Who says you need an expensive membership to get a great workout. Ladies, I am happy to break it to you, you don't even need equipment--or shoes. 'Coz Sunday calls for a chill workout, but a fitness routine that re-energises your body. And all you need today is a pair of socks to do this total-body workout in under 10 minutes.
This socks-and-slide workout targets every muscle in your lower body and at the same time gives you some great cardio and balance benefits. If you don't have hardwood or any smooth surface, you can also use paper plates beneath the sliding foot.
Ready to get sweaty?
How it's done: Start by standing with your feet hip-width apart. If using a paper plate to slide, place it under your sliding foot. Start with sliding your right foot straight out to the side and bend your left knee. Now, pull your right leg back as you stand up straight and return to the starting position. Do 15 reps and then switch legs for another 15 reps.
Stretches your hamstrings, works the side of your glutes
How it's done: If you are using a paper plate, place them under both feet. Start by getting in a high plank position, your arms shoulder-width apart and your wrists under your shoulders. Now, slide your feet apart and bring them together again. Do 3 reps and then slide your right foot forward to bring your right knee to your chest. Return to the starting position and draw your left foot forward to bring your left knee to your chest. Continue this exercise alternating between each for 60 seconds.
How it's done: Your feet slightly apart from each other. Raise your left heel, slide your left diagonally behind you and bend both knees. Try to create two 90-degree angles with your legs. Push through the heel of your right foot as you slide your left foot back to the starting position. Do 15 reps and then switch legs for another 15 reps.
