Using Furniture Sliders for a Workout

I was watching TV the other day and I saw a commercial for furniture sliders and it got me thinking about using them for exercise. So, I picked up a set and was pretty surprised at the variety of exercises you can do with them.

I showed them to one of the trainers at LifeStyles and she came up with several more right on the spot. I think we’re on to something here. Maybe I’ll have to do a whole series of workouts called “How to exercise with goofy things around your house”.

Try these 12 exercises as a quick circuit and you’ll find yourself working up a sweat pretty fast. I’ve also included a short video of the exercises below. Pick up a set of sliders, try it out, and let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.
