For sliding surface training, the two most-popular tools are the slideboard and Valslide.
The slideboard is a long, slick surface with adjustable blocks at the ends that you can propel yourself from. To remove friction, place your hands or feet on cloth booties. If your gym doesn’t have a slideboard, however, you can invest in a pair of Valslides.
The Valslide—named after its founder, Valerie Waters—is a small disc with a smooth underside; when you place your hand or foot on the Valslide, it will slide easily. And, because it’s so small and light, you can take it anywhere and move in countless directions.
Once you have the tools, it’s time to master the moves.
