Van Damming is a training exercise based on Jean-Claude Van Damme's infamous splits.

Noah witnesses Amanda doing this exercise. Both Noah and Amanda regularly do this exercise at the Jewish Community Centre.[1]


Noah walks in on Amanda Van Damming, which surprises him, as he believed himself to be the only one in the studio who Van Dammed.[1]

Surely enough, both parties Van Damme at the Jewish Community Centre; Amanda goes Tuesdays at 7:30, while Noah goes Thursdays at 8:00. Noah decides that she will switch into Amanda's class, which is possible since the Goldbergs are going south for the winter.[1]

Amanda can Van Damme for 45 seconds, while Noah can Van Damme for 15 seconds.[1]

An optional component of Van Damming is de-Van Damming during which one stretches their legs after Van Damming.[1]


Van Damming comprises of an individual performing the splits with each leg propped up on parallel surfaces. In Amanda's case, she Van Dammes with either foot on a sofa arm.[1]
