Full Body 11 - Let's Slide!

Keeping things fresh is fun. Finding new ways to challenge yourself in your workouts is even more fun! Today's full body workout uses sliders to do that, and help increase ab involvement, making this a fun and tough workout. This was the first time I ever used these, and it shows, LOL. It was hard, but fun to try something new, so I hope you'll try it! If you don't have sliders, don't worry! If you're on a carpet, sliders are amazing but you can just step your feet in and out. You won't get the same challenge, but it will still be hard. If you're on a smooth surface (tile, wood, etc.) try using felt furniture protectors under your feet, or dishcloths. If you're on a smooth but textured surface, you can try the furniture felt or dishcloths, but you may end up just stepping your feet in and out instead. Try it and see! I got my sliders on Amazon.ca for about $22 + tax. The exact ones aren't available right now or I'd link to them, but search for "Gliding Discs" and you'll find LOTS of options to try :)
Add some weights to make this extra challenging!
