Paperwork Out

Screen Shot 2020-05-14 at 10.26.01 AM

Getting a full body workout doesn’t always require a gym filled with fancy equipment. If you have the will you can thoroughly work your major muscle groups using a simple piece of paper. While body weight only movements are great to do adding a little resistance can increase intensity and strength. One way to increase resistance is by friction using ‘sliding’ movements. While applying downward force and sliding on hardwood flooring or carpet the resistance is dramatically increased. Oftentimes actual exercise sliders are used, but furniture floor sliders work just as well. But in most cases we can perform these same movements with a regular piece of paper on smooth, hard flooring. Socks and towels will work as well. If you only have carpeting then floor sliders or even paper plates are the way to go.

Paper Work: Perform each movement back-to-back without rest for one round. Do 12-15 reps per exercise and 4 rounds total. Rest 2 minutes between each round.
