In this quick video, Alisa demonstrates how to use the Airplane Board on the Cadillac. She demonstrates the exercise that gave this accessory it’s name: the Airplane, and shows an additional variation you can use for a more basic level client to teach them to reach out evenly through both legs.

    That was really helpful in illustrating the exercise. I am wondering which hook I should use on my Gratz tower unit using a low mat. Thanks!

      Hi LBcutie,
      The hook you use depends a bit on your size and which spring you choose. If you’re on the petite side, use the higher leg spring hook (I think it’s the 4th one up from the bottom) and a heavier spring (like a Leg Spring). If you’re taller or very strong, you can challenge yourself more by using a lighter spring and the 3rd hook from the bottom. I look for the setting that works best for the body in front of me so if something’s not working for you, don’t be afraid to try a different arrangement.

    Great, thanks for the more beginner version, too. Will try that with clients who are not ready for the full take off!
