Trikke carving vehicles: The new way to stay fit

Trikke has the coolest human body powered carving vehicles on the planet. The Trikke is an innovative three-wheeled vehicle that takes the best of the popular vehicles of today and combines them into a completely new machine in form, function, and riding experience. The patented technology makes it possible for a rider to propel the Trikke forward without pushing or pedalling. If you’re looking for a life-changing fitness machine or a green transportation solution that is a blast to ride, you’re in the right place.

The ‘tri’ in Trikke stands for the number three and this number is very important. Trikkes have three wheels, three extensions, and are accelerated in three stages. The first stage uses mostly the brute force of your arms, the second stage incorporates more of the entire body and the third stage adds rhythm and momentum into the process. There are even three cardinal rules for operating a Trikke: 1) Know your terrain. 2) Rhythm is king. 3) Protect your momentum.

Carving vehicles operate on principles of propulsion. The key to propulsion is using the momentum of one turn to roll you into the next turn and the next. Lean into the turn, and you’re “carving”. Because of the vehicle’s design, a rider can learn to maximize the velocity generated from making each turn and then transfer that momentum into the next turn, and so on. Propulsion can be so effortless that it feels like magic!

If there’s an award for personal transportation vehicle with the best storage and portability options, Trikke would win, hands-down. It folds up into a compact, linear bundle. It can easily be stored by hanging from a hook in your garage or storage room. It also stows nicely in the back of most cars & trucks for excellent transporting & portability. This same portability makes it ideal for various commuting options. It fits easily in the storage bays of buses & trains.

Best for use on: Concrete & paved trails or roads, Level to moderate trails/roads, Wider trails

Best used for: Commuting, Recreation, Adventure Sports, Exercise

Not recommended for: narrow trails, busy roads, soft-surface trails

The following are the health benefits of using Trikke carving vehicles:

Engages Your Entire Body:

From head to toe, riding a Trikke gets your whole body involved. Your arms are moving, your legs are working, your core is turning, all of which translates into a full-body workout like no other.

Engages Your Brain Too:

Because riding a Trikke involves crossing the midline, your brain also gets into the action, helping to keep your noggin engaged and active.

Provides Great Cardio Exercise:

What better way to get your lungs and heart involved than by using your entire body? The Trikke gets you moving in a way that’s natural and intuitive, making you want more!

Good for People from ages 3 to 103:

Whether it’s the very young or the young at heart, Trikkes can be ridden by anyone.

A Great Way to Lose Weight:

Studies have shown that riding a Trikke burns over 650 calories an hour while riding at a speed of 11 mph.

No Impact Exercise:

When riding a Trikke, there’s no jumping up and down and landing on your joints repeatedly. In fact, there’s little or no impact at all!

Combines Strength Training and Cross Training:

Because your muscles and cardiovascular system are engaged, riding a Trikke means you’re getting the best of both worlds: strength training and cross training.

Enhances Balance and Coordination:

When standing on a Trikke, you’re standing on your own two feet, which means, as you ride, you’re also working on your balance and coordination.

No Sports Background Needed:

Riding a Trikke is simple. If you can stand on your own two feet and turn side to side, you too can ride a Trikke.

Online Cricket Clinic- The square cut

If bowlers give most batsmen a short and wide delivery outside off stump, chances are they’ll be hit for four square of the wicket.

The square cut allows batsmen to free their arms and hit the ball with a cross bat, enabling them to get plenty of power on the shot.

But be careful, although a square cut can bag you plenty of runs, it can also lead to your downfall if you get too confident.

STEP 1:

1

The back foot moves back towards the stumps and across towards the line of the ball.

The front shoulder should turn to the off side as the bat is taken back.

STEP 2:

2

The bat is brought down and across, making contact with the ball at full arm extension.

Keep the head still and roll the wrists forwards to keep the ball down.

STEP 3: 

3

Follow through with the shot, leaving the weight on the back foot and the bat finishing over the front shoulder and behind the head.
