WORKOUT WEDNESDAY

Gliders are a great way to challenge the entire body and really challenge the core. If you do not have gliders you can substitute with small hand towels. Here are some of our favorite glider exercises.


Glider  Mountain Climbers: 

Start in high plank position with both feet on sliders. Slide right knee forward to chest. Push  knee back to return to high plank. Repeat on the other side.

Glider Knee Tucks:

Start in high plank position with both feet on sliders. Draw in both knees in to touch chest. Focus on keeping  your core tight, and keep hips in line. Push feet back to extend into a high  plank. Repeat.

Glider Side Lunges:

Start standing, start with glider on left food, feet shoulder-width apart. Engage your glutes and send your hips back as you slide left foot to the left side, bending the right leg slightly. Extend the left leg as for as you can. Pull right foot back toward you. Repeat for 10 reps  and switch glider to the other side.

Glider Plank Jacks:

Start in a forearm plank position with both  feet on gliders. Push feet apart to at least hip-width distance, then pull them back together and repeat.
