    lift that ass!

    any advice for doing a sliding board transfer when you have really shitty triceps?
    that's just the way I roll.

    What kind of board are you using?
    Are you doing pretty much level transfers?
    Are you leaning forward so that your chest is nearly directly on your thighs?
    Are you rotating your shoulders so that your elbows lock (with your hands pointed backward)?

    Though a C-6, I have pretty shitty triceps, too. No matter how much I worked them, nothing. So, in rehab, I learned to compensate by building up my shoulder strength and my biceps. It also helped that I got some technique training but I was very successful using a wood sliding board (back in those days). HOWEVER, within a year after working out, I gave up the sliding board and now do independent transfers due to the strength I gained. That wasn't the only reason as I learned to balance myself by leaning forward just enough so that my ass is just slightly off the surface and simultaneously use the momentum to push myself off my ass and land on wherever I intended to.

    If I were you, I would work on gaining enough strength first and then complement it with trying out various techniques.

    thanks for the info...... i'm a C4-C5 incomplete, my right side is a lot stronger than my left.

    i can lock my arms and push through my shoulders but it doesn't seem like my rear is coming up enough to slide.

    i'm going to keep practising because i know i can do it!

    Anty, perhaps you mean a Beasy Trans? The downside of these is how heavy they are, and you have to be very careful using one naked...I have seen scrotum pinches.

    I think Anty's scrotum is safe..........

    Alex........you have to improve balance so you can lean forward as you slide....get the weight off your ass

    Alex,

    I use this type of transfer board.

    I´ve had good experiences using them. You may want to check it out.
