Towel workout

So hey! 100 years later, as promised, I’m getting around to posting my “towel workout”! Hope you didn’t hold your breath for this one. 🙂

I titled this post “towel workout”, BUT if you have carpet like me, it’s really a “paper plate workout”. Maybe  something other than styrofoam would be better because you end up wearing the plates out during this workout? Although after I did this workout, AND started this post about it, I found the gliders at my most hated store (Wal-Mart) for $9.96, so they came home with me for the next workout.


But here is what I did. With Styrofoam plates. That left me sore for 3 days. We always like that, no? 🙂

1 minute of each, 3 rounds = 36 minutes total

1. Sliding push ups – I did these on my knees, but if you can do them (or some) on your toes, more power to ya! 😉 Just remember that it is a fluid motion. Actually ALL of these are fluid motions…

2. Lunges (1 minute on right leg, 1 minute on left leg)

3. Coasting cobra – start laying flat on your belly and then push your upper body up by sliding your hands in towards your stomach.

9. Plank to tuck


Now if you try this, tell me how many days YOU end up sore! 🙂

Have a great rest of the weekend!

P.S. Found this. Laughed so hard. I mean, if he says it’s hibernation time…
