Warning Always wear approved safety gear, including a helmet, when you luge. If you're not an experienced luger, head out to the track with an instructor. Step 1: Sit up; hold handles Sit up straight on the sled and grab the handles on both sides of the track. Step 2: Push forward Slide the sled forward using your hips, then backwards, and then give it one final massive push forward, letting go of the handles. Step 3: Paddle Paddle against the ice three or four times with your spiked gloves. Step 4: Lean back Lean back with your head back, and your toes pointed straight downhill. Tip Try to keep your head level with the track, despite the strong gravitational pull. Step 5: Steer Steer using your head, shoulders, and calves. Tip Maintain your balance and steer minimally to avoid unnecessary friction. Step 6: Maintain posture and concentration Maintain your posture and concentration, and you'll be at the bottom before you know it. Did You Know? Luge sleds can reach speeds of more than 80 miles per hour.
