For so many of us, there are two major factors that prevent us from getting a workout in: time and space. Scheduling time to work out is one thing that takes a lot of organization and dedication, but finding the physical space to work out should be a no-brainer.
Working out doesn’t require a huge studio, a spacious backyard, or even the need to move your furniture around. Below, find four essential moves that use gliders and light ankle weights. Each targets the core and can be done right from your teeny tiny apartment.
With light ankle weights on, tap right toe in front and put hands behind your head. Pull belly button in towards the spine as you lift leg up to a soccer kick and rotate torso before bringing to starting position. Lean body back after restarting each repetition. Repeat 8 times on both sides.
Take one arm straight out at a diagonal and opposite leg out to the side. Lift knee as you squeeze abs, bringing arm to knee and twisting. Lift and reach back to starting position. Repeat 8 times on both sides.
Starting on your butt with legs out in a V-position. Lean back and lift knees up slowly as you squeeze core tight before bringing legs back down. Repeat 8 times.
Start in a plank position with both feet on one glider, keeping abs tight and elbows in line with shoulders. Shift chest forward, bringing it in front of elbows before returning to starting position. Repeat 8 times.
