Quick Full Body Glider Workout
I know sometimes getting into your favorite class just isn’t in the cards. Maybe you had a meeting run late, family emergency or you’re traveling. Well, I’m giving you 3 moves you basically can do anywhere, all you need are two gilders but honestly even hand towels would work.
I encourage you to stay active and try to find a regular exercise routine, even if you’re busy. Working out is incredibly important to your health and happiness in any way! I find that I get very stressed and anxious when I miss a workout. Even a mini 10-minute workout like this helps me stay healthy and mentally balanced in my everyday life. OK, now on to the workout!
Here’s The Glider Workout:
- Reverse Lunge
- Plank to Pike
- Sliding Tricep Pushup
Do three 45-second sets of each move.
Equipment Needed: Gliders or towels, a smooth floor, and a positive attitude!
Learn the moves with these lovely GIF’s I worked so hard on!
1. Reverse Lunge
Begin standing with toes in the middle of your gliders. Start to bend into your right leg and slide your left foot back into a low lunge. Then return to the starting position.
Then hold your lunge getting as low as you can, begin pulsing down in your standing front leg. Keeping your back leg straight.
Now that you feel the burn try to hold it down a little bit longer. Keep your right leg bend and start sliding your back leg in and out not letting the rest of your body move.
Repeat on the other side.
Make it easier: Remove glider from under the front foot that is not sliding back so you have more stability.
2. Plank to Pike
Start in high plank with both feet in the middle of your gliders. Keeping your shoulders over your wrist, begin engaging your core as you pike hips toward the ceiling, sliding feet in toward hands. Drop your head between your arms and keep your heels lifted. Slide your feet back to return to your position and repeat for 45 seconds.
3. Sliding Tricep Pushup
Start in a kneeling plank position with your gliders under both hands. Start to slide your right hand forward several inches, as your left elbow bends in toward your waist. Press up and away using your left arm and slide your right arm back in. Continue alternating sides for 45 seconds.
Make it harder: Perform the exercise in a high plank position.
I hope you enjoy this workout and get a good sweat!
