Hi everyone, my name is Luca and this is my first post :)

Just two months operating with a Steady and I'm completely falled in love with it!

I'd like to know if there are some well-known exercises for body that you practice!


Thank you very much

Working with the rig is best.


Apart from that, everyone's exercise regimen seems very personal. Speaking to my own, targeted core strength and flexibility are about 50%. The rest are weights and calisthenic exercises I've picked up over the years topped off with cardio, and yoga.


Stretching before and after work seems to play a larger part in avoiding aches and pains the older I get.

The one thing we do that separates us from the rest of the world is walking backwards for a living. Not only walking backwards but with many kilos of gear attached to us in the process. You will find that muscle fatigue and failure will set in quickly the first time you repeatedly do take after take backwards not having prepared.

So prepare. Find a treadmill. Increase the incline and walk backwards slowly for at least 20 minutes or until the burn is intense. I've found that after 20+ years of Steadicam this one exercise has proven invaluable.


Best of luck Luca.

this for me does the job for legs and lower back when I'm not flying the sled. I fly a front mount vest.

Hitting the treadmill hard backwards and stretching are key for me.
