Okay, I'm doing this exercise while standing on the balance board. When I tap my left foot on the left side of the board (while standing on right foot), it registers perfectly. But when I try to tap my left foot on the right side of the board (still standing on right foot), I get a 0 score no matter what. Same for the other side (standing on left foot, tapping right foot on left side).
I had the SAME problem- could not get it to register- if I cheated and banged my foot on the board during bicycling it registered... so not cheating I get no score??? As far as the leg swing it was potluck... (-: Biggest Loser WII is better because it actually shows which foot to use... and better all around in my view
figured out the bicycle after it registered 0 points my 1st try! When your legs go down they must go ALL the way down - you have to his the Wii board with the back of your leg each time. Try it - it works (and tears up your abs at the same time!)
This post saved me from "swing kicking" the balance board right through the TV. I was getting so frustrated. T.Bognar is absolutely correct. Do the exact opposite of what she's doing on the screen (i.e. pretend you are standing behind her) and tap your foot on the top of the board - not the side. Works every time.
Do not stand on the wi board. Stand directly behind hit with foot in middle. Make sure you tap your foot on the edge of the board when you swing it. I had difficutly in figuring this out, again your foot should be in middle of board behind it.
