KUSA - This edition of Workout Wednesday features exercises you can do at home with paper plates. Trainer Jamie Atlas from Bonza Bodies Fitness has some fitness tips:
Exercise 1: Side Slide
A great exercise to get your butt and thighs in shape! Take a paper plate, rest it on the floor and slide a leg out and to the side, keeping both toes pointed to the front (make sure to keep your balance and weight on the grounded leg while sliding the leg out to the side). Add a dumbbell or bag of groceries for extra challenge.
Exercise 2: Slide Tilt
This is a great butt exercise for those looking to tighten up the backside. Instead of out to the side, now slide the leg back while tilting forward and reaching down to the ground in front with both hands. Keep knee tilt to a minimum to maximize glute and hamstring muscle involvement.
Exercise 3: Paper Plate Push ups
For sculpted shoulders and chest, this exercise can't be beat. One hand on a plate, other hand on the ground, start with both hands together then slide one hand out to the side as you drop down into a push up.
Exercise 4: Mountain sliders
Mountain climbers with paper plates to slide the feet. If you want a strong core and fat burning exercise this is the best.
You will need two paper plates for this exercise underneath your toes. Holding a plank position on hands, slide legs back and forth as you would for a mountain climber exercise.
