pressure on the joints.  Easy to adjust, increasing or decreasing in height so it can be used in standing and lunging positions on the moveable carriage. In standard plank-based exercises, the increased width of the hand grips ensures that hands, wrists and shoulders stay in optimal alignment, making the moves even more effective.
