If you’re tired of your usual exercise routine, grab a towel and challenge yourself with some spicy moves. A towel acts as extra resistance as you push hard to keep it on the floor during exercises. And don’t let it fool you, a towel will really crank up the intensity of your workout.
It does the same things ab sliders do, but in case you don’t have some on hand, a towel will do. Plus, you get to clean your floors a little.
Start in a standing position, with your feet separated at a hip-width distance. Step on the towel with your right leg and slide the towel back into a lunge, bending both knees. Exhale and slide the towel back to the starting position by squeezing your hamstrings and inner thighs. Repeat 12-15 times and do the same thing on the other side.
Keep your core engaged and your back straight throughout the entire exercise. Make sure your front knee is not caving and keep it straight in front of you. Don’t forget to breathe.
